Google Photos has an excellent tool for this: the Google Photos desktop uploader. Once you upload all the photos from the SD card to your Mac Photos app, drag them all to a folder on your desktop, and, with the uploader installed, your photos will automatically upload to Google Photos. This uploader tool made by Google is described as a tool to Auto ...

I managed to easily download only a single iPhone photo album onto my mac. Open the album on the iPhone, choose "Select", then "Select All". Choose the box with the up arrow (export), then choose "AirDrop". If your Mac is plugged in via USB or on the same Wifi it should show up. Choose the computer, and a notification should pop-up on your computer. ...

There are actually multiple levels of download. Even when you view an image, a device-optimized version is retrieved. Only when you Edit or Share a photo is it fully downloaded from iCloud (possibly when you zoom in all the way, also). With that being said, you can’t bulk-Edit; however, you can bulk-Share. Here are the steps that worked for me: Go into ...

I'm not sure this can be done directly, as Apple has created this mode in order to save space and not to leave Originals on the interested device in order to take a quick look at those even when Offline. But there's a way around you may find very useful and suitable for your specific case, and not only. iXpand flash drive Earlier this year, San Disk and ...

It's a bit complex but here's a way. How to Throttle iCloud Photo Library Uploads

I am certainly no expert here but what I do after taking a picture I go back and view it of corse. If I want to make it full screen I zoom in or stretch it only enough to fill the whole screen. I center it the way I want and then I simply take a screen shot by pressing the home key and off button at the same time. When you pull the screen shot back up it ...

There are a variety of ambiguities in this question, but ultimately - your best bet is to take the steps necessary to mount the camera as an external drive. Some cameras are built to present themselves as external drives, but not all. When you connect your camera, first check Finder and see if the camera is appearing as a drive. If you can't find it, ...

iPhoto and Photos both use libraries. These libraries, named by default 'iPhoto Library.photolibrary' and 'Photos Library.photoslibrary' (see pluralisation in package extension) are stored by default in ~/Photos (the Photos folder in your home folder).

If your girlfriend likes using Photos.app, she can still do that but import her pics elsewhere. You can do this by going to the "Photos" menu and choosing "Preferences". There's an option to store photos in the Library and it's checked by default: If you search the help for "Change where Photos stores your files", it says: When you import photos and ...

What do you mean by "import", if you're not copying to the special internal organization? Just copy the files from the camera media. If you're using Photoshop, maybe you can consider using Lightroom too. It can "import" with some flexibility in where you store the files. Normally I just copy files, no special import process, to put he files where I want ...

You can use Dropbox, (free version is Ok, you get 2GB free could storage) when you sign up and install it on your mac, every time you connect any device (including iPhone, iPad, digital cameras, etc..) it comes up with a window asking if you want to transfer the images stored in that device to your Dropbox folder (which is in your computer, but also backed ...

You can use Image Capture in the /Applications folder. This allows you to select a normal folder and import photos to that location, which can be accessed in Finder or Photoshop as usual. In addition, this application allows you to setup the preferred application to open when connecting your camera (or smartphone, ...). There you can select Image Capture ...

OK I found out the problem! You have to have a photo on the phone for it to even appear in Windows Explorer! I was testing out a new cable to see if it worked and the phone didn't show up (but did iTunes sync). So I switched back to the old cable I knew worked and it still wouldn't show up and got me worried! I took a screenshot to generate a photo and now ...

Yes. This is a good way to clear out space in iCloud.They don't delete immediately, you can recover recently deleted files for a while, but they do disappear from connected devices and will eventually be deleted - any copies you export onto your computer (outside of the Photos app) will not be affected. I back up older photos from the Photos app, by ...

I downloaded the icloud manager app: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204283. Then in bottom right control panel on Windows (where the printer, volume, and wifi icons are located) clicked on the icloud icon then download photos then you can select ALL or by year. This method doesn't prompt a thousand save as windows like doing it via icloud.com does.

You should download "OneDrive" on your iPhone. Then on your OneDrive account you set your iPhone to upload all pictures on Photos. All your pictures will be uploaded. Then you open https://onedrive.live.com by your Windows 10. It can work with iCloud as well, but I like OneDrive more. That's how I duplicate my pictures on iPhone to Windows 10. Good luck!

Old topic, but I just found your question when I ran into the same problem. It is possible: from the 'Photos' or 'All Photos' view, select all the photos/events you want to, and then instead of using the '+' at the right-hand side of an event title, use the '+' which is in the app title bar, next to the 'Share' and 'Search' box.

@grgarside: El Capitan and later won't let you just rm the default apps, they're protected. – grgarside 11 mins ago That's because of El Capitan's System Integrity Protection System (SIPS), which prevents even Root from making (potentially harmful) changes to the system. A fine idea in principle, apart from the fact that it stops you doing a lot of things ...

NOTE: the following only works if System Integrity Protection (SIP) is disabled. Follow the steps here to disable SIP. You can delete them, but this isn't recommended - and they'll get restored with the next update. Finder will inform you that "(application).app is required for OS X and should not be deleted". If you're insistent on deletion, run the ...

Yes, that is the case. When you edit a JPEG photo and save the result as a JPEG image, it will be re-encoded and thus you'll suffer some loss of quality. The only way to avoid that is to save the photo in a lossless format (for example RAW). You cannot do that with the built-in Photos app. You can find other apps that allow you to save both the original ...
