    I am getting ready to clear my hard drive of my macbook pro and re-install Leopard. I want to make sure that I know how to re-install all of the necessities such as iPhoto. I'm getting everything worked out, but need some reassurance for iPhoto.

    I will save my HD's contents on my external drive during the process, so I will have the iPhoto library "in tow." Can I simply import the iPhoto Library file from my external? I'm searched the forums a little but didn't find a direct answer. Thanks!

    I found that when I did a clean install of leopard, I just placed the iphoto library in the pictures folder BEFORE opening iphoto and by doing this the library was there when it looked for it on launch. Seamless.

    Sounds pretty harmless, I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks!
