Renaming a library

You can assign any name you wish to each of your libraries in the list by first selecting the library, and then clicking on its name to begin editing it (just like renaming a file in the Finder). Alternately, you can control-click on the library and select “Rename Library” from the contextual menu that pops up. When you first add a library to iPhoto Library Manager, it will be given the same name as the library package has in the Finder. The package name and the name in iPLM are separate though, so you can change one without having to change the other. For example, if you've added a library that belongs to another user, and that library is named simply "iPhoto Library", you can give it a different name in iPLM such as "Bob's Library" without affecting the name of the actual library on disk. If you want to also change the name of the library on disk, just use the "Reveal Library in Finder" item in the File menu and edit the library's name using the Finder.

If a library shows up in red in the list, it means that the folder for that library does not exist on the disk, or the disk the library resides on is not currently available. If the library is kept on another disk, insert or connect the disk, and the library name should change back to black, indicating the library is now available.
