I'm sure other problems and solutions will become known after I finish writing. Along with iPhoto's online help (choose iPhoto Help from the Help menu), a variety of Internet resources provide assistance.
Places to look for more help:
Check Apple's iPhoto support pages at www.apple.com/support/iphoto/ (Figure 9.3) and www.apple.com/support/iphoto/customerservice/.
Figure 9.3. Start with Apple's iPhoto support pages for general help and pointers to other resources.
Search in Apple's Knowledge Base using the Search field on the pages listed above. Narrow your search by adding terms, so if you're having trouble importing RAW files, search for "import RAW" or something similar.
Try asking a question on Apple's iPhoto Web-based discussion forums linked at http://discussions.info.apple.com/ (Figure 9.4). In my experience, these discussions are good for straightforward questions; harder questions tend to go unanswered. When posting, state your problem clearly and include relevant information while at the same time keeping the question concise.
