Hello, I am currently in limbo between computers, and I have been so for a little while. I'm planning on buying a new mac sometime next year. In the meantime, I have saved my old mac user profile to an external hard drive. I am an amateur photographer, but I was planning on giving family members various photos as gifts for the holidays. Is there a way for me to access my external HD from a friend's Mac, and retrieve my photos from iPhoto without having to upload all of my data to their computer? If this is possible, what is the risk? Obviously, if I don't own a mac, and I'm trying to give personal photos as gifts, I'm on a budget. Please help!
