    Thanks for the tips on Export from iPhoto, Gary. I wonder if you could also explain about the “Export/Current” option.

    Thanks and regards.

      Often, “Original” and “Current” mean the same thing. But if you edit the photo, then Original refers to the original photo in the original format. So, the exact file that was original imported into iPhoto. But Current would contain any edits such as color adjustments or cropping. It may also give you a different type of file if, say, you used RAW format in your camera, but after editing the “Current” version would be a JPEG.

        Much thanks for your quick reply, Gary. I noticed that if I’ve made several edits to the pic, when I export in “Current” file, I end up with several files, i.e., -1, -2, etc. I was a bit confused over this.

        Thanks again, and regards.

    I find this video clearly explains the export functions. I have multiple iphoto Libraries from two computer that I wanted to combine. I called Apple and they said I would have to export the pictures from one library & important them into the Library I want to use as my main Library. I didn’t know which setting to use – now I do, “original”. THANK YOU. This is the second video from the week that is has just the info I’ve been seeking.
