Improve iPhoto5 performance by setting thumbnail size
Authored by: dzurn on Jun 27, '05 11:15:42AM

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.
