Improve iPhoto5 performance by setting thumbnail size
Authored by: Panjandrum on Feb 16, '05 07:54:53PM

It is a little unclear as to whether this hint forces iPhoto to create larger thumbnails in the first place, or if it simply changes the scaling amount dictated by the slider so that the largest thumbnail setting you can access is lower than 240 pixels.

One of the reasons I don't use iPhoto is due to this long-standing issue (this isn't new with iPhoto 5, it's been there all along). 240 pixel thumbnails simply aren't large enough for me, so using iPhoto was always painfully slow.

So, which is it?

iPhoto using AOL for mail broken

AOL is now greyed out in iPhoto preferences as a email choice with the latest AOL version....anyone have a solution? Even thought AOL saves the last version, booting it up doesn't help.

I doubt that iPhoto changes the thumbnail size. This hint only refers to the display of the thumbnails that iPhoto has already collected. If it has to perform scaling on-the-fly on every photo view, that is slower than just tossing the thumbnail as is to the screen.

In other words, at the "2" view level, iPhoto doesn't have to do any processing of the original photo or scaling of the thumbnail, it just shoots the thumbnail as-is to the display.

Madness takes its toll.
Please have exact change.
