Other Backup Options

What if you don’t have a writable optical drive or don’t want to end up with your photos existing only in an iPhoto Library? You have some other options.

Other backup options:

  • Copy your iPhoto Library (remember that it’s in your Pictures folder) to an external hard disk.

  • Use another type of backup device, such as a tape drive, to back up your iPhoto Library folder (and while you’re at it, I recommend backing up your Home folder, or even your entire Mac).

  • Export photos to folders in the Finder, then manually burn them to CD or DVD to back them up with your desired organizational approach. It’s more work, but you get exactly what you want at the end.
