  • Fat Cat Software - PowerPhotos Help - Copying limitations
    copied to the destination library and a regular album will be created and populated with those photos Original and edited versions of photos When you edit a photo in Photos it actually keeps around two copies of the photo the unedited original and a new JPG version that contains your edits This allows you to later discard your edits and revert to the original version of the photo if you wish Due to technical limitations with Photos it s not possible for PowerPhotos to copy both versions of the photo across to another library such that you can revert the photo just like you can in the original library PowerPhotos instead offers you the choice of which of the two you want to copy For album photo copying this is located in the preferences window and for merging this is located in the options section when setting up a merge If you choose to copy the unedited original then your edits from the original library will not be transferred and just the original photo will be copied If you choose to copy the edited JPG then only the edited version of the photo will be transferred This setting will make no difference for any photos that have not been edited since there is only one copy of the photo in that case The original versions of movie files will always be copied regardless of the setting you have chosen Bursts If you have used burst mode on your iPhone to take a series of photos that is shown by Photos as a single burst only the selected photo for that burst is made available by Photos and can be copied to another library Additionally if you have split a burst apart into individual photos and then copy them to another

  • Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - What can and can't be copied
    one library to another In addition iPhoto Library Manager will also copy each photo s keywords rating description title and date over to the new library This includes all photos formats including RAW photos and movie files Modified versions of photos paired with originals When you edit a photo iPhoto keeps a copy of the original photo around allowing you to revert your changes and go back to the original version of the photo iPhoto Library Manager will copy both the modified and original versions of each photo so that you can use the Revert to Original command in the destination library just like you could in the original library Individual photo edits When you edit a photo using only iPhoto it keeps track of the series of edits you have done and allows you to go back and change the individual edits later For example if you perform a saturation adjustment iPhoto remembers the saturation level and lets you readjust it independently later on even if you ve performed other edits If you are running iPhoto 8 0 or later iPhoto Library Manager will transfer this list of edits along with the photo so you can change individual edits in the destination library just like in the original library Places data In Photo 8 0 and later you can assign geographic locations to your photos within iPhoto iPhoto Library Manager will transfer all place information along with the photos when performing a copy between libraries Exception if you are copying photos from an iPhoto 9 library to an iPhoto 8 library then custom places created in the Manage My Places window in iPhoto will not be transferred latitude longitude information for each photos will still be copied though Faces data iPhoto 8 0 and later will automatically detect people s faces in your photos and allow you to assign names to them iPhoto Library Manager will copy this information between libraries along with your photos Regular albums When copying albums between libraries a new album with the same name will be created in the destination library and all the same photos that were in the album in the original library will be added into the newly created album Folder albums In supported versions if you have albums organized into folders in the iPhoto album list those folder albums and their hierarchy will be recreated in the destination library In iPhoto versions where this isn t supported any regular albums contained in folders will be created in a flat list in iPhoto Smart albums Smart albums will be recreated in the destination library with the same set of rules as in the original library Exception if you are copying between an iPhoto 9 library and a library of an earlier version of iPhoto smart albums cannot be recreated when doing so Events When copying photos between libraries events will be recreated in the destination library with the same photos as they contained in the original library Each event s name

  • iPhoto Library Manager Help
    to keep Keep duplicate with best metadata compares several criteria of each photo including the number of faces that have been identified in the photo keywords that have been assigned to the photo whether the photo has been assigned to a geographic location and whether the photo has been given a custom title Photos that contain more of this metadata will be chosen over other photos that don t have this metadata assigned to them If you have different copies of a particular photo and you ve done more face identification keyword tagging and so forth on some photos than others then this rule can be helpful to choose the photo that you ve done the most work on Keep the largest duplicate compares the file size of each duplicate photo and keeps whichever one is the largest This is useful if you have some duplicates that have been scaled down from the original so you can keep the largest copy and get rid of the smaller ones Editing rules The built in rules are a good start but since everybody s photo collection is unique you may need to create a custom duplicate rule to choose keepers according to what makes the most sense for your own photos To create a custom rule click the rules pop up menu and select Edit Rules from the bottom of the menu This will present you with the following window You can view but not edit the built in rules to see how they are implemented To create your own rule click the gear button in the upper right and select New Rule from the menu that appears If you d like a rule similar to one of the built in rules select that rule from the pop up menu then click the gear button and