Last year I bought a MacPro Desktop, and just recently got iLife '09. I'd move all the photo's onto my external LaCie Hard Drive. and I'd like to move them back again, i.e direct iPhoto's to these photo's that are on my external Hard Drive. I've made an extensive search before coming on hear to ask, but I can only seem to find "How to send photo's from iPhotos onto an external Hard Drive, but I want to "send them back from the external Hard Drive" but keep them on the external Hard Drive so I son't use up internal Hard Drive space. I thought there might be an easy way to do this? Can somebody tell me how to do this, or point me in the right direction?
I have the latest iMac - OS X Mavericks. I recently shifted from Windows to iMac. I am a photographer and have thousands of pictures in my external hard-drive (Western Digital) that I have backed up by folder name (YYYY-MM-DD) using windows. But, now I have started using my iMac and planning to backup my new pictures stored in iPhoto library. I am not sure how can get the original pictures by year, month and day from iPhotos and copy them in external drive using the same folder structure - YYYY-MM-DD.
Not sure how to do this simpler. At this time I tried to go to iPhoto, then do Reveal in finder, go to that folder, select all my files, copy them, go to external harddrive, create a folder - YYYY-MM-DD and copy them. I can do this for each hundreds of folder sitting in my iPhoto.
I want to take a copy of all my images in iPhoto from my Macbook pro 10.6.8 and then view them on my macbook air (Mavericks). I bought a Toshiba Canvio Connect 1 TB portable hard drive. Can I copy across the images without using any software?
I have been having problems with facebook for a week now. I cant upload photos to facebook. I finally was able to get the uploader screen to generate but now I cant select anything to attempt to upload. When I use the simple uploader I get the error: Firefox can't find the server at [URL]. I have snow leopard osx and I am using the newest firefox.
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 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:
I just purchased a used mac, and when i am in safari, using facebook; when I click to view an image, then go to unclick it (which would normally take you back to facebook) my browser goes back to my homepage. Please help, I have a warranty throught a private company but really hope this is an easy fix seeing as i JUST got this computer!
When I try to upload photos to Facebook I get the "Set Up" window. I log in to my account and once it is on it tells me to close the window and go back to the application, but then it will ask me again to "Set Up" the account. It will continue doing this forever.
So I've just about run out of memory on my MAC, actually, I have! I was able to delete some things and it's already functioning much better. What is taking up so much space are my photos. I have an external drive I would like to move them all to and everything I look up says it's as easy as a drag and drop. The only problem is I'm unable to drag and drop. Nothing at all happens when I try to do that. I've tried it off of Finder with just one item and nothing will move at all.
I have created many projects. Ie diving pictures from numerous places.
Now I want to organize i.e. projects - Scuba Diving Pictures then Folder Bonaire then album different set of pictures from different days new folder Grande Cayman then different albums for individual days
I have done this for one project BUT when I try and delete the original project it tells me I will lose all my photos which have been moved...
Not sure what I'm doing here but I have a flash drive taht I am trying to move pictures from iphoto to. I'm still in Windows world I guess and am looking for the flash drive on the left side so i can drag and drop the photos into it but I don't see it anywhere.
I am working on a project in Aperture. I want to move a select group of photos from iPhoto into Aperture 3.5.1. I know how to open these images in Aperture by switching libraries but I can't figure out how to actually move these photos into the Aperture project. Most posts I found are based on Aperture 3.3 which is slightly different.
Since this doesn't have much storage i recently moved my entire 40Gb iPhoto onto an external drive. This worked great and love the new storage i have on my mac.
I plug my GoPro into my mac and it imports the photos onto the iPhoto on my external drive.
However the problem occurs when i try get those new photos onto my iPhone, i plug it in and go to photos on my phone in iTunes and it only shows my old iPhoto stuff, so i can't get those new photos across to my iPhone. I've tried the choose file option and chosen external drive but i doesn't seem to work?
