    how to Export/Copy/Transfer from iPhoto
    hi,

    have a problem with iPhoto usage.

    I have in it about 900 of photos organized by folders and albums.
    Now I want to export that strcuture including the photos to an external drive.

    How I do that ?

    Note: I need only the pictures that I see the albums(some of them are different from originals, because beeing edited with iphoto)

    Never done it before but I would have thought iPhoto would have an export option. Otherwise I would probably use some sort of copy program and clone them to the other drive.

    yes, but they look in desired structure in iPhoto, when you browse the Pictures folder with finder you see some alien names for files and folders, with annoying folder structure where you never get to recognize your photos.

    So I assume iPhoto was written with the idea in mind that it has to be a good photo manager with filesystem as backend, and now I want to export my work that I've been creating using iPhoto and and spent some amount of hours. Probably later after a system reinstall I will want to import the same structure back into iPhoto that was just now exported.

    You can just make another library
    Press and hold option and then you will get a box asking if you want to create another library. You then create one on an Extern disk (Example) you can then move all your pictures to that disc.then just hold down option and launch iPhoto the screen appears asking which library you want to use

    What Kilted1 said! Agree wholeheartedly. Just stay out of the finder! Forget it is there, and do your exporting, etc. from within the app.

    thanks, will try that in the future.

    Still it is not clear how I will migrate the photos between those two libraries if there is one instance of the iPhoto running :-/
