I want to partition my iPhoto photos to another hard drive like I do for iTunes. Can I do this? Don't see this. My photos are taking up too much of my computer's hard drive and I have plenty of space on an external.
What is your iPhoto version?
If you want to use an external drive with iPhoto it should be formated MacOS X Extended (Journaled).
If you are running iPhoto '09 or '11 you can simply do the following:
- Quit iPhoto. Back up your iPhoto library.
- Is your iPhoto Library in its default location in the "Pictures" folder? Then drag your iPhoto Library from your "Pictures" folder (or wherever you store it) to your external drive.
- Launch iPhoto with the "options" key hel down and select the new iPhoto library location. Now iPhoto will work with your library on the external drive.
This procedure is described with more detail in this support article:
