My Photos Library is Inactive when I try to open an image from external drive, as it is on the image below.

enter image description here

What should I do to be able work with images from my Photos Library? My photos Library is located on the external disk.

  • Can it open images from an internal drive, inside a Library package? – Tetsujin May 6 '15 at 8:14
  • @Tetsujin yes, It can open images from internal drive wherever they are. Also Pixelmator could open the images from the Photos Library until it was on the internal drive – Bartłomiej Semańczyk May 6 '15 at 8:30
  • ah, OK. Just wanted to be certain. All I can think to try right now is, Get Info on that drive, set it to Ignore ownership - that would eliminate possible permissions issues. After that, I'm really not sure – Tetsujin May 6 '15 at 8:32
  • @Tetsujin, what do you mean by "ignore ownrships"? When I get Info, there is no that particular checkbox, as it is usually at the bottom, under permissions... What do you suggest? – Bartłomiej Semańczyk May 7 '15 at 21:03
