How to move photo's between libraries?

I have been moving photos from one library to another by dragging them to the desktop from a library and then using the Import command to place them in the new library. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere as a way to move photo's between libraries. I didn't use the Export command simply because it was easier not to. The new library works ok, but did I lose something by using this method? When I use my method, I am only copying the edited version but not the "original" photo that may be in the library. Therefore, I don't have the original in the new library if I need it. This is ok since I no longer need the original. Do I understand this correctly. I would appreciate any explanation about this so.
I am using iPhoto '08 version 7.1.5.

Yes, if you drag from the iPhoto Window to the desktop you’re getting the current (edited) version of the pic. You’re also missing any added metadata, such as keywords etc.
Yes, when you import to the other library you are missing the original file too.
The only way to move pics/albums/Events (including metadata) between Libraries (and all versions) is with iPhoto Library Manager.

    In Lightroom mobile how can move photos within the collection????

    What you can do is to move (or copy) a photo form one collection to another. This can be triggered via the top right app menu item from grid view. Same menu is available when you open up an image for editing. Hope that helps. -Guido

    In addition to wanting to know how to move photos around on ipad , i also want to know how to delete photos

    Photos that were synced from your computer can't be deleted directly on the iPad - they are deleted by moving them from where they were synced from on your computer and then re-syncing, and they should then be removed from the iPad.
    You also can't alter the order of photos in the Photos app, the sorting needs to be done on your computer prior to syncing :

  • How to move photos from photo stream to albums on iPad

    How do I move photos between stream and album or any other place

    You could do it by setting up a Shared Photo Stream. Select the photos in the Photo app then tap the Shared button selecting Photo Stream. Just don't enter any email address and it will appear on your other devices. Only photos can be added and not albums so you will have to re-organize then on the iPhone.
    I would recommend getting the photos to the computer as well though. Create a photo library on the computer and sync then over to the iphone with iTunes. The photo library on the computer can be added to a more reliable backup.

  • Help me understand how to move pdf's between iPad and MacBook.

    I use the iPad 2 as a electronic reader of research articles.  When reviewing this material I desire to keep the annotations I make to the pdf via the PDFReader app.  I review enough material that I need the MacBook as a storage space.  But I haven't been able to figure out how to move pdf's that I've made annotations to, to the MacBook while maintaining the annontations I've made.  These annotations are maintained while the file is stored on the iPad. 
    It seems as though for files not generated by Numbers, Keynote, or Pages the iCloud sharing of files between devices is a bit of a gimmick.  I'm using Mountain Lion and iOS 5.1.1.  Suggestions???

  • How to move photos from one library to another?

    I currently have 2 libraries and I want to move photos from one library into the other.
    How do I have to proceed?

    We're thinking of adding a library copy feature soon.  Hoping you can share some info here to help us understand how this might best work fo you.   Here's a few questions I have:
    - What do you use the 2 libraries for?
      - Why do you want to copy?
      - Do you have albums, favorites, and comments associated with the photos?  Do you want them copied?
    Anything else that you are hoping to accomplish here?
    Thanks in advance,

  • Photoshop elements 8 for Mac - how to move photos (events) from iphoto to pse

    I have figured out how to move one  photo over through opening a file.  But I can't move a full event or album from iphoto.  Ive tried going to bridge but when i click on the iphoto folder, it takes me into my iphoto and I'm not sure what do then, no buttons or anything that seems to connect to PSE.  Any help would be appreciated!  I wish Adobe supported this product better for Mac users.  Maybe they read these discussions?

    Are you opening iPhoto files from within Photoshop Elements? You can open all the files in an iPhoto event into PSE8 through a single click.
    In Photoshop Elements, go to File menu > Open. In the browser window that appears, click Photos under Media in the sidebar. Now, you should be able to see iPhoto with all its events. When you click on an event and "Open" it, you should get all the photos of that event in the project bin.
    Is this the problem being asked?

  • How to move photos from laptop to ipad?

    How can I move photo files from by laptop to my ipad?

    Another way. You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.
    Plug the USB flash drive into your computer & create a new folder titled DCIM. Then put your movie/photo files into the folder. The files must have a filename with exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension (i.e.,; DSCN0164.jpg).
    Now plug the flash drive into the iPad using the camera connection kit. Open the Photos app, the movie/photo files should appear & you can import. (You can not export using the camera connection kit.)

  • How to move photos in Dreamweaver MX?

