I spent a lot of time organizing my iPhoto Library with Events. Now, my events have been converted to "Folders" in the new Apple Photos system. I moved them up a level (making them Albums), and I've been using this kind of structure to keep my photos stored in different sets for several months. Now, I'd like to convert my Photo Library to a file-and-folder structure, so that I can move to a different program, such as ShotWell for Ubuntu. Unfortunately, it seems that they have been "converted" to a new Apple proprietary format (.photolibrary). Is there any way I can automate the creation of a folder structure like this:
Without losing any quality?
Here is what I tried:
- Right-clicking onto Library and selecting "Show Package Contents": files seem to be in a wrong structure
- Dropping all Albums from Photos to Desktop: does not export files with correct "Albums" folders
- Downloading PhotosToDisk from here: requires a $12.95 purchase, which is not acceptable.
Help will be much appreciated!
