Reuniting iPhoto libraries in iPhoto4
Authored by: mantei on Feb 03, '04 03:49:32PM

I also plan on consolidating separate libraries under iPhot4. I've noticed that you can choose any number of albums and then burn a CD, but you can't choose the albums together with the whole library (the icon at the top). To avoid losing the photos not already in albums, I plan to create an album "Remaining Photos", and move the remnants to it. According to an article in Macintouch, for the transfer from a CD back to the new, larger iPhoto library, each photo should be in one album only. Presumably this means having to go through the whole library and checking that nothing is already in an album. Fortunately I only give meaningful titles to photos in albums, so anything with a title like "IMG_1000.jpg" shouldn't be in an album. Still seems like a complicated and roundabout way to carry out a simple task.

Find Unassigned Images from Apples iPhoto scripts collection is what you need I think.
