How do I move my iPhoto library from iMac G5 OSX 10.4 to iMac OSX 10.7?

How do I move my iPhoto library from iMac G5 OSX 10.4 to iMac OSX 10.7.2?

If you are doing an upgrade on the same Mac, just leave it where it is. When you do the upgrade, as long as it is not a "clean install" (wipe everything and start over), you should not lose any files.
If you are moving it to another Mac, move it to the same location in your user account on the other Mac. For example, no matter which Mac I'm on, the iPhoto library is always in Home/Pictures/iPhoto Library.

  • How can I move itunes/iphoto library from SSD to HD on my new imac?

    I have a lovely new imac with the SSD option. My old comps' boot disk was migrated to the SSD because it is the boot disk for the new computer. This is great and speedy but now I'd like to move my huge itunes and iphoto libraries from the SSD to the 2TB HD. I would rather not move the whole 'home' folder. I would appreciate if anyone could tell me how to do this.
    with thanks in advance, nedro

    Go to ~/Music/iTunes and drag & drop the iTunes Media folder to your HDD. It will not actually be moved, it will be copied. Depending on its size this can take a few minutes. When the copying is finished open iTunes and go to Preferences/Advanced. The first area is +iTunes Media folder location+. Click the Change button, browse to the location of your iTunes Media folder on the HDD and press Choose.
    Quit iTunes. Then drag only the iTunes Media folder from the SSD to the Trash and empty. When you restart iTunes it will be using the media folder from it new location.
    To move the iPhoto library, quit iPhoto. Got to ~/pictures and drag & drop the iPhoto Library to the HDD. It will be copied to the HDD. Drag the library on the SSD to the Trash and empty. Open iPhoto, follow the dialog in the window that appears to locate and choose your iPhoto Libray on the HDD.

  • How can I move my iPhoto Library from one Mac to another without losing the comments on the individual photos in the process?

    How can I move my iPhoto Library from one Mac to another without losing the comments on the individual photos in the process? The source Macbook (OS 10.4.11 and iPhoto 6.0.6 (3.2.2.)) is with my husband in Germany, the target MacBook Pro (OS 10.8.5, iPhoto 11) is with me in Japan. Thanks for your help.

    I copied the iPhoto Library to a CD and from there to the new MacBook
    If you copied the library to the CD via the Finder it would be no different than the methods Terence suggested.  If you used the Share ➙ Burn menu option from inside iDVD you'll get a mini library that has to be accessed from the open library and the events/alubums copied into the destination library.  Not the same as the other methods.
    The Share ➙ Burn method is no longer supported with iPhoto 9 and later.

  • How can I move my iPhoto Library from my MacBook Pro to my iMac or hard drive??

    How can I move my iPhoto Library from my MacBook Pro to my iMac or to my external hard drive? 'Help' is not helping!!

    To move to another machine:
    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.
    To move to an external disk:
    Make sure the drive is formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    1. Quit iPhoto
    2. Copy the iPhoto Library from your Pictures Folder to the External Disk.
    3. Hold down the option (or alt) key while launching iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library' and navigate to the new location. From that point on this will be the default location of your library.
    4. Test the library and when you're sure all is well, trash the one on your internal HD to free up space.

  • How do I get my iPhoto library from a ppc g5 to an intel iMac mid 2011

    How do I get my Iphoto library from a ppc g5 to an intel imac mid 2011?

    I recommend tha tyou do not use migration assistant - it has a poor record of moving the iPhoto library successfully
    Connect the two Macs together (network, firewire target mode, etc)  or use an external hard drive formed Mac OS extended (journaled) and drag the iPhoto library intact as a single entity from the old Mac to the pictures folder of the new Mac - launch iPhoto on the new mac and it will open the library and convert it as needed and you will be ready move forward.

  • How can I move an iPhoto library from from one Mac to another?

    How do I take a 30 GB iPhoto library from my home iMac (OSX 10.6.8) to work and combine the data with my my iPhoto Library on my work MacMini?

    Put the iPhoto library at work on an external hard drive, take it home and use the paid version of iPhoto Library Manager - http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ -  to merge it into your iPhoto library on the Mac Mini assuming they both are the same version

  • How can i move my iphoto library from my desktop

    Hi all
    I recently had a problem with iPhoto 11, when it stopped responding, and during the following weeks trying to get it going again I copied my iPhoto library to my desktop so as to try different things but not damage my photos, well in the end I had to remove iPhoto and then reinstall it from the disc, the only problem now is since I reinstalled it my library is showing on my desktop and I'm frightened it might get damaged there so how and where can I put it?
    Thanks

  • How can i move my Iphoto library to an external hard drive?

    How do I move my Iphoto library to an external hard drive?

    Here's a worflow for that:
    Make sure the drive is formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    1. Quit iPhoto
    2. Copy the iPhoto Library from your Pictures Folder to the External Disk.
    Now you have two full versions of the Library.
    3. On the Internal library, trash the Events you don't want there
    Now you have a full copy of the Library on the External and a smaller subset on the Internal
    Some Notes:
    As a general rule: when deleting photos do them in batches of about 100 at a time. iPhoto can baulk at trashing large numbers at one go.
    You can choose which Library to open: Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library'
    You can keep the Library on the external updated with new imports using  iPhoto Library Manager

  • How do you move your iphoto library to an external hard drive--step by step because I dont even know the basics--Help!

    I have no more space on my hard drive and my computer keeps freezing.  I would like to move my 10,000 photos from IPHOTO to an external hard drive but dont know how to do it.  I am reading answers to similiar questions but dont know how to do even the simplest instructions like "after you quit Iphoto how do you copy the iphoto library from our pictures folder to the external disk????"  Ugghhh I have no idea how to do this.  Please help a busy mom of three who sits here for an hour and just spins her wheels!!!

    Make sure the external drive is formatted Mac OS extended (journaled), quit iPhoto, drag the iPhoto library to the external drive, depress the option key, launch iPhoto and use the select library command to select the iPhoto library on the external drive
    Fully test the library. Once you are sure it is totally ok delete the old library - test one more time prior to emptying the trash
    Check and make sure that your backup system is backing up yor external drive

  • How do I restore an iPhoto library from Time Capsule

    My iMac was stolen. I have a MacBook Air running Yosemite version 10.10.2. The iPhoto Library was not on the MacBook. How do I restore my iPhoto Library from a Time Machine backup on my Time Capsule onto my MacBook? I am using iPhoto version 9.6.1.
    Two complications:
    1. I have several hundred photos from a different iPhoto library on my MacBook.
    2. I think the iPhoto library that is hopefully on my Time Capsule is too big to fit on my MacBook. I have 50 GB free space remaining on a 256 GB SSD.
    Thank you.

    If the library to be restored is too big for your boot drive you'll need to get an external HD, formatted OS X Extended (journaled) with ownership set to be ignored, and restore the iPhoto Library to it according to the instructions in the following screenshot:
    With the restored library up and running you can use the paid version of  iPhoto Library Manager to merge the Macbook library into the restored library on the EHD.  A possible candidate for the EHD is the  OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro USB 3.0 / FireWire 800.  It lends itself nicely for portable use.
    Once you are satisfied that the merge was successful you can delete the Macbook library from the Pictures folder.

    how do i import an iPhoto library from a time machine backup? I did a back up and i formatted my machine. How do i get iphoto to be the same?

    This screenshot shows how to restore a library from Time Machine.
    There is NO importing necessary.  One should never import one library into another.  Just restore it to your Pictures folder and launch iPhoto.
