How can I set a new directory path for iPhoto lib & photos?

I'd like to use an external drive to house all the iPhoto related files including the Library, data files and photos. I don't see an iPhoto Preference to set a different path. Is there another method to accomplish this? Should I edit the directory path as listed in the AlbumData.xml file?
Thanks!

Hi Nova,
copy the ENTIRE iPhoto Library folder (in your Pictures folder) to the external.
Launch iPhoto with the Option key held down.
At the prompt choose to open another library
Navigate to the library on the external and choose it.
Once it opens on the external this is the library iPhoto will use.
You can then delete the one on the internal or save it as backup or burn it for backup.

  • How can I set the default save format for photoshop edited photos?

    I just spotted that some of my photos that I've edited in Photoshop from Lightroom are a whopping 450MB. Looking deeper I found that they are saved as uncompressed TIFF files, this despite the default save format for Photoshop in Lightroom's preferences being set to ZIP compressed TIFF files. So why doesn't this setting work and how can I make Photoshop save things compressed?

    Sounds funny but first tell us what version of PS you have, what version of Lr and which OS. Thanks.

  • How can I set a new default app for .flac

    10.6.8
    This doesn't work:
    To change the application that opens a document:
    Select the document and choose File > Get Info.
    Click the triangle next to “Open with” to expand the section.
    Choose an application from the pop-up menu, or choose Other to locate a different application.
    If  you want to use that application to open all documents of the same type  as the current document and created by the same application, click  Change All.
    There is no "open with" section in "Get Info"
    I  have seen an open with dialog when clicking a file but it's not now  happening. One app (Wave pad--- trial)was selected, trash that app and  another (Audacity) is now default. I was never asked. I can change one  at a time in Get Info (Select New Original) but can't find a Change All option.
    Any ideas?

    If you do a Get Info (Control click and choose get info), you do not get a window like this with the choices I've circled?

  • How do you set/find the directory path for /i/

    Searching the forum, I found one note that indicated this was set in MARVEL.CONF (since I'm running 2.0, presumably DADS.CONF). However, looking at the DADS file for my install, I don't see anything resembling a directory mapping. What would the syntax be for this?

    In a default installation, you are supposed to add the mapping to httpd.conf
    But it could be in any file Apache includes.
    Seach for a line like
    Alias /i/     "/opt/oracle/product/10.1.0/Apache/Apache/images/"

    i was using same id on 2 iphones with no problems suddenly everything got mess, how can i set a new id w.out losing my contacts?

    I believe because you migrated from a Nokia to an iPhone you need to register the Bn phone number with your Apple ID so it can be used for iMessage. The Pn number seems to be the only one registered
    Go here > https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/
    Manage your Apple ID and see if that does the trick
    Hope that helps

  • How can I set a new passcode?

    How can I set a new passcode.  I cannot remember my old passcode and now I can't get in.  I can get phone calls and see text when it's sent to me but am unable to use. Help me please!!!!!

    The only answer for that is RESTORE your iPhone using any functioning computer with iTunes. Yes, you are going to loose all the data,
    Actually, wrong!!  If you try to restore using a computer the phone hasn't synced with, you'll have to enter the passcode into iTunes during the restore.
    In my experience, the most effective method for people who simultaneously "forget" the passcode that they had to use many times a day, and mysteriously lose access to the computer the phone synced with, is to ask the rightful owner for the passcode or return the phone to him.
    There is another method involving recovery mode, but the OP is on his own for that.
    Question:  Is is better to let your data "loose", or lose your data?

  • How can I create a new ring tone for my iPhone 4?

    How can I create a new ring tone for my iPhone 4? I followed the Garage Band process and ended up with the ring tone I want as a AAC audio file. It got stored in my iTunes a a song rather than a ring tone. How do I make it a ring tone vs. a song? I tried dragging it t the Ring Tone category at the bottom of the ITunes list, but it won't alloow me to move it?

    There's also an easy to use Applescript over at Doug's Applescripts for iTunes. It automates the whole thing. All you do is set the start and stop time on a file in iTuens and run the script. It will do everything else.

  • How can I set up two iPhones with the same contact, photos, music etc... but a different sim card and phone number. They will both be my phones, but one will be for use in other countries.

    How can I set up two iPhones with the same contact, photos, music etc... but a different sim card and phone number. They will both be my phones, but one will be for use in other countries.

    Phone A = phone with information you want duplicated
    Phone B = phone that you want to copy from A
    Backup Phone A.
    Wipe Phone B using these instructions. What to do before selling or giving away your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support
    Phone B should be on the 'Hello' screen. Do not swipe it. Launch iTunes. Plug in Phone B.
    When iTunes asks if you want to set up as new phone or restore from backup, choose restore from backup of Phone A.
    After this setup, any changes to one phone (i.e. adding a contact, downloading an app) will have to be manually duplicated on the second phone, if that is your desire). Making changes to one phone will not affect the other after setup.

  • :-)  How can we change the default file path for Bank file ( dmee ) ?

    Hi All,
    We encounter a problem.
    Electronic bank file ( created after a F110 run ) are created, in an automatic way to the DIR_TEMP directory. ( On the SAP server )
    How can we change the default file path for Bank files ( dmee ) ?
    We'd like to specify another path.
    Thx for your help.
    Erwan

    Hello,
    Make sure that you have created the directory in transaction code AL11 with the help of basis consultants.
    You can link your PC directory to the application server.
    You can maintain the path whether your file needs to get saved in OBPM4 against your DMEE structure example GB_BACS etc.
    If you do not maintain any path in OBPM4, then the file gets saved to temporary directory. If you give the directory path name in OBPM4, then the file gets saved to that directory with numbers 0001, 0002, 0003 etc till it reaches 9999 and reset from the beginning.
    If you give the path as well as file name as ABCD, then the file gets generated to that directory folder with ABCD0001, ABCD0002, ABCD0003 etc. till it reaches ABCD9999 and reset from the beginning.
    Hope this solves your problem.
    Regards,
    Ravi

    thanks

    If u have a common Error JSP named as ErrorPage.jsp
    You need to have the following piece of code in the JSP as :
    <%@ page isErrorPage ="true"%>
    This makes it as the Common Error Page for the Application. Now all you need to do is from other JSP's throw the Exception to teh container. The container will redirect to this Page and process accordingly.
    Thanks and regards,
