Is there any way to import iphoto "albums" from my old computer to my new one? Oldmac is running Iphoto5 , new one running Iphoto8.

I have been able to transfer photos, but not albums. I have app 10 000 photosin IPHOTO, currently on an external harddrive and when I import the library into iphoto8, they are sorted into events, by date and are duplicated,sometimes triplicated, with originals all over the place. But no albums...

I'm quite frusterated and hope someone can help, thanks.

If you just transfer the whole iPhoto library to the new one everything should be preserved. There is also an 'album data' XML file which you could transfer by itself if you don't want to rebuild the whole library.
