    With my new computer... I thought it would be a good idea to finally migrate from iPhoto to Photos...

    I had a iPhoto Lib of about 43 GB.
    When clicking on it, I was offered the option to migrate all pics to Photos, so I did.
    Its extension was subsequently changed into ".migratedphotolibrary". (same size - still 43GB)

    Yet... I see them nowhere in Photos.
    Is this normal?
    Can someone help/advise?

    Thanks!!

    There's an interesting app called PowerPhotos that allows you to have multiple Libraries.

    Photos allows multiple libraries. Just hold down command when starting it.
