francismir's thread about moving the iTunes folder reminded me that I wanted to move my iPhoto folder to the same external drive I keep my iTunes folder in, but didn't know how. (elbertc taught me how to transfer my iTunes folder successfully, in a older post.) My boot disk is choking under the weight, and I need to keep some space free for reliable operation, and as scratch disk space for various apps. iPhoto is a little more difficult to transfer, as there is no obvious and intuitive method on how to do it. I scrounged the net and found a tip, but it's from Jan 2002, released on the same day iPhoto was released. So I'm loathe to try it - many things have changed since then. Most likely it won't work, but for reference's sake, here are the instructions. Try it at your own risk. To change the default file store location, go to terminal and type: defaults write com.apple.iPhoto RootDirectory /path/to/desired/location To remove the change default: defaults remove com.apple.iPhoto RootDirectory A newer and better way is to try Brian Webster's shareware iPhoto Library Manager, but I'd like to ask if someone's already tried this out, or have better alternatives. I'm afraid to mess up my photos. Thanks.
