From iPhoto to iView?

How can I painlessly transfer photos and albums from iPhoto (`08) to iView Media Pro? So far it's proven more complex than I thought...

I have version 3.1.1 of iView Media Pro, and I'm running Leopard. iView has a very straightforward import from iPhoto, I can't figure out how to transfer my dozens of iPhoto "Event" albums. iView just dumps all photos together and ignores that they're in separate albums (events?). I want to keep all of those albums intact. I'd like to transfer the photos and ultimately delete my iPhoto library altogether, of course once my pics are in another location.

Best answer: Will iView import albums? Then you could choose all the photos in each event by clicking in the event area in Photos view then going to file-> new album from selection. I have no idea if that will help you, though, and it would get tedious if you have a ton of events.

Response by poster: MadamM, as far as I can tell, no. iView will only import the pictures themselves. I did import my iPhoto library, but it took photos from some 30-odd albums and jumbled them all together.

Best answer: Hmm. Thats unfortunate; I thought maybe it was having problems dealing with the iPhoto "events", as separate from actual albums. Maybe they aren't separate at all; I don't really know how iPhoto organizes things beyond what I see in the program itself.
