I did do a search on here, but found no help. I have almost 3,000 photos. When iphoto became photos did every picture go to the photos library? Sometimes it seems I can only find them on iphoto. I want to get rid of iphoto now and only use photos, how do I know for sure all of my pictures will be saved in photos?
I can only find the iphoto library.

Thank you, but when I do this : Relaunch the Photos app and immediately hold down the Option key until you see the Library selection screen, then choose one of the following options:

This does not show up23695

I dont know why...............

Should be a menu to choose between the two apps. What do you get? What OS are you using?

Because you're doing it wrong. Hold down the option key BEFORE AND DURING the launching of Photos (or iPhoto for that matter).
