View Full Version : How can I back up iphoto albums?

I got a new imac and I want to be able to view my iphoto keepsakes in both computers. How can I save these albums from one imac and open them in another one?

Thanks guys!

If you go into pictures there is a file called iphoto library. This has the whole kit and kaboodle. Just drag n drop that into your new one in the same location and this will become the default library (this will delete your current one on the new iMac).
If you just want to view the photos over a network the in iphoto/preferences/sharing has all you need.

do the 'sharing' thing, open iPhoto on the main computer, look in the preferences for sharing, and then look for it on the other computer... much easier than trying to copy files here and there
