I have all my scrapping supplies stored on an EHD, with only photos in iPhoto. It's a system that works for me.
Thanks! Do you have them sorted in individual folders or do you have them just all in one large document?

Each year, I create a new library for that year's photos, and move the past year to an EHD. And although I have Time Machine, I back up my current photo library every month or so. The libraries for products and wish lists remain on the hard drive. The products themselves are stored on the EHD in folders, and backed up to DVD when I've accumulated enough to fill a disc; I keep a folder on the desk top to collect the new products. Only the marketing images, and perhaps a sample LO or two, are in the product library. I don't bother to back up the wish list, as its loss would not be catastrophic.
I keep the library for favorite LOs on the EHD.
I've found that the O'Reilly series of "missing manual" books is invaluable for clarifying how to use varying aspects of iPhoto, and other electronic devices, as I prefer to have a book open beside me as I struggle through new programs, rather than flitting back and forth between the program and the help menus (which often aren't too helpful.)
Hope this helps! If you have questions, send me a message.
