I am creating a portfolio in iphoto. It is getting quite large and I am concerned it fitting onto an ipad. Is there a way to create a library for personal photos and another for professional images?
Yes, you can use a software called iphoto buddy to do it.
With it, you can create and manage multiple libraries.
If you hold down the option key while launching iPhoto you'll be given the choice to create a new Library in a new location or to select which one of your existing Librariers you wish to open.
Launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and select "Create New..." in the window that comes up:
Also, you don't have to send all of a Library to an iPad. You can opt to just share some albums...
