Yes, I am trying to move the entire library. I initially only created a new library on the external hardrive but since I have "events" in the old one that I want to include photos from all of my photos I thought I should move the entire thing. If you have a better idea than that, I would be open to that too.
Otherwise, I have already created a place on the hardrive that I downloaded my new pictures to, but I want to move the entire thing over.....
I followed the directions I found online but they all say "find iphoto in Pictures" and I don't find mine there. I find it under "applications" of course but when I move my "iphoto library" that I find there, it seems to be blank.
My internet is off and on due to problems in my area so it is hard for me to reply. I'm not sure you are getting my issue. When I hold down "option" and iphoto I see several iphoto library choices. Some of them have nothing in them (except my mobileme galleries) one of them (which seems to be the shared one, has the pictures from my iphoto library that is on my computer, another one is my new iphoto library on the external hardrive.
A. What should I do with the "libraries" that contain nothing?
B. How can I find the real library (the one that is coming from the shared user) somewhere that I can move it?
Also, when I click iphoto library in spotlight, the only one that comes up that actually has pictures in it is entitled "recovered photos"
Any help with this?
