Pending a Nightmare

Something has dawned on me tonight that I wish had dawned on me before.

I have a nightmarish situation developing that I will have to face soon.

On my Macbook Pro, I have a fairly gigantic iPhoto library consisting of many, many pictures… most of them are duplicated on my home PC, but not all.

My home PC is in the same state – some pictures there, but not on the Macbook. They’re cataloged on Picasa and sorted in a specific folder structure on the disk.

Pending nightmare: merging the two systems together into one iPhoto library when I replace the PC with a Mac.

I can only hope iPhoto’s duplicate detection is good stuff.
