    Have many photos on my Toshiba laptop.
    Would like to transfer them onto my Macbook Pro, and then into iPhoto.

    Is there a reliable, not too technically difficult way to go about this?

    I'd just copy them onto a flash drive, and then you can drag the photos from the flash drive into iPhoto.

    The simplest way is to login to your Toshiba from your Mac or vice-versa over your network. Pull your photographs over to your Mac or push them over from your Toshiba.

    I copied My Pictures to a DVD-R.
    Then imported them to Home in Finder.
    Then dragged & dropped them into OSX's Pictures

    Now, the imported My Pictures folder sits right below the iPhoto Library - but won't drag & drop into iPhoto.
    It looks so close. What went wrong? How can I now get My Pictures into iPhoto?

    In iPhoto, try File->Import to Library

    You should be able to drag & drop the pictures themselves into the right side part of iPhoto, though.

    Can you open and view the pics that you copied to the Mac?

    In many cases I've seen Windows users accidentally burn CDs full of shortcuts to their Windows files without actually copying the files. Are you sure the files are actually on your Mac? If so, they should import into iPhoto no problem.

    Oh, this works!
    Can then begin to Add Folders, and create the hierarchies.

    Thanks so much!
