    can this be done? I have photos of my artwork that I have on my iphone, & now want to put on my ipad.

    I also had this library originally named; my artwork for iphone 3gs, but since I wanted it on my ipad as well, I renamed the library, my artwork for devices.

    when I opened the library in iphoto, & tried to open each photo in full screen, a pop up came on the screen saying it cant find the photo, & gives me the option to locate the photo, I go to the folder on my hard drive where the photo is, & reunite it in iphoto. Did this happen because I renamed my iphoto library? & if so, how do I get all the photos found again?

    When you launch iPhoto, press and hold the OPTION key. You will get the option to select a new library. Direct it to the renamed one.
