I am not sure where to ask questions about iPhoto. I lost about half of the 10,000 photos that I had, because I changed out my internal hard drive. I just did not understand where the pictures were on the computer. I thought they were in folders someplace on the computer. A few days ago a friend told me that they are all in the iPhoto file. I thought it just was the internal address file for the pictures in the folder someplace. In the last couple of days I have been using iPhoto Library Manager to merge the libraries. Now I am back to almost 12,000 photos. A lot of them are duplicates. Yes, I did mark the box to not merge duplicates. But it still merged a lot of duplicates. Question 1: there must be a way to run a program that will look at the photos and get rid of duplicates. Question 2: How do I delete the Albums, some of them have 4 or 5 instances in the Albums column? Question 3: If this is not the place to ask these questions where do I go? In the past I used the Apple forum, but can no longer locate it, what happened to it? Thanks for any help.
