Applications :: Won't Work With Deleted Photos / Reappearing In IPhoto

I have 7,000+ photos in my iPhoto library, many of which have been painstakingly edited. However, when I noticed yesterday that pictures I had deleted (and emptied from the iphoto trash) have reappeared in the library under the relevant 'Events' folder. Why oh why oh why? I have spent six hours already redeleting and editing. Why did this happen? How can I repeat it from happening again? Do I need to "rebuild" my library by holding down the command + option keys when opening iphoto?

OS X :: Won't Work With Deleted Photos From Photobooth
I was having a lot of pictures taken by photobooth and once I had gone to all images present in the finder and I deleted all the pictures from there thinking that they will not be removed from photobooth but all the pictures deleted.

I moved them to iphoto software but they are also unavailable but there is a small photo and when I copy and paste it to my desktop, it says this file is deleted and no longer available and I have emptied the trash too.

OS X :: Won't Work With Back Up / Snow Leopard Deleted All Photos
Backed up my macbook air using time machine to my time capsule. Then went into iphoto and backed up pictures just to make sure. (They are all the pictures of my 6 and 2 year old since birth, very important to me). Opened time machine to make sure that my pictures had backed up, they were there and I figure everything is good.

I install Snow Leopard and after rebooting all pictures are gone. My iphoto library is gone. I went from 49.68 gig of used storage space on my hard drive pre-Snow Leopard to 17.92 gig of used storage space on my hard drive after installing Snow Leopard. I get kind of hacked off but figure there is no big deal since I know that my photos are in my Time Capsule. I go into time machine and there are 0 jpegs, 0 iphoto libraries and no pictures of any kind other than icons.

I freak the heck out and just plain don't understand. I call Apple 2 hours on the phone yesterday and 2.5 hours on the phone today and I am told that it is a problem being passed onto the engineering department and that they will get back to me but most likely the photos are gone and they are sorry. 3500 photos of my children's lives eaten by the dang Snow Leopard.

This is unacceptable, I did everything right in this instance, backing up my things, even spent the extra money to buy the time capsule, from apple, to make sure my backups went flawlessly. Got an appointment with the Genius Bar at the local retail store for Sunday but I was told today that they will more than likely not be able to help and will just add to the notes on my "Case" with apple.

Applications :: Notes Won't Delete In Mail / Keep Reappearing In Reminders?
So I've recently migrated back to Mail after a long hiatus and set up my Gmail account with IMAP. I like Mail 3.0, but one bug could be a deal breaker for me:I don't like the notes feature and don't plan to use it. However, there are four mystery notes that keep reappearing in my Reminders. I don't remember creating them, and whenever I delete them they reappear about 5 minutes later. They are all blank and always have the same timestamp, too. I've tried junking them, I've tried deleting the Notes mailbox itself, even deleting it on google's end.

Applications :: Won't Move Photos To Trash In Iphoto / Using Snow Leopard
I've been trying to clean up a bunch of duplicates but when I highlight a photo and then take the option "move to trash" it simply moves the highlight to the next photo but the system acts as though I have moved the first photo to trash as the option to move to trash is now unavailable. I am running snow leopard but I am sure I have performed this task before in this version of the OS. Dragging a photo to trash simply doesn't work.

IPhoto 11 :: MobileMe Gallery Deleted Photos Also Deleted From Event?
I have just noticed what looks like new behavior in iPhoto '11 when deleting a photo from a MobileMe gallery.Here is what I did to recreate the problem/behavior:

1) Created iPhoto Event with 2 images in it.

2) Shared the Event to a new MobileMe Gallery by: Share, MobileMe Gallery, Add

3) Waited for the Event to be shared to MobileMe Gallery.

4) Opened the Gallery in iPhoto under the Source list, Web, MobileMe Gallery

5) Deleted 1 of the 2 images in the MobileMe Gallery, right-clicked, and selected Trash.
the Image is now deleted from BOTH the MobileMe Gallery AND the iPhoto Event (see step 1) I confirmed this by opening the iPhoto trash and finding the image there, and then opening the iPhoto Event and finding the image missing there.I also just tried this with an Album...

1) Created a new Album.

2) Dragged an image from an Event into the Album.

3) Published the Album to MobileMe using Share/MobileMe Gallery/Add.

4) Opened the Gallery inside iPhoto Source list, and deleted the image.

5) Opened the Album - image deleted. Opened the Event - image ALSO deleted. Opened Trash - the image is in the Trash.

This seems like a bug, or at least behavior for which a warning should be given by the Trash dialogue box before deleting the image. Deleting an image from an Event after publishing the Album is especially surprising, and seems counter to the way Albums have always acted.

