I have a older G4 running 10.4. All of (nearly) my photos and music are on that computer. I also have a Mac BookPro running 10.7. My phone,laptop and new ipad are on icloud. Is there any way of transferring my data from the old computer to cloud.
I have recently noticed that all of my accounts have become Standard accounts. I no longer have Administrator privileges for my computer (MacBook). I tried going through Root to change my normal account back to Administrator but according to my accounts preference pane even my Root account is listed as standard. I can check the allow user to be an administrator on this computer but it does not save this preference and will un-check once another user is selected or the window is closed.
I have also tried creating a new account through single user mode but again to no avail.How would I go about fixing this problem? I would like to install some new software and some software is no longer working the way it once did since this change.
I migrated from mobleMe to iCloud on my macbook air, using the [url]... ID, and on both iPhones using [url]... ID. The two iPhones sync with each other for apps-purchased, contacts, iCal and Contacts, but the macbook air does not. How do i get the three devices to sync? Apple says both IDs are migrated to the iCloud.
Info:MacBook Air (13-inch Late 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.4), both iPhones are iOS 5.1.1
I am trying to setup photostream to work with two iPhones. I have created a me.com account for one of them and a gmail.com account for the other iPhone. The me.com account works for photostream but I cannot get the gmail account to work. The me.com account says that it is the primary account. Does this mean that photostream only works for one account?
I am getting a new iphone for my wife and am unsure whether to create a second icloud account or stay with one. I know that we can use the same iTunes ID for apps and music, so no issues there. But I also want our phone calendars to sync with our Mac (already connected to my phone via icloud). My preference is to have two icloud accounts with linked calendars so we can each have 5gb of free storage. Is that doable with shared calendars on the phones and the Mac?
If we must be on the same account, how to separate out our mail and contacts? We are not using the @me account for mail, so my guess is if we use a separate email account in respective phones, our mail won't get mixed up. Is that correct? We already have multiple groups in our address books. Can we select multiple groups to sync one phone and others to the others? Also, can we access shared notes?
I am trying to share photos between user accounts through iPhoto. The problem is that when my photos are brought up on my girlfriends account they are at a very low resolution to what the file actually is. It's like taking a DSLR photo and making it camera phone quality. How can I improve this? can it be done or does iphoto lower the resolution to get a fast transfer time?
I need to find out how to make all my photos private from the other accounts i have created. This is a shared computer and my roommate found a few of my pics on his account. how to make those more private?
I imported my photo collection into iPhoto. I wanted to know if there was a way I could make changes i.e. enhance function on the photos and then do a "save as" to another individual file as opposed to saving it in the main, big iphoto file. I couldn't find a way to do that through iPhoto.
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.
I finally decided that I need something were to save my photos and music. All my DB of music and photos is consuming lots of my disk space at my imac (just 350GB) what should I buy? Any ideas on what brand and good external HDD?? would it be smart having a mini server instead?
We use one itune account for music and videos but each of us have Mac computers and two have ipad2s. How do I set up iCloud so we each maintain our own ical, mail, docs, etc but share pictures, family calendar, and music/videos?
I bought 3 email only accounts along with the family pack in mobile me (when it was dot mac) long time ago I paid for these for several years, then mobile me came in with Aliases, but my mail only accounts were tied over as legacies, and I continued paying for them in mobile me. They are 3 ----------@mac.com addresses, and are important to keep. What will happen in iCloud? am I going to loose these addresses - which would have a major impact on my "digital lifestyle" I really need to know how to keep them not figure out how to live without them! Then also I have two email addreses/accounts as part of mobile me family pack, wife has two also, Son has one. Does each of these accounts need migrating over to iCloud?What if two of these are the same person on the same Mac(s)
I have two [URL] accounts. One fairly old me.com account where most of my addresses and stuff are. The other account recently got moved to iCloud (it's part of a me.com family acocunt). I wish to remove the account currently on iCloud and merge it's data back into the [URL]account. But I'm unsure about how to proceed best. I have been burned in the past with this kind of activity, specifically with apple services.Is there a safe way of merging data back and forth between the accounts?
I wanted to create a separate Icloud account to just use Ical as a way to sync a calendar among several people in my small business.Is there a way to be signed in to two icloud accounts on the same device: Macbook Air, iphone, etc?
