  • Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Copying photos from one Mac to another
    other Mac An iPhoto library can only be open by one copy of iPhoto at a time so if iPhoto is still running on the remote Mac when you try copying photos you will probably receive an error message from iPhoto when you try to open that library complaining that the library is locked If this happens make sure to quit iPhoto on the other Mac before proceeding with copying your photos Different versions of iPhoto installed on the two Macs Ideally both machines should be running the same version of iPhoto iPhoto Library Manager will allow you to copy between libraries of different versions but the library that you re copying to must always match the version of iPhoto that s installed on the Mac you re using iPhoto Library Manager on If the destination library is newer than your version of iPhoto you won t be able to perform the copy and you might want to consider working on the Mac with the newer version to perform your copying If the destination library is older than your version of iPhoto then iPhoto will prompt you and ask if you want to upgrade the library to the new version
