"iPhoto and D50"

Good news for Mac users! Upgrading to the latest version of the Mac OS (10.4.3) allows importing of D50 raw files into iPhoto. Editing them will turn them into JPEGs however you will be able to revert to the RAW file if needed.

Preview will now also open RAW files.

Thanks for the tip. I've been considering playing with RAW and didn't even know there was an iPhoto issue! Glad to hear it's been fixed!

Cheers!

A big thank you for posting this tip. I have been trying to import RAW files into iPhoto with no success. Apple's web site listed the D70 as a supported camera, but not the D50. But after I downloaded and installed 10.4.3, it worked fine. Thanks again.

PS -- I wonder how many Mac users there are among the Nikonians.

That's good to know. However, I find iPhoto to get unusably slow once you get above a few hundred photos, as it loads in every photo simultaneously. Not only is it slow, but the whole computer becomes unresponsive, which is quite unusual in OSX.

I have more than 1000 pictures in iphoto with no real response issues (I am running a dual 1 GHZ G4 with 1.5 GB RAM). Performance will improve if you have adequate RAM (ie. more than 512mb)... you might also want to get a program to run the Cron utilities to make sure your system is performing up to speed.... I'd also suggest you use Activity monitor to see if some stray background process is casuing your problems....

Sounds like you are on iPhoto 4.
iPhoto 5 is noticieably quicker than before.

Now that the Mac theme has sprung up.. how about comments or reviews of Apple's new Aperture app?
