I am trying to transfer one iPhoto library from my MacBook to desktop iMac to create more harddrive space on laptop.   I successfully transferred photos to external harddrive.  When I plug harddrive in to iMac, the iPhoto icon appears and the pictures are there, but I am not able to select it in order to import the library.  I was able to drag the icon to the desktop and the pictures are there - but when I try to dump in to iPhoto - it only gives me the option to launch and replace a new library.  I am seeking to combine the two libraries.  I would be so grateful for any guidance this community has!  Many thanks in advance!
