I want to organize our digital photos once and for all

Our family photos are a mess. We have 4ish years of mostly unedited, unsorted photos in iPhoto. I'd like to get a handle on what's there, sort and/or edit, possibly print some books (our son was born in 2011) and create a system that helps us avoid this disaster going forward. More details inside. [more inside]

Photo Organization with Visual Browsing Capability? Or Just Tag It All?

I want to improve my digital photo organization at work, and I don't care about anything in iPhoto except Events. Unfortunately, I really appreciate being able to visually browse Events as a central database of every photo upload ever. It feels like there's no easy visual browsing in the Adobe suite, is this true? Should I just get better at using keywords in Bridge, or is there something magical in Lightroom that I don't know about? [more inside]

I hate iPhoto with a fiery passion. Please help me find an alternative.

While I have plenty of experience with PCs, I am a Mac person who is currently using a MacBook Pro (OS X, but it's more than 3 years old), an iPhone, and a Canon SLR. I upgraded to the full version of iPhoto awhile ago thinking it would make me like iPhoto better. It has not. I'm leaning towards Adobe PhotoShop Elements 12, but I am not sure if that is the best alternative or if there is another one I should be considering. Some additional info inside. [more inside]

How to fix iPhone photos upside down in iPhoto

I took a bunch of photos with my iPhone held horizontally, which when imported into iPhoto are now upside down. Last time I did this, and I rotated the photos in iPhoto, the photos then appear upside down when viewing them on the iPhone. Is there any way to get the iPhone to agree with iPhoto on which way is up? Or do I have to create duplicate photos and rotate one so that at least one version is properly viewable on each device? (Also, does anyone have a good trick for remembering what the right position is for the camera eye when holding the iPhone sideways so I don't do this again?)

I hate iPhoto, except for the fact that it imports and organizes by date

After years and years of agony, we're quitting iPhoto for OS X. For now, we're using Lyn plus existing cloud backup rather than paying another monthly nut for Dropbox or the like. The only problem is, I like that when iPhoto imports photos, it organized them by year, month and day. I'd like to find a way to replace this functionality -- Apple script, existing software, whatever -- without actually importing them into iPhoto.

How can I automatically add photos to a shared Photo Stream?

The primary photo repository in our house is connected to my iCloud account. I'd like my wife to have dead-simple access to my Photo Stream so that she can easily check out pics on her iDevices (she has her own iCloud account) after we pull them off the camera. How can I do this?

IPhoto Confusion

Be easy on me I'm basically clueless about Macs, but my PC died and I'm forced to work off my wife's computer 1)Where is my wife's Mac storing our pics? When I point Adobe Bridge at our Iphoto Library folder it doesn't see any pics. Instead it opens Iphoto. (note our IPhoto Library is in a dropbox folder). If I want to open them in Photoshop I have to drag the pic from IPhoto. How do I make this not be like this? 2) Can I use Dropbox as a remote library for the pics? I.E. delete them from the drive and just point Bridge at dropbox? Or is there a better solution? Would be happy to pay but need something that requires at most the ability to fog a mirror.

How can I keep iphoto from cutting off the margins of photos when they print?

I have to print very detailed photos for my job. At times, the photos taken have information near the margin of the photo. When I import photos into iphoto and print them--whether or not I use preview--the margins are cut off. Is there a setting I can change to make sure that the entire photo is printed? This is driving me crazy. Thanks.

How can I sync iPhoto across two machines?

I have a MacBook and an iMac and would like to keep the same iPhoto library on both machines. I'm comfortable with making sure I only change the library on one machine at a time. I've done research and it seems the only way to keep the library on both machines is to use rsync, but despite following some online guides I can't get it to work. Does anyone know of a user-friendly link that will help?
