Photos has migrated the iPhoto library to the Photos library. Photos no longer reads from or writes to the iPhoto library. You only need to back up the Photos library. Providing you have no referenced masters in the iPhoto library, it's fine to delete. Keep a backup of it for a while in case anything doesn't work. You can copy all your referenced masters ...

Try this. 1. Go to Settings > General > Date & Time Untoggle "Set Automatically" Manually set the date a year or two in the past Open "Photos" Select "Albums" If, like me, you had already cleared out everything from the Camera Roll and "Recently Deleted" folder, you'll smile to see that your "Recently Deleted" folder now has thousands of images back. ...

Move Google drives folder to the new drive In Google Drive's settings, you should be able to select another directory. I'm not completely sure if this works, as I've only done it this way: Sign out of drive Resign-in, and during the setup process, select advanced, and choose the folder location

I think that the 4,372 photos are all of your photos, as opposed to just photos to be synced. In other words, around 500 photos of those photos have already been synced to your iPad.

iCloud Photo Library would achieve a very similar end result. In Photos, click Photos > Preferences, choose the iCloud tab and enable iCloud Photo Library. If you turn on Optimise Storage, iCloud Photo Library will automatically manage the size of your library on your Mac. All of your original photos and videos are stored in iCloud while thumbnails are ...

OS X (10.10) Yosemite's Photos app stores all photos in its own library. You can find this library in your «Pictures» folder (/Users/USERNAME/Pictures/Photos Library). So any image that is imported is stored in that library (unless you have specified otherwise in the Photos app's preferences).  has made a nice «Get started» page you should take a look ...

The Photos App stores your photos in its own library. Check your settings (see screenshot) to be sure they were copied to the library. If so, then they are safe to delete. To get to the Settings, in the Menu bar select Photos > Preferences... [command ⌘+,] If you really want to be sure, move them to a flash drive or other location. Open Photos and see if ...

Unless you're jailbroken, there's no way to recover them if you don't have a backup.

Dragging a picture out of Photos will generate a copy of that picture wherever you drag it - including in the Trash. To completely delete a picture from photos, select it in the All Photos view (not in any Album or Event), then Cmd ⌘ Backspace ← or right click & Delete (1) Photo This will move it to Recently Deleted. To purge it from there, ...

The shortcut to delete files in Finder is usually Cmd+Del. And in other apps it is usually just Del.

Ive noticed this is now solved on my iphone, im not 100% sure how i did it but the 2 notable things i did very recently were : a) rename the iphone from "iphone(3)" to "Sam's iPhone" b) turned off icloud on the iphone then turned in back on Not sure which one solved it, would be good if any one who has this issue does the same and report back to be able ...

Apparently you can stop face recognition by quitting Photos, opening a terminal and typing the following (and press enter): defaults write com.apple.iPhoto PKFaceDetectionEnabled 0 I guess you'll then need to manually delete all the faces it's recognised thus far.

Time created means time transferred to your computer. It is the time when the photo landed to whichever folder you downloaded it to, on your computer. So if you transferred the photo on Monday 1st August 2015, then that is the Date Created shown. Try downloading an mp3 file from the internet to your computer. You will see that the Date Created is the date ...

As Tetsujin said, I agree that we cannot help much with the information provided. But I'd be surprised if they were gone (reasoning at end). However I will make an assumption that you have a photo library in /Users/username/Pictures/Photos in Library.photoslibrary I would right click on the "Photos in Library.photoslibrary" file - select "show package ...

There is no change you can make photos from nothing. You should recover them before transfer them. Also, check iCloud to see if they were there. If you've backed once on iTunes or iCloud, you may find them there.

No. You'd have to set up your iCloud account on their devices as the main account to use for pics, find my iPhone, backups, etc, and then set up their iCloud account as a secondary for email, notes, mail, and iMessage and FaceTime. Unfortunately that's the only way.

I know this is an old question, but it comes up pretty high on search results for this topic. Most of the time, iTunes initiates a secondary backup prior to restoring a backup (presumably for situations just like the question presents.) If you perform an accidental restore: Go to the iTunes preferences from the menu. On Mac, Preferences is in the iTunes ...

While the correct answer above notes that this may save space on Your hard disk but I believe I am finding that it still DOUBLES the space on your backup server... and I believe this includes time machine backups. I have a 1 terabyte OS drive which has 200+GB full. After my upgrade to 10.10 (and photos), I whacked my time machine backup so that I could ...

iCloud Photo Library with "Optimize device storage enabled" will make a copy of your full resolution photos and videos, and will leave a small copy on your device, if storage space is needed. It will not remove them but it will sync changes made in all connected devices (deletes, edits, albums).

The iPhoto library is a package container not really a single file. There are .plist, .db and other files in the package that might get altered differentially when you open via the different accounts. This might contribute to the problems people mentioned. Crazy idea, and I haven't tried it, but it might be better to recreate the package content on the ...

Oh man - even if you could, you are almost sure to mess up one or the other. The beta software will re-write files and database information that will cause the non-beta and older version of photos problems when they read those changed files and data structures. If you really are convinced to mix libraries: Make a backup and test that it works. Keep that ...

After contacting AppleCare, it seemed I had a database error. The problem was forwarded to the iCloud engineers and has now been fixed.

