Default Downloading/Editing software choices for Nikon and MAC

I've been using I-Photo to download from my Lumix FZ35 and Fuji cameras to my MAC book with system 10.5 . Is the file info (camera settings) available for each shot somewhere in I-Photo ?

I've got a D80 now and the software that came with it ( Picture Project) doesn't seem to work with OS 10.5 . So we've downloaded Capture NX for the 30 day free trial and it seems ok with file info available. Any other choices I should look at ?

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply wave 01. Actually we hadn't tried downloading the D80 to Iphoto yet. I had assumed the file info wouldn't be there and tried the Nikon software instead. I will try locating the file info in Iphoto.

Default I Photo

I found the little i Icon and clicked on it. It brings up the photo information but it's not much: JPEG number, date, time, and file size.

You should find a command labelled "Get Info" under the "Photos" menu. It will bring up a dialog box with 3 tabs of information. The "Exposure" tab will give you more details on the camera settings at the time of exposure.

It sounds like you might benefit from some introductory material. I'm partial to the 'Take Control' series of ebooks. There is a free 55 page introduction to iPhoto (iPhoto 09: Visual QuickStart Guide) that should help you decide if you want to pop the U$15 for the full publication.

You might need to upgrade your iPhoto, but it certainly should work.

If you want an easy upgrade to iPhoto with lots more "pro" functionality you could look at Apple's Aperture.
