    I am having problems attaching pictures with iPhoto '08. With iPhoto '06, I can easily go into any folder within the Mail application. Now, with iPhoto '08 iit has to be done within iPhoto by choosing 'Email'

    I also need to drag the file out of iPhoto '08 inorder for me to attach it using gmail etc..

    Is there any other way to do this?

    You can right-click on the iPhoto Library, select 'Show Package Contents.' The Data folder will contain the JPG thumbnails. The Originals folder will contain the original image files.

    Another way is from iPhoto, select the image(s) and do a File->Export. This will create images on the format/size you want to a folder you select, so you can easily attach them in Gmail.

    Yes, i know the 'show package contents' the thing is i cant do that using Mail, its just the whole IPhoto folder.

    Exporting/dragging is i think the best way to attach files.

    Is there a trial version of ilife '08 that is downloadable?
    If yes, if I install it, would it overwrite ilife'06?
    m scared of messing up my mac.....

    AFAIK, there is no trial version but it is already available in the Apple Store.
