    I have pictures that are in the incorrect "Events."

    Since iPhoto '11 auto-creates Events based on the time period the photos were taken, it is inevitable to get some into an Event you don't want them in. I might take 15 pictures in the morning of the sunrise, then take some pictures at the baseball game, and then another of something that catches my eye sometime during the day, and then some more photos at sunset.

    I want the sunrise/sunset/sky pics in one event, the ball game in another, and the solo picture in no event, or an event called "Misc."

    If iPhoto '11 lumps them all into one Sunrise Event, how do I go about separating them out?

    Create new events by taking iPhoto 11 out of full screen mode and select "create event" from Event menu.

    To move pictures ... Control-click on picture or selected pictures ... select Copy. Then go to event of choice and Control-click and select Paste.

    To combine events ... just drag one even on top of the other event.
