Copying iPhoto slideshows from G5 to MacBook

I have created some cool slideshows in my G5 and want to copy those slideshows on to my MacBook so that I can show them to family when I travel. I have never been able to figure out how to do this.
"Exporting" the slideshow only creates a Quick Time Movie. While the movies work fine, they do not fill the screen and are low res (even when I choose "large size"). I want to show the slideshow from within iPhoto (it's better quality than a Q T Movie).
Can anyone help me with this?
Thank you

If you don't want to copy the library to the laptop and can live with QT movie files that can be sized to any pixel dimension you want, give PhotoPresenter a try. It has a demo version so you can evaluate it. You'd have to recreate the current slideshows but it also have over 25 animated themes which you can use. This demo page has several examples.
The resulting QT movie files would be easy to carry with you and could be burned to CDs if you wanted to leave them with the family members.
TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
Note: There's now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

    i tried transferring my iphoto library from my old macbook onto my new macbook pro (via external hard drive), but when i open the new iphoto, it seems to have transferred ALL images ever used on my old macbook. so i tried to just delete all those images so i could try a different approach to transferring, but the new iphoto won't let me do anything and every time i try to delete anything it crashes (since the image amount is so high).  please help!!
    MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iphoto '11, version 9.4.2

    To move an iPhoto Library to a new machine:
    Link the two Macs together: there are several ways to do this: Wireless Network,Firewire Target Disk Mode, Ethernet, or even just copy the Library to an external HD and then on to the new machine...
    But however you do choose to link the two machines...
    Simply copy the iPhoto Library from the Pictures Folder on the old Machine to the Pictures Folder on the new Machine.
    Then launch iPhoto. That's it.
    This moves photos, events, albums, books, keywords, slideshows and everything else.

  • How do I export an iPhoto slideshow from my iMac to my iBook?

    How do I export an iPhoto slideshow from my iMac to my iBook?

    For the slideshow in the form of an Quicktime movie just export the slideshow via the export button at the bottom of the iPhoto window
    and select the size to be created
    If you want to have the slideshow in your iBook's iPhoto Library as it is in your iMac's library you'll need to copy the entire library from your iMac to your iBook. 
    A 3rd option is to export the photos used in the slideshow to a folder on the Desktop, copy that folder to the iBook, import into the iBooks library and recreate the slideshow.

    See - I doubt that it will solve your problem, though. You may want to post on the iPhoto forum - that's where all of the iPhoto experts hang out.
    Good luck,

    How can I transfer my iPhoto Slideshow from my mac desktop to my mac laptop.  When I try to transfer I get error message OSStatus 61.

    It might be better to share the slideshow to a video and transfer that to the laptop.

  • How can I migrate iPhoto library from an old MacBook Pro to a new one?

    When the hard drive on my MacBook Pro 13 needed to be wiped clean, I restored all my files from Time Machine except for my iPhoto files. Not sure why my iPhoto library wasn't restored, but it wasn't, and I can't find it on my Time Capsule. I want to move my partial iPhoto library from my old MacBook Pro to my new one. I understand this is possible by linking them in some way. What is that way?

    There are three ways; using File Sharing over a network, transferring them via an external drive, or using FireWire Target Disk mode. If you use file sharing, use the AFP protocol. If you use an external drive, it or a partition or disk image on it needs to be formatted as Mac OS Extended.

  • How to copy iPhoto Events from MacBook to iMac

    I have a problem. I own a MacBook and I have iPhoto'08 on it. I also own an iMac and I have iPhoto'09 on it. I use my iMac for ALMOST all my pictures, down loading them from my camera SD card directly into iPhoto'09. The exception to the rule is when I go on holiday and then I use my Macbook. Well I recently returned from a 3 week vacation in Africa with over 2100 new photos contained in 28 new events. I want to copy them into iPhoto'09 on my iMac. I would think this would be an easy "Apple to Apple" thing to do, but after researching it, I am now more confused than ever. Can anyone help me to accomplish this task without loosing metadata, corrupting my files, or re-importing all the pictures one by one?

    Thanks Larry, I will try the IPLM if all else fails. Is it a "plugin" type program or is it stand alone software?
    It is a stand alone program - iPhoto Library Manager - -
    What I did do in the mean time was to copy the iPhoto library from the MacBook to my iMac, in a different folder. This is a temporary step, as I want to be able to have access to all my photos for searches at the same time. Do you know if the library name can be changed to something more descriptive or must it be called iPhoto Library for it to work?
    The iPhoto library can have any name - switch between them by depressing the option key and launching iPhoto and using the select library option - or using IPLM which can switch libraries on the fly

  • How to copy iPhoto library to my new Macbook?

