    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

  • Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Merging libraries
    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
