I don't want to copy or to have an easier access to the library...I want to change the import location to my other drive...like in iTunes!!Originally posted by alex_ant
You could try moving the iPhoto library and making an alias to the library folder in the place iPhoto is looking for the library folder.
Correct!!!! that's what I mean!!Originally posted by alex_ant
I'm not sure what you mean... do you mean that you've moved the iPhoto application to another drive, but your imported photos still end up in ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library and you want to change that?
It didn't work....I guess because I don't have a ~/Pictures on the other partition Any other thoughts?Originally posted by alex_ant
OK, then that should work. Make a folder called "iPhoto Library" (in fact, call it whatever you want - it will be your new iPhoto Library folder) and put it wherever you want to. Then ctrl+click it and choose "Make Alias." Move the alias to ~/Pictures and rename it "iPhoto Library." Now whenever iPhoto imports new photos, it will still put them in ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library, BUT, that folder is not really a folder - it's an alias that will automatically redirect everything that's placed into it to that other folder you just made. So iPhoto will think that your iPhoto library is in ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library, but it's really not.