IPhoto 11 :: Unable To Recover Deleted Photos From Iphoto
I tried to back up my iphoto pictures to an external hard drive. I guess instead of copy the 'iphoto library' icon from my Pictures folder, i copies the 'iphoto library' folder in the 'Aperture Library' folder.

Then i deleted some of my old photos thinking that I have backed up the images. But to my horror, when i copied the 'iphoto library' folder from my external hard drive back to my laptop, it doesn't work.

How can i retrieve my photos??

Applications :: Won't Work With Iphoto Library / Size Doesn't Match Folder Size
why the iphoto library file size in the finder appears to be a certain size, while iphoto itself reports a very different size. Is there any way to recover any disk space or reconcile the numbers here? Please see the attachments below, it may make a bit more sense that way. I would like to recover the disk space and if it really is a 16gb difference somewhere.

Applications :: Won't Work With Imovie Photo Quality / Quality Better In Iphoto
Started archiving all my old photos and creating dvds. started off using iphoto which is great for compiling a quick slideshow to a couple of music tracks. i then imported these to idvd and created my first dvd project which i was pretty pleased with for a first attempt. The only thing i found annoying was that i could not link all the slideshows together in idvd so that they played one after another, instead you had to come back to the menu and start the next i thought i would import these slideshow movies into imovie and create a complete movie with chapters, titles etc. but when i did this i noticed that the quality of the slideshow in imovie was very noticeably worse.

being new to mac i wasnt sure what was up so i thought about importing the photos directly into imovie and working with them there. but once again the quality was really poor compared to the iphoto and idvd slideshows. after this i though maybe its just a preview problem and all will be well when i burn them to dvd and watch them on i burnt a dvd with one slideshow created in iphoto and imported into idvd and also put on a movie of the same slide show that id imported into imovie and back.

anyway long story short quality still better in slide show created in iphoto.

Applications :: Won't Work With Movies In IPhoto / No Longer Movies
I had a bunch of movies that took with my digital camera that were always imported into iPhoto when I transferred my pictures into it. I used to just be able to click on them in iPhoto and the movie would open up and play. Now it seems that my movies are gone and all that I have of my movies is the first frame as a picture and nothing else. Their file extensions used to say .mov but now are .jpg. I've tried changing the extension back to .mov but no movie is there and the file sizes are not what a movie should be.
I'm running Snow Leopard on a 13" Macbook Pro with newest version of iPhoto. I have quicktime X and Quicktime 7 installed.

OS X :: Won't Work With Terminal / Everything Deleted
I have an issue with Terminal..a few months ago I was just running some commands..somehow I deleted everything from terminal, and wasn't able to run any more commands. Somehow, I got the functionality back by my address (whatever it's called..dunno the lingo), has changed.

here's what I see now:

Last login: Thu Dec 9 18:22:30 on ttys000
new-host-2:~ tylerclifford$ defaults write

It says new-host-2: now, instead of just saying my name (which is what it did before).

MobileMe / Mail :: What Is Deleted Messages Folder And Why Does It Keep Reappearing
I have configured to move deleted messages to the Trash mailbox and to store deleted messages on the server.Under the .Mac tab in the mailboxes list on the left-hand side of, I see a folder called "Deleted Messages". There's nothing in it. But I've tried deleting this folder, and it continues to reappear. All of my deleted messages are in the Trash mailbox, so I'm not sure what this one is for.

IPhoto 11 :: Deleted Photos Still Found Under Original Folder
I have a large collection of pictures (More than 20.000) that I still need to import to my iPhoto. I didn't imported yet because I still have some concerns about iphoto. My pictures are organized in folders, something like: ~/eduardo/Pictures/2008/June/EventName. I would really like to keep this structure for my photos (since I feel safer this way). I noticed that even unchecking the option "Copy items to iphoto library" when I delete a picture from iphoto, I still can find it under the original folder.

Is there any way to delete pictures from iphoto and also from the hd at the same time? I searched a lot about this issue and the only solution that I could find was to delete the pictures from iphoto, and then going to finder and delete the picture again. This is very hard to manage and make impossible to keep a large collection without any human error. (For accident I may delete one single photo on iphoto and forget to delete on disk. The inverse also apply).

Applications :: Can't Access Photos In IPhoto Library
In iPhoto 06, in the finder, if you went to the iphoto library folder, you could select the photos in the original or modified folders. I'm using iPhoto 08 on my iMac and I can't do that anymore. For example, when I'm in Photoshop/trying to upload a photo to a webpage and I want to open a photo thats in the iPhoto Libraries Original folder, it won't go any farther than the iPhoto Library, there's no arrow so I can't get to the different folders in the Library. When I click on show file in iPhoto, it will show this location, but other than that I can't get at it. I'm running the latest version, just checked to see if there were any updates and there wasn't. I've taken screen shots to try and explain. the second one is when I try to get at it through the finder and the first one is when I click on "Show File" on a photo in iPhoto.

