    Is there a way to easily find out which photos in my iPhoto library do not exist in any album? I am about to start a project in iMovie that will include photos from this past school year. I do my best to organize the photos I take into albums as soon as I import them, but I want to make sure that there aren't any photos that I have mistakenly not put in an album, lest some good ones not make it in the project. I am using iPhoto '08.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I guess you can use Smart Albums and then just include the date ranges for the past year.
    It will then have all photo's taken within the past year, so you shouldn't miss a thing :)

    However, I have many personal photos in my library as well, and many times I would have personal photos and youth ministry photos in the same import.

    Just create a smart album with the "Album" field.

    "Album" "is not" Album1
    "Album" "is not" Album2
    etc.
