comment How do I backup my iPhoto library to Dropbox or to an external disk?
Sorry if I came across as aggressive. I was trying to keep the discussion focused, but sorry that it came across as aggressive. I would reformat my hard disc as ext, but then my other non-Mac computers won't be able to write to it. So I guess that's a different discussion entirely. Now, I take your point not to back up iPhoto to FAT32, and thanks for your help.

Thanks. I've accepted this answer. Regarding the point about Dropbox backing up all "normal" files perfectly, it's not that simple. For example, different filesystems and OSs have different limits on the length of a path or the characters allowed in it, or resource forks. It's entirely possible that a sync app like Dropbox supports the least common denominator across all filesystems / OSs. So, it's better to check than make assumptions that later result in corruption. For example, as you said, symlinks are turned into copies.

Because my external hard disc is formatted as FAT32. DMGs are an unnecessary nuisance. Please answer the question actually asked -- Are you saying that backing up to FAT32 risks data loss or library corruption?

comment How do I convert 120FPS video from the iPhone 5s to 60FPS?
iMovie 2013 doesn't let you choose the frame rate to save at. That was part of the "Export using QuickTime" option that was removed. You can see the screenshot at itunes.apple.com/in/app/imovie/id408981434?mt=12&ls=1

What I'm looking for is a 1-minute 120FPS clip to end up as a 2-minute 60FPS clip. Things would happen at half the speed as they do in real life. "Export using QuickTime" has been removed in iMove 10. I doubt iMovie on iOS would work when the Mac version doesn't. If anything, the former is likely to have fewer options.

@bmike thanks for your help. Robuust, let's agree to disagree, and focus on the question itself.

comment I'm prompted on every reboot for a password for a stale iCloud account
Sorry, I seemed to have dropped the ball on this. The problem seems to have disappeared, maybe with the 10.9.1 or .2 updates. I no longer get the prompts, and old@gmail.com is no longer in the plist file. Thanks for your help, Graham.

Sorry for the late reply (I think I missed your comment earlier). Yes, everything is set up correctly there. old@gmail.com is not listed.

@Robuust The iPhone 5s can't shoot video at 60FPS. Besides, I want video that's slowed down twice, as I said. Even if the iPhone could shoot at 60FPS, that video would run at 100% speed, which is not what I'm looking for.

... or by saying that I prefer tools that run ONLY on the command-line, because that implies tools that can be invoked from the command-line AND via a GUI are okay. That's not what I asked.

@Bmike, please don't edit the question in a way that changes the meaning for example, by saying that I'm looking for an app that does this one task well.

comment What's a good long-exposure app for the iPhone?
I agree, Samoth, but it seems that that's the best possible on iOS for now.
