Q: I've been doing some image "house cleaning" on my office PC, in preparation for the iMac.
I've backed up about 6,000 images to a network drive.
Now, I can still just access these images from Windows (on the mac), but I thought I would want to pull some of these into iPhoto for all the obvious reasons.
But If I pull 5K images into iPhoto '08, it's gonna try to put these in events and they are just not organized in that manner. And I'd be left with a hell of a lot of sorting/merging/spitting.
What is the best way to import them and make events that make since?
A: Did some testing....
I created this file structure......
I selected the Folder called "Import Test" and it created these events.
This verifies that iPhoto will create an event for each folder it finds. I would hone the organization of the files as they are on the drive now and then just do one massive import and let iPhoto handle the rest.
