Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Options for backing up your iPhoto library, part of Using iPhoto and Aperture Together.
As we look at our iPhoto Library here, you notice you don't see backup anywhere.…There are no buttons down here.…And if you go through the File menu, you will not see backup. It's not built-in.…It's not part of the iPhoto interface.…Fortunately, iPhoto is running on a Mac, and so we do have a pretty good…alternative and it's called Time Machine.…It's part of the OS.…And what Time Machine allows you to do is connect an external drive, we have one right here.…
Call it out as your Time Machine, as I've done right here and then it will…incrementally and on its own back up your computer.…Now, you may not want your whole computer backed up especially if you're…shooting a lot of photos.…So, you can exclude areas of your backup.…You just call them out here and Time Machine will ignore these directories.…So you could set it up so it's just backing up your Pictures folder.…So, then you turn it on and it takes from there, and that's really what we want.…
We want the computer to remember to do it, not us.…
