    PC = Windows?
    If that is the case, you need to export the photos you want to view on the Windows computer via drag and drop, meaning you drag the photos (or the event or album you created) from iPhoto to a Finder window.
    The iPhoto Library file is not that easy to read, as it is just a package with lots of folder and folders.

    You should try it first with one Event first to test.
