    In our family we have all photos in the iPhoto library of one user. Unfortunately, someone downloaded numerous pics from the camera into the wrong user.

    What is the best way to move the original, underlying photos from one user to another user on the same iMac ?

    I don't want to maintain these photos in the original iPhoto library under the incorrect user.

    Far from here

    you can export all these pics, then import them in the other iPhoto Library.

    iPhoto : select all the pics / File / Export, select Kind : "Original", choose the destination folder : Macintosh HD / Users / Shared.

    Then import the pics from the other account.

    Once you have checked that the pics are in the right iPhoto Library, you can delete them from the first account.
