Improve iPhoto5 performance by setting thumbnail size
Authored by: bakalite on Feb 16, '05 05:39:15PM

I played around a bit, and what I found is that there seems to be a point of diminishing returns. If the picture is big enough to take up the whole window, then performance is reasonable. If the picures are small enough to be below the threshhold where the thumbnails get used, performance is also reasonable. However, if the pictures are of a size where more than one fits on the screen AND too big for iPhoto to use the thumbnails, then performance really suffers. In practice, this means the slider should either be all the way over to the right, or only a little more than half way.