Applications :: IPhoto - Can't Select Multiple Photos
I cannot select more than one photo because only one (very large) photo appears in the window where I normally select them. The slide bar (bottom right) is not the problem as it is set on the smallest photo size setting.

Applications :: Don't Import Photos To IPhoto Library
I recently discovered Bridge. Always had it, but never used it. I very much like that you can see all the information of a selected photo, and that you can sort photos on for example dimensions. It works faster than iPhoto too. The best thing though, is that you can make your own folder-structures.

That's the biggest disadvantage of iPhoto I think. Now I have hundreds (as a matter of speaking) events, which could be grouped to a a few dozens. For example: "Music" > "Concerts" > "Deep Purple" > "California Jam '74"

I know I can create (Smart) albums in iPhoto, but that merges everything into one. If I use my example again, if I would create an album "Music", there would be "California Jam '74" in it, but also an other concert from Deep Purple. And concerts of other bands. And other things related to music. And all of that merged into one huge 'event'.

Am I right or am I missing something?

But, iPhoto looks fantastic, the slideshows are superior, and those new Places and Faces are awesome. But that absence of a folder structure is killing me. If the events were just folder thumbnails...

I'm thinking, what if I do "don't import photos to iPhoto library", and make my own folder structures? That way I can use Bridge as it supposed to be, and if I want to show (off with) my photos I'll go to iPhoto and spend a minute finding the right event.

Software :: Trying To Upload Photos In Facebook - Java Won't Work
I seem to have some problems with Java. For instance, when trying to upload photos in Facebook, the java "thing" won't work. It's no longer asking me if I trust the certificate. This has happened on other websites as well.

I have tried to go in to Java webstart in Utilites and when it opens I am getting these messages:

" permission denied"


I'm not quite sure what all this means and to be honest I'm not really sure "what" java actually is (is embarrassed).

Software :: Work Deleted When Inserting Photos?
I was inserting photos into my document (due Friday) and somehow the work was deleted. I didn't back it up before inserting (never had trouble inserting before). It somehow saved it under the file name but also, somehow I got the original version back. How can I retrieve what was done prior to inserting the last two photos that stole my work? Does this thing autosave? (I'm really new to this from a PC). It never asked me if I wanted to save or delete so I had no warning! It just disappeared!

OS X :: Deleted .dmg File With Password - Recovered With Data Resource 2 But Won't Work
I had a very important file witch I had a password on. A .dmg file with password made in disk utility. Then i did manage to delete it from my Mac. I used Data Rescue 2 and got the .dmg file back.. But it had changed the name to D-00005.dmg istead of Private.dmg ( can not remember exactly what the file was named first )

The number one reason I know this must be the file is that it was 100mb. I only made one file with dmg file with 100mb. I remember the password, but it never ask for it when i try to open it. I`ll just get a message that it cant be open. If someone has a answere for me that can help me get what is in that .dmg file back I will transfer 50 usd on your fulltilt poker account.

Applications :: Iweb-iphoto Interface Suddenly Stopped Working (can't Add Photos)
for about a year i've been using iweb to create a simple web page, which includes photo album pages, each with several albums that were put there simply by dragging and dropping an "event" from iphoto via the media browser. about a week ago, i tried to add some new photos and iweb won't take them. when i drag an event from the media browser to the albums page i want to add it to, i see a lightened image of the thumbnail, the green circle with the "+" sign, and the red icon with the number of images, but when i let go of the mouse button, the image bounces back to the media browser and nothing gets added to the web page. i've tried creating new, blank pages and adding them there, all with the same result.

Applications :: Won't Organize Photos With Folders / Can't Find Apps
I'm looking for a photo management program that will organize my photos using folders for events, so if I ever decide to switch programs, it will be easy because it's all organized already. I currently have iPhoto, but it doesn't seem to create folders in the "Pictures" directory, so I doubt switching to another program from iPhoto will be simple. Do any of you know of an app that does what I want?

Applications :: Won't Install IPhoto 8.1.1?
When I open iPhoto on my new iMac it tells me that there is an update available and that I should goto Software Update to get it. I go there and it says that my software is up to date. I go back to iPhoto and it still tells me there is an update for 8.1.1 but it also gave me a manual install link. I manually downloaded it and it won't install because it needs iPhoto 8.1 from iLife 09'. I even tried rebooting and repairing hard drive permissions. I am using iPhoto from iLife 09 that came on my brand new Mac.
