Well I've shown you have to split up Events, but what if you want to put them back together or what if you want to take a couple other Events and merge them into one Event? Well you can do that too. iPhoto doesn't only break things apart, it can help you put them back together. So let's take that two day Caribbean vacation that I split up in the previous movie. And let's say you know I looked at it by the day you know having each day have its own Event. And I decided to I really liked all the photos together. I really want them united again into one Event.
Can I do that? Well, yes you can, yes you can. All you have to do is first select both of these separate Events and I'm holding down the Cmd key as I Click the second Event. So I have both of the Events that were previously split. I have them highlighted now. I go up to Events and now I Click Merge Events. So instead of splitting them I'm bringing them together, the little match maker that I'm here. Okay so I'm going to Click Merge Events, now iPhoto is going you know do you really want to do this? Now, you can hide this dialog box if it annoys you, but I would like to have the dialog boxes up here because there are nice little reminders just in case I'm doing something without thinking about it. In this case I definitely want to merge them together. I'm not going to check this box because I want iPhoto to ask me. I want to iPhoto help me stay on my toes, to make sure that I'm doing what I really think I want to do. So I'm not going to check that box. I'm going to go over to Merge, going to Click on Merge, iPhoto is going to go to work and look what it did. It took day two of our Caribbean vacation and it now it has merged that back into and we have a single Event under the title of Caribbean. I Double-Click on it. I open up.
I have all of the thumbnails, all 12 thumbnails from before, I Click back on all Events nice and tidy I have decided that I like having all those shots in one Event and this command, Merge Events, helped me to do that.
