Rebuilding the iPhoto library

More of a note to self seeing as my iPhoto library is already close to 60GB and just keeps growing, if you ever get any glitches with your iPhoto library due to database corruption, thumbnails going wonky or what not; start iPhoto while keeping the Command & Option keys pressed launches the screen shown above with plenty of repair and recovery options.
A further explanation of all the options can be found here.

Mac photo apps

Here’s a question for the Mac users out there.
I’m taking an average of about 4-500 photos a week and now I’m leaving the last remainder of Windows behind and switching over to the Mac for my last computer I’m on the lookout for a good way to organize my photos and for any good applications to edit them. So iPhoto, Aperture, Gimp, Photoshop, what do you use?

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
