Moving from iPhoto to Picasa
I moved my 5 gigabytes worth of digital photos from my Mac to my PC tonight. This is usually a pretty easy thing to do, as you just copy your “Originals” folder in the iPhoto directory to it’s new destination. I didn’t care about copying the photo albums from iPhoto, but the problem I ran into was getting to the keywords my wife and I added for every stinking photo. iPhoto uses it’s own proprietary method for storing keywords, so I needed to export them somehow.
Thankfully I found the iphotokeywordutilities app that did the trick for me. It’s a little tricky to get going, as you have to :
2.Open iPhoto and select the photos whose keywords you want to export.
3. You then click on the applescript from the downloaded zip
