If you didn't get the iPhone back and they stole it with no internet, then you cannot recover it. If you had iCloud setup on your iPhone, then when the robber decides to connect it, the photos should get synced with the cloud, and require an activation lock so he shouldn't be able to use it. If you manage to find phone with find my iPhone, contact the ...

I had this same issue and was able to resolve it by extracting the data from a backup. I used the script (accessible via link) to accomplish this. Note that a Mac would be required - Also note, I am in no way affiliated with the source or content, just a user in the past. Run a phone backup via iTunes while connected to your computer In Finder, go to the ...

I guess this is what you're looking for: Enable iCloud's Family Sharing and iCloud Photo Sharing If you have iCloud's Family Sharing and iCloud Photo Sharing enabled, you'll see a special album called "Family" in the Shared tab of the Photos for OS X app, as well as the Shared section of the Photos app on iPhone and iPad. This album will automatically ...

There are no Events on the Photos.app. You should have all of your old iPhoto Events, but they are Albums now. This answer describes a way of manually replicating some of the Events functionality: (…) you can create an Album from the last imported by selecting all in the Last Imported album and clicking the + icon on the toolbar.

Unless you don't take many photos, replacing the concept of Events with Albums will quickly become unmanageable in Photos. I'd suggest turning on the sidebar and taking a look at the Photos view to see what Apple has replaced it with - an automatically generated stream called Moments. It basically does what auto-split events during import did in iPhoto, ...

Simply make sure the app refresh feature is enabled for Google Photos, enable auto-sync and when you're on wifi AND your phone is plugged in to a power source...it will continue to backup. Main issue people have is not having your iPhone plugged in. :)

To Rebuild the Photos.app Thumbnails: Backup your library before following these instructions. Delete the old thumbnails and various parts from the library: Quit the Photos app. Open Finder, and go to the Photos.app Library, on my system it is called Photos Library and is found in the Pictures folder. Now right click the library and click Show Package ...

If you simply want the entire Masters structure copied to a new drive, then first find your iPhoto or Photos Library file. Default location for both is ~/Pictures/ Right click the Library file & select Show Package Contents - that will expose the 'file' as the folder it really is. The Masters folder should be just inside. You can copy that to ...

No, photos added to albums are references to the original. Deleting the original photo removes the photo from any albums that it has been added to.

IOS 8.x does not prompt for resolution options when using the front facing camera, only the rear facing camera. The front facing camera will usually max out resolution with a file size in KB.

The 3rd party software may scan the raw data for photo files and identify them by whatever signature it may find (JPEG or other). Mac OS X doesn't come with that feature since it naturally assumes the file system will work correctly and it does everything thru the file system. Data recovery software just isn't a standard feature of an operating system. ...

Even when your photos are stored in iCloud, the Photo app will still have a low resolution version of the image on the iPhone so that you can see what photos you have in the cloud. These images are quite small, but will still consume space on your iPhone. If you have selected 'optimise iPhone storage' the app will try to intelligently select photos the be ...

The process for optimizing space is a black box and don't expect it to conform to your expectations and desires. It's going to try to use as much space on your phone as it views as prudent before it starts replacing the original photos with the low-res versions. One action you can take is to turn-off iCloud Photo Library on your phone and let it delete ...

Usually cameras provide settings that will allow you to shoot photos of smaller resolution, so if I wouldn't want images of that resolution, I would first look to change the shooting settings. However when I want to batch resize images in mac, here is some of my techniques: With an Automator Workflow I have created an automator workflow of the following 2 ...

I highly recommend importing your photos at full resolution, on the off chance that you ever want to crop or make a big print or display on a high res screen in the future. With Apple Photos, you can import at full resolution and it will upload the full image to iCloud. Then, under Preferences: iCloud Photo Library select Optimize Mac Storage. Photos will ...

Try using Photo Gallery [part of Windows Essentials] which can download photos very similarly to how iPhoto does it - rather than trying to hack around the raw file structure, which was never meant to be played in.

Presumably you are referring to My Photo Stream, which deletes photos after 30 days or 1000 images, which comes first. You don't say which version of iOS you are running, but the below will work on v8. You can save photos to your device from My Photo Stream by tapping the Share icon (an upward pointing arrow) from any photo, then tapping Save Image. You can ...

On your first question, this is what the Apple My Photo Stream FAQ says: What resolution are My Photo Stream photos? On a Mac or PC, your photos are downloaded and stored in full resolution. On iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV, your photos are delivered in a device-optimized resolution that speeds downloads and saves storage space. ...

If you work hard to clean up your photos after switching to the photos app, or tell iCloud photos to optimize disk usage, then your disk usage will actually go up, because the iPhoto library will still point to the old files, and they will not be deleted from the drive until you delete the old iPhoto library. I was just working on a Macbook Air that had a ...

Launch photos, click on the Photos in the top navbar. On the dropdown, click Preferences > General and click Show in Finder. This will open the library. On top of the show in Finder button, there is the path to where the Library is located in. Update: As Tetsujin said, the Library folder appears as a flat file rather than a directory. So access it by Right ...

See http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/180313/54484 The files were not duplicated, rather additional hard links were created. The data exists once, and each hard link is simply a pointer to that data on the hard drive. Deleting one library will not recover any significant space, because hard links to the same data still exist. Finder shows the size for each ...

iCloud Photo Library puts all your images in the cloud, allowing access from any device you are signed into. It requires enough space on iCloud to store all of your photos. Photo Stream just shares your new photos with your other device, but they aren't actually in the cloud. This doesn't require you to have enough storage space for your photos.

Go into Photos > Albums > recently deleted. Check that isn't full of pictures. You can delete them from there to permanently purge them.
