Question: How do I switch from iPhoto to Photos in High Sierra and have all my photos in one album

Photos on iMac 10.13.3

My photos are a bit of a mess and are still in iPhoto.

I have iPhoto library and Aperture library.

How do I tidy them up and bring them up to date with the Photos app.

Thanks

since we only have words to communicate using the correctly is critical - you are speaking of libraries not albums (albums are virtual organizational tools in Aperture, iPhoto and Photos - your photos are stored in libraries


Photos has no ability to merge libraries - Aperture does and iPhoto Library Manager does - so you need to merge the libraries prior to migrating

Do you have Aperture 3.6 installed? And iPhoto 9.6.1?

these versions will run on MacOS 10.13.3 High Sierra. Merging with Aperture 3.6 will give the best results. But make backup copies of the libraries you are trying to merge, and do the merge on a drive with plenty of free storage. aperture may need more than the combined size of the libraries you are merging as additional, temporary storage.

after you made the backups of the leagues you want to merge, repair them and only then try the merging.
