Import selected photos from memory cards to iPhoto
Authored by: SeƱor Epiphyte on Jan 01, '06 09:14:56PM

iPhoto flags items off my chip as duplicate if already imported, so I select "don't import" at the first duplicate and check the box to treat all duplicates the same way.

Result is all new pictures are loaded, nothing is duplicated, and all photos remain on the chip.

good plan...unless you edit your pictures

Your suggestion of relying on iphoto to point out duplicates when importing will only work if you have done ZERO editing of the originally-imported version of the photo.

e.g. I tried the following in iPhoto 5.0.4:
-imported a file ("IMG_8888.jpg") into my iphoto library
-tried a second import of the same file... the "Duplicate Photo" dialog (as expected)
-canceled the import
-did a "retouch" on this photo
-once again tried an import of the same file...
-...NO complaints from iphoto this time.
