    your iPhoto library s movies in the iMovie browser to allow you to look and scrub through the movies quickly These thumbnail movies are stored inside the iPhoto library itself alongside the original movies While usually smaller than the original movies they can still take up a significant amount of space many megabytes a piece If you have a large number of movies in your library this can multiply quickly to take up large amounts of space even multilpe gigabytes in some cases The rebuilt merged copy of the library however has not yet had these thumbnails generated by iMovie so that can account for a large difference in the size of the new library iPod photo cache When you sync your iPhoto library with your iPod or iPhone iTunes creates an iPod Photo Cache folder inside the iPhoto library which contains cached versions of the library s photos which allow iTunes to sync with your iPod iPhone much more quickly This cache can take up quite a bit of space sometimes hundreds of megabytes and if you haven t synced the rebuild merged library with an iPod iPhone this cache folder will not be present there Photos in the trash If your original library has a bunch of photos in the iPhoto trash those photos are not included when rebuilding or merging libraries The actual photos still exist on your hard drive though and continue to take up disk space until you empty the iPhoto trash in the original library The Don t import duplicates option Similarly if you had this option checked in iPLM s preferences or your merge setup and any duplicates were encountered during the rebuild merge the additional copies of any duplicates will not have been imported into the new library Database cache fragmentation Over

  • Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Externally referenced photos
    advanced preferences labelled Copy items to the iPhoto Library This is on by default but if you turn it off then when you import photos into your library iPhoto will create aliases that point to those photos in their original location rather than making its own separate copies of them This can be useful if you need to store photos on a separate drive or more easily access them from another program These are often referred to as referenced photos and photos stored inside the library as managed photos iPhoto Library Manager understands and deals with referenced photos so you can view and copy such photos just fine using iPLM However when you use iPLM to copy photos to another library whether it be using the merge or rebuild commands or by dragging and dropping individual albums events or photos those photos will always be copied into the destination iPhoto library i e as managed photos regardless of whether the photos are managed or referenced in the library they re coming from This behavior is intended to minimize the chances of doing things like accidentally deleting the only copy of a photo when you think that you actually have multiple

  • Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Disappearing iPhoto libraries on external drives
    will want to mount the drive at that same Volumes External location only now there is a folder there so it can no longer use that precise location So what it does instead is to mount the drive at Volumes External 1 or sometimes Volumes External 1 depending on your version of OS X so the drive s contents show up there instead This is not immediately obvious though since the name of the drive appears the same in the Finder In fact if the same crash outage unplugging happens multiple times you can end up with multiple folders e g External External 1 External 2 etc iPhoto stores the location of its current library as a simple path so if you open up iPhoto with a library on your external drive set as the current library it will go looking in Volumes External instead of Volumes External 1 This results in an empty library being created on your internal hard drive and thus the disappearing library phenomenon Luckily the solution to this problem isn t terribly hard There are actually two different ways you can go about fixing it one simpler method and one more thorough method The simple method is to select the library in iPhoto Library Manager and use the Remove Library button to remove that library from iPLM s library list don t worry this won t delete any files it only removes the library s entry from iPLM s list Then click the Add Library button and go select the library on the external drive to add it back to iPLM but this time with the correct path e g starting with Volumes External 1 This should allow you to get your library back up and running quickly However doing this doesn t alter the
