This little application is incredible.

I have been using iPhoto Buddy for as long as I can remember to manage my iPhoto libraries (over 6,500 photos) because iPhoto 5 would simply crawl whenever it contained over 1,000 photos.

Now I find that my Casio Exilim EX-S2 digital camera is the culprit behind the slow loading speeds! (still, fabulous camera though) :)

Once I exported my (five) iPhoto libraries, ran iPhoto Exif Cleaner on the photos and then re-imported them into an empty iPhoto library, the speed increase was absolutely amazing!

My iPhoto library is now loading in a few seconds, where before it would take several minutes. I think now I can finally uninstall iPhoto Buddy and use a single iPhoto library for all my photos!

And as if this weren't enough, iPhoto Exif Cleaner can automatically clean your photos as they are imported from your digital camera onto your computer! What more could you ask for? For FREE?

To see if your digital camera is behind the slowness of your iPhoto library, check out the developer's homepage, as well as Eric Lindsay's page, which goes into some detail on how and why this slowness in iPhoto 5 occurs.

The developer has done a great job on this application, and while I do not have any complaints, I do have a couple of feature requests that may or may not be really easy to do:

(1) For existing libraries, it would be easier if you could simply pick a folder you wanted to clean, rather than having to name it 'DCIM' and put it in the same folder as iPhoto Exif Cleaner

(2) Display real progress as you clean the photos, even if it is only the filename of the current photo, similar to the output of the read-only version

Thanks again for the great app!
