Not only that but it’s a huge processor hog as well. During an import a related process (dmimport maybe, can't remember for sure and I'm not in front of my iMac right now) will fire up and hog what ever is not being used by everything else. The fans rev up to high and a lot of the time don't go back down to normal, near silent operation. That process (check it out in Activity Viewer) sometimes won't give up on the CPU usage for quite some time after the import. Really annoying!
I am seeing this too! Glad to know that it is not just me - I thought I must be doing something wrong. I have also posted questions about this - hopefully, the more posts that there are, the faster Apple will fix the performance bugs in iPhoto 6.
I switched from PC to Mac, and had read lots of reviews talking about how good Apples are at graphics. But usin Iphot 6 on my new dual core iMac feels about 100 times slower than my lesser-powered 3 year-old PC.
Until Apple fix the performance bugs of iPhoto, I will probably not use it that much.
Anyway, that is my two cents....
