    Is there any way to select which photos move to the ATV? I have personal and work photos in iTunes. I'd like to get the truck photos to stop appearing on the HDTV slide shows.

    I see the options on the photos tab. I don't want to mess with events and albums.

    My preference would be to be able to have a folder for work and one for home and then be able to exclude the work folder. I think I am pissing in the wind here but thought I'd look for a wider perspective.

    I guess the only way is to move the work photos out of iPhoto. Anyone see any other option?

    Can you set up two separate libraries in iPhoto? One for home and one for work, I know you can do this in Aperture, you can select which one opens by holding the option key when launching the application.

    However, I sync one folder of favourite pictures in my Aperture library to my :apple:TV, they are the only ones that go across, I set up the folder specially for the :apple:TV. Does iPhoto not work like this? In Aperture the folder contents are just a link to the actual photo, so it doesn't mess up the file structure.

    The sync options in iTunes include:

    - All
    - Events
    - Albums

    Nothing on folders, or libraries. Multiple libraries would be nice. Anyone know if that works in iPhoto?

    I have many events. Maybe Albums can approximate, or even extend across, folders. I just want to do as little as possible to organize this.
