    Hello Everyone,

    I recently installed an Optiaby to add a 2nd HD to my macbook pro, and just installed iPhoto today.

    I was wondering what is the "correct" setting to point the iPhoto library to my 2nd HD, instead of the usual home directory which exists on my main HD.

    I dug through the options and the only thing I found in advanced was the, "Copy items to iPhoto library" which I did NOT check since I do not want to have basically 2 sets of the same photo library to waste space.

    So in a nutshell, is there a way to point the iphoto library to my 2nd HD or to any specific location for that matter?

    I think it's as simple as dragging the iphoto library to the new location.
