Events and Imports from the Finder

When you import photos from the Finder—by dragging their icons into iPhoto, as described on page 14—iPhoto does not split the photos into events. That makes sense when you think about it: if you’re importing a dozen scanned images of photos that are decades old, how would iPhoto know how to divvy them up? But you can easily split them yourself, in a number of ways. Once again, see pages 20 and 21 for the details.
