mac osx 10.3.9
i found the pohotos while clicking around - i would like to create folders for the pics because iphoto has the dates - but i can't drag and drop them and i can't export them - do i need to copy all of the extra data like thumbnails? how can i create new folders and save the pics? is there a workaround for being able to use my external hard drive which of course is larger even though this computer cannot recognize the disk?
yes - the photos are appearing as expected - i launched it from some place other than the iphoto icon - I have tried to rename this iphoto library so it won't get mixed up with other iphoto libraries on my external hard drive
Nothing happened to the external hard drive as far as I know - I just presumed that since this is an older computer that because of its 'age' it could not read the external disk -
yes - originally used with a newer mac - what is the best strategy in your opinion for backing up these pics from this older computer?
I would like to back them up to my external hard drive - are you suggesting that I somehow transfer the photos to a newer computer and back them up from there?
it was the biggest one at radio shack - 32 something - do i need all of the extra data that comes along with copying the library - or can i make things smaller by creating new individual folders with pics in them and a date/description and then transferring those folders to the thumb drive a few at a time and then load them via the same thumb drive to a newer mac?
ok - iphoto library 6 - which is what I renamed the library as - is 13.16 gb - i also have a folder there called iphoto library and it is 170.9 mb, and i also have pictures on something named palmOne photos which is 16.7 mb - what is the difference between iphoto library 6 and the iphoto library -
