i use the application iphoto buddy to keep my photo library on a external hd so my internal hd has more space, and the widget is not working

Excellent. Works like a charm for me. Would like to see it launch iPhoto and load a picture if I click on it...

Excellent upgrade. Great additions. Thanks. Can I request that double clicking on an image leaves the Dashboard and autoloads into Preview? Keep up the great work.

I don't know what this widget is doing in the background, but from the moment I installed it my CPU usage went up to 100%, of which 80 -85% is atributed to iPhoto Mini. I could hear the MacMini fan speed up, which happens very rarely otherwise. I left it for a while in case it was just building an index of my fairly large photo collection, but after an hour it is still running the CPU at 100%. Sorry, nice appearance and all, but I can't give my processor over to running one decorative widegt.

What Denis said, it seemed my system was taking a speed hit so I opened Activity Monitor and this widget while running was sucking up 80% of my processor. And that was while it was inactive. I thought Dashboard widgets were not supposed to use CPU while in the background unless updating info from the net or something similar.

AS far as the crazy processor usage goes... it's only happened once to me. I just reloaded the widget (click on widget, press command-R) and from then on it has seemed to work great. Hopefully the author will fix this bug in the future, but at least it hasn't reoccurred!

I have heavy CPU-usage as well. Up to 60%. A pity because this widget is great. Any bugfix?

The new version seems to fix the processor usage bug. And it's resizable. Cool.

As a blogger, I've struggled to find ways to use versions of photos from my iPhoto library without creating duplicates first. This widget, used in conjunction with the (amazing) ImageWell app, is the fastest and easiest solution a gal could want.

One feature request: a drawer or popup with the current image's information (size, date, etc).
