Chapter 2. Importing and Managing Photos > iPhoto Directory Structure

iPhoto Directory Structure

iPhoto creates its entire directory structure in the Pictures folder inside your user folder, starting with a folder called iPhoto Library. Inside it, iPhoto creates folders for each year (along with support files and folders—see below); inside each year folder are folders for months; inside those are folders for days; and only inside those day folders do you get to the actual files (Figure 2.16).

Figure 2.16. iPhoto uses a date-based directory structure that starts in your Pictures folder.
