I photo dose not download

I downloaded all my Iphoto library and none of the the pics came up only a folder with the name of my iphoto library… what to do … Please help I might just return this my book live way to confusing

You’re doing it wrong, do NOT move your entire library to the MBL as it can fail 20 minutes after you do so and you’ll lose everything. Just COPY the library to the MBL, but make sure the ORIGINAL files are still in your computer.

it trys to upload all my pics then fails … dont know what to do please help?
