Make iTunes Talk to iPhoto
Authored by: Señor Epiphyte on Oct 17, '05 10:12:30PM

What do you do when iPhoto has been volunteering to communicate with your digi-cam and it now possesses all of your .avi files? It doesn't seem to want to give them up easily.

I can't really believe that I have to open the entrails of iPhoto to root out all the .avi files and then drop the interesting ones to an AppleScript just to then watch them on my new iPod Movie via alia.

This part all seems very un-Applesque.

Find them in iPhoto and drag them where you want. There's a Movies smart playlist by default.

Sure enough. I was able to drag an AVI from iPhoto to the desktop space, but it still seems a bit incomplete for Apple to not provide some built-in communication between these applications (a la iPhoto to iMovie). It's not very iLife-ish.

I am a big, huge fanatic of the iPhoto library holding all sorts of non-JPG stuff from GIF to TIFF, MOV to AVI, even PSD. It's all there... I like it!

I've been using Image Capture to import AVI files (to the Movies folder, to organize later) and deleting them from the camera before importing the remaining images into iPhoto.

Hopefully iTunes and iPhoto can eventually share overlapping content since both now support video. Is there a good solution to the underlying issue of these apps having separate libraries? iPhoto can access audio tracks of some videos from the iTunes library (for slideshows) but not the video tracks. And iMovie can access both iTunes and iPhoto libraries. Might iTunes and iPhoto libraries eventually merge into a single "media content" library that those and other apps can more easily share?

The way you say volunteering, i guess you don't want iPhoto to automatically communicate with your digital cam???

To stop iPhoto "volunteering" you need to change the settings in Image Capture which you will find in the appications folder.
