symbolic links seem to work
Authored by: j-beda on Jan 09, '02 11:39:01AM

I simply moved the library folder where I wanted it (to another drive) and then put a symbolic link of the same name (iPhoto Library) in the ~/Pictures folder.

I first tried with an alias, but that did not work.

So far iPhoto seems to operate fine with the symbolic link (created via the terminal command "ln -s", look to "man ln" for more instructions in the terminal).
