I find iPhoto lacking on how the importing is structured. I want to create folders directly when importing. Filmrolls is restrictive, I hope Events is better.
I collect photos off the internet of all kinds, widescreen desktop photos, vintage photos, space photos etc. It's a pain that everytime I import some new photos they go to a new 'Filmroll'. I want all my space photos to go directly in a 'Space' folder. I know you can create a folder or album AFTER the Library but I want the organization in the top level of the library. I now drag new photos from new Film rolls into pre-exisitng film rolls and it works but is clumsy, and needs a lot of reformatting as things are moved around a lot.
I don't need photos organized by date so much, but that is the priority sort for iPhoto.
Well, rant over, iPhoto has some nice features but the limited import set up is a negative for me.

I know what you mean Gigaguy. I know these applications are trying to keep everything foolproof, but sometimes it feels like iPhoto's (& iMovie's) rigid structure is behaving like a strict headmistress: "You either do it my way, or not at all!"

I hear you too.

However it's tough strike the perfect balance between simplicity and flexibility. This is why many PC users hate Macs, they tend to favor simplicity over flexibility.

And yes. I believe this issue is what "events" takes care of.
