    I have installed a SSD drive that only has 150GB capacity. I have all my photos stored on an external 2TB HD. Can I run iPhoto from that drive?

    Thanks for the help.

    Create Referenced library.

    you can reference the picture from External harddrive to the iphoto. In iphoto you can only see a snapshot of all images but you cannot edit it or view it . You need to connect it to your external HDD to do anything with those pictures.
