iPhoto Library Manager is a useful tool that allows you to organize your photos among multiple iPhoto libraries, find duplicate photos, merge libraries, and more. However, it is not a free software and you need to purchase a license for $29.95 to use all its features. If you are looking for a way to get iPhoto Library Manager for free, here are some options you can try:
If you own a copy of PowerPhotos, you can use your PowerPhotos serial number with iPhoto Library Manager as well. There is no need to purchase a separate license for each program.
If you already own a copy of iPhoto Library Manager 3, you can upgrade to version 4 for a discounted price. When placing your order, you will just need your serial number from iPhoto Library Manager 3 in order to receive the upgrade discount. You can retrieve your serial number in the following ways:
If you have iPhoto Library Manager 3 installed on your Mac already, clicking the \"Purchase Now\" button in the corner of the main iPLM window will let you purchase the upgrade from within the program. If it can find your existing registration on your Mac, you will automatically be presented with the upgrade price.
Alternately, you can find the serial number manually by opening iPLM 3 and selecting the \"Registration\" menu item from the \"iPhoto Library Manager\" menu. The registration window will be displayed, and your serial number can be copied from there.
If you don't have iPLM 3 installed/registered on the Mac you're using right now, the serial number can be found in your order receipt that was sent via e-mail when you placed your original order. If you no longer have that e-mail, you can have it resent by visiting our lost license page[^2^].
If none of the above options work for you, you can still use some of the features of iPhoto Library Manager without a license, such as creating new libraries, searching libraries, rebuilding a library, and importing photos directly into a library (up to 20 photos per import). You can also preview the results of copying albums, events, photos, and merging libraries, but you need to register to actually go through with making the changes to your iPhoto library.
We hope this article has helped you find a way to get iPhoto Library Manager for free or at a lower cost. However, we also encourage you to support the developers of this software by purchasing a license if you find it useful and want to enjoy all its features. You can buy a license online at https://store.fatcatsoftware.com or by clicking the \"Purchase Now\" button in the upper right corner of the main window[^1^].
What are the features of iPhoto Library Manager
iPhoto Library Manager offers a variety of features that can help you manage your photos more efficiently and effectively. Here are some of the main features of iPhoto Library Manager:
Multiple iPhoto libraries. iPhoto Library Manager lets you create multiple iPhoto libraries, instead of having to keep all your photos in a single iPhoto library. This lets you speed up iPhoto by having smaller libraries, archive old photos that you donât use much, or organize photos in different categories or projects. The possibilities are endless!
Smarter searching. iPhoto Library Manager lets you search for photos across one library or many. You don't even need to launch iPhoto. You can also browse the photos in all your libraries directly from iPhoto Library Manager, without having to open each library in iPhoto just to see its photos.
Copy photos and their metadata. If you have an existing library you want to split up into smaller libraries, you can copy photos by drag and drop from one library to another. iPhoto Library Manager will take care of retaining all the photosâ metadata, such as keywords, ratings, faces, and so forth. Event and albums are also reconstructed when copied, and both the edited and original copies of each photo are copied as well.
Find duplicate photos. It can be easy to have multiple copies of the same photo creep into your iPhoto libraries. iPhoto Library Manager lets you search for duplicates in one or more libraries, view them side by side, and take actions on them, such as moving duplicates to the trash, tagging them with keywords, and more. This duplicate analysis is also used when merging libraries and copying photos, to help prevent importing multiple copies of a photo into a library in the first place.
Merge libraries. You can take entire libraries and merge them together into one, eliminating duplicates in the process. This is useful if you want to consolidate your photos into a single library or migrate them to a new Mac.
Fix iPhoto corruption. If your iPhoto library is corrupted and causing iPhoto to hang or crash, you can use iPhoto Library Manager to rebuild your library from scratch while retaining all your iPhoto organization and metadata.
iPhoto Library Manager is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later and Apple iPhoto 8.1.2 or later[^1^]. It is only provided for older Macs that are still running iPhoto instead of Appleâs newer Photos app. If you need to work with Photos libraries, or migrate your iPhoto libraries to Photos, use PowerPhotos instead. aa16f39245
