I don't really use iPhoto so I'm not a good person to ask. You might want to start a new post in the applications section about it if you get no answers because the iPhoto problem is a separate issue. I believe there is an export images feature in iPhoto. If she doesn't use that feature then I don't believe all the editing she has done to her images will be saved.

You are right that if her files were just sitting in a folder then you could just copy and paste the files over to the external hard drive. It's very similar to Windows. If she needs anything else to backup then you can practice by copying & pasting or dragging & dropping the files to the external. I believe iPhoto just needs to be handled differently. Since I don't use iPhoto I just copy all my images over to my external.
