How do you move a quicktime movie from one iphoto library to another?

How do you move a quicktime movie from one iphoto library to another?

1 - export it from Library A via the File ➙ Export ➙ File Export menu with Kind = Original.
2 - import it into Library B as you normally would.

    Generally it is not advised to have multiple Photo libraries - but if you do you need IPLM to manage them

  • Moving events from one iPhoto library to another

    I want to move some events from one iPhoto library to another.  Does anyone know that this is possible and if so, how do I do it?

    iPhoto cannot do it . The full version of iPhoto Library Manager can transfer events between libraries, or Aperture can do this.
    You can download iPhoto Library Manager here:  iPhoto Library Manager
    If you want to save the money for additional tools, doit manually: 
    Export the photos from each event you want to transfer to a folder.
    Import the folders with images to your other iPhoto library.
    You have to make up your mind, if you want to move the original files to your other library or the edited versions.  Only exporting the original files instead of the edited files will preserve the full quality. Actually, you want to export both. Using iPhoto library Manager will ensure, that both will be transferred and paired as one photo.

  • Moving photos from one iPhoto library to another

    Is there a way to move photos from one iPhoto library to another? I tried to use export, and that puts the photos in the other iPhoto library (I can see the photo if I open Hard drive>user>pictures>iPhoto Library but when I open iPhoto it is not in that Library's library.
    If I have not made myself clear, please ask and I'll try again.

    Is there really no other way than via third party software??
    Yes there is, detailed above: export from one, import to another.
    I love using iPhoto but this is a real drawback.
    Wow, really?
    I have bought an external disk so i can free the space on my laptop by moving photos and now I have to buy some software in order to do that??
    You don't have to buy it. What's more the free version of iPhoto Library Manager will move up to 20 pics at a time. And the paid version is only $20.
    BTW: you can run an entire library from the external disk:
    1. Quit iPhoto
    2. Copy the iPhoto Library Folder as an entity 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.

  • Importing from one iphoto library to another--how to?

    I want to go into a large iphoto library and break it up into several smaller ones.
    I currently have two iphoto libraries which, it turns out, are much bigger than the optimal size. One is 25 gigs and the other 71 gigs.
    I was told that 5000 pictures should be the max, and the SMALLER of the two has about 6000 pictures and movies. It works fine.
    The 71 gig library, however, has had some problems, and run slowly. I want to break it up into several smaller libraries.
    I know how to create a new library. And how to close one and open another. But how do you move images from one libary to another?
    thanks
    t

    You can split the library by duplicating it and then delete those photos from the second copy that you don't want in it. If you want to move photos between libraries and keep the keyword, titles, comments, albums and event intact then use iPhoto LIbrary Manager that Niel suggested.

    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.

  • HT2688 How can I "click and drag" songs from one shared library to another?

    I have home sharing activated on my mom's computer and mine and before the newest version of itunes, we were able to click and drag songs from one users' library into the other. We are not able to do that now and I wanted to know if there was a way to do this in the newest version of itunes.

    I am using a Windows computer first off, not sure if that makes a difference,  When you say "click import" where is import.  I can not find anything that says "import" to click.

  • Transferring from one iPhoto library to another

    How do I import photos from an older iPhoto library to a new one, without creating duplicates?
    If I import the old iPhoto library folder, I end up with duplicates (both the modified photos and the originals). If I import just the folder for modified photos, then I can't "revert to original."

