Transferring a Photo Book Project from a Mac Computer to a Data Storage Medium

How can I transfer a photo book project to an external data storage medium?

One of the first things people do when purchasing a new computer is transferring data from their old one to the new one. In order to ensure continued access to all of your self-designed photo books and photo products, you’ll have to transfer your data from your old computer to your new one. Or perhaps you would like to give someone one of your photo book projects so they can help complete it using their own photos? In both cases you’ll need to transfer your photo book project files to an external data storage medium. In order to do this, you’ll need your photo book file(s) from your system directory. This is easiest to find through the ifolor Designer. In the ifolor Designer, your projects are listed on the left-hand side. By right clicking on a selected project, a context menu will be opened.

Note: If using a MacBook without a mouse, simply tap with two fingers simultaneously on the right side of your touchpad to “right click” or simply hold down the control key and click to do the same thing.

In the context menu, choose the option “Show in Finder.” Subsequently, the ifolor Designer folder will be opened where all of your created projects are saved. The project you’ve selected will already be highlighted in blue (*Book Name*.ifolordesigner).

Here, once again, right click on the file to bring up the context menu. Choose the option “Copy *Book Name*.ifolordesigner”. The project you’ve selected will now be saved to your computer’s clipboard and can be transferred to one or multiple data storage mediums.

Note: In order to transfer the project to another Mac, copy your file from the data storage medium to the other Mac (that also has the ifolor Designer installed) in the same folder extension mentioned above. You can find the ifolor Designer folder in the system directory using the same steps as mentioned above and paste the copied project there. Afterwards, you’ll be able to continue working on your project on the other Mac.

The ifolor Designer is structured differently on Mac OS and Windows. That’s why it’s only possible to transfer photo book files to another computer using the same operating system. Thus, it’s only possible to transfer a photo book from Windows to Windows or Mac to Mac.
