    Ok I just bought a new MacBook and want to move some of my photos from my iPhoto on my iMac to my MacBook. How can I accomplish this? Would I have to burn my photos from my iMac and move them over to my MacBook?

    Are they both on a wireless network at your house?

    If so, just open your finder window. On the right side of the finder window, drag and drop your photos from your iphoto library to your new MAC.

    I do not see that. I am on the same network. Do I have to enable anything on my iMac under sharing?

    you shouldn't have to enable anything. You should be able to browse the other computers shared folder, without passwords, and such.

    Make you MAC's look like this, and I know it will work.

    Enabling File Sharing did the trick. So now do I just drag my iPhoto library to my MacBooks library

    Yes you can drag the whole library if you want 2 copies of every photo.
