Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Receiving an iPhoto Disc

Receiving an iPhoto Disc

What if friends or relatives who use iPhoto send you iPhoto discs containing their photos? Although you can view their photos directly from the disc, if you want to edit a photo or create a book, you must first import the desired images. (See Chapter 2, “Importing and Managing Photos,” for more on importing photos.)

To import from an iPhoto disc:

1.
Insert the iPhoto disc into your Mac’s optical drive and switch to iPhoto.

iPhoto displays the disc in your album pane (Figure 6.61).

Figure 6.61. iPhoto discs appear in your album pane with any albums on the disc showing up under the disc name.


2.
Select one or more photos and drag them to your Photo Library album to import them just into the Photo Library, into an album to import them and add them to that album, or to the bottom of the album pane to import them and create a new album (Figure 6.62).

Figure 6.62. 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 photos, showing thumbnails and a progress bar. Click Stop to halt a mistaken import.
