I'm abit lost here. I have all my pictures on my imac. However, I want to transfer all of it from the imac to the mac pro. I know you can export the pictures out but that's not what I want because face detection info + my events will all be lost. How can I do it so that everything is still attached.

Go to ~/Pictures/. Move the iPhoto Library file to the new computer. This file is actually a folder that contains all your photos, events, metadata, etc. It's all in one package. Then on the new computer, hold down Option when you launch iPhoto. You will be asked which library to use. Click on one and look below the field to see the path. Choose the one with the correct path and click OK. Now when you launch iPhoto, it will always open that library.
