    I imported all my photos into iPhoto from a NTFS formatted external hard drive before I knew it was a NTFS drive and that the Mac wouldn't be able to write to it. So, I copied them all over to a new external hard drive that is FAT32 format so I can continue to keep my photos together. Now, iPhoto's library thinks they're on the old drive (as far as I know) and I'd like to tell it they're on the new one. How can I do that?

    Just reimport them?

    Delete the current photos from iphoto and drag them back in from the new drive.

    There might be an easier way though...

    aaahhh, okay, I can't delete the library but I can delete the photos. I'll try it.
