Selective iPhoto Import
There are many times when I just wish iPhoto had a selective import feature where I could select exactly what picture I want to import. Sometimes, I'm on a friend's computer and I just want to give a few pics or sometimes I have work pictures and family pictures on the same memory card and I want to upload the pics on two different computers. Unfortunately, iPhoto 6 doesn't include this built-in but it is still hidden there in the code. When you hook up your camera, iPhoto 6 brings up an import dialog where you basically only have the choice to "Import" and "Delete items from camera after importing". But, when you are there, you can click on Return (or Enter) twice and you will switch to edit mode. You don't want to edit your photo there as they are still on the camera. You unfortunately don't have thumbnails as thumbnails are actually smaller version of the image created when importing and you didn't import yet. The interesting thing is that you can look at the image one by one and drag the one you want to your Library. Plain and simple!
