    Sorry for the questions..

    Ok, so I moved all my photos from the PC to the Mac, and now I want to move them into iPhoto. So I move all the folders I have nice and organized into the iPhoto Album Directory, but they wont come up in iPhoto.

    From looking at the directory you need to have a SAMPLEALBUM-DATA file for it to appear in the iPhoto program. Is there any solution to this or do I have to manually add everything (already did that for iTunes which took freeking forever)

    Thanks again!

    You'll have to import them separately into iPhoto.

    You should probably do multiple imports into iPhoto. Each import comes in as a "roll".

    A good idea would be to import a few pictures at first. Then you can play around with it to see if you like it. Rather than doing the tedious work of importing 1000s of photos only to find out that you don't like iPhoto.
