    I am so stupid. I took picture by picture and now, having over 10 GByte of pictures in iphoto.
    I made backups..yes I did, with external HD...but the problem is that in iPhoto everything is nicely sorted, but after transfering to HD and back, this seems to be lost.
    Now, I need to upgrade either the harddisk or even the macbook. But I dont like to loose the nicely ordered pictures, all the albums and so on.
    Anyone has goooood idea?

    iphoto is 6.0.6
    on OS 10.3.9 (oldies but goldies)
    :rolleyes: OS is old, but to upgrade, I have to make a totally new installation for 10.5.
    There is no upgrade from 10.3.9 to 10.5 supported. That means cleaning the HD or better to take a new HD with much more Gbytes and then, storing back the iphoto data (and this is the question, how????).

    I don't know what to tell you. What's nice about the new iPhoto is the entire library is in one package, so you really can't get unorganized like you have.
