You probably have a SD card or a device which stores photos plugged in your Mac. To prevent Photos from auto-opening, follow these instructions: Connect the iPhone, camera, SD card, etc to the Mac and let Photos app launch itself as usual Under the “Import” tab of Photos app, look in the upper left corner to find the device name, this will indicate ...

First, check whether you have any external devices connected to your mac. If there are no external devices, keep the Photos app in Dock and Right-click -> Options -> Open at login(Uncheck if it's checked).

Yes, it will delete them from iCloud. If you need more space on your computer, you should get an external drive and move the photos onto there, then delete them from your Mac.

Open /Applications/Image Capture.app, select your iPhone, then select your WD as the destination. Then use Image Capture's delete button to erase all the photos from your phone.

If you are using a Mac system, you can use Photos to import the photo from the iPhone to your computer or in an external HD. You need only to specify the location of the Photos Library folders. Then each time you connect the iPhone you can import only the new photos that have never been imported. Otherwise, if you are using a Windows system when you ...

Drag anywhere in the circle to move the selection area & use the dot on the right to resize. X on the left to cancel.

There's meanwhile the iOS app Utiful for moving photos into folders. Utiful is a complementary photo library, so you can freely move photos between the Camera Roll and the Utiful folders. So, unlike the Photos app than only duplicates photos into albums, Utiful makes it finally possible to physically MOVE photos out of the Camera Roll. It's available both ...

Hi I've had the same problem. Plugged my phone in as this is the way I've always done it, kind of like a hard drive. I panicked when there were only 15 images.... turns out I just needed to update my internet explorer... and download an up dated icloud I can now see all my photos woop woop. Hope this helps x

Normally the photos have to be imported to one or the other via drag and drop or the import button. To be on the safe side import some of the photos into the photo application. If they are duplicates you will receive a popup stating that the files are the same

Finding the Library Pictures from photos are usually in a single big archive called Photos Library found in a user's Pictures folder. Go to the root of your hard drive (the root is what you see when you open it, before opening any folders inside it), and then open the following directories: Users > (your user name) > Pictures The library should be ...

Yes, you are not alone. I've been having the same problem, started mid-way through 2014. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but wish I had. I've also gone through multiple rounds with Apple Support only for them to repeatedly tell me that I have no GPS data in 2014 pictures, despite the fact that the vast majority do have GPS data. A few months ago ...

There are many programs that will import photos from a memory card, so you might want to get more information so that people don't have to guess. Image Capture imports images and then once they are verified - deletes only the files. This deletion is easily reversed with run of the mill "camera card software" that recovers deleted files. See ...

It's not entirely clear, but I'll take a guess. If you connect the phone to a computer and no photos are removed when you sync, the most likely setup is the iPhone is using iCloud Photo Library. You would turn that off in the settings app - iCloud. Then once the library is off - choose whether you want the phone to participate in Photo Stream / Photo ...

The clerk at the Verizon store was an idiot. Getting your stuff from the old iPhone to the new is simple but not automatic. Back up your old iPhone to your computer (encrypt the backup so it saves passwords) Plug your new unused iPhone into your computer and when prompted by iTunes restore from backup. Use the backup you just made from your old iPhone. ...

I use the "Save to Photo Album" action in the app Workflow, as an extension.

You can use iCloud Photo Library to transfer these photos. Just import the photos to the Photos application and make sure that iCloud Photo Library is enabled in your iCloud preferences.

Well then, that SUCKS. Unreal, that they couldn't include such a simple function. As a possible solution, I've found that if I want to duplicate or copy a photo in the Camera Roll section, the only way to do it is to send it in an email to myself and then download the photo again. That way you can make as many copies of it as you need.

You can find the frame in your Picture folder under the name Frame_something.tiff. Then you can import that frame in the Photos app like a normal picture.

I have noticed on El Capitan Photos that manually adding faces on individual photos (cmd+i, click circle with + , position manually and resize circle, type person name) then skipping forward one by one (right arrow or slide) will rescan sequential photos. Then going directly to Faces and clicking person face which you were working on will suggest that more ...

You should be able to do this at icloud.com. After you sign in, click photos, then upload at the top. You should then be able to select the photos you want to upload and click choose. Note all the photos must be individually selected: you may not select a folder. You may alternatively drag them to the photos interface on icloud.com. Obviously, it will take ...

You will need an external drive formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled) to use as a Time Machine backup. TM cannot use a NTFS formatted disk as the backup destination. Unfortunately, Time Machine cannot use an NTFS drive as a backup source, either. Time Machine relies on the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system on all drives acted on to do its work. (This ...

I fixed this by moving the photo to a different disk or volume first then importing.

I believe this is a bug in the latest Photos app 1.3, which was released on Dec 8 2015. It only imports pictures that has a filename such as DSCxxxx.JPG or IMG_xxxx.PNG. Also if you select "Import" from the menu and select your microsd card, all folders on that card are grayed out.

As far as I can tell, there isn't an Apple-sanctioned method. The following is a workaround. The original, or "master", picture has information not otherwise accessible through Photos, such as the focus point chosen by an SLR camera. Click on the picture in Photos. Press command i to read its Info. Double-click on the file name then copy it by pressing ...

You can't import photos directly from Facebook in Keynote for iOS, but you can add photos from your Camera Roll. And the Facebook app for iOS lets you save photos to your Camera Roll -- open the photo in Facebook, then select 'Save Photo' from the top right menu. You have to repeat this process for each photo you want to include in the presentation, but ...

Triple-click the home button and choose a password. Choose to deactivate certain areas of the touch screen to prevent them from accessing navigation. Start guided access and hand your phone ...

Apple doesn't list a required/minimum free space, so you'd need to work with Apple support to get that sorted. As for the cache, you've already done all you can. iOS has several low storage warnings it sends to each and every app to clean up cached files and with < 500 MB of free space, I'd wager you've exercised those limits continuously and it's ...