    I have an index page (you can see my web page at
    where in my local view, I can't move the 2 portrait photos at the
    top, nor can I really enlarge them, otherwise the one drops to
    another row below it, as though they won't fit side by side. Yet
    the picture under those two, of a bride, is much wider than the 2
    small portraits. Why can't I make the 2 top portrait pictures wide
    enough to match the width of the photo below?

    Step back from the keyboard and take a deep breath.
    Clear your mind of everything you know about word processors,
    applications and image editors.
    Now, find a good book on html and css and get a good
    understanding of the
    You can not drag and drop text, images or other content in
    html documents.
    Dreamweaver has some of this functionality in the design
    view, but
    basically, you must describe your layout in html. The code
    tells the
    browsers where to place text and images, how to style them,
    how they will
    relate to each other.
    to get started, try tables for positioning images and text.
    Tabs and spaces
    don't work. Then check out some tutorials on div positioning
    and css to
    style your page.
    Lurk about on this forum a lot and read the many posts on
    these issues.
    It's a steep learning curve, but the most important thing is
    not to confuse
    Dreamweaver or html markup with Word, or Publisher. They are
    not at all
    And PLEASE... do not fall into the trap of letting one of
    those programs
    create html code for you. They will simply make a huge mess
    of it.
    (reference many posts here on that subject.)
    Good luck

  • How to move photos in Events?

    Once a group of photos are placed in an album, I note that a new Event is created. When I open the Event, I cannot move the photos. For example, if I want to move the last photos in the series to be the 1st photo, nothing happens. However, if I go into the photo library, moving is no problem, but it does not change the position of the photo in the Event.
    Is there a way to move photos in the Event? The help section does not address this.

    The only way to sort photos manually is to either be in an Album or in the Photos mode with the option to view Event Titles not selected.
    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), 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. 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.

  • HT4236 How to move photos from iphone to imac?

    Not from the camera roll. I have 6000 photos from my old iphone3g that aren't on my current computer, and would like to know how to move them without e-mailling each one to myself. There must be an easy solution, does anyone know what that is?

    The sync is one way - computer to iphone.  the iphone is not a backup/storage device.  it simply mirror the selected content of your computer.
    Since the pics came from your computer in the first place, then they should still be there.  Certainly you maintained a backup copy of your pics.
    If for some reason you have failed to maintain a abckup ( not good), then you can e-mail the pics to yourself.  They will never be of the original qaulity as pics are reduced in size/quality when syncing to iphone.  You may be abl;e to find 3rd party software as well.  Again, then pics will not be of the original quality.

  • How do I share music between libraries?

    I looked this up and all I could find was how to move the music from one folder to another in the same computer. It never finished to tell me how to actually share a few songs from one library to another (I read it over and over thinking I was missing something).
    By sheer luck (and following instructions I can no longer find), I was able to export a few songs from Library 1 (my Ipod) to Library 2 (my daughter's Ipod) about 3 months ago. Now when I try it sends my whole library into my daughter's Itunes library (viewing it on Itunes), instead of just a few she'd like. On top of that, Itunes will create multiple folders in the left side bar (many are duplicates).
    What do I need to change? I just want to share a song with her once in a while without a huge hassle and searching for help each time.

    This article has the directions:
    The important steps for you are these
    +To listen to another account's music files+
    +Open iTunes.+
    +From the iTunes menu, choose Preferences.+
    +Click Advanced.+
    +Deselect the "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library file" option.+
    +Click OK.+
    +From the File menu, choose Add File to Library.+
    +Note: Windows users can also choose Add Folder to Library to add a folder of songs.+
    +Navigate in the Add File To Library window to the location where the other user's music is saved (the iTunes Music folder in the case above).+
    +Click Open.+
    +Repeat these steps for each account that is listening to shared music.+
    +When another user of the computer has imported new music from CD, repeat steps 6 through 8 to add the music to your library.+

  • I would like to know how to move photos from camera roll to other albums. I don't want to leave all my photos in camera roll. I wan't to do this using a PC.

    I recently bought a new iPad and have questions about photos. I would like to move photos out of camera roll into other albums. I don't just want to copy them into other folders. I will be using a PC not a Mac.
    I can view the photos in camera roll on my PC but can only back them up or delete them. I cannot see the other folders.

    In terms of windows explorer/camera wizard you won't see synced folders/albums that are on the iPad. You can only add photos to albums/folders that you synced from your computer by adding the photos to the folders on your computer and then re-syncing - on the iPad you can only add/copy photos to albums that you've created directly on the iPad.
    So you will need to copy the photos to your computer : Then organise them on your computer into folders and then re-sync them.
