Forum Question: iPhoto 2nd Library

Hi Gary,

I copied my iPhoto Library onto an external drive with the hopes of creating a second Library on my work MacBook Pro. I open iPhoto on the new machine while holding option and created a new library. But, when i navigate to the external HD to import the library copied from the old machine, it is greyed out.

Any ideas on how I can add that library in?

    I’m not sure what you are trying to do. Are you trying to create a 2nd library, and then have two libraries with different pictures in each? Or, are you trying to move your library to an external drive?
    Either way, you don’t “import” libraries into each other. If you copied the entire library “package” to the external drive, you can simply open that library. No need to create a new one and import things into it.
