iPhoto Library Manager

4.2.7
26 May 2017

Manage multiple iPhoto libraries and find duplicate photos.

Overview

iPhoto Library Manager allows you to organize your photos among multiple iPhoto libraries, rather than having to store all of your photos in one giant library. You can browse the photos in all your libraries directly from iPhoto Library Manager, without having to open each library in iPhoto just to see its photos, and search across all your libraries to help track down a particular photo.

Features:
  • Multiple iPhoto libraries. iPhoto Library Manager lets easily create libraries to split up your collection, avoiding iPhoto slowdowns.
  • Smarter searching. iPhoto Library Manager lets you search for photos across one library or many. You don't even need to launch iPhoto.
  • Copy photos and metadata. Put everything in its right place by dragging and dropping images from library to library.
  • Nix the dupes. Need to identify and remove duplicate photos across multiple libraries? iPhoto Library Manager does it quickly and easily.
  • Merge libraries. Take entire libraries and merge them together into one, eliminating duplicates in the process.
  • FIx iPhoto corruption. Use iPhoto Library Manager to rebuild your library from scratch while retaining all your iPhoto organization and metadata.

the only feature that I miss is one that we used to have with iPhoto Diet, that is a way to delete originals once you have modified versions of the photo. I hope to see something like this soon in this software that is amazing!!

Just in case you missed it. A iPhotoLibraryManager license entitles you to a registered copy of PowerPhotos 1.1. Pretty awesome dev. I was able to merge three iPhoto libraries into one Photos library with PowerPhotos.

I missed it, because I didn't even know this app was dead. How did you find this out?

Will this app help me regularly sync my iPhoto libraries from one external drive to another? I moved iPhoto to an external drive to free up space on my Mac. I've also backed it up to another drive, so I have two copies of my libraries. I'm probably going to buy Library Manager anyway, because the features sound very useful, but I'm wondering if it will allow me to sync the files on the two drives, without having to back up the whole thing every time? I've never done this external drive stuff (other than my Time Machine backup), so I have no idea how it works :-\

Should this excellent application now be called Photos Library Manager or alternatively cater for both apps?

It looks like Fat Cat Software has created a separate app called "PowerPhotos" specifically for Apple Photos library management (it's currently $19.95 and linked above in the Similar Software section).

Thanks you for your eagle eye. Is it ethical to suggest that as iphoto becomes more and more redundant that the author could offer an upgrade path to PowerPhotos?

I stand corrected and humble. The author does in fact give a free upgrade to paid up iPhoto Library Manager. THANK YOU!

Dear all, my iPhoto library failed to load and it was six months since my last proper back-up (I know, bad habits) and I panicked. Someone recommended iPLM and I gave it a try. First repair efforts were not conclusive and I approached their customer service after checking the FAQ. The team very patiently led me through various steps to see what might be the issue and hey presto a few days later I have my library rebuilt with all 43,000+ photos available again in iPhoto. This is really easy to use software which is actually much more powerful than the simple user interface and straightforward menu options would indicate at first glance. Much kudos to the developers for providing a computing numb-nut like me with a tool that could save my precious family pics and fill the gaps that Apple has left in their software. Many thanks indeed.

Be VERY cautious with this software. I have found that its automatic duplicate matching does not work well. You can easily delete thousands of your photos and not realize it until it is too late. Even using it's most conservative "exact match" settings, it would still flag clearly different photos and movies as being identical and thus select some to be trashed. This tool may be okay for merging libraries, but do not trust its matching algorithms. Duplicate Annihilator seems to work much better at looking for actual duplicates, but it is trickier to use and much slower... but if you value your photos, better safe than sorry. And always back-up your libraries before using either of these tools.

I recently moved to a new Mac and from OSX 10.6 to 10.9. This meant moving to a new version of iPhoto too. I moved my iPhoto library across and although all the data seemed to be in the file I found lots of events and pictures missing in iPhoto. I tried rebuilding the library with iPhoto several times and even deleted and restored my whole library from a backup several times. None of this worked. I then found IPLM and used its rebuild tools - this worked really nicely and managed to restore all the data that was missing and gave me back my library as I expected it to look. I've not used the other features in IPLM yet, but based on this alone I recommend it highly!

My iPhoto library was very chaotic. I was so overwhelmed that I avoided using it. This app is a machete and a scalpel. I actually enjoyed organizing my photos This app simply completes iPhoto. I wasn't going to buy the most recent upgrade, but I decided that Brian is a developer worth supporting. He is earnest, accessible and polite.

I have an older version of iphoto library manager on an old computer (mac book pro) that I want to move to my new imac desktop. Do I need to buy another copy of ip library manager and if so will the iphotolibraries all appear in the new iphoto library manager? Will there be a conflicitng problem because of NEW versions of iphoto library manager? Another question is if I DO NOT want to continue to use the library manager on the new desk top than how do I retrieve all my photos back into iphoto as they are now all catalogued in iphoto library manager? Will I have to copy each library individually?

Since you asked about moving an iPhoto Library from your old MacBook Pro, I assume you did not use the Migration Assistant to copy your account (files & settings) to your new iMac.

If your goal is to move your entire old iPhoto Library to your new iMac, you can use File Sharing to mount the MBP's disk on the iMac and then simply copy the iPhoto Library from the MBP to the iMac.

It's likely iPhoto on the new iMac will have to update the format of the copied iPhoto Library the first time it's opened.

iPhoto Library Manager enters the picture when you want to copy only a portion of an iPhoto Library. For example, I took 56 pictures this afternoon using my wife's iPhone. After she imported the photos into her iPhoto Library, I used iPLM on my Mac to copy her "Last Import" into my iPhoto Library.
