Applications :: IPhoto - How To Upload Pictures From Digital Camera?
Apr 18, 2009
How do I upload pics from a sony digital camera (cybershot, about a year old)? I figured it would automatically detect the camera and get going, but nothing is really happening. Its probably really simple, but I have never done it before.
im trying to upload a video from my kodak usb camera M1093IS and i cant seem to find a way to do it. i plugged it in and i opened up imovie and my camera didnt show up. my camera also didnt show up on my desktop (which i understand to be normal since i used the search feature) but i still cant seem to find a way to do it. I need to upload a video for a school project.
I have spent the better part of an hour trying to rename a batch of pictures that I downloaded off my digital camera. As a recent switcher, it would have taken me a second to select the pics, right click, and rename them all in one batch. I was using Adobe's lightroom wich is really nice (free trial) and found it was going to be my picassa replacement (man do i miss that program) and I found that I need a plug in called bridge which only comes with photoshop which I dont have for mac. So.. anyone know how to rename 20 pics at a time. 2007 09 05 (1) 2007 09 05 (2) etc. who said changing over was going to be this hard. its like learning to ride a bike all over.
Is it possible to upload all the pictures in my iphoto library to the cloud ? If I can do that, can I delete the pictures from my Mac (is the cloud will store the pictures) ? Then, how can acess these pictures ?
I have a problem with my Iphoto application. When i open my Iphoto a text box opens up and asks if i would like Iphoto to connect to my digital camera, even though i do not have my camera plugged in. when i go to click one of the three options it freezes up and then must be force quit. I've tried to let it run it coarse in hope that it comes out of the frezze but this has not worked.
After installing Snow Leopard on both of my computers, I have found that while the computers recognize my digital camera it will not allow me to import photos into i-photo and eventually you have to just force quit i-photo to get out of it.
I currently have iPhoto '09 version 8.1.2. I tried uploading pictures from iPhoto to Facebook but I get the message "An error has occured. Please try again later". File > Export > Login (which brings me to the Login page on Facebook) > I sign in & that's when I get the message. I've even tried hitting the Facebook tab on the bottom right. Does anyone have any solutions to my problem?
When I log in to Snapfish and click to upload photos it only allows me to choose from photos that are in my pictures folder or other folders on the hard drive. It does not allow me choose pictures to upload from iPhoto?
Not sure what the deal is, but whenever I attempt to use the built in facebook uploader to upload some photos to facebook, I get error messages. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a built in facebook uploader if i have to export to desktop and use Facebook's tools.
I am very disappointed to find that iPhoto only uploads photos to Facebook & Flickr in complete sets. I was really looking forward to this feature as I use both websites regularly, and assumed I would be able to upload just one picture, and choose what album I would add that photo to online. But no, iPhoto needs me to have an entirely new Flickr album matching an entire iPhoto event.
I used iPhoto to import pictures off of a camera instead of manually copying them to my Photo folder and then using iPhoto to get them from there. So, my question is, where did those pictures go? I'm hoping that they are stored in some folder somewhere (which I have been unable to find) and that they are NOT just part of the monstrous "iPhoto Library" file in the Photos folder where I can't actually get at them.
So I'm getting ready to buy a new digital camera (am upgrading from an older HP 5.1MP camera) and I can't seem to find a list which states which cameras are compatible with iPhoto. I'm running iPhoto '08 on a iMac G4 10.5.6 / MacBook Pro IntelCore.
So far I'm looking at Canon's PowerShot SD790 IS, and their PowerShot A590 IS. Does anyone know if these two cameras are compatible with iPhoto?
I open iphoto and its blank. I go to my HD and I see the pictures in my iphoto folder. Also the side part on iphoto won't show, the option to look at events and past 12 months and so on...How do I fix all of that?
My mom accidentally deleted all the Christmas photos when she only meant to delete just one of them. She'd already deleted them off the camera. It all happened so fast, before Time Machine or any backups.
My new iPhoto '09 is quitting after downloading about 5/five/pictures from desktop or folder or other files. The number of photos in the folder is about 80. I did try not to use import cmd. and just slide few /8/ from desktop into iPhoto - is not taking - quitting after download of 3. Was no problem with download of original software. Was no problem with iPhoto '08 ever. My next step will be to uninstall whole iPhoto'09 and download again from the disc, but I am hoping for shorter solution.
So I admit to fiddling around with the iPhoto folder in my Pictures section before I knew that was a bad idea. Basically I was trying to move pictures out of my iPhone library into another folder on my computer so they would be out of my iPhone library on my comp and my phone.
Anyway, now for some reason there are duplicates on my iPhone in the Photos app but not in the iPhoto app on my Mac. Any thoughts on what the hell I did?
My new upgrade to iPhoto '11 seems to be working almost perfectly. It doesn't do the greatest job of auto-locating people to names in Faces, which is a bit of a disappointment, but I chalk it up to limitations in the facial recognition software, not a bug with iPhoto '11.
The biggest fail is that Places seems to be working NOT at all. I have pictures taken in a few places around the globe, and it only seems to recognize one of my hundreds of Northern California photos and only two of my dozens of photos from Hawaii. It doesn't recognize ANY of the pics I took in Europe or the thousands taken in my home region.
I have been using a mac for about a year and overall am happy with it. When using a PC in the past, I would organize my pictures in file folders by year and then by month. My husband backs up our pictures on an external hard drive (I don't use time machine) and we're finding the way iPhoto stores the pictures to be "messy" since it does it according to import date rather than file date.
I know that if I go to the original file in my library and move stuff around (in order to "clean it up") that iPhoto cannot find the pictures anymore and takes me to where it originally was. I did a test run on about 3 pictures.
Is there a way to change the way iPhoto organizes the actual files? Or am I going to just have to clean the folders up once they are on the external hard drive?
Where did this feature go? In the previous version of iPhoto, you could select a picture and there was a one-click process for ordering prints and/or posters. Is this feature hiding somewhere? I use it on occasion for posters. I have attached a pic showing the group where the button for the feature used to reside.
using iphoto 7.1.4 [371 ]. So far I have trashed the iphoto prefs.-finder.plist and ran diskwarrior. when i click on a thumb pic. it opens but it will break apart into blocks in the window; I click on the outside of the pic. to close and click on pic. again and it will open okay.quite often when it reopens it seems that the redraw of the pic is a little slow. after opening several pics. it seems to settle down and work okay for awhile. when I close the iphoto app.
I hate to start the subject of this post so negative but Snow Leopard is really disappointing. I have had nothing but problems since I've installed it. My computer runs a million times slower, Firefox takes forever to load pages that once loaded in a snap. My digital camera doesn't sync anymore.
