I have an existing iPhoto 09 library on one Mac, I have another Mac with a iPhoto 11 library few photos in a, I'd like to move all the existing photos from 10 to 11 but preserve the albums and what not.

Can I do this without destroying what I currently have in 11 or should I just clean out my 11, import from 09 and then re-import the existing photos?

What's the best way to move the iPhoto 09 files, where is all the metadata kept?

Use iPhoto Library Manager. Won't have to clear out 11 first.
