How do you point iPhoto to an existing iPhoto library?

    I recently wiped my hard drive and reinstalled everything. iPhoto now sees the library on the internal drive, but the library I've been using the last years (big!) is on an external I use. Is there a process for pointing it to that file? I've searched and googled but haven't found an answer. thanks!

    Try holding down Option when you start iPhoto. In iTunes, at least, this allows you to manually select a library. Perhaps the same thing works for iPhoto?

    Yes. This is how you do it.