select Duplicate Rule to make a copy of that built in rule You can specify a name for your new rule by typing it in the Name field Each duplicate rule is made up of one or more criteria that you d like to use to compare the photos in each duplicate group By evaluating these criteria one or more photos from the group will be chosen as the keeper from that group The criteria available to compare include the photos rating modification date size format and much more See the Criteria Details section for more information Because in many cases the duplicate photos will also have identical values for many of these attributes you can specify multiple criteria to evaluate the photos by If the first criteria is identical for some or all the photos in the group the evaluation will then proceed to the second criteria and so on until they have all been evaluated How rules are evaluated In the example above we have three photos that have been identified as duplicates by iPhoto Library Manager and the four criteria from the rule displayed above that were specified to evaluate the duplicate photos The first criteria says to choose whichever photo has the highest rating However all the photos have the same rating 0 stars so this criteria does not choose any photos and evaluation continues to the next criteria The second criteria says to prefer whichever photo has the newest modification date Two of the photos have been edited and have the same modification date but the photo in Default Library has an older modification date So this criteria narrows down the group from three photos to just the ones from MacBook Library and iMac Library and then evaluation continues to the next criteria The third criteria says to prefer a photo that came from the library iMac Library over photos from other libraries One of the two remaining photos is from the iMac Library so that photo is marked by this criteria as the chosen photo Since we have now narrowed down the group to a single photo the fourth criteria is not needed and is skipped The photo from iMac Library is selected as the keeper and will appear with a white checkmark over it in the duplicate browser Single vs multiple keepers By default only a single photo is marked as a keeper from each duplicate group If your duplicate rule does not narrow things down to just a single photo then iPhoto Library Manager will pick one of the remaining photos for you as the keeper However if you uncheck the Always choose only a single keeper checkbox then all the photos that make it to the end of criteria evaluation will be marked as keepers For example let s say you have a duplicate group with two photos from Library A and two photos from Library B and that you have a duplicate rule set up with a single criteria that says Library is Library A Both photos from Library B will be eliminated by the criteria leaving just the two photos from Library A If Always choose only a single keeper is checked then iPhoto Library Manager will only mark one of the two photos from Library A as a keeper if it is unchecked then both photos from library A are marked as keepers Criteria details The following is a list of the criteria that can be used in duplicate rules to select photos from among a set of duplicates Library chooses based on what library they belong to If you are searching across multiple libraries for duplicates this criteria can be useful if you prefer to take actions on photos from one library over another library Rating chooses based on the star rating given to them in iPhoto File size chooses either the smallest or largest file in the duplicate group Note that for edited photos this will use the size of the modified version of the photo and not the original Description if you have entered custom descriptions in iPhoto for your photos this criteria lets you choose duplicates based on the length of that description text Photos with no description are treated as having a length of zero i e they will always have the shortest description of named faces chooses according to the number of faces that have been assigned names in iPhoto Faces that have been located by iPhoto but not assigned a name are ignored of keywords chooses according to how many keywords have been assigned to each photo Modification date chooses based on the date each photo was last edited Date chooses based on the date the photo was taken Format allows you to prefer one format of photo over another For example if you have some photos for which you have both a RAW and a JPG version you can opt to always choose the RAW over the JPG Album chooses photos based on whether they belong to one of the albums in the iPhoto library This can be used in cases where you have some duplicate photos but one instance of the photo has been added to an album and you want to make not to remove the copy of the photo that has been added to an album Place chooses photos according to whether they have a geographic location assigned to them in iPhoto Title chooses based on whether the photo has been given a custom title or not iPhoto assigns a default title to each photo base on the photo s filename e g IMG 0001 but if you have typed in your own titles for some photos this can help preserve the photos that have those custom titles Flagged chooses based on whether a photo has been flagged in iPhoto Hidden chooses based on whether a photo has been hidden in iPhoto Performing actions on duplicate photos Once your duplicate rule has decided which photos are keepers you can specify one or more actions that you d like to perform on the photos in the duplicate group Actions include things like flagging hiding or trashing the photo adding a duplicate keyword to it or adding the photo to an album You can specify one type of action to be taken on the keeper photos and another action to be taken on the nonkeeper photos The most common configuration will be to move nonkeepers to the trash and take no action on the keepers but you can customize this to take different actions on both kinds of photos Selecting a new action from one of the pop up menus at the bottom of the window will update the duplicate browser to show what action will be taken on each photo You can also control click on a photo to manually assign an action The available action types are Move to Trash moves the photo to iPhoto s trash The