How to move/share photos between libraries?

I recently learned how to create a new iphoto library (in addition to my default library) so I can organize my photos into distinct groups. I would like to move some photos from the original library to the new one. How do I do this?
Thank you!
CJ

You can move the photo by exporting it from one library, switching to the second library and importing it- this will not keep faces or all metadata - the best solution to managing multiple libraries is iPhoto Library Manager - http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ -  If you want or need multiple libraries it is a great $20 investment

  • How can I share photos between my iphone and ipad?

    I want to automatically share photos between my iPhone and iPad.  I use iCloud and I setup Photo Stream but my photos are not moving from one device to the other. My goal is to have all my photos on both devices- automatically. How can I accomplish this?
    Thank you!

    Photos will Not go between iPad & iPhone..they have to go thro' iCloud as a provider or sync via your computer individually...you need Wireless on both or a direct USB connection..
    On each iPad and iPhone you can initialize via the Summary/Photos when they are connected via iTunes..

  • HT4007 how can i share photos between users on the same mac?

    Dear All,
    My wife and I use the same MacbookPro, but our own different login Accounts on the Mac, how can we share photos bewtwen these 2 accounts.
    Say, I've downloaded some pics from my camera and would like to transfer to her login account.
    Can I do it on the desktop level or can I use iPhoto to do this? I'd like to know how to do bothways, without having to duplicate the files(ie saving 2 copies of the same file on the computer)
    Isn' there a 'New' feature on iPhoto / Aperture saying that it uses the same 'Unified' library or something ?
    Can this feature help? but how to activate?
    Pls help.
    Thanks

    Macs have a folder called "Public" for this purpose.  See this from Finder's help:
    Share files with others using a drop box
    To give a copy of a file to another user, you can copy the file to the person’s Drop Box.
    HidePut a file in the Drop Box of another user on your Mac
    Open the user’s Public folder (in their home folder in the Users folder on your hard disk).
    Hold down the Option key and drag the file to the Drop Box in the user’s Public folder.
    Click the desktop to make sure you’re in the Finder, and then choose Go > Computer.
    Double-click the icon for your computer’s internal disk (usually named Macintosh HD) to open its folder.
    Open the Users folder, and then open the folder for the person to whom you’re giving a file.
    Open the user’s Public folder, and then drag the file to the Drop Box. To keep a copy of the file for your own use, hold down the Option key while you drag.
    Even though you can put items in another user’s Drop Box, you can’t open any Drop Box except your own.

  • 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.+

  • How do i share photos between users on a single imac?

    Hi all,
    I have purchased an imac and am in the process of copying across all my photos from my pc. I am sorting them and arranging them in IPhoto. My wife and two sons have user accounts on the mac, how can i allow them access to these photos from there user accounts?

    Thanks Roger this only raises another issue in as far as i'm using a 1TB hard drive as my Time machine back up so cant move my i photo library here, can i segregate the drive and use it for both or will i have to buy a seperate external hard drive, i'd like to share i tunes as well which i'm assuming is a similar process so disk is not an option.

  • How do I share photos between user on same laptop

    Hi.
    When I ipmort photos from my memorycard in iphoto, I want those pictures to be visible on my wifes user as well as mine. But they are only visible on one user account.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Enable "Sharing".
    In iPhoto 9.4.3 this works well between different accounts on the same computer.
    In the iPhoto Preferences > Sharing set "Share my Photos".
    And your wife should enable "Look for shared Photos".
    She will then be able to browse your shared photos from the "Shared" section of the source list.
    One thing to note: You both have to be signed into your respective accounts for this to work. Your wife can only browse your iPhoto library, while iPhoto is active in your user account. So she will have to log into her account by fast user switching - don't quit iPhoto and log off, when she starts working  from her account with her iPhoto library. While she is browsing your iPhoto library, you will see this warning, if you are trying to quit iPhoto.
    Regards

  • How do I share photos and music between different user accounts on the same macbook

    How do I share photos and music between different user accounts on the same Macbook? i.e. I want all to be able to access family photos when logged into their respective accounts. Same goes for the iTunes library. Hope this is possible...
    Thanks!

    To give other users read-only access to your iTunes library, use the Sharing features of iTunes. Sharing works over the local network as well as on the same computer. See the built-in help for details.
    To give others selective access to your iPhoto library, you have the option of using iCloud Photo Sharing, if the privacy implications don't bother you. The images will be stored temporarily on Apple servers.
    If you want to give full read/write access to more than one user, see the support articles linked below.

    There is a way to share the library without moving it to a secondary volume. If you really need to do that, ask for instructions.

    Hi Leon Pappanastos,
    I see that you want to label some faces in your photos in iPhoto ’09. Here is an article with some steps that will help you accomplish this:
    Name the face of a specific friend or family member
    Click to select Events in the Source list, select an event, and then select a photo that includes a person or people you want to name.
    Click the Info button in the toolbar to open the Information pane.
    Click the “unnamed” label and type a name to a face in your photo.
    As you type, iPhoto suggests names based on previous names entered, names in your Contacts application, and names of your Facebook friends (if you’ve set up a Facebook account in iPhoto). If you want, you can choose one of these names from the pop-up menu that appears.
    Note:   If no label appears below a face, it means iPhoto didn’t detect this face. It’s easy to add a missing face.
    Press the Return key.
    If the photo shows more than one person, repeat steps 3 and 4 for each face you want to name.
    You don’t have to name every person in a photo.
    If there are people you don’t intend to name, you can tell iPhoto to ignore their faces. Move your pointer over the face, and then click the X in the top-left corner of the box that appears.
    The box and “unnamed” label disappear.
    When you’re done naming the people in this photo, click the Info button again to close the Information pane.
    After you name someone in Faces, you can change the person’s name or include their full name at any time. Select Faces in the Source list to see your corkboard. Below a snapshot, click the name you want to change and type a new one.
    You can also add a person’s email address here, if you wish.

    Hi b noir, I also have two users on one pc with two different iTunes libraries.  But I also want to put them onto an external hard drive so that I can free up some memory on the pc.  So I figure I need to consolidate the two users iTunes libraries first before moving to hard drive?  But not quite sure how to do that on the iTunes 11?  Thanking you in advance!!

  • How do I share files between two Macs on my wireless network?

    I have an iMac G4 and an ibook G3 on a wireless network. I have "file sharing" activated on both computers. (Also Appletalk, which may or may not be a misguided move, but I got the idea from OSX "Help.")
    When I try to get from either computer onto the other, my computer is recognized by name (another alternative is to log on as a "guest"). I'm prompted for a password. None of the passwords I use works. I've tried the administrative passwords for both computers.
    How do I get beyond this hurdle to share files? I've posted elsewhere to no avail. This must be an easy one. How do you share files between two macs on one network?

    Do your accounts on the machines have the same short name? It's an issue I've seen a few names.. one machine with bsmith, the other with bobsmith, but the long names for both being "Bob Smith". The login windows would confuse users because it showed their names, but because the short names didn't match, it wouldn't work.
    The password you should use is the administrative one, so I don't know why you're not having luck.
