To merge iPhoto Library folders (III)

1.
From the source iPhoto Library, export the desired images by album or film roll into folders (see “Exporting Files” in Chapter 8, “Sharing Photos”).

2.
Copy those folders to the Mac with the destination iPhoto Library folder via a network or FireWire Target Disk Mode.

3.
Drag the folders into iPhoto to import their photos (see “Importing from Files,” earlier in this chapter).

✓ Tips

  • Unfortunately, you'll lose keywords, ratings, and comments when you import in these ways (actually, ratings and comments stick around with method II).

  • If you're burning to disc, use CD-RW media if you want to reuse that disc; use CD-R media if you want a backup.

  • When exporting via the third method, I recommend using the photo title as the filename or else you'll lose any work you put in titling your photos.
