Talking to Apple Support, they said the only thing they could come up with was to delete my Faces database. That hurts -- it involved deleting 116 people covering 170,000 photos.

The Joe Friday Answer: The picture was never recorded on your iPhone. That's the way the "Import" and Insert features work in Pages. You can get your picture from the Pages document easily: Open the document in the Preview app control-click on the picture, then select Share, Add to Photos. From there, you can export if you wish. The Long Answer: As I ...

Found a workaround! By saving the image to Files, and then re-importing it to Photos, the length gets cropped to your desired one.

Assuming your directory is correct, you have the following folders to move off the drive or to thin out: 558 GB photos library 67 GB Windows 7 disk image and files If you have a good backup, you should be able to simply copy those to an external drive, train them and see that all the space you expect is freed. The virtual windows files runs great on an ...

Apparently because the library is on an external drive there's a bug that's causing this to happen. I'll keep everyone posted for when there is a fix!

Is it merely a matter of going into System Preferences → iCloud → and ticking the Photos box? Yes. If it is, I’m guessing I must have the external hard drive (where the Photos library it) connected when I do it, and must be ready to leave it connected for a while (maybe overnight) while it syncs with iCloud? Yes,

A simple approach would be to use Shared Albums. Create a shared album for the source Apple ID and share it with the destination Apple ID. On the destination, export the photos to save a local copy. Once exported, you can unshare/delete the shared album at source end.

The photo library file on disk is actually a directory and you can descend into the directory. Finder normally wont do this because it knows it is a special directory (you can right-click on it and pick 'Show Package Contents'). A better way to get more detailed info is to open the Terminal utility and use the command line: cd ~/Pictures/GKJones\ Fam\ ...

I assume Photos is reporting the total size of all the pictures (and just the pictures). This is sort of confirmed by selecting all the photos in the library and then using Get Info: this shows the same size as selecting the library. Finder is showing the actual size of the library file on disk. This file contains all the photos but also a lot of other "...
