Adding Other Photos to the iPhoto Library
iPhoto can import photo and image files in a variety of formats, making it useful for storing and arranging images other than those that come from your digital camera. For example, you can import photos emailed to you from friends and family.
To add any photo or image on your Mac to your iPhoto library:
- Open iPhoto. The viewing area displays your iPhoto library.
- Find the photo you want to add to your iPhoto Library. Drag the photo into the iPhoto viewing area. The photo becomes a new Event.
- You can do the same with entire folders of photos. Just find a folder of photos on your Mac, and drag it into the iPhoto viewing area.
