For each of these pictures, I'd like to send it to a sub-folder of the folder "categories". For instance, if there is a picture of a boat, I want to copy (not move) this picture to "categories/boat". I don't recommend this approach. This just creates multiple, on multiple, on multiple duplicates of the same file. Just doing a little bit of math, if each ...

You can run the code directly from that document or you can save the code as an application and run the application like you would with any other app. activate set ...

This particular server seems to be changing data based on browser being used. For Safari, it loads jpeg image, thus downloadable and, openable by preview. For Firefox & chrome, it loads WebP. Safari doesnt support that, neither WebM. Both are sister projects by Google. There are multiple ways you can open a WebP via, listed on linked Wikipedia page ...

It's a WEBP image (developed by Google) and Preview doesn't natively support this file type. If you right click and select "View Image Info" you can get the image details (this one was done in Firefox) There are a few ways you can view this image... WebP Viewer (free). Available on the App Store. It's a Quick Look plugin and supports printing. Supports ...

Alternately, if I import say a group of photos at a time to my laptop, then delete the ones I don't want, can I simultaneously delete the originals on my iPhone from my MacBook? Does the Photos application have a "double-delete" or "delete here and on IOS device also" feature? As far as I am aware there is not such a feature unless the photo is in iCloud (...

Ninja Edit: apparently just the second condition is all that is needed. For Catalina, this method works (at least from what I can tell): use the Person is not % trick as before, but add the condition that the Person is blank (i.e., the field is literally blank). Here is what it looks like:

Welcome to AskDifferent! "Disable & Delete" deletes only the photos and videos on iCloud. However, you would lose the originals of your photos and videos if "Optimize iPad Storage" were selected instead of "Download and Keep Originals" in your iPad's “Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud > Photos” settings prior to your selecting "Disable & Delete". In ...

When syncing data from iCloud, you should remember that iOS syncs large data only when on Wi-Fi and charging. Please try the following: Sign out from iCloud, then sign back in. Put your device charging overnight with a good Wi-Fi connection. Be patient and keep in mind that download speed also depends on your Wi-Fi. If it's slow, downloading will take ...

iCloud is a sync tool with the idea to keep same updated data on multiple devices. If "Keep originals" setting for iCloud photos doesn't work for you, it's better to check for other services with more control over the data flow (Google Photos as an example).

You have three questions here and I'll try to answer them, as they are intertwined, but in general it is better to ask one question at a time: isn't there a one-way syncing? Sort of. There is Photo Stream which allows you to upload the iPhone's images from the last 30 days, which you can then import into your photos library. In your case, you'd have to ...

The conditions are unclear at this time. Apple does not inform on how photoanalysisd or photolibraryd work. It is something they need to address properly. As far as I know, photoanalysis uses CoreML and Vision to analyse what images contain, not only Faces in People. So if you search for mountain, it should retrieve images of mountains. When it comes to ...

On my machine it only counts the photos in any photos library on the drive or one opened from an external drive (which looks weird, when it shows 800GB of photos/videos on the system drive with 250GB capacity, while it's actually on the external one). This being said you should be able to find the pictures somewhere: You either have some pictures left in ...