I installed an iOS update and also some Windows updates and it worked. I don't know why, because I restarted my phone already and that didn't help. I didn't have to restart my computer. The phone now appears in 'This PC'.

Have you tried a sync/backup tool like ChronoSync (which I highly recommend)? It can be scheduled to sync to when your external drive is mounted. It also does a great job of handling package files (which is what your iPhoto library is). It's from Econ Technologies and can be trialed for 30 days (http://www.econtechnologies.com/).

Yes - software does have bugs from time to time. It also could be you unintentionally did it or that another device is signed into your iCloud and entered that photo intentionally.

There isn't anyway of moving all of the photos at once, but if you have one photo, you can click the edit button and a message saying "Duplicate and Edit" will show up at the bottom of the screen. If you click on that, the photo will automatically go to the camera roll. You can do like 100 a day and eventually you'll have all. Then, once your done you can ...

I use the following AppleScript to import folders into albums. It only does one folder at a time [1] but even so that's a lot easier than doing it by hand in Photos. [1] Because folders with large numbers of images can be slow to process in Photos and sometimes the script will timeout waiting for Photos to finish. With one folder this is not a problem as it ...

When you choose to export from Photo (File>Export), choose TIFF, 16-bit and you should get a full quality, uncompressed, but edited image out of Photo. This is what the settings in the export dialog box will look like: The reason you haven't found the folder with the edits are that image editing programs such as Photo or Adobe Lightroom perform ...

If you didn't back up the photos, they're gone, sadly. If you connected the iPod to the computer, iTunes may have backed them up without you realizing it, So check there first. If you enabled iPod backups, you can send iPod on any other device and manage the storage to see if the iPod has a backup. If so, you can restore that back up on to pretty much any ...

There is no way (unless a special app exists) to download your iCloud Photo Library (not Photo Stream) to a Windows PC without having to use iCloud's Web Interface (icloud.com in web browser) and suffer at the hands of manually downloading your library.

Under Preferences, choose automatically lock screen option to "Never". Then, open Photos, go under the thumbnails view and let run.

I found a solution that I want to share with this community. CopyTrans Photo, which sells for $20, recognizes which photos belong to which albums and allows me to copy just those photos to my PC. It also does a full backup if I want to do that. As others have already stated, "albums" in iPhones are just entries in a database that points image files to an ...

I had a similar issue, which seemed like it had something to do with access permissions. Try the following: Pick a random photo for which "Show Referenced File in Finder" does nothing. Select it and hit space to view it. Photos will pop up a dialog saying that it can't access some files outside the Photos library and will ask you to select a certain folder ...

this solution worked for me without any difficulty in Aperture 3.6 In the Inspector, click the Library Tab and scroll down to the Projects heading (not the Projects that are situated directly under the Library title - in here you only get the export Library option that you encountered). Highlight the Projects that you want to export. You'll see all the ...

Try using Video Slimmer app in app store.. This app lets you to shrink video files filmed on your iOS device to smaller file size while keeping good video quality. With just several taps, you will greatly save the precious space on iPhone iPad or iPod.

There's likely a 3rd-party alternative camera app for that, just search the App Store. There is no way to make your iPhone shoot lower res images short of Jailbreaking it (which I DON'T recommend).

Importing without coping to the library doesn't give Photos.app ownership of the file. So to be safe you can't delete it directly from the application. You can right-click on the picture and select Show related file in Finder and delete it from there. Unfortunately, it will not delete it from the photo library so you have to do it by yourself.


1

When Photos.app starts, hold an Option Key ( ⌥ ). You will get a libraries manager. When you select Create New... and save library, Photos will open a empty window and it is ready to use.


2

Deleting the App doesn't delete the Library, you need to do that separately. Default location is at: ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library Note: The "~" (tilde), in the pathname above, is your Home Folder.

I'll try to answer your inquiries based on my experience. In iOS, to be able to save an image from the Photo Stream (PS), you need to tap an image and select the Save Image action to make a copy of that image to the Camera Roll. That may be a bug in iOS/OS X, I'm not sure, but that also happens to me especially with the most recent photos I took. But ...

To do so, you can create Smart Albums These can be set to filter based on filetype. You can set as many of these as you wish, and even modify existing ones. In Photos go to File > New Smart Album or ⌘+⌥+N Then you can set your filter criteria in several ways. See the attached screenshot illustrating a PNG filter. UPDATE: If you choose to use the ...

This is another approach: Open Photos and go to the photo you want. Right mouse click and choose Get info. Here you can copy the photo's file name Click on the Magnifying glass icon on the top right corner of the screen. Paste the photo file name there. Maybe you have to wait some seconds, then Double click "Show All in Finder" in the search dialog.

HAHA!! I figured it out! You have an album titled "Recently Deleted." Once you delete a photo or video, it is saved here for up to 40 days (usually 30). On your device, go to Photos--->Albums--->Recently Deleted. Then, tap "select," select each photo (annoying...), tap "Delete" and confirm. Done! http://help.apple.com/icloud/?lang=en-us#/mm6aa648d5aa

Screen captures do not have a camera on the metadata. You can use that to weed out most of the pictures as all pics taken with the integrated camera will state the iPhone model (and even if taken with the front or rear camera). Second, as @bjbk said, all screen captures are .pngs. I tried a text filter for each resolution, including one for landscape and ...
