my iPhoto has become way too big over time. I'm looking for a way to recompress it, say bringing down the size of the average image from 3 Mb to 1 Mb (just simple JPEG recompress) without losing metadata, albums and so forth.

I tried the App iPhotoSlim, which doesn't work at all anymore with the newer version of iPhoto.

I tried an Automator Script (find all iPhoto pictures bigger than X mb, scale to..) but it locks up and doesn't do anything, since my library is bigger than 60 Gb.

Does a software one click-solution exist or does somebody need to write a tool for that?
