• Once you've dropped the folder, that's it--feel free to rename the alias ("iPhoto Import folder" or whichever name you prefer), but you don't have to do that.
Now, whenever you want to import any of the affected,photos you have, just drop those photos into that into that new alias folder you've just created.
If iPhoto is open and active, it will import those dropped files immediately. If it's not running, the photos will be automatically imported the next time you launch the application.
If you get a lot of photos via e-mail or from the web, this is one of the easiest ways of importing them to iPhoto.
So give this a try and let me know if this workaround process is the fix you need at least to begin importing your photos into iPhoto for your user account.
I will be hoping for a good update from you with this procedure.
Thanks so much for being patient with me as I have worked to assist you.
