@ankii Thank you. That's useful information (you know more than Apple support.) I'll have to get more iCloud storage first to do that since iCloud wants to do all photos & with 10,000 to upload more space needed. An offline method would be nice. I thought once I plugged in my iPad to my Macbook it'd be more or less drag/drop op but apparently Apple in ...

Photos app on macOS, via iCloud syncing maintains album structure. If the photos are in albums in photos app on iPad, turning on selectively iCloud for photos app only and turning off backup on iCloud can do what you want to achieve. Though some offline method would be great too!

"iCloud is sync, not backup" that is an argument I've heard whenever things go wrong in iCloud syncing etc. Backup is always good. You'd value it when you'd need it. Does icloud photos strip any metadata or change the quality? None that I've observed so far. All my photos sync across iPhone and Mac and I do edits etc., on both of them. Metadata is not ...

I ended up following ankii's suggestion and just chancing it by turning iCloud Photos back on and letting it upload 100,000+ photos. On the plus side, it did sync successfully without duplicating any photos. On the minus side, I started it on 09/08 and it just now finished on 09/17. So that's 9 solid days of "uploading". It was on a mostly idle iMac with ...

Another 3rd party app for this: SnipTag (apps.apple.com/app/id1448677570). Like Photoshop, it can crop 5-6 photos scanned together. Additionally, it can batch crop scans: Upload a batch of such multiple scans, and one click crops them all. It supports jpg, png, tiff formats and any DPI setting. Cheaper than Photoshop, and also includes a metadata editor (I ...

Camera+ 2, available in the app store for US$4, is a very powerful app I use instead of Apple's Camera app. It provides Manual Controls, RAW Capture and Editing, Depth Capture & Editing, versatile Shooting Modes, superb Photo Library integration, etc. If you are a seasoned SLR camera user or not, this app will help you get the most out of your iPhone's ...

There is no tag for slo-mo. Photo uses the frame rate (over 60fps) of the video to decide wether it is a slo-mo or not. GoPro videos with 120fps appear also in the slo-mo folder. You have to convert the video to 60fps or less to achieve this, iMovie should work for this.

Your phone's camera is limited by its hardware. Without opening the case and switching out several integrated circuits (and probably modifying the phone's firmware and operating system) you're not going to change that. And you forget another thing that many cellphone camera enthousiasts overlook when talking about their hardware, and that's the optics. The ...

Go to Settings > Camera. You can select resolution and FPS for video & slo-mo. However, you cannot change the photo resolution. You you will also be able to choose between high efficiency, using HEIF/HEVC, or most compatible, using JPEG/H.264. This does not directly affect the resolution, but does affect how large the photo and video files are.

You can open the file with Preview and change the size of the file before you send it via message. From the Photo app you can export the photo as a jpeg say and then open it in Preview. Under the Annotate menu in Preview, you can save the size of the file. Once you decreased the size, you can then save it and send it using iMessage.

I cannot comment on popup asking for file size, but in Messages settings, Low image quality mode can be turned on. See last option in Settings -> messages It will be set for all images.

Are you using the built-in (it's typically on by default, at least it has been through most recent iterations of iOS, I'm assuming that it probably still is today) Photos app integration with iCloud? The one where it uses your iCloud storage space to back up all your photos automatically, with the choice of whether or not you want to use a feature called "...

It looks like you're into photography and you haven't been keen for best practices for managing files. You have two options now. 1) You'd have to create (bash OR python script) which would look for MD5 checksum of the files and would delete only it finds duplicate with later date. Keep in mind, one careless step can delete the files you didn't want to ...

In the MobileSync folder, go into the Backup folder which will probably just contain a pile of folders and files. Open these files in some type of Media Player (Quicktime is probably the best option). There may be of items once you open them, but if you sort by size you should get video, audio, and photos to float to the top.

The simplest way to achieve this is to enable My Photo Stream in iCloud Photos settings as it strips the video from all Live photos when viewed in 'My Photo Stream'. If your device is synced with Mac OS/X Photos then it also has the [unexpected] affect of not storing the video portion of the live photos - so it will only keep the still image.

Deleting photos is easy if you can borrow a Mac. https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/179483/5472 If not, you’ll want to pick away with it or open a support case with Apple. The engineers can blow away files if you give them a support PIN and they have a reasonable belief you can’t do it by plugging away with the tools Apple ships and you realize the ...
