Importing from Files

If you used a digital camera before iPhoto came out, you probably have a collection of photos already on your hard disk. iPhoto can import these files in several ways.

Ways to import files into iPhoto:

  • From the Finder, drag the desired files or folders into iPhoto’s display pane or album pane (Figure 2.9).

    Figure 2.9. The easiest way to import files into iPhoto is to drag the desired files or folders into the display pane or the album pane, as I’ve done here.

    iPhoto starts importing the images. If you want to halt the import, click Stop (Figure 2.10). When the import finishes, the photos appear in the display pane.

    Figure 2.10. iPhoto proceeds to import the images, showing a thumbnail of the current photo and a progress bar of how many have been processed. If you need to stop the import, click the Stop button.

  • From the File menu, choose Import. In the open file dialog, navigate to your images, select the desired file(s) or folder(s), and click Open (Figure 2.11).

    Figure 2.11. To import existing image files into iPhoto, choose Import from the File menu, navigate to your images, select the desired files, and click Open.