photo will not immediately be deleted from the library so this action can be undone if necessary To do so open the library in iPhoto and select the Trash item in the album list on the left That will show you all the photos that are currently in the trash in that library To move photos out of the trash either drag them over to the main Photos album or select them and then choose Put Back from the Photos menu at the top of the screen this must be done in iPhoto itself not in iPhoto Library Manager Flag marks the photo as flagged so it will appear with an orange flag icon in its corner when browsing in iPhoto You can also see all your flagged photos by selecting the Flagged album in the album list Hide marks the photo as hidden in iPhoto This makes it so that the photo no longer appears when scrolling through your photos in iPhoto You can reveal hidden photos by choosing Hidden Photos from the View menu in iPhoto Hidden photos will be displayed but with an orange X displayed in the corner of the photo To unhide a photo select it and choose Unhide Photo from the Photos menu Add to Album this will add the photo to an album named Duplicates in the iPhoto library If an album named Duplicates already exists the photos will be added to that album otherwise iPhoto Library Manager will create a new Duplicates album and then add the photos to it Assign Keyword adds a keyword named duplicate to the photo This will allow you to see which photos are marked as duplicates by looking at their keywords use the search field in iPhoto to find photos marked with the duplicate keyword or set up a smart album that shows photos marked with that keyword No changes will actually be made to your library until you click the Apply button in iPhoto Library Manager while browsing your duplicate photos This allows you to experiment with different rules and actions and see the results before committing to actually making any changes to the library Changing duplicate actions manually While duplicate rules provide a very flexible way to decide which duplicate photos to keep and get rid of sometimes you may still want to make some decisions yourself rather than leaving everything up to the automated rules You can do this by clicking on the small arrow that appears in the lower right hand corner of a particular photo when you move the mouse over it or control clicking anywhere on the photo This will display a menu showing the list of actions that you can assign to the photo Choosing one of the actions will assign that action to the photo replacing any existing action that was assigned to it by a duplicate rule If you don t want any action taken on a particular photo just choose the Clear Action menu item instead The Mark as Keeper menu item can be used to change which photo is marked as the keeper denoted by a checkmark above the photo When you change a group s keeper photo the default actions you ve chosen for keepers and nonkeepers will automatically be assigned to the photos in the duplicate group based on your new keeper choice Each action can also be assigned to a photo via a keyboard shortcut as listed below If you use the arrow keys to navigate through the photos in the duplicate browser you can use this in conjunction with the keyboard shorctuts to customize your duplicate actions without ever using the mouse Keyboard shortcuts T Move to Trash K Assign Keyword F Flag Photo H Hide Photo A Add to Album delete Clear Action return Mark as Keeper Duplicate tips and tricks Here are a few tips and tricks that might be helpful when using iPhoto Library Manager to deal with duplicate photos in your libraries Make sure to try out the various duplicate detection options to see which settings work best for your particular photo collection For instance if you are having some photos which you think should be identified as duplicates but aren t try enabling the Also compare filename date option This is more inclusive and will identify photos that are not byte for byte matches of each other Duplicate rules can be very helpful in eliminating the laborious work of going through all the found duplicates and picking which one s you want to take action on Some common examples include If you re looking through multiple libraries for duplicates and would prefer to keep duplicates in a particular one of the libraries make a Belongs to library rule that will mark photos from that library as keepers If you want to trash photos from the other libraries set the Nonkeeper action to Move to Trash If you have multiple copies of photos but have added more metadata to some copies than others e g by assigning keywords identifying faces etc use a rule based on the metadata that you have assigned to choose the better photos For example you could use the of faces rule criteria to prefer the photos that you ve identified faces for over those that you haven t Nothing will actually be done to your photos until you click the Apply button when browsing through them so you can experiment as much as you like with different rules and options If you d like to compare two different sets of rules settings to each other you can option click the Find Duplicates button in the toolbar to bring up a second Find Duplicates item in the library list You can give different settings to the two and quickly go back and forth between the two to see how they differ The Move to Trash action only moves the photo to the iPhoto trash so it doesn t immediately delete the photos for good You can always double check the iPhoto trash before emptying it to see if there are any photos you d rather not get rid of Also you do need to empty the iPhoto trash if you want to free up disk space taken up by the duplicate photos If you can t get everything you want it a single Find Duplicates operation you can try making multiple passes with different options chosen on each pass through In such a scenario if you use the Assign Duplicate keyword action on an initial pass on the second pass you can check the box to ignore photos with the duplicate keyword assigned to them That will let you whittle the set of duplicates down on each successive pass Copying albums and events When keeping your photos separated in multiple libraries you sometimes need to copy a set of photos from one library to another With iPhoto the only way to do this is to export