Note that iCloud.com/#photos is not the same thing as My Photo Stream, and photos that were only in My Photo Stream will not appear in iCloud.com/#photos. (Unless you turn on iCloud Photo Library and sync a Mac Photos library that contains the photos downloaded from My Photo Stream, which would then be uploaded to iCloud Photo Library.) So even though the ...

You can check if the photos are "safe" in iCloud if you log on to iCloud.com ... at least you will then know if it's OK to restore the iPhone without losing your photos

The iPhone has GPS. This doesn't require Wi-Fi or cellular towers and isn't disabled when you turn on Airplane mode.

The app store has some pretty good options for file browsing apps. I use FileBrowser for example. FileBrowser description. FileBrowser is the original and best file manager and viewer for iOS. FileBrowser can view, copy, move, upload, download, stream, and manage files between computers, servers, NAS drives and cloud storage in any direction. You ...

What was created in iPhoto was an Event for each month's worth of Photo Stream photos. Since the concept of Events no longer exists in Photos, that automatic creation has gone away too. You could manually replace them with Smart Albums. There are a couple of different ways you could approach it: Create a new Smart Album for each month. This can be done ...

The answer appears to be "Yes, it can". After a month of the folder not being touched I finally deleted it and it hasn't caused any issue whatsoever. However, if any device using your iCloud account is still using Photo Stream (for whatever reason), you may still need the folder.

In addition to connecting to iTunes (which is a great idea to back things up since when you run out of space, bad things can happen) you can log into iCloud.com and verify that your cloud storage and deleted items match what the device is telling you. If there are items to come down from the cloud, you may have to clean it up there if the device has no room ...

The title of your question asks how to export photos in full quality, whereas your last sentence asks how to recover your original photo. @JaimeSantaCruz is correct that you can Export Unmodified Original, which will give you a full-quality copy of your original. However, if you've made edits to the photo, they will be lost with that command. What I would ...

Are you trying to open the photo library directly from the Time Machine volume? You won't have edit access to anything on that volume. You should copy the entire library file over to ~/Pictures, hold down Option when launching Photos.app and select the library file in ~/Pictures.

I really don't think this is true. Because i am pretty sure I did this and lost my photos and had to find them in a backup. I am not going to test again with my main library just yet, but looking in package contents in my new Photos library, it is clear that there are the same folders but in the new library (for old photos anyway) those folders are empty. ...

After about 2 weeks of working with the Photos app on a Macbook Air 128GB, with a much larger photos library, I've noticed the following things. There appears to be no fixed target size for the actual Photos library - instead its a target "free" space on my Macbook Air. Currently, the Mac Optimisation appears to target roughly 10% free space on my Macbook ...

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.

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.

If you have access to Photoshop CS5 or newer, you might try one of the selecting tools to select the text and use Content Aware Fill and/or the Clone Stamp Tool to remove the text. (This does not make your text editable, but the text can still be removed) One way is to sample the text color with the Eyedropper Tool. Use Select > Color Range. Use Select > ...

I am having a similar problem. All of my iOS photos have synced up to Photos on the Mac, but photos that I've added on the Mac show up blank in iOS. When I click on a photo, a blank comes up, with a progress clock in the lower right corner. However, that seems to stall at 25%. Even when I go into Edit mode, it appears to start downloading and appears to ...

You can simply drag single Photos from the Photos app into the desired folder or there is an Export option for albums in the File menu. Select album on the top bar (cmd+3) and mark the desired album and go to File -> Export (shift+cmd+E).

That is one Problem with Preview that needs fixing by Apple. It will unfortunately without warring overwrite your original. There is no way to restore the original.

When using lineart, logos, etc from a vector file (not too complex), it is possible to use vector graphics in Powerpoint. Enlarge it 400% in illustrator and export it as a .WMF file. This allso works for other office applications.

There is no confirmed limit, according to Apple. You can add large libraries, and the only limit is your hard disk free space.

My solution is in the last paragraph, I wrote the other paragraphs because I believe the things I tried could work for others. Im not an Apple snob or have 500 hits - just a person who buys thousands of dollars of Apple products.

Assuming you have IOS 8.x... Go to Photos -> Albums -> recently deleted. Tap on Select (upper right) then "Delete All" lower left. That should do it. My experience is that the space used will take a while to update to reflect the removed images.

Actually I solved the problem by realizing that Powerpoint is really bad in compressing photos. I tried to insert a 20MB jpeg and it looked awful in my Powerpoint Mac 2011. I solved it by adjusting the resolution with Photoshop and then pasted it - the results are a huge improvement!

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 ...

I checked Apple support and find that the photos you upload to My Photo Stream are stored in iCloud for 30 days to give your devices plenty of time to connect and download them. If you pass the time, your photo may be deleted.

Photostream only stores photos for 30 days. Could you have left them beyond that limit? https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT202299

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

The Preview does not lower the image quality, but will fit it in the given parameters.

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 ...

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 ...

No, indeed. Photos that you share are not shared [sic], but are copied and then shared, despite clear indications in the user interface that would lead to the conclusion that they are. Furthermore, as a consequence, albums are not shared at all: instead the individual photos in the album at the time it is shared are copied. Moreover, if you add photos to ...

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.

That's an annoying bug. You could try to work around the bug by building an Automator recipe that takes your images on at a time and loads them each into Photos.app.

The thumbnails should all be (eventually) downloaded, but with that many photos, it may take some time. Panning over them simply tells the system to hurry up and retrieve the ones you're trying to look at. On the Photos (left) tab, zoom all the way in and scroll all the way to the bottom, and it should give you the current sync status. "XX,XXX Photos, 15 ...

Can you confirm that all of your photos and videos have uploaded to the cloud?
