ICloud :: Moving From MobileMe Gallery Without Losing Picture Quality
Jun 7, 2012
Iīm hesitating moving from mobile me gallery to icloud because Iīm afraid of losing my pictures. (I have 30 albums) If mobile me gallery is compressing the pictures? When I tried to download them as zipped files. The picture I opened was only 880 KB. How do I make a backup without reducing the quality of the pictures? Will I find my pictures in icloud if I move to icloud without having backup?
there is no replacement for MobileMe Gallery, and all of the albums that we have uploaded over the years will just go away. It is even more maddening as we have been paying customers for several years. I know we can redownload the pictures, but what the point? We uploaded the to share with loved ones. ¬†How can iCloud not have a gallery function? Why is there not a way to migrate photos in MobileMe Gallery to iCloud?
I've been paying for my Mobile Me account and use My Gallery to store movies for business, but now I need to 'move' everything to my iCloud.¬† I have several Apple devices: my Mac [OS 10.7.4], my iPhone and my iPad.¬† All seem to have iCloud on them, but I can't access my movies in iCloud.¬† However, I can still see them in My Gallery, which I presume will 'go away' soon. So I need a place to put them to be able to link customers to them.¬† It takes forever to put one into my 'dropbox' app.¬† I thought they would automatically transition to iCloud?¬†But they don't seem to be doing that?

I have an old pre-Intel G5 Mac desktop and want to keep using Mobile me Mail and Entourage because they work so well and I have been using them for 10 years. I cannot get the mail system to work having moved everything else to iCloud. Followed the instructions but it just does not work and the mail.mac.com server will not accept my password. Any ideas?
I just upgraded to iPhone 4S and switched from MobileMe to iCloud. I knew I was losing some features, but since the System Preferences‚Ä¶>iCloud pane (in Mac OS X 10.7.3) shows "Mail & Notes" (which I checked), I figured that notes will continue to sync. Except they do not. And, unlike the MobileMe PrefPane, there is no "Sync now" button to force synchronization. So, the notes on my iPhone and on my MBP are now out of sync. Then I thought to check on icloud.com‚Ä¶ and find no way to access Notes there.So, are Notes supposed to be sync'ed or not?? Does anyone else have this problem? (I suspect I can connect the iPhone to iTunes, and force the transfer of info, but that would not merge them and I'm likely going to lose something

I think I blew up my MobileMe. I had recently moved my Mac over to Lion, so was ready to make the switch from Me to iCloud. I found the process somewhat confusing over the course of things (which took place in stages over several weeks). Somehow I ended up with two AppleIDs. Fortunately, all my purchases were with the old, main one. But when I moved to iCloud, it moved it with the new one. I ended up deleting the iCloud new accound off my iPhone and iPad and reinstating the original ID there. But probably lost all that was in my Me account (I think a couple of photos and some files that were on the iDisk). I'm mostly posting this so others will possibly check their accounts before making the move to iCloud. Others might not be so lucky to not lose anything important in this switch.
I'm on 10.6.8 and chose the option to keep my email working after the iCloud move. It isn't working however. Do I need to take some additional steps to make it work again? I can't set up iCloud because I'm still on 10.6.8 and don't see it in the systems preferences.

After moving Mobile Me to iCloud, I am having 2 problems with the Mail application.†On my Laptop running Lion, I'm not able to send email using my ".me" account. Error message says "connections to the server 'p99-smtp.mail.me.com' on the default ports timed out." The incoming mail server is now showing "p99-imap.mail.me.com."†I do appear to be receiving mail to my .me accounts.†On my Power PC G5 (running OSX 10.5.8) I am no longer receiving mail from my .me account.
I installed Lion on one of my MacBooks and am moving to iCloud from Mobile Me. I need to keep using 10.6.8 on my work MacBook for use with Adobe applications that I use daily. Will I stilll be able to access my Mail account on the MacBook that isn't running Lion?

the emails I have not deleted from my mac-book will not be available after I switch to iCloud?¬†Also, I have an iPhone4 and an original iPad.¬† Will these, along with my mac-book, still be compatible?¬†IE synched?
In the past, if I didn't move forward when Apple moved forward, all that happened was that I did not have access to new features.This time, with the demise of MobileMe and the introduction of iCloud, if I don't move forward I lose features, but even worse, even if I do move forward, I still lose features.¬†In particular, the lack of syncronization under iCloud of Mail's Rules, Accounts, and Smart Mailboxes means that on our several machines I have to manually do updates multiple times, which of course leads to multiple mistakes.¬†In my view, what Apple has done has the look and feel of customer abuse, something usually attributed to another large tech company.¬† I can't avoid losing functionality, whether or not I move forward with Apple.¬†
At transition, I initially want to keep my me.com/mac.com email and then (later) seamlessly move to Lion and full iCloud.¬† Will this be possible and if so, can anyone see necessary tweaking to ensure that my retained me.com email will continue to¬† forward or receive from external email accounts?¬†¬†
Accessing the URL me.com/move is not possible- browser redirects me to Find My iPhone. When I attempt to enter my legacy MobileMe address in the iCloud System Preference panel, I am prevented because it is taken despite the fact it is assigned to me. Infinite Loop of frustration: being constantly redirected by support documents to a page that does not exist.My me.com email address is verified in my Apple ID settings page.
I was wondering if there is any applescripts out there that are able to download a whole picture gallery from a web site. This means I would lead it to the first page of the gallery, and then I'd click go and it would go to the next page and download each photo.
Will the albums still be available to the groups that I have identified to be uploaded & downloaded via "Web" in I-Photo? Gallery was Mac's answer to Shutterfly & I am confused as to whether this aspect is still available under "Web" in I-Photo.
Each of my MobileMe Gallery albums have been synced to my Mac, I see all of them in my iPhoto v8.1.2 (Snow Leopard).¬† I'm not clear if they will still be on my Mac when MobileMe expires on June 30 so I want to move the albums to Photos in my iPhoto. The instructions I found in Apple's Support area say once photos are downloaded I can drag & drop them to Photos in the left hand column to ensure they are in my main iPhoto library.¬† I can't seem to make that happen.¬† Tried clicking on one album and dragging it to Photos - didn't work.¬† Tried selecting all photos in one album and dragging the group to Photos - didn't work.¬† I'm sure this is basic stuff to most but I am still fairly new to Mac.¬† ¬†will the contacts & calendar in my iPhone & iPad continue to sync using iTunes after MobileMe expires?¬† Presently not going to upgrade to iCloud or Lion.
editing my iWeb page and the "mobileme gallery" widget isn't loading onto the page. It says that I can't display any albums or movies. I've read that it's because either I'm not connected to the internet (not true) or that I don't have any albums published to mobileme. This isn't true because I do have albums that are published. Does anyone have the same problem and know how to get it to work?
