iPhoto Library Manager for Mac
Large iPhoto libraries can take a toll on the overall application performance, so breaking down your photos collections into multiple libraries seems to be a good idea. On the other hand, this makes things more complicated when you need to find an image and you do not know the assigned iPhoto library.
iPhoto Library Manager is a Mac OS X application that allows you to manage all your iPhoto libraries via a simple, organized user interface, comes with powerful search capabilities, and allows you to transfer files between libraries.
Navigate all iPhoto libraries through an organized user interface
iPhoto Library Manager comes with a fairly organized design which makes the app intuitive to use. Most functions can be accessed via the main window which is organized in three areas: on the left you can view a list with all detected libraries, the center is reserved for the events list and other smart folders, while the section on the right displays thumbnails for the included photos.
Basic library management tools
In addition, the top toolbar includes buttons for basic functions: create / add / remove library, reveal in Finder, open iPhoto, find duplicates, or merge libraries. The same area allows you to change the view mode and includes a minimalist search bar that can find items across all libraries.
Preserves the images metadata
The images transfer from one library to the other is performed through simple drag and drop actions. However, iPhoto Library Manager makes sure that the copied photos retain all the attached metadata (keywords, ratings, faces, and more).
Great tool for organizing albums into multiple iPhoto libraries
iPhoto Library Manager offers you the possibility to make the most out of iPhoto by helping you to organize your photo albums into smaller libraries. In addition, the app offers simple tools for transferring images between libraries and is also able to perform searches across the entire database.
