Much like making an entirely new Photos library in OS X, you’ll need to use the Option key during application launch to be able to migrate an iPhoto library into Photos app.
If you’d like to merge two different libraries, well, at the moment, there is no way to directly perform a merging of an iPhoto library with a Photos library without manually intervening and importing photos on your own. Anyway, I wish I could merge two libraries together in an easy fashion, if I recall Aperture allowed us to do this but neither iPhoto nor Photos does allow merging of multiple photo libraries without, as you say, dragging and dropping the files from the Finder into the Photos app.
If you want to move iPhoto to the new photos you have to number your events from 1 to however many events you have. But who in their right mind would want to move from iPhoto to the complete bit of garbage that is Photos. I thought the Photos app was suppose to replace iPhotos app, why do I still have both apps in my applications folder ? I am having the same issue… times out at about 8% and says i need around 200GB more space. I gave up using iPhoto in favour of creating my own folders and using Darktable, but I am curious about Photos…. This alert usually means there are incorrect permissions for the folder where you are creating a new Photos library. I am wondering if anyone knows how to edit a photo in a different application, like Photoshop, from the new Photos?
I do not see where I can change it to open in a different application or make it automatically do this. Well, I managed to do what was advised above, and managed to open iPhoto through Terminal, and discovered a cleaned-out iPhoto–hundreds of older photos have vanished! TALKED TO APPLE HELP THIS MORNING, AND SEARCHED THE ENTIRE COMPUTER AND THE LOST PHOTOS ARE TRULY LOST NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN. Emily, I am sorry to hear this, but glad you talked to the official Apple Support channel as they can be helpful. I would be appalled if my photos were lost in the process of updating software, that is hard to imagine being an acceptable risk during a simple software update.
I hope you have good backups of your pictures, photos are easily the single most important single piece of data many of us have, it’s memories!
Connect the drive and look at the partition in Disk utility to see what the disk format is. I still haven’t solved the problem importing iPhoto Library to Photos because I only have 4 Gb free on my MacBook.
I wander if I can safely erase one of the libraries of if I have to keep the duplicated libraries forever? With that in mind, here’s the best way to get your existing iPhone to sync to your new computer (or its reformatted hard drive) without losing your contacts or having to remember which apps you had downloaded and finding them again in iTunes.


Now you’ll want to transfer all of your iTunes purchases (including free apps, paid apps, songs, books and movies) from your iPhone to your new computer. In iTunes, go through the tabs for Apps, Music, Movies, TV Shows, Podcasts, Books and Photos, deciding which stuff you want on your iPhone. The contacts on your iPhone should be intact, but if they’re not, for whatever reason, open iDrive Lite and select Restore Contacts. While importing is an option when first setting up the Photos app in OS X, many users many have skipped the initial setup screens and missed that opportunity to import pictures and images into Photos from apps like Aperture and iPhoto. You can do that through the File > Import menu item, or by dragging and dropping images from one library into another using the file system.

We have way too many photos for the standard, date-organized photo stream to be of any value at all. Its moved all my events in iPhoto into Photos but not put them into albums so they are currently mixed up which is really annoying. Flickr offers 1TB (A TERABYTE, free, yes seriously) of free storage for photos, full resolution, no hassle. If by this you mean you figured out how to sort photos in Photos by date in reverse order, I’d love to know how.
My iPhotos library is on an external hard drive, and Photos tries to migrate (via option key) it times out 8% and says it needs 484GB of memory! I’m kind of scared that the actual Photos Library will be saved to this external drive.
Following your instructions I copied my old iPhoto library from a backup to my new Pictures folder.
Desktops are regularly damaged by every conceivableĀ householdĀ assailant, from the inconsiderate roommate to the out-of-control pet. This tutorial, developed using the recommendations of Apple Genius Bar employees who will remain nameless, also addresses the music, movies and books you’ve purchased. If you failed to de-authorize your old computer before it was stolen or otherwise became unavailable, see Apple’s instructions on how to de-authorize your old computers.
To do this, connect your iPhone to your computer with its USB cable, right-click your iPhone (CTRL+click on a Mac) and choose Back Up.
To do this, right-click (CTRL-click on a Mac) your iPhone within iTunes and choose Transfer Purchases.
This may seem odd, because all of this stuff is already on your iPhone, but it’s all part of getting your old iPhone to play nice with your new computer so you can install new stuff and keep your phone backed up in the future, so stick with us here.
Mines not, it was all stored on my own laptop and is now on my iPhone as the only storage of the songs.


This worked liked a dream, by the end of it i still had my contacts, all my notes, calendar entries and my apps. Fortunately, it’s very easy to add an iPhoto library into the Mac Photos app at any time. Being able to directly merge libraries together would be pretty useful, so it’s possible that such a feature could be introduced into future versions of Photos for OS X. It ended up actually being in a file called Photos (which looked like the old Pictures folder in the finder. Plus, to even use it, you have to pay an extra $50 a year to use iCloud Photo Library at any meaningful level of storage. 8% of converting is done for 12 hours and then asked 1,232 Gb of additional space without any options.
Guessing here, but I bet the external drive is probably FAT or NFTS partitioned for Windows compatibility, which OS X can read, but is not the preferred Mac HFS+ format. I’m doing an import on a 111gb iPhoto library on a secondary machine, which I connected to from this machine.
In the meantime, you can always create new libraries and use separate libraries by switching between them by using the Option key on Photos app launch. It imported successfully all pictures newer than 2004, but 2000 older pictures failed to Import.
I spoke to apple support and they went remotely into my computer and search for the library and any photos that would have been in it and couldn’t find anything.
The app only exists in the purchases section of the app store and if I try to update it, it doesn’t work.
Like, I can see in the corner the options I theoretically have, greyed out, but when I click on them absolutely nothing happens at all. Fingers crossed it will actually result in a file that appears on _this_ computer, not _that_ one.
They told me I can try a data recovery program but I don’t even know what to look for.
I didn’t have my photos backed up with time machine or icloud before the update like an idiot.
