Need an "Add to iPhoto..." folder
Authored by: leamanc on Nov 10, '11 08:50:42AM

It would be neato if Apple would create an "Add to iPhoto Automatically" folder, like the one they have for iTunes. I have a Mac mini hooked to my HDTV/home theater, and all of the music files that me and the rest of the family collect get copied to the folder that adds to the mini's iTunes automatically (the folder is shared via AFP and SMB). This way, everyone's music is in the home theater system, plus we've got extra copies in case the original files get lost for whatever reason.

We used to just use a generic shared folder as a dumping ground for music, connect to the mini via VNC, and from there drop the audio files into iTunes. The new method is obviously a lot faster. If Apple would implement a similar folder for iPhoto, it would seem to solve a lot of various issues that people have with getting their photos into iPhoto with little manual effort.