the photos from one library and then import them into another However in the process of doing this you lose all the data you ve worked to assign to your photos such as titles dates keywords ratings places and faces iPhoto Library Manager provides a way to copy photos directly from one library to another without losing this valuable information To copy albums or events to another library select them in iPhoto Library Manager then drag them them onto the library you would like to copy them to iPhoto Library Manager will first collect the information about those photos from the source library and then import those photos into the destination library and restore all the photo information as it was before If a photo has been modified in the original library then the original version of the photo will also be transferred to the destination library so that the Revert to Original command in iPhoto will work as expected If you drag more than one album at once and a photo belongs to more than one of those albums the photo will only be imported once but will be added to all the appropriate newly created albums in the destination library Note that you cannot drag albums from iPhoto itself into iPhoto Library Manager you must drag the albums from iPhoto Library Manager s own window in order to perform a copy Also only regular albums folders and smart albums can be copied between libraries Copying keepsake items like calendars books and slideshows or copying web galleries between libraries is not supported Unregistered users are limited to only copying albums events totalling no more than 20 photos Copying individual photos In addition to copying albums or events you can also drag individual photos from iPhoto Library Manager s photo browser and drop them on another library in your library list to copy the photos and their metadata over No albums will be recreated when doing this but the photos will be imported grouped into events with the same name as the events they belong to in the original library To ensure that this extra information will come over you should drag the photos from iPhoto Library Manager s image browser and not from a Finder window or some other program that lets you drag files If you drag from somewhere else they will be treated as regular photos and the extra information associated with them will not be brought into the destination library Importing new photos into a library In addition to copying photos directly from another iPhoto library you can also import new photos directly into one of your iPhoto libraries by dragging the photos from the Finder and dropping them onto a library in the iPhoto Library Manager window iPhoto Library Manager will automatically open up the library they were dropped onto and import the photos in iPhoto for you Unlike when copying directly from another library there will be no additional metadata such as ratings keywords faces etc for iPLM to copy across This does still have the advantage of being more convenient than opening the library manually plus you can still take advantage of iPLM s duplicate detection system when importing photos this way Merging libraries iPhoto Library Manager allows you to merge the contents of multiple libraries together into one while preserving all your albums events and photo metadata For a full list of what items can and can t be copied which varies depending on what version of iPhoto you re using look here To begin a merge click the Merge Libraries toolbar button or select Merge Libraries from the Library menu This will present you with the following view for setting up your merge There are four main parts to setting up your merge Choose Source Libraries To specify one or more libraries whose contents you would like to merge into another library drag the libraries from the library list on the left and drop them onto the area labelled Choose Source Libraries Choose Destination Library Then you must specify what iPhoto library you want to receive all the photos and other content you re merging You can either drag one of your existing libraries to where it says Drop destination library here or if you wish your existing libraries to be merged into a brand new library click the Merge into a new empty library button You will then be prompted to choose a name and location on your hard drive to store the new library If you wish to change this location later just click the Change location button to do so Duplicate Handling When merging libraries iPhoto Library Manager provides an option to only import a single copy of any photos which are duplicates and appear multiple times among the libraries being merged together If the Eliminate duplicates while merging checkbox is off then all photos will be imported regardless of whether they are duplicates Similar to when using the Find Duplicates command you can specify a list of criteria for iPLM to use when deciding which photo from a group of duplicate photos should be kept You can read more about how these criteria work in the duplicate rules chapter of the manual Note that unlike when using Find Duplicates you do not specify an actions e g flagging moving to trash etc when merging since iPLM is simply using the rules to choose a single photo to import from each group of duplicate photos You can read more about how this works in the Handling Duplicates When Copying section of the manual You are also given some options to customize how iPhoto Library Manager determines that two photos are duplicates of one another You can read more about these in the Choosing keepers with duplicate rules section When merging into an existing iPhoto library if a group of duplicate photos contains one photo that is already in the destination library that photo will always be the one to be kept rather than a photo from any of the source libraries being merged The reason for this is because there is not a reliable way to replace an existing photo with a different one in iPhoto including making sure that photo appears in the correct place in albums keepsake items web galleries and other various aspects of the library structure The best way around this limitation is to merge into a new library rather than an existing library Options Some other options are configurable when setting up your merge Combine contents of albums with same name If you check this