    I've been using iPhoto to download my photos from my camera, but I'm curious if there is something better.

    The biggest gripe I have, I would like to be able to delete photos that are blurry/I just don't want from iPhoto, rather than having to go grab them manually from my pictures folder.

    Help. :wiggle:

    :noes: Aperture looks intimidating and probably overkill..."made for professionals."

    If it's relatively easy to use (good interface) I'll consider it, any others?

    manual management > software

    but that is because I need direct access to the file for other purposes

    It's easy as piss. I honestly believe that they designed it for photographers who are scared of computers.

    Aperture is pretty good, you may want to look into Adobe Lightroom as well. Its very smiliar.

    For Mac, go for Aperture over Lightroom.

    What are the main advantages between the two?

    Using Aperture, once I import the photos, where are they stored? It look likes in the "Aperture Library", but I can't view individual files.

    Nice...I'll have to play with Aperture more.

    Just out of curiousity, how large is your Lightroom application?

    The one I've found is only 20Megs, but says it's a complete version.
