Use pictures stored anywhere with iPhoto6
Authored by: jiclark on Jan 24, '06 01:18:58PM

Could you update us here as you delve into this further? I, too, use iView currently, but would love to take advantage of this new feature in iPhoto6, but not if it's really not implemented very well…

Why would the alias (most likely a symbolic link, in actuality) need to be huge???

From all I've read (no iPhoto 6 here yet) it does use aliases, not symbolic links. Aliases store a fair amount of data in their resource forks (including the original app icon, I think) so it's not unusual to see larger numbers of them consuming significantly more space than symlinks.
