There is not really a way to sort a shared album by date taken. I don't think that will be a feature because Apple is trying to make it like Instagram where the posts pop up in the order they were shared and not the date they were taken.

You could also try picturescue: http://picturescueapp.com/, which is a bit cheaper and works well. OR you can just restore your backup to a friend's iphone or a new iphone if you have one. (But if you use a friend's make sure you back it up first)

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.

Porting this to a community wiki answer so it doesn't remain hanging, as I've seen similar questions asked a couple of times recently Some third-party messaging applications copy photos to the Camera Roll after receiving them, such as WhatsApp. Assuming you received it in a third-party application, there may be a bug in that application causing it to be ...

I solved this problem by looking for all the filenames prefixed with "Copy - " and deleting them.

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. ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

From the discussion forums at Apple: Are you still able to use iPhoto on your iPhoto Library? If so run the first aid on that library with iPhoto and apply Options #1, Repair Library Permissions, #2 - Rebuild Thumbnails and #4 - Rebuild Library Database. Then open that "fixed" library with Photos to create a new Photos library. See if that will ...

Simply rotate all your photo's to the right using ⌥+⌘+R and then to the left using ⌘+R. This could take some time, but it isn't as hard as exporting and importing the whole library.

I just did this: FIRST, create a folder on your desktop and name it (mine is "G+ Pix"). You will need this folder for step #5. 1) Open Google+ Photos to see your list of pix. Select the group of pictures you want to export by clicking on the check mark in the upper left hand corner of the pic. Using the "shift" key on your keyboard helps you do multiple ...

According to this YouTube screencast, the error only appears when copying multiple folders at once. If you just copy one folder at a time, the error is avoided. It's a bit painful if you have many folders though.

I'm not sure either iPhoto or Photos would be keen on you deleting pictures from inside the app folder framework. They both expect to be 'in charge' of the editing & deleting process. I think, long term it may be better, if you want your 'originals' in a single format in each of the 3 locations to use Image Capture to do the import, to a distinct 4th ...

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 ...

Try changing the shape of the thumbnails. There is an option "Display Square Thumbnails in Split view" under the View menu option. I can't be sure, but this may cause the app to redraw the thumbnails, and may resolve your problem (lets hope so anyway).

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. ...

Have you tried removing those photos from recently deleted? Are they photos that are stored on your phone locally, or in your iCloud photo stream? Your question makes it somewhat unclear. One thing I would suggest is leaving feedback, which is important and will help Apple improve its software.

I manage it by not self-imposing a (IMO pretty ridiculously low) size limit on how much space they take up. Storage is cheap - well, as cheap as it's ever been, anyway, even if not "cheap" as in $1 McChickens cheap. Buy a decent 4 TB external hard drive and save photos nearly forever. At 64 GB per 6 months, you're looking at over a quarter of a century ...

You could upgrade your iCloud storage and utilize the iCloud Photo Library, this can be used/setup by checking the respective box in Preferences. The other option would be to have your Photos library on an external hard drive. Then when launching Photos, hold the option key, choose other library on the bottom left, and you can point Photos to look at the ...

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 ...

I found none of the above to work. The best solution I found was to hold your finger down in the year view to scrub through the pictures. Where you scrub it triggers the thumbnails to download. Not great, but it works.

You can enable iCloud Photo Sharing and create shared albums; this is free and you don't have to upload your whole library (which in this case will probably force you to pay for an upgraded iCloud plan). How to set it up (from the iCloud Photo Sharing FAQ): Mac: Choose Apple menu > System Preferences. Click iCloud, then select Photos. ...

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 ...

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

The optimization feature is supposed to free up space automatically by keeping low res versions of your pictures.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

So I was experiencing the same issue and turning off background app refresh in for Google Photos under the settings app and then turning it back on seemed to do the trick for me.

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.

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.

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 know this seems a bit stupid. I think it was because I was a bit impatient. My upload speed is 0.71Mb/s (that means it will take 3 hours 43 minutes to upload!). It has only uploaded 170MB/1.1GB. I have however had my computer asleep for a few hours though. Even though I have posted this I would still like to know how to force upload incase I need to in ...

So after some time (learning python on how to monitor and plot library size and disk usage) this is what I have observed regarding my first question. As written by @will-mallard and @bmike the optimizer targes for percentage free disk space. As shown below: the size of the picture library increases and decreases together with my disk usage.

My Photos library has about 60,000 photos and about 1,600 movies. The total size is about 560GB. About 30,000 photos are uploaded to iCloud and can be browsed by all my devices and desktop machines. So far no problems and interaction is fluid. With old iPhotos it was annoyingly slow to view the library in its entirety and had to split it into yearly ...

So I found out that photo albums that you create on your iPhone DO NOT SYNC back to your desktop computer. Mental note: Make all albums on the COMPUTER FIRST and then sync them from the computer to the iPhone. So stupid.

Zoom out until you're in "years" view and disable "Summarize Photos" under Preferences > Photos & Camera. That will help, now you just have to scroll through your photos once and they will be downloaded.

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, ...

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.

Here is how you can sync from Dropbox (or a directory of your choosing) into Photos, when new photos are added: Open Automator, and create a "Folder Action" On the top where it says "Folder Action receives files and folders added to" select "Choose folder", then "Other", and select your Dropbox folder (or whichever directory contains your photos) Add a ...

I think the problems with the Family Share album is that it is limited to 5000 photos...(which my family album already exceeds)

A more simple way is using AirDrop. You have to select every photo manually but you can extract them without special software.

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 ...
