PowerPC :: Organizing Images In IPhoto With Appropriate File Names

Sep 25, 2010

Every time I try to "share" (move them out) my iPhoto files and move them out of iPhoto to another folder, if the numbers happen to be the same from a previous time, it will tell me they already exist and do I want to replace those photos with the new ones. The problem is they are not the same image, and I don't want to loose the older ones by replacing them with the new ones. How do I avoid this? I've tried to rename them in iPhoto and it still says they are the same number. I'm trying to organize my thousands of images.

Applications :: Tagging Faces In IPhoto (First / Last Names - First Names Only)?

Jan 28, 2009

How are most people tagging? Just first names? First and last names? I'm going to start the process tonight and I was wondering the reasonings behind people's decision.

Software :: Recommendations On Organizing In IPhoto

Sep 14, 2008

I wanted to find out some of your opinions on a basic approach to organizing images I am considering doing with my images in iPhoto '08...any pros and/or cons you can respond back. I am looking at my events in iPhoto and I see about 7 different one's for each of 7 different weddings I've attended; I see about 30 total events for each of the major family holidays over the last several years (X-Mas, etc.); and so on and so on. I was thinking about perhaps keywording each of the images in each of the wedding events using the names of the people who got married, then simply merging all 7 wedding events into a single event (perhaps creating an album out of each before doing so)...I'd then do the same thing for each of the family holidays (merging 30 events into a single event, after keywording appropriately and creating albums out of each event as necessary). Anyone have any thoughts on this approach? Pros? Cons?

OS X :: Organizing IPhoto Videos In IMovie?

Nov 6, 2010

I used my iPhone 4 to record some video taken over a vacation in hopes of making a movie whenever I could. Today, I imported my videos from my iPhone into my Macbook Pro using iPhoto, and then iMovie automatically synced the videos just placed in iPhoto First of all, I posted the exact same topic in the "Digital Media" section, however it's been about two weeks since, and I've received no response due to the section's user traffic, or lack thereof.

Now, my problem is that I recorded about 5-6 hours of footage and iMovie has it all in one location called "iPhoto Videos." Furthermore, whenever I click into that location (folder), iMovie lags ridiculously it's very hard for me to navigate between the various days as it's all compiled into one location/folder.

Also, I'd like to mention that I've made movies before, however they were neatly organized by date as I was able to import the footage straight to iMovie instead of iPhoto (using a digital camera with a video recording feature).

Applications :: IPhoto - Organizing Events By Date

Apr 7, 2010

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)

ITunes :: Organizing By File Path?

Jul 22, 2010

I've always hated how itunes doesn't let you order by file path. It's really an overt ommission intended to get people to abandon their folder structures and have itunes take control. Anyways I've held off since I've built up a good system which works for me and I hoped that maybe one day it would get patched into it. Well it didn't look like they'd ever put it in so I started looking around for alternatives and I found one which works.

OS X :: Linux/Windows File Transfers - File Names?

Aug 13, 2009

I've got to transfer 250GB ish of files from an OSX machine (HFS+) onto a Linux EXT3 machine and a Windows NTFS machine.

The problem is that I've got lots of odd named folders/files on the OSX machine that are not compatible on the linux/windows machines.

For example :

"OLDER THAN 12/08/09" becomes "ONM6U4~U"

How am I going to get these files over properly keeping the file/foldernames as intact as possible?

PowerPC :: Managing EMac G4 As A File Server/ ITunes And IPhoto Machine

Feb 14, 2010

How much RAM should I stuff in an eMac G4 (1Ghz I believe) to get acceptable performance as both a low-duty File Server and as an iTunes/iPhoto/iMovie '06 Machine? Im currently having this capacity filled by 2 machines: iTunes/iPhoto by a G4/450 and iMovie HD on my G4/1.67 . I know Ill take a slight performance hit, but if it means my PowerBook can go back to being a laptop, its worth it.

Applications :: IPhoto Book Map Names Auto Change

Aug 21, 2010

I'm making a book of my holiday, its going great until I came to the map. The pointer always starts in Sydney, a hassle but I can work with it. My problem is as we went to Seymour in Victoria Australia, I type in Seymour and I'm given a dozen USA possibilities but I'm offered a search for my Seymour option. I take this, starting in Sydney and I drag the pointer to Seymour in Victoria (It says Seymour on the map) but in my book it changes the name to Mitchell. It does this for a number of stops. I could probably cope with one but when you go to 50 towns and you're showing off your clever Mac and all people go is I've never heard of Mitchell wheres that and I'm sure you can guess what my answer is, I don't know I've never been there. Particularly when the photo has Seymour Railway station on the photo.