option then if the libraries being merged contain albums with the same name then only one album with that name will be created in the merged library and the contents of the albums from the original library will be combined into the single album in the merged library If this option is off then a separate album will be created for each source album and the merged library will have multiple albums with the same name Note that if you have your albums organized into folders in iPhoto the folder names will also be taken into account For example if you have an album named Macworld inside a folder named 2011 and another also named Macworld inside a folder named 2010 those two Macworld albums will remain separate even if the combine option is enabled Copy the main Photos album from each source library Each iPhoto library has a special Photos album at the top of the album list which shows every photo in the library If this option is enabled then iPhoto Library Manager will create an additional album in the merged library that contains all the photos from the source library So for example if you re merging two libraries named 2009 and 2010 then your merged library will have two new albums named Photos 2009 and Photos 2010 with each album containing all the photos from the 2009 and 2010 libraries respectively Show Preview By default iPhoto Library Manager will show you a preview of what the merged library will look like before it actually proceeds to start the actual merge You can disable this preview if you want iPLM to automatically proceed to performing the merge without needing to approve it manually Backing up your library If you choose to merge into an existing library rather than a new one you ll be prompted with the option to make a backup copy of the destination library before proceeding with the merge This is a convenience in case you end up wanting to revert back to the library in its pre merge state Once you have set up your merge click the Preview button to advance to the preview screen where you can see what the results of your merge will look like Merging tips and tricks If you have more than two libraries to merge together you don t necessarily need to merge them all in one step You can start by just merging two of them together see what the results are like and then merge each subsequent library one at a time This lets you make sure you re getting the results you re getting and break the work into pieces so you can use iPhoto for various tasks between merges if you d like It s usually faster to merge into an existing library than to merge everything into a brand new library This is because iPLM will not have to reimport the photos from the library you choose to be the destination for the merge cutting down on the total number of imports necessary You will want to back up the destination library before merging but backing up the library is still much faster than reimporting all of its photos into a new iPhoto library You can either use the Duplicate Library command before setting up your merge or just say yes when iPLM asks you whether you want to back up your library before merging Do note that there are a few types of items that iPLM can t copy between libraries most notably the various keepsake items such as books calendars and slideshows If you have one library in which you have some of these items that you want to preserve use that library as the destination and since those items already exist in that library they will just remain untouched as the merge is performed The merge preview will show you exactly what will and won t be included in the merged library When weeding out duplicates while merging if you would like to have iPLM prefer photos from a particular libraries over those from other libraries use one or more Belongs to library rules to specify your preferred library order If you don t explicity set up rules for this the libraries will be ranked based on the order they appear in the Choose Source Libraries list If you d like to play with two different merge setups at once to compare the two previews you can option click the Merge Libraries button to create a second merge item in the library list Merging does create new copies of all the photos being merged in the destination library This means you should make sure the drive containing the destination has at least as much free space as the sum of the sizes of the libraries being merged Previewing your copying Whenever you use iPhoto Library Manager to copy photos whether it be by copying albums and events merging libraries or rebuilding your library iPhoto Library Manager will give you the opportunity to preview what the destination library will look like before actually proceeding to copy the photos over You can browse the library preview just like you can do with a normal library including both grid view and list view customizable subtitles and columns performing searches and so on This lets you inspect a number of aspects of what will be copied Missing photos If there are photos that are missing from the library that they re being copied from any such photos will not be displayed when looking at the preview iPhoto Library Manager will log the locations of any missing photos which you can find by clicking the View Log button in the upper right and reading the log messages shown there Duplicate handling If you are performing a merge or copying photos and have specified to skip copying duplicate photos a View Duplicates button will be visible in the upper right which you can click to view what duplicates iPhoto Library Manager has found among the photos being copied In each group of duplicate photos a checkmark will appear above the photo which has been chosen to be included the rest of the photos in the group will not be copied Additionally if you go to the View menu and in the Show Subtitle submenu choose Library that will show the name of each photo s library of origin underneath that photo in list view the submenu will be Show Columns instead of Show Subtitle Album event organization The preview will show you what your albums and events will look like in the destination library after the photos have been copied over which lets you see the effects of several different settings Some examples include When merging if you have the Combine contents of albums with same name