An easy way to access multiple iPhoto5 libraries
Authored by: dgarcia42 on Mar 16, '05 03:19:24PM

I keep my libraries in disk images - all of which are volumes named "Pictures" - and iPhoto 5 thinks its library is in /Volumes/Pictures - then I just select/open the appropriate disk image before i open up iPhoto et. Voila - i'm all set.

This further lets me do things like password protect some albums vs. others, etc...

An easy way to access multiple iPhoto5 libraries

I tried making disc images of libraries, but even when named 'Pictures' they don't auto-open the way they do when an actual dvd is inserted.

Plus, iPhoto 5 says it needs to convert the thumbnails, but then closes down saying it needs another 78Mb. Any suggestions?

Just guessing, maybe you need to use sparse disk images (i.e. selfexpanding ones).

I guess that's also a good way to overcome the permissions issues you experience when multiple users want to use one library, right?
