that can keep both of your libraries identical as far a which photos are in them.
Here's how it works:
1 - it compares the databases and/or album.xml files of Libraries A and B.
2 - the files in A that are not in B are imported into B by copying the original files from A into B's Import folder.
3 - it then does the same for B.
4 - metadata is not copied.
5 - it can be password protected to prevent unauthorized use.
It can be used to just copy from A to B and not sync both ways if desired.
It will not copy keywords, albums or other keepsakes. Just photos.
If you need to include the metadata then you will need to purchase and use iPhoto Library Manager. However, you will have to manually select the events or albums to copy from one library to the other.3Ghz iMac, 4G RAM, 1TB HD; MBP 2.16 Ghz 2G RAM; 1.5TB/160GB HDs;, Mac OS X (10.6.5), Canon:i850/8600F, Epson R280; 4G Nano, 30G Video iPod; iPad 3G