    nvanderkolk:
    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Does the new library have photos in it or is it new? If new and empty, move it to the trash and copy the old library folder into the Pictures folder. Download and run BatChmod on the iPhoto Library folder with the settings shown here, putting your administrator login name, long or short, in the owner and group sections. You can either type in the path to the folder or just drag the folder into that field. Then launch iPhoto and let it convert the old library to the new version complete with keywords, comments, albums, etc.
    If the new library has photos in it and you want to keep the keywords, comments, etc. from the old library intact then try the following:
    1 - rename the old library and put it in the Pictures folder along with the new library.
    2 - run BatChmod on the old library folder as described above.
    3 - launch iPhoto with the Option key depressed and, when asked, opt to select a library and select the old one. Let iPhoto convert it.
    4 - download and use the paid version of iPhoto Library Manager to merge the two libraries. This will keep all your metadata intact.
    If you don't need the keywords, etc. of the old library then all you need to do is drag the Originals folder from the old library folder into the open window of the new library. That will import the originals into events (if you have the Events preferences set like this) that correspond to the rolls you had in the old library.

  • Importing from one Iphoto Library to another

    Hi,
    Just wondering if you can help.
    I have two Iphoto libraries and would like to consolidate them into one.
    However, I want to import them in their current albums rather than as individual files as there is 31,000 of them and it will take forever to put them back into albums.
    Is there anyway to do this?
    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Like this with iPLM as Larry suggested.

  • How can I move selected photos from one iPhoto Library to another?

    When I set up a new iPhoto Library and copied photos into it, only the thumbnails transferred.  I want to combine the two libraries now and have the master photos in the combined library.  How do I do that in iPhoto 11 and how do I then remove duplicates?

    The only way to merge libraries is with the paid ($20) version of iPhoto Library Manager

  • Can I move "keepsakes" from one iPhoto library to another?

    For one reason or another a specific "keepsake" photobook was created in an iPhoto library that only contained a subset of all my photos. Now I would like to integrate this specific photobook into the iPhoto library that contains ALL my photos, such that all keepsakes are together.
    Is there a way, even a work-around or a round-about way that this specific keepsake photobook can be moved into the overall library?
    Thanks for any pointers/suggestions/advice.
    Cheers,
    Veit

    No, there is no way to move a keepsake from one Library to another.

  • How do I add photos from one iphoto library to another library

    I own 2 macs and want to take the photos from one library and add them to a different library on a different Mac.  How do I do it?  I've copied the iphoto library from computer 1 to computer 2 but haven't yet done anything with the file.

    Best solution is to use the paid version of iPhoto Library Manager to move photos between libraries
    You can move one version of the image with selected metadata by exporting from one library and importing it to the other library - Exporting From iPhoto

  • How can I export a project (a book) from one iPhoto library to another?

    I have a photo book in an iPhoto library that was on a laptop.  I'd like to export it from that library and import it into my iPhoto library on my iMac.  Is there any way to do that?  Thanks!

    No
    Books do not exist. They are just database entries. So you must move the entire database (the iPhoto library by default) to move a book. You can make a smaller database by duplicating the current one and deleting everything except the book and it's photos. You can make and save a PDF of a book

  • How do I transfer events from one iphoto library to another?

    I have  2 iphoto libraries.  How do I transfer some events from one to the other?

    Either:
    1. Export from Library A to the Finder and then import to Library B - this means you won't get the edit history of the images nor will you get all the metadata
    or
    2. Use iPhoto Library Manager for the job, which will get all versions and all metadata
    or
    3. If you have Aperture, use that.

  • How to transfer images from one iPhoto library to another.

    Hi.  I run my main iPhoto library on an EHD but I also have an iPhoto library on my MBP.  I want to consolidate the two librarys and get rid of all the iamges on the MBP and just have them all on my EHD.  My question is, what is the easiest way to transfer all the contents form my library on my MBP to my library on my EHD and will it copy across all my edited versions? 
    Many thanks in anticipation.....

    To merge two iPhoto libraries and to perserve all your edits, use the paid version of
    iPhoto Library Manager
    Or, if you have access to an Aperture installation, and your iPhoto version is iPhoto 9.3 or later, you can merge iPhoto Libraries in Aperture. Aperture 3.3: How to use Aperture to merge iPhoto libraries
    All other methods (exporting from one library and reimporting into the other) will not copy over your books, albums, etc.