    I did a search and found some related topics that helped, but I wanted to make sure I got some more detail on this, as it seems to be a bit more complicated than I thought:
    I recently purchased a MacBook Pro, and need to copy my iPhoto library from our iMac to the Pro. So, here's what I did, which apparently is not correct:
    I have a backup of the iPhoto library on an external hard drive, where I simply copy the iPhoto Library folder periodically.
    So, I simply connected my MacBook to that external, and selected the folders I wanted to import, and clicked on "Import to Library."
    I believe what I ended up with is essentially all the thumbnails on the new library - all the images are there, but at a low resolution, and I don't seem to have the actual picture files anywhere.
    From my research here, it sounds like I need to actually copy the iPhoto library from the iMac (or external hard drive) onto my MacBook, and then open them up with iPhoto.
    First, is that correct?
    And second, how do I delete the thumbnails that are already on my library, since I don't actually see any files? Under iPhoto library in my Finder, there is simply an iPhoto Library "icon."
    Thanks for any help,

    Connect the External Hard Drive to your new computer, quit iPhoto, drag the iPhoto library from the pictures folder to the trash (empty it later after you are all done), drag the entire iPhoto library as a single entity from the EHD to the pictures folder on your new MacBook and launch iPhoto - it will find the iPhoto library you just put in the pictures folder, convert it if needed and you will have on the MB exactly what you had before on the iMac

  • Import iPhoto events from iMac to MacBook Pro.

    I have an iMac and MacbookPro. My iMac is the "mothership" of the two.  When I download photos or music, I always download it to my iMac.  In the past, I was able to transfer events from iPhoto on my Mac to my MacBook Pro.  For some reason, I can't do it.  In iphoto, the left hand colum, there was a way to transfer photos, but I can't.  How can I import iPhoto events from my iMac to my Macbookpro?

    If you always import to the iMac then the simple way is to back up the Library on the iMac to the MBP.
    Use an app that will do incremental back ups. This is a very good way to work. The first time you run the back up the app will make a complete copy of the Library. Thereafter it will update the back up with the changes you have made. That makes subsequent back ups much faster. Many of these apps also have scheduling capabilities: So set it up and it will do the back up automatically.
    Example of such apps: Chronosync - but there are many others. Search on MacUpdate or the App Store

  • I copied iPhoto library from old Mac to NAS. I cannot access the library from my new Mac

    I've a nice new MacBook Pro (OS X 10.9.5) with iPhoto version 9.5.1. I decided to move my iPhoto library from my old MBP (running iPhoto 7.1.5) to a Synology NAS and expected I'd be able to open it from the new Mac.
    I can see the library on the NAS from the new MAC. Unfortunately when I select it using option key on iPhoto launch or trying to open directly from the library in Finder, I end up with iPhoto open and showing "No photos". I've tried using iPhoto Library Manager and this can't select the library either.
    I can open the library on the NAS from my old Mac OK.
    Does anyone have an idea what I'm missing here?

    iPhoto Libraries cannot be located on a NAS driver. Read this Apple document, iPhoto: Issues with FAT32-formatted drives - Apple Support, and note the last sentence of the first paragraph.
    They must be located on a drive formatted OS X Extended (journaled) with ownership set to be ignored (if an external HD).  A NAS is a headless computer with a file system and file access requirements that are not compatible with iPhoto's Library structure.

  • I have copied Iphoto library from other MAC using the migration assistant, when starting Iphoto the rebuild however stops half way (no progress after 24 hours)

    Using the migration assistant I copied my users from an old MAC (2007) to a brand new on. After a few attempts and software updates this worked. For Itunes and mail for example all data was available. On starting my Iphoto however there was a problem. When starting there is the message that the library, to be able to work with the new Iphoto Version, needs to be updated. In the process of doing this the programm seems to get stuck after 40 % of progress and even after 24 hours does not continue. I have tried to use the I-Photo First aid, but before starting any of the steps it wants to re-allign the old library to the new Iphoto version ans subsequently get's stuck on the same spot again !! Is there any advice you could give ?

    I have tha same problem.
    iPhoto asks for updating, then it shows a bar about the conversion in progress, then it shows that it is working on faces library and then the circle spot stop to turn on faces library and starts in the middles of iPhoto window.
    After three days nothing changed!
    Any help?

  • Copy a folder from imac to macbook says: no permissions to do that. But I am locked in as admin

    Just wanna copy newer files from my iMac’s homefolder (Yosemite) to my Macbook’s homefolder (Snow Leo).
    Both homefolders have the same name and the Computers have same admin-password.
    To not do it file by file I deleted the old folder "work" on my notebook and tried to copy it as one piece from my iMac to the notebook.
    The folder was build, but no content would be copied.
    There is a message: Failed due to permissions…
    How can I copy it completely?

    Now I am locked in on both machines to the other machine
    with System-Preferences : "Releases" : "set Data free" (don’t know in english…).
    I can copy a folder from iMac to Notebook from within the Notebook,
    but not by draggin it to a Notebook-Window from within the iMac … !
    Don’t know why, but it works this way and my Question is not needed to be answered anymore.
