For Photos.app, don't consider the edits necessarily edits. While looking through the file architecture one day, I found that what they're doing is storing the original and simply adding layers of "edits" which are much more like layers of removable filters. The original stays 100% in tact until you export it to a separate file where Photos will process ...

If you haven't already, turn on the sidebar - Option-Command-S - then look towards the top and under Shared, click Activity. Likely there is some activity on a shared album or Photo Stream. It may also be someone inviting you to join a shared album or Photo Stream. (I'm not sure how that would show up in Photos, as I haven't had any invitations since Photos ...

The default behavior is for iCloud Photo Library not to store full-size versions of your photos on your iPhone and iPad: The theory is that only thumbnails are stored on your iPhone/iPad until you decide to view/edit/share the photo, at which point a device-optimized or full-size version of your photo is downloaded from iCloud. (Note: I know a full-size ...

Kind of. The metadata is there and can be read by Photos on the iOS - I'm just not sure that there's a good way of automatically doing it and grouping them as you want. But try this: launch Photos on your phone, hit the search magnifying glass, and start typing someone's name. It'll give you a menu list of all of the people, locations, albums, keywords ...

Share it with the person - then once the album is created, in Photos, there will be an icon with a head in a circle. This is the settings pane for the shared photo album. Full Procedure: Create Shared iCloud Album Select new Shared Album from left side pane in Photos Click head in a circle icon to get an option to turn on the Public Website. Check that ...

The Preview does not lower the image quality, but will fit it in the given parameters. If you use Preview to open a original image: Example: 5.5 MB file size with Dimensions of 3648 × 2736 pixels Now open the Preview Tools - Adjust Size to see the current settings. The default resolution is set to 72 which is standard for web applications. In that ...

The "list of photos" is in the RKMaster table. cd ~/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary/Database/apdb sqlite3 Library.apdb select modelId,fileName,imagePath from RKMaster; Do .schema RKMaster to see the other fields of the table.

Once you are certain you are happy with Photos, & you are certain the Library has migrated successfully, you can delete the old iPhoto app & iPhoto Library if you wish. The Library, as you mentioned, is 'virtual' as both are hard linked to the same files. Deleting either Library will not delete the pictures, only deleting both Libraries will do ...

As Photos is supposed to be included in the 10.10.3 update automatically, I would suspect something may have gone wrong with the OS update itself. In cases like this, I would always try downloading the current combo updater from Apple - currently 10.10.3 from https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1804 but you can always Google for "Apple combo updater [current ...

I practice, the optimize space has zero effect on your photo library on OS X initially. When you enable a system Photos library and opt in to the iCloud Photo storage, it tells the Photos Agent background process to start uploading photos to the cloud. When that initial pass is done, then deduplication in the cloud and download of new photos starts. ...

I believe you are misunderstanding how My Photo Stream works. It is intended as a temporary (up to 30 days or 1000 photos at any given time) mechanism to allow each photo you take to sync to each of your devices - iOS, Mac and Windows. There is also a limit of 1000 photos in My Photo Stream at any given time. As new photos are uploaded, older ones are ...

Yes, you can use Time Machine to restore iPhoto app and also the iPhoto library before the conversion of Photos app. You have to navigate through Time Machine backups and folder via Finder. Now go to Applications and restore the iPhoto.app. After that navigate to the folder containing your iPhoto library and restore it where you want without overwrite ...

What settings do you have under Settings app > iCloud > Photos? I'm assuming you have iCloud Photo Library turned on and Optimize iPhone Storage checked. See this. Regarding the thumbnails not showing up in your GIF app, it's likely due to the way the app reads your photo library and probably hasn't been updated to account for Optimized Storage with iCloud ...

Photos has a "Recently Deleted" album. Whenever a photo is deleted, it goes into that album, where you have 30 days to restore it before it disappears forever. If you trust your daughter to not delete photos from the main library and then discover that album and manually delete the photos, all you'll have to do is check the Recently Deleted album regularly ...

Few ways to do that. I would use the DIY way to make sure it is not deleting unwanted stuff. Sort by name and decide what to delete. Use apps like Duplicate Cleaner For iPhoto Create Automator work flow (it is not worth the time creating and testing it) Use Terminal--do not recommend due to possibility of deleting wrong stuff. Just an example: Open ...

Merge them into one library (iPhoto Library Manager will do this job), then upload them to iCloud by designating the combined library as System Photo Library in Photos' preferences, after opening and converting it with Photos. Depending on upload speed, prepare for a very long wait. And if you then/afterwards want it on your MacBook make a new empty Photos ...

File > Export > Export Unmodified Original... will export a full size image to the folder of your choice.

Depending on how many photos you deleted and the age of your Mac, it may take a moment or two to populate the list. In the meantime, the dialog does show "No Recently Deleted". Also, photos auto delete after 30 days so keep that in mind. (In your original post, you don't specify when you deleted the photos.) I hope this helps.

Delete photos and video synced from iTunes when you can’t access the originals. You can delete photos you synced from iTunes by syncing them with a new folder. These steps will remove all of the previously synced photos from the device. To delete photos that have been synced from a computer that's no longer accessible: Create a folder on the computer ...

I turned iCPL, Photo Stream and iCloud Photo Sharing off in Settings/General/Photos & Camera, rebooted her phone and then turned on all that I had turned off. The phone then showed a spinning gear for about 5 minutes saying "Turning On" and after that I went to Settings/General/Usage/Manage Storage, and saw that her phone regained 2Gb of storage back ...

The size of your local Photos library is not necessarily indicative of the size of the photos stored on iCloud Photo Library. My local library is 83GB (of which 24GB is Masters) and the full-resolution uploads on iCloud Photo Library take up ~25GB. Given that you still have some items to upload, and there could be discrepancies in how space is being ...

No - You don't initially save any space on your Mac if you choose iCloud storage. Yes - if you set "optimize" in Photos preferences, then once you fill your storage with other files, the Photos library will shrink itself. You can choose to store the original size images in the cloud and let the Photos app "optimize" and resample/recompress images to ...

Yes, your iPhone will remove originals that you have not browsed recently, and then re-download them when you next look at them. If you want to learn more about it, lookup a cache. With the new Photos app, the originals are stored in the cloud, and the images on your phone are just a cache. (Except that when you edit a photo in the cache, Apple preserves ...

Photos.app uses non-destructive edits, meaning that yes, essentially a set of instructions for applying edits is stored alongside the original bitmap, as opposed to duplicating the bitmap with the edits applied. Most likely it is stored as metadata within the file as opposed to a separate file. You can revert to the original at any time. You can also ...

Simplest might be to use RCDefaultApp - old but still works on Yosemite & is free. It installs as a Control Panel, called Default Apps. Set Media > Camera to 'Ignore' I actually set everything to Ignore, I prefer to do these things manually.
