Reunite iPhoto libraries with Rendezvous in iPhoto4
Authored by: igor on Nov 28, '04 09:04:14PM
I found it simpler to temporarily move the ~/Photos/iPhoto Library folder into another folder, add the IPHOTO.XML file as described and then make a read-only image. Saves the fuss of copying things twice.

ArchivePath: must be the name of the actual folder.
ArchiveName: This is the name that will show up in iPhoto when you want to bring the photos back in to display them or whatever
