Backing up iPhoto libraries with Time Machine

iPhoto libraries are not backed up by Time Machine if iPhoto is running during the back up process.

To ensure Time Machine backs up your iPhoto library, quit iPhoto before Time Machine performs its back up.

You can also manually back up by first quitting iPhoto, then choosing Back Up Now from the Time Machine menu extra.
