Unfortunately, you can only side-step the issue by clicking the Albums tab > Faces, and select each found face & delete it. You cannot bulk select, so this must be done manually for each face. You should log an enhancement request (or three) at the Photos Feedback page.

There's no way to do this in Photos, at least differently than what you're already doing. Also, just as an aside - if you intend to use iCloud Photo Library and sync with a device, replacing events with albums will very quickly become unmanageable. Apps (outside of the iOS Photos app) do not necessarily sort them by anything useful, and do not respect ...

Open the Photos app, go File -> Import, and navigate to the folder with the photos. If the photos can't be imported using the Import feature in Photos and are in an iPhoto library, you could first open the library with iPhoto, go File -> Export, and export the originals. They could then be imported using the Photos app.

Duplicating it simply duplicates the pointer within the library, it does not actually duplicate the underlying file. This occurs whether or not you have a referenced library. You can test this by using the Edit tools to make a change - such as cropping - then duplicating the image. The duplicated image has a "Revert to Original" button in Edit mode that ...

I think the trick is to drag a copy out to the desktop, otherwise it will make a hard link rather than a copy.

First of all, to remove any confusion, iCloud's My Photo Stream, and iCloud Photo Sharing are two different things, and will behave differently. iCloud Photo Sharing From the FAQ: How many photos and videos can be stored in a shared album? A shared album can hold a maximum of 5000 photos and videos combined. When you reach your limit, you must ...

iCloud Photo Library doesn't support doing that. All your photos have to be on all your devices where you've enabled it and deleting a photo anywhere deletes it everywhere. Unless you have a huge library, it shouldn't be a big issue. My library has 11K photos and 300 videos but only takes a little over 2GB of space on my iPhone. The total space used for ...

I have not yet used Photos, but even in iPhoto I add location data to my photos BEFORE importing into iPhoto. I use ExifTool (free Perl program) to Geotag images from GPS track log files. When travelling I record tracks on my GPS, then download the track log files and use ExifTool to insert location from the track log files based on timestamp.

Plug your iPad into iTunes and verify that there are no folders of photos from your computer that are being synced onto your iPad, it is possible that although you have deleted all of your photos that you took on your phone (i.e. the ones in the camera roll) you could still be syncing a folder of photos from your computer. This link from the Apple website ...

iPhoto is a separate application from Photos (though if you had iPhoto on your dock, the 10.10.3 upgrade replaced its icon with Photos). You can still run it by using Spotlight or going to your Applications folder. When you do run it, it may ask if you actually meant to open it, or if you meant to open Photos - choose the option to continue opening iPhoto. ...

If you open Spotlight and search for iPhoto, you should be able to still open it. Apple has discontinued development on it, however, and you could theoretically run into problems down the road if you keep using it. Apple probably won't ever straight up delete the application from your harddrive, but if you ever reformat, an OS X reinstall of 10.10.3 or later ...

I have found a simple and easy solution to this problem. The FonePaw iOS Transfer software is a helpful tool which can solve your problem about how to transfer iPhone photos to computer. It can help you easily transfer Music, Photos, Videos, Contacts, SMS, etc. from your iOS device to computer or iTunes.

Smart folders — including Faces — on the Mac are (for now) local only. Not only will Faces not sync with iPads or iPhones, they won't sync with other Macs either.

Yes. If on OS X, use Apple's Photos app and save the pictures locally. If on Windows, download iCloud for Windows.

Connect your iPad to your Mac. Open iTunes, select the iPad on the top and on the left you will find a photos menu where you can select what you'd like to sync. Alternatively, you can use iCloud Photos, which would have to be enabled on both your iMac and your iPad, which will then sync photos over the cloud (via your internet connection). However, if you ...

As far as I can tell: All the images are imported. The "Stack Pick" gets the keyword "Stack Pick." (Very unfortunately…) In all other respects, images that were parts of stacks are indistinguishable from images that are not parts of stacks. This means it's not possible to automatically find all images that are parts of stacks, but not the stack pick. (To ...

I thought that Apple had solved the local storage problem and made it simpler, but they seem to have repeated some prior problems of iPhoto Libraries. First, it appears you can indeed delete all your new local Photo Library items. However, when you want to look at them in Photos on Mac again it will re-download them all again. Apple says ...

Also works: Double click on the face album you'd like to change Select Faces on the second row from the top of the app (Caras in Spanish) Right click on the face you'd like to select for the thumbnail and select Make key photo from the pop-up menu.

Right-click on the Faces album you'd like modify, and click Get Info. Double click the small round photo that appears on the fifth row of the info pop-up. All photos in that album will now appear behind this pop-up. Right-click the photo you that you want to use as that Faces album thumbnail, and click Make Key Photo.

I know this may not be exactly what you're looking for, but if you drag the photo to your desktop, it will make a copy there. I find this to be sufficient for most situations where I need to access a photo in the Finder.

Short answer, no. The Libraries are using 'hard links' to the real location of the files, so both appear to be approximately the same size, but each actual photo is only located in one place on your hard drive, with pointers from both Libraries. Deleting either Library will not affect the storage space, only deleting both would actually remove the 50GB of ...

If you have an existing Photos library and you want to import an iPhoto library use File -> Import (shortcut: cmd+shift+i) and select your iPhoto library. If you want a Photos library with just your old iPhoto library, hold alt (option) while starting Photos and select your iPhoto library.

You can keep using it, but not in parallel. Any changes made in one app will not be reflected in the other. Over time, things will diverge more & more. I would use one & stick to it for now. When you finally decide to go over to Photos full-time, then do a resync from your current iPhoto state, by deleting the Photos Library & importing again. ...

