What's the best way to export photos from iPhoto?
There's an "Export" command in the iPhoto menu somewhere.
Under "Share", maybe? I don't have my Powerbook here at work.
This is what it says. I'm exporting to an external harddrive I just bought. 160GB Lacie. There is only 777pictures. They are normal .jpgs. Is there another way, like to click and drag?
What do you want to do with them on the external drive?
Are you wanting to 'backup' your iPhoto library? Or to get the raw image files out?
If you're trying to backup, just copy your iPhoto library from your Pictures file to the LaCie drive by dragging and dropping it.
If it's only those files you want, just select them all and drag them onto your LaCie icon (might be best to create a new folder on there so you have something to drag them into)
I want to keep the raw images.
That is one thing I don't like about Iphoto.. you can't do file system type operations on your pictures.
When I upload photos, I copy them manually to a separate folder with an organized structure. Then I import to iphoto as needed.
iPhoto always keeps a copy of your original. If you want to revert to it, just choose "revert to original" from the "photos" menu.
