    I was wondering if using the all naurtal peanut butter (no sugar added) would work well with this recipe? What peanut butter did you use?[] Reply:August 13th, 2012 at 9:50 AMI always use JIF (not naurtal). Not sure if the all naurtal will work as I never tried it for this recipe. Sorry I couldn’t help more![]

    Well after that nice compliment you just gave me, I guess I can’t give you just a one snecnete answer and send you on your way! For that compliment, I will give you the house special answer. So let me take a crack at this. Oh and YES, your explanation this time is divine — I am not completely up to speed. iPhoto is a great application for photos on the Mac — especially for those that don’t want to learn how it works. What I mean is, iPhoto does a great job at letting you do what you want to do without having to know how it’s doing it. By default, when you start using iPhoto, that box next to Import — copy items to the iPhoto library because they don’t want the majority of their users (I presume) to feel the need to worry about where their photos are being saved as long as iPhoto handles it for them safely and securely. So with this default option checked, whenever you import photos into iPhoto, whether it be from a camera, a cell phone or from a folder on your hard drive or an external drive, iPhoto will COPY — not MOVE — your photos into a secure nest called the iPhoto library. Once it makes its own copies, from then on iPhoto is like — if I may be cute here — a big fat cuddly penguin sitting on this nest of eggs (your photos), doing everything it can to protect them.Now, what you did was made a COPY of this nest and put it in your Dropbox folder. So you have a nest on your hard drive, and a duplicate of this ENTIRE nest in your Dropbox folder. When you went to dropbox.com (online), Dropbox was kinda acting like a zoo keeper letting their family visit the zoo — it let you get closer to the nest than you really should have. In fact, it let you reach into the nest touch the eggs when the penguin went to grab a snack. If you tried doing this on your Mac (in the Finder), you would have had a harder time peeking inside (the nest). You have to control-click on the nest (library file) and then select Show Package Contents. This is your Mac’s way of telling you, You know Tracie, iPhoto really doesn’t want or need to you to poking around in there. But if you’re sure you want to take the risk, okay, here you go. So once you are poking around in this nest, you are now seeing how iPhoto is handling your photos. You are correct to assume originals is where your master image files are being saved — the ones without any kind of edits added to them from within iPhoto (like color correction and cropping etc). But, you don’t wanna do anything in here unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing. Mess something up, and your iPhoto application may not understand why things are different and may begin to operate incorrectly — if not at all!Now, the other way you can operate iPhoto, and probably not the way most people should proceed, is to deselect that option in the settings ( copy items to the iPhoto library, and take FULL responsibility to where the master images (originals) are stored. It puts all the pressure on you to find a safe place to — er hide your eggs and protect them so that they aren’t damaged or stolen (deleted). You are without a protected nest.For example, let’s say you have a folder of images on your desktop. The box we are talking about is NOT checked, and so when we import these images into iPhoto, your images aren’t copied into the Library, they stay right where they area0— inside that folder on the desktop. What will happen is anytime you load iPhoto, it will look for this folder on your desktop and will access these originals as THE master image files (originals). This method is referred to as Reference files in professional editing programs — like Apple’s Aperture.So when I was asking you in a poor way whether you had your library set to store them in the same location as they were (blah blah) this is what I meant. Okay, so your question really is, if I let the Penguin sit on my eggs and protect them, (with that box we keep speaking of checked), is there any way I can get the Penguin to sit on the eggs in the order and way that I would like them to be, and not the way she wants to sit on them which is all of the eggs (photos) organized by year? (grin this is getting silly huh?) The short answer, as I understand it, is No. There really isn’t a way. Sorry. Doh! Now in Aperture, the big brother to iPhoto, you CAN. You can have your photos be referenced (stored outside of the Aperture library nest ) and then move your photos around inside of the program anyway you want. Once you get them how you want them in events (projects), you can click a couple buttons and tell it to actually MOVE and ORGANIZE all your master images around on the hard drive to exactly match the organizational structure you built within Aperture.iPhoto, again as I understand it, doesn’t have this more advanced option. You can reference your files, like I discussed above, and have them all organized on your hard drive the way you want them in folders BEFORE you import them into iPhoto, but once you start moving around your photos inside of iPhoto with Events, it will not move the master images on your hard drive. And if YOU move them on your hard drive, iPhoto may not be able to find them without relinking them — telling iPhoto where you moved them to. (Could be risky — I haven’t tested this out yet)So is there a workaround? Yes. You may not want to hear it though.If all you are trying to do (as you asked in your first comment) is to retrieve your images (just get them all OUT of iPhoto but in the same organizational structure), you can just Export them out:You can click on an event, then go up to File at the top, and choose Export. Make sure you select Original next to Kind: so that it doesn’t compress your images. You want to export OUT of the nest, copies of your original master images. Then select either Filename or Version name for the name. The Filename will be the name your camera gave the images (probably), or what they were name before you imported them into iPhoto. This method will export out all of the images in this event — just make sure you export them into a folder that you name the name of the event that you had in iPhoto — like Billy’s Birthday etc. So you will have to do a lot of work building folders to match each event, BUT, it is a workaround.By the way, if you have the box checked for letting iPhoto manage your photos, and decide to uncheck it right now, nothing bad will happen. Your photos that iPhoto is managing will stay managed. What will happen (again as I understand it), is any photos from today ON will be managed by you as referenced files. Once you check the box again, then iPhoto will begin managing your files again. If I am wrong on this, someone reading this please let me know. Now, another option is you could pay $79.99 on the and download Aperture. You could move your library into Aperture and have Aperture relocate your master images out to say, an external hard drive, and have them organize it in the same structure as your events (projects as they are called in Aperture). Aperture and iPhoto work really well together since they are both written by Apple. So you wouldn’t have to start over with your Event structure. It should all rebuild inside of Aperture just as you have it in iPhoto. Only in Aperture, you can also use folders to organize your Events (Projects).Sorry. This comment is Epic in scale. I will take this and turn it into a post I believe. Hope this helps! Let me know what you decide to do after reading this Epic long comment. I’ll be curious to know.Best, Curtis

    Working with an old Mac, running OSX, and when the exenrtal drive is plugged into the Mac the only available formats appear to be Mac OS Extended (Journaled), Mac OS Extended, UNIX File System, Windows NT Filesystem, and Windows NT Filesystem (compressed) (which I gather is the NTFS you mention above). Will any of those formats work with a PC. I am able to get my iTunes Music onto the exenrtal drive, but then when I plug it into the PC, the PC does not see the exenrtal drive. Thoughts?
