iPhoto Buddy

Version: 1.3 || Release Date: 2007-12-07 || License: Charityware App Owner: jasethehack

iPhoto Buddy is a Mac OS X application that allows you to easily create, manage, and switch between multiple iPhoto Libraries. The advantages of splitting your One Huge Photo Library into multiple, smaller ones include improved iPhoto performance, increased flexibility in organizing your digital photo collection, and a consistency with most other Mac applications that allow their respective data to be stored in as many documents (in this case, "Libraries") as you like.

woah - I didn't know the new iPhoto will select from multiple libraries without this! Thanks for the tip pedaljohnny!

Absolutely an iPhoto dream. Helps me a lot in organizing A LOT of photos.

PAY FOR IT with a DONATION. The developer is getting slammed with bandwidth costs. Yes it's free, but the guy really should charge enough to discourage frivolous downloads.

A must have if your a serious amature photgrapher, this provides nice info about each library before you open it up too. The only thing it lacks is some sort of intigrated iPhoto plugin that will let you easily transfer photos between libraries.

With the newest version of iPhoto you can have multiple libraries without this. Just hold down the Option Key when you click on iPhoto - it'll open up a menu asking you which library to open or if you want to create a new one.
