Hello, I just purchased a new MacBook Pro primarily to replace my old PC as a photography machine. I would like to find out how to transfer my images from Picasa for Windows to iPhoto on my Mac, including all of the editing I have done to the images.

I guess this is pretty easy to do, but I just wanted to ask so I don't screw it up and end up deleting my photo libraries! Thanks in advance, Jack.

Personally, when I switched I went from the Windows version of Picasa to the Mac version of Picasa. I don't get on with iPhoto and Picasa auto syncs to my web storage.

With that out of the way....... what you do is save all edits you have in Picasa. There are a couple of ways of doing this. Select everything then export everything to folders. This saves everything with the edits but will duplicate you entire image library (although this gives you a tidy package to use as a basis for your iPhoto import).
The alternative is to select everything, save as an album then commit all album edits from the Album settings menu.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
