    Greetings.

    Does someone know if there is any way to import entire Photos Library into iPhotos?

    I have only found out how to do vice versa so far.

    Do not ask me why, do not tell me which is better, or similar frivolous things, if you can help me, great, if not, refrain from writing anything useless.

    Thank you in advance.

    No, there isn't. You would have to move the photos out of Photos and then import them into iPhoto.

    Photos is the updated app that used to be IPhoto. You can import from iPhoto to Photos but they don’t provide a way to go from a newer app to an older app

    If you don’t store the images in the photos database, you could easily move them out of photos. I set my photos preferences so that import keeps images in folders. That has made my life muuuuch better and I stopped fighting photos. I have scanned images and had to redate pictures so the pictures are properly sorted.