If you have Photostream turned on and set it to download Photostream photos, then iPhoto will put them in an Event by month. It will look similar to other photo Events that you've created. iCloud Photo Library sees these as just normal photos and will upload them. Everything in the System Library (which means the default Photos library) will get uploaded, so ...

There is no way to import an Aperture/iPhoto library except start a new Photos library and have it convert from an existing Aperture/iPhoto library. I think the best solution would be to start a new Photos library based on your existing Aperture library. Attach your iPhone to the Mac and wait for it to appear in the sidebar in Photos, then import everything ...

Here's what I know about Photos Version 1.0 (209.52.0): Albums you make in Photos are only sortable by date ascending or manually (drag the photos in the order you wish) Shared Albums are not sortable - last in on the bottom The All Photos album isn't sortable - last in on the bottom (and imports are multi-threaded, so don't expect photos to be arranged in ...

If you enable iCloud Photo Library all your devices stay in sync. So deleting/adding a picture on one device will delete/add it on all others (and the Cloud) as well.

Yes - sharing the photo puts it in a cloud backed "truth" where that image is available for all participants of the album to download and modify their copy, but not to change the original. You'll want to share the edited version and then clean old ones until such time editing directly that shared image is implemented.

Well, for one iPhoto doesn't have iCloud Photo Library implemented into it. There has been a new update to OS X that adds a new photos app, update your Mac using the Mac App Store ad then also update your iPhone to iOS 8.3 ad enable iCloud Photo Library. Everything will be synced: Edits, deletes and additions.

Hold the alt (option) key while starting Photos App. You will be prompted to choose a Library.

From https://github.com/nst/filters: import the photos with Image Capture run $ python filters.py The script will read the .AAE files which store the effect and apply the effect to the matching .JPG image.

There is no Trash any more - instead there is Recently Deleted, same as on the iPhone etc. which will countdown 30 days before final deletion unless purged manually or recovered beforehand. You can access it from the File Menu > Show Recently Deleted. You exit, once finished, by clicking any other category, or if you don't have the Sidebar open, any Header ...

What you are asking specifically to do is not possible. It's also possible there may be a confusion in terms here. Photo Stream is intended to upload from the device which took the picture, in order for it to be distributed to all of your devices. Pictures are only uploaded from the point where you turn the service on, going forward, and are only stored for ...

Photos does not actually move the files or duplicate them when importing from an existing iPhoto or Aperture library. It simply creates hard links to the files in their original location from the new Photos library. See how Photos saves disk space on Apple's site. More on hard links from Ars Technica: A hard link is simply a reference to some data on ...

According to this article by Serenity Caldwell of iMore, there are three ways to share photos to all your family members. Use the "Family" album that is automatically created if you have Family Sharing turned on. Create a shared album. Use the same iCloud account for all family members. Nevertheless, there doesn't seem to be a way to automatically share ...

Yes, it's possible with iTunes 12.1.2 which was released today.

I've found that turning on the sidebar has helped me adjust to Photos much more quickly. Every import dumps photos into the All Photos album as well as the "Last Import" view. You have to create each album by choice and there are now no events that you can control directly. You can choose the "summarize photos" option or uncheck it to get more or less ...

There are multiple absolute and rate limits on iCloud photos. See this article for details: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202299 Currently, if I had to guess, you hit one of the 24 hour limits and need do nothing but wait for the time to pass: Maximum combined number of photos and videos from all contributors per shared album, per hour: 1000 Maximum ...

I can't advise on public beta versions of the app, but the shipping Photos lets you export unmodified originals. You can then use mdls and mdfind to see what the "copy" looks like and where the original was stored. In my case, they are all in ~/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary/Masters/2015/04/08 and such stored by year, month and date for my US locale ...

You can export original photos out of Photos on the Mac and then delete them. At that point, they go into the Recently Deleted album. You can then manage things so you don't exceed your 5 GB allowance. Both iOS and Mac preferences allow you to measure and see the storage allocation. Then you can have a second Photos database on the Mac to store all the ...

Apple often uses custom permissions to prevent users from going inside library files and deleting files that need to be in place since they are thumbnails and/or database files or referenced in database files. Here's an official knowledge base article on the permissions required and steps to fix it. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204484 Reading your ...

First upload the old photos using https://www.icloud.com/#photos Once they are securely uploaded, you can then check that the old photos can safely be deleted since the phone will then re-download them from the cloud.

I'm doing this by using Photos on a Mac. I connect the phone to the computer and Photos lets me import and then delete the originals. Once that is done, the Photos app pushes them up to the iCloud Photo Library and the phone has free space to re-download the photos over time. If you have a PC or don't want to use Photos, you can transfer the photos using ...

I sort by date by selecting Albums at the top of Photos window. Then use the View menu to check Keep Sorted By Date There isn't any way to reverse that currently and I don't see any indication that they'll do anything other than tell you to scroll to the bottom to see the other ordering.

Yes - if you trust Apple to never lose the photos, you can delete all your local copies. Pay attention to which devices have full resolution images and which have "optimized" settings. Also, I've been doing this for iTunes Match for some time. I have only lost a few dozen songs in two years of trusting the cloud. For that reason, I now set alarms every 6 ...

Try this: Remove the camera roll backup from the iCloud (and then add it back again). This is to "recalibrate" the iCloud. Slide the switch from green to white and give it the "ok" to remove photos from the cloud. Next, step out of that menu and then step back into it and re-activate the switch to backup the camera roll to the cloud. Then, run a ...
