ETA - Figured it out!
Apple...you know...I love you, but I HATE YOUR SOFTWARE sometimes. I am trying to get my computer organized and I cannot figure out how to get photographs out of iPhoto.
I am trying to get all high res photos into a folder so I can organize and back up on an external drive. iPhoto won't let me drag-drop and it won't let me export anything (I keep getting an error).
HELP ME PLEASE.
