(2016-01-23) Migrate From Iphoto To Photos

Apple Computer announced mid-2014 that it would be dropping IPhoto (and Aperture), replacing them with Photos.

More recently, The Wife has been using Photos at work, and now wants to migrate our stuff at home, specifically on our IMac. Alas, that Mac is still running MacOs X Mavericks, which doesn't offer Photos. And now that ElCapitan is out, can't get Yosemite. So upgrading to ElCapitan it is.

Copy The Wife's Photos files over to computer.

One thing she seems to do is take a PDF containing many images and import them into Photos. A friend gave her an Automator workflow that does this with IPhoto, but didn't find equivalent for Photos.
