10.4: System-wide iPhoto browser
Authored by: Toadling on May 01, '06 09:01:08AM

This is a neat idea. I added a "Copy to Clipboard" action after the "Ask for Photos" in the hope that selecting the choose button would actually copy the selected photos to the clipboard for pasting into a document. But it seems to only copy the image paths instead - still usefull but not really what I was looking for.

Another way to accomplish this, however, is to use a utility like LaunchBar or Quicksilver. Both allow browsing of your iPhoto Library, selection of images, and copying of paths or image content to the clipboard.

Quicksilver is perhaps a little better at this sort of thing because it shows thumbnails of the photos (at least with the Bezel interface), allows selection of multiple files with the "comma syntax", and even allows drag and drop of images from Quicksilver to a document.

Heresy perhaps but I've been using Adobe's Bridge (launched at startup) to do exactly this.
Bridge doesn't take the resources of iPhoto (or Photoshop obviously), provides a click-n-drag GUI and lets you create Favorite folders. Helps to have second monitor.
