    Hi,

    I need some help with transferring an iPhoto Library from the primary Admin account to a new admin account I set up.

    When I say transfer, I don't mean that both of the accounts share the same iPhoto library from the same location.

    Please Help.

    Thanks,

    Ams.

    Copy the iPhoto library file from one account to the other.

    Try it from both directions. That is, try using both user logins, it may work one way and not the other.

    OR, log in from your old account and copy it from there to a neutral location, then log in to your new account and copy it from the neutral location to the new account.
