I have 17.000 pics and want to migrate from iPhoto to LR. Some of these, have titles I assigned in iPhoto. Others in events, whose names I would love to keep. This information is really important to me, as it contains lot of travel info from the origins of the pics.
I already tried import with the plug in, folders and albums are neatly converted to collections.
Doesn't anybody have an idea, what to do, maybe before hand in iPhoto to keep the information?
Any hint is highly appreciated!
I had assumed that iPhoto metadata got imported as with the Aperture info panel which corresponds to IPTC data fields. The link below gives further information.
Sorry, 99jon, for the truly late reaction. Unfortunately, that does't work. iPhoto deals differently with metadata than Aperture.
