I am having problems transferring my IPhoto album from my old computer to my new computer

Old computer

• MacbookPro 2.6Ghz Intel Core Duo

• OSX v 10.7.5

• IPhoto v 9.4.2

New Computer

• MacBookPro 2.6GHz Intel Core i7

• OSX v 10.8.2

• IPhoto v 9.4.2


Both computers Pictures albums and IPhoto Libraries permissions are are set to "read and write" for administrator and everyone. File sharing is on in System Preferences.

When I try to copy from the old to the new computer, I get message "Items can’t be copied to “Pictures” because you don’t have permission to read them". I have done the IPhoto "repair permission" on both computers and still cannot copy my IPhoto album from my old to new computer. What now? This is very frustrating :-(

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
