Library Launchers are like aliases for your iPhoto Libraries. Each one is associated with a single Library in Buddy's Library List. Double-click a Launcher icon in the Finder, and iPhoto will instantly launch and open that Library. You can keep Library Launchers on your Desktop, or keep them orgainzed in folders as you see fit. Drag them to your Dock for one-click access to your Libraries at any time.
Library Launchers are fast, easy to create, and operate completely independently of iPhoto Buddy and iPhoto Buddy Menu. And the icon for each Launcher can be customized with a thumbnail image to make it more easily distiguished from other Launchers.
Creating a Library Launcher
To create a Library Launcher, simply select a Library and choose File --> Create Library Launcher... Using the standard Mac OS X save dialog (pictured above), choose a name and location for your Launcher, then click "Save".
If you have "Show Thumbnails" enabled and the Library you've selected has a thumbnail assigned, it will be incorporated into your new Launcher's icon. You can change the incorporated image at any time. Simply drag a photo or other image file from iPhoto, the Finder, or any Mac app that supports image dragging, and drop it on the Luancher's icon.
Library Launchers on the Dock
You can place Launchers for your favorite Libraries on the Dock for instant one-click access to those Libraries. Note that since Launchers are actually small appications, they go on the left side of the Dock. Alternatively, you can organize your Launchers in folders, and place the folders on the Dock. Using custom thumbnail images makes it quick and easy to visually indentify a particular Library.
