  • Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Splitting a library into smaller libraries
    list of your big library onto your newly created library This will copy those albums over to the new library including all their dates ratings comments etc After you have copied the photos to your new library you can use iPhoto to delete them from the big library to clear up the disk space in that library You can repeat this process with small or large batches of albums and any number of libraries to split up your collection into smaller more manageable pieces One common way of splitting up a library is to split things up by date e g so you have one library per year The easiest way to do that is to create a smart album in your iPhoto library that uses the Date field to show just photos from a certain range of dates For example if you wanted to make a library with just photos from 2013 you d set up a smart album with a date range from Jan 1 2013 to Dec 31 2013 Then in iPhoto Library Manager you can just create a new library then drag that smart album over to the new library to copy all those photos across Then just repeat for each library you want to create with a different date range Duplicate Prune Use the Duplicate Library command in the File menu to make a copy of the library folder that you want to split You can then open one copy of the library and move whatever photos and albums you don t want in that library to its trash Then open the second library and move the rest of the photos into that library s trash After double checking to make sure that no photos have been trashed from both libraries empty the trash of
