You didn't transfer them correctly, and all that actually got transferred were the small images you see, not the originals.
Copy the entire iPhoto Library as a unit from your Pictures folder on one computer to your Pictures folder on the other. Hold down the Option key while you open iPhoto, and choose the library you moved for iPhoto to open. Delete all the images you don't want to have on the new computer, if there are any.
You probably have two iPhoto Libraries in your Pictures folder now, and you may want to rename them for clarity. Go ahead and do so. You can always choose which one to open by holding down the Option key while opening iPhoto. If you want to merge the two libraries into one, download iPhoto Library Manager and use its Merge Libraries... command.

It's strange that all the pictures taken vertically are fine and can be enlarged, only the horizontal ones that I transferred have the X.
When I re-transfer the entire iphoto library from the old computer to the new one, will all the photos be in labeled albums as before or will I have to re-organize them all?

To move an iPhoto Library to a new machine:
Link the two Macs together: there are several ways to do this: Wireless Network,Firewire Target Disk Mode, Ethernet, or even just copy the Library to an external HD and then on to the new machine...
But however you do choose to link the two machines...
Simply copy the iPhoto Library from the Pictures Folder on the old Machine to the Pictures Folder on the new Machine.
Then launch iPhoto. That's it.
This moves photos, events, albums, books, keywords, slideshows and everything else.

I used a Firewire 400 to Firewire 800 cable to transfer the photos from the Old G4 computer to the newer MacBook Pro but nothing happens. The G4 icon does not appear on the MacBook Pro desktop. Any suggestions?

I connected the G4 and MacBook Pro with a firewire cable, held down the T key to put the Macbook Pro into target disk mode but I only see the firewire icon and another icon floating around on the laptop screen, the keyboard on the laptop is inoperable in this mode. How do I transfer the files?

Do you have the Finder's preferences set to display connected hard drives?

All the boxes in the finder's preferences are checked.
