OS X :: Can You Organize Events Or Albums In IPhoto 09
Apr 9, 2010
Can you nest events or albums in iPhoto 09, like how you can nest folders in Finder?For example, rather than having 200 events scattered in my iPhoto library, can I group the 200 events so, say 50 are under "work", 50 are under "family" and the other 100 are under, say, "Ballparks"
I have 20gb of photos stored on a portable hard drive. I'd like to copy all of them onto my macbook pro. When I download them to iphoto they show up under EVENTS. If I drag the individual folders to ALBUMS am I using up an additional 20gb of storage space on my hard drive since it doesn't look like the EVENTS folder has changed/moved?
using Disk Utility and I am totally confused. I am a first time MAC user and as I understand my system is Leopard. When I click on the disk utility and then burn What? Not even sure if this is the proper way to make copies of my albums, or should I just burn the entire photo list?
we are trying to transfer many iphoto albums from iphoto5 to the new iphoto8.We have probably spent 50+ hours making our albums, that consist of 8000+ photos.Of course I can easily import the photos into 08.But the folders are unrecognizable.I have tried to many drag them, and still the same problem.
Don't know if anyone has made an album using iPhoto yet, but if you haven't, you should. I needed some additional portfolios to place around some places where my images are displayed, and I was really getting tired of making my own.
The quality is very good - I got the hardbound 20-page book with black pages and it looks awesome. My only complaint id that they are currently having problems accepting books with Type 1 post script fonts.Had the book in three days after ordering it right through iPhoto.
I am not sure if this is the right place to post, but I recently upgraded to a IMac from a 3 yr old mbp. I want to transfer my iphoto pictures from the mbp to the imac. Anyway I export them in such a way to have the same albums show up on the imac as they were on the mbp?
I have a client who likes to have her desktop background picture change every 5 seconds. This is easy to set up. I go to System Preferences and pick the choices accordingly. The pictures are selected from an iPhoto album. This works fine except when you add more pictures to that album.
I can't figure out the exact sequence needed to get it to pick up the new pictures. If you look soon after you add them to the album in iPhoto you won't see them in the little thumbnails in the System Preferences panel - you'll only see the thumbnails of the pics you had before.
After fiddling with it a bit I can get the new pictures to show up and display on the desktop as needed. But, not sure what fiddling I did to make it happen.
It may have been a log-off and log-on that was needed. Maybe a reboot is required. I need to know so I can instruct the user on how to do it herself.
I have photo albums in iWeb that I would like to move to iPhoto. My computer crashed and some of the pictures on iWeb are the only ones I have. I have seen all the instruction on how to move pictures over from iGallery but, not iWeb.
I see there are several threads already on how to hide photos in iPhoto, but the hidden photos remain visible in the events. I am able to hid them, but they still show up in the events preview, and when you move the cursor over the event, the hidden photos are visible. Is there a way to completely hid a set a photos as well as the events preview? Password locked is preferred.
I have searched around but cant find an answer that works to this problem. I recently lost all events from iphoto 08 7.1.5 (not sure why but it coincided with HDD getting full. I have tried various things to rebuild the library, reimport etc but I cant get all the events back. I do have time machine but I imported a load of photos since last backup and cant lose them. All the original photos appear to be there but just cant for the life of me get the events to appear back
I have been a long time mac user and my friend has just switched from a PC. She has tons of photos and has become very frustrated at how hard it is to move photos between events, (cutting and pasting being the best method I could tell her to use) in iPhoto. Before she arranged them as folders in the Windows explorer and it was easy to drag a photo from an open folder in the right hand of the explorer to a different folder in the vertical list on the left hand of the explorer. It got me wondering if anyone knows of a way, or a program, that will allow the events to all be viewed in a drop down in the left hand sidebar (perhaps like exposing all of your playlists in iTunes) of the iPhoto window, allowing you to open events in the main part of the window and simply drag photos to a different event on the left? I suggested just using the finder to organise them, but then editing becomes difficult.
I'm trying out iPhoto for the first time.I've been scanning and cleaning up old photo albums the past few months and I generally sync them to my Apple TV units and I noticed there's a sync from iPhoto option and while an image viewer like Xee is nice in some respects, it doesn't organize by folder or album so I can quickly scan for photos between directories, etc. I have to "open" a new directory.
XnView (which is great on my PC) is still pretty much beta for the Mac right now. But it appears iPhoto can organize my albums any way I want it to and share across the network to another Mac, etc. so maybe it'd be a good way to organize.
The problem I'm seeing offhand is that I can import my photo by folder/directory (I've been organizing them that way as I scan/edit) and according the docs I've read a "Smart" Photo album is supposed to update itself as your library is updated, a simple test of moving a new photo into a folder that was already imported in no way "updates itself" that I can see.
If I added new photos to a directory, it appears I'd have to manually add those to iPhoto as I go, which could be a real hassle if I ever forgot to do it (basically it's like having to move/edit TWICE, once in the real world directory structure and then once more inside iPhoto.
I recently upgraded to iPhoto '08 and, quite frankly, I think it's awful. Events make absolutely no sense�photos are hard to organize within them, it's difficult to find an event even after they're all organized, and every photo has to be in one�including random shots that really don't belong in to any grouping at all. I think I'll stick with folders. But, is there a way to hide/disable events in any way? The events menu is on the top of the left iPhoto column and it's automatically selected on occasion. New ones are also created every time I import. I used to be able to hide albums, but now I don't want to use events�how can I get rid of that?
I recently imported 10,000 photos to iphoto covering the last 12 years of my life. The only problem is that the events are not in the correct order by date. It take me hours to reorganize by date manually. Is there an option in iPhoto or a workflow that will do this automatically? (the photos are all dated, just in the wrong order)
When photo stream photos go into your iphoto library, do they stay there permanently or do they disappear over time? like in the events tab on iphoto I have october 11 photo stream, nov 11 photo stream, etc. Are they gonna stay there or do I have to save them?
I have pictures that are in the incorrect "Events." Since iPhoto '11 auto-creates Events based on the time period the photos were taken, it is inevitable to get some into an Event you don't want them in. I might take 15 pictures in the morning of the sunrise, then take some pictures at the baseball game, and then another of something that catches my eye sometime during the day, and then some more photos at sunset.
I want the sunrise/sunset/sky pics in one event, the ball game in another, and the solo picture in no event, or an event called "Misc." If iPhoto '11 lumps them all into one Sunrise Event, how do I go about separating them out?
For some reason, since upgrading to iLife 2011. Whenever a new Event is created in iPhoto it doesn't create in the "Events" section. Only in Photos. Is anyone else experiencing this behavior? My latest "event" is October 2, but in Photos, the latest group in there is from today. can I delete the "events" then? are these two thing separate now?
I have tried checking with people at Apple store but they have failed to come up with the solution. Here is the problem everytime I restart my computer all the pictures from two of my events folders in the iphoto opens up at same time, meaning I have around 25 pictures or so opens up upon restart. I need to close them by using the function command and Q to close all at once. Often Time I hook up my computer to give presentation at work and its quite embarrassing that every one can see my pictures.