option enabled you can see how those albums will be combined When rebuilding with the Scavenge orphaned photos option enabled an album named Scavenged Photos will appear in the preview showing what addtional photos iPLM was able to scavenge from inside the library package Handling duplicates when copying Whenever you use iPhoto Library Manager to copy photos albums events merge libraries or rebuild a library you can have iPhoto Library Manager attempt to detect duplicate photos in the photos being copied This works much the same way as when you use the Find Duplicates command except that once the duplicate analysis has been done instead of taking specific actions on the duplicate photos e g flagging moving to the trash etc one photo from each group of duplicates is chosen to be the one that is copied and the rest of the duplicate photos will be skipped When looking at the preview of the photo copying you re about to do you can click the View Duplicates button in the upper right to see what duplicates were found among the photos being copied In each group of duplicate photos a white checkmark will be displayed over the photo which will be included when copied and the rest of the photos in the group will not be copied If any of the photos which are not being copied belong to any albums which are being copied the checked photo will be added to that album in place of the other photo If you wish to change which photo is used for a particular group either control click the photo and choose Use This Photo from the menu that comes up or select the photo and press the return key Note that regardless of the duplicate criteria you specify if one of the duplicate photos is located in the library that you are copying to that photo will always be chosen over new photos that are being copied into the library The reason for this is because in order to use one of the other duplicate photos instead the duplicate already in the library would need to be deleted from the library then the new photo would need to be added to all the places in the destination library e g the photo s event any albums it belongs to any web galleries slideshows books etc where the original photo was Unfortunately this is not possible due to technical limitations with iPhoto so we just keep the existing photo in preference to any photo being newly copied into the library What can and can t be copied Due to technical limitations with iPhoto not every type of item in an iPhoto library can be copied to another library The table below summarized what can and can t be copied in each version of iPhoto with more details explanations of each item below This applies to copying albums and events between libraries via drag and drop merging libraries and rebuilding a library iPhoto Library Manager requires iPhoto 8 1 2 or later to be installed in order to copy photos Photos can be copied from libraries that come from iPhoto 7 or earlier but those older libraries are effectively read only so you cannot copy any new photos into an older library iPhoto 7 or earlier iPhoto 8 iPhoto 9 Photos with basic metadata rating keywords date description title hidden flagged Yes read only Yes Yes Modified versions of photos paired with originals Yes read only Yes Yes Individual photo edits e g cropping filters color adjustments etc Yes read only Yes Yes Places data n a Yes Yes Faces data n a Yes Yes Regular albums Yes read only Yes Yes Folder albums Yes read only Yes Yes Smart albums Yes read only Yes Yes Events Yes read only Yes Yes Keepsake items books slideshows etc No No No Facebook Flickr galleries No No iPhoto auto syncs Photos with basic metadata Photos can obviously be copied from one library to another In addition iPhoto Library Manager will also copy each photo s keywords rating description title and date over to the new library This includes all photos formats including RAW photos and movie files Modified versions of photos paired with originals When you edit a photo iPhoto keeps a copy of the original photo around allowing you to revert your changes and go back to the original version of the photo iPhoto Library Manager will copy both the modified and original versions of each photo so that you can use the Revert to Original command in the destination library just like you could in the original library Individual photo edits When you edit a photo using only iPhoto it keeps track of the series of edits you have done and allows you to go back and change the individual edits later For example if you perform a saturation adjustment iPhoto remembers the saturation level and lets you readjust it independently later on even if you ve performed other edits If you are running iPhoto 8 0 or later iPhoto Library Manager will transfer this list of edits along with the photo so you can change individual edits in the destination library just like in the original library Places data In Photo 8 0 and later you can assign geographic locations to your photos within iPhoto iPhoto Library Manager will transfer all place information along with the photos when performing a copy between libraries Exception if you are copying photos from an iPhoto 9 library to an iPhoto 8 library then custom places created in the Manage My Places window in iPhoto will not be transferred latitude longitude information for each photos will still be copied though Faces data iPhoto 8 0 and later will automatically detect people s faces in your photos and allow you to assign names to them iPhoto Library Manager will copy this information between libraries along with your photos Regular albums When copying albums between libraries a new album with the same name will be created in the destination library and all the same photos that were in the album in the original library will be added into the newly created album Folder albums In supported versions if you have albums organized into folders in the iPhoto album list those folder albums and their hierarchy will be recreated in the destination library In iPhoto versions where this isn t supported any regular albums contained in folders will be created in a flat list in iPhoto Smart albums Smart albums will be recreated in the destination library with the same set of rules as in the original library Exception if you are copying between an iPhoto 9 library and a library of an earlier version of
