I have several old iPhoto files (some of which are in the GB size range).
I am under 10.15 (Catalina), and running Photos.
Copying back the iPhoto file(s) in question to my MBP desktop, I have tried the import function (option key then start Photos). This did not work, beyond creating a Photo file of roughly the same size.
The created file cannot open up in Photos. After numerous tries I am at my wits-end…HELP!!
NOTES: I also have VMware Fusion 11.5. I also have Time Machine-saved dates (back several years), but Catalina cannot restore them (I created a post on Catalina on this…lookup my username Merl1n to read it).
Is there a 3rd party program (either on Mac or WinTel platforms) that can read the iPhoto files, then save them to a format that Photos can read?
Some of these files are from Weddings, so yes, they are important.
Thank you in advance.
