I have a very large iPhoto library and a part of it is old and doesn't have to be modified. To distinguish this part from my whole iPhoto library I will name it "2000_archive". The version of iPhoto I'm using today is iPhoto ’11.
I would like to access and protect this 2000_archive. I want to avoid any modification I could made and wouldn't detect immediatly so as to undo it. This is the kind of event which happens regularly on huge documents which don't provide a clear modification status. iPhoto doesn't provide such a clear modification status.
My iPhoto library is already backed up by Time Machine and some folders of it are already exported on DVD.
The key function I'm looking after is a library I can select occasionally and open but on which any modification will be blocked. I want a read only separated iPhoto library. Hence the term of archive here.
- How may I make a separate iPhoto library of this 2000_archive (I'm here talking of a few hundreds folders)?
- How may I make a read only archive of this separate iPhoto library 2000_archive?