OS X :: Cannot Copy From One HD To Another - Same File Names

Dec 27, 2009

I'm having an issue copying from one external to another (I just recently got 1TB for x-mas). Both of the drives are western digitals, so they're very good. The problem I'm having is every time it gets to my iTunes music, I get this error:
You can't copy some of these items because their names are the same as other items on the destination volume, and that volume doesn't distinguish between upper - and lowercase letters in filenames.

OS X :: File Names Not Case-sensitive?

Oct 25, 2010

Every unix system that I've worked with has had case-sensitive file names. In other words, file name "foo" is different than "Foo" is different than "FOO" and so on. In the MAC OS X shell,

if I have a file name FOO, and I type "more foo", then the contents of FOO are displayed, instead of an error message saying "foo not found". It also means that I can't really create files "foo" and "FOO".

Is this something that Apple has implemented on top of unix? Is it possible to get around this, so that the names do indeed become case-sensitive? It doesn't seem like an inherent unix thing, because if I type "f <tab>", and the only file in the directory.

OS X :: Export File Names To Text?

Mar 12, 2008

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of an app (or an option I'm missing in finder) that might be able to export the names of files in a certain folder (and subfolders, if possible) to a text file. I know how to print a list using applescript, but I'd like to be able to have the list in an editable text file.

IMac PPC :: Directory Won't Keep File Names

Jun 25, 2012

The directory seems to have to rebuild each session. I open a folder and have to wait 8 seconds for the file to build then I can see the contents. After that, the folder opens immediately and will operate without problems UNTIL I shutdown. After restart, the folder stalls again as it builds the directory once more. My machine has multiple drives so I have triple boot and the other drives work fine so it is the system, not the computer itself.

OS X :: Desktop Folders/All Disappeared Along With All File Names

Jan 28, 2009

I restarted my macbook pro (10.5.6) last night after really slow internet speeds, and when it booted back up all my desktop folders disappeared. I can't even find a single file name anymore anywhere on the harddrive.

Apple support said they've seen the desktop directory glitch with the finder, but we could not reverse whatever happend and they suggested I spend $100 bucks on Disc Warrior.

How am I going to find about 1700 files????? My time machine drive stopped backing up two months ago, ggggrrrrrrr -right when I needed it eh?!

Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to get back the file names and folders?

I know the data is still on the drive, just with no allocations.

I've repaired all disc permissions 3 times-it keeps having to repair them everytime I reboot.Terry

OS X :: Removing Text From File Names Using Terminal - Possible?

Nov 21, 2008

I need a way to quickly remove text from a load of file names. I have ripped my DVD TV show series to my Apple TV and transfered them, but I want to make all the file names simpler that what they are currently. Changing them all through FTP would take ages - so I am hoping there is some kind of recursive command I can use to eliminate a set bit of text from a group of folders.

OS X :: File Names From Windows Server Get Cut Off To 31 Characters?

Mar 30, 2010

The title explains most of the problem:We have 5 (PC) servers on our network and several host files for the workstations. The strange thing is that, despite the fact that all servers have Windows Server 2003 AND SCSI drives formatted as NTFS, that only one server has the problem mentioned in the title:

Any file made on a Mac and placed on that server will be readable on Mac AND PC. Any file made on PC and placed on that server will be readable on PC but will get cut off to 31 characters on all Macs (running Mac OS X 10.4 & 10.6).

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Reordering File Names?

Jun 14, 2012

When reordering the file names adding a 'space' before the name forces that name to the top of the alpha sorted list (can add more spaces to 'nest' too). In the (good?) old days of OS7 adding opt+8 at the start of the name added a bullet and forced the file to the bottom of said list.  Doesn't work now (sob!) - also forces file to top.

Mac OS X (10.6.8)

OS X :: Changing File Names For Multiple Files (thousands)

Dec 24, 2007

On the side I do photography, a lot of photography. I have been a OS X user now since May-ish, but I am still learning the system.

Since most of my most span back a few years the there are tons of photos that have the same file name which is causing a problem now that I purchased a new digital picture frame.

Is there anyway to do a mass file name change? I have a lot of pictures broken down in to folders (events).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Spotlight To Search File-names Only Not Content?

Every time I do a spotlight search, intending only to get filenames (that's what it says in greyed out lettering in the search field), the Spotlight results show content as well with the result I have sometimes 1000s of items listed when I just want results containing filenames only. The search results are useless?How do I get Spotlight to search for filenames only? This is how Search used to be in Classic and for a while in OSX.
