ICloud :: Use Photo Stream To Get Old Photos From IPhone To IPhoto?
May 14, 2012
I just got a new macbook and I want to get all the pictures from my phone to iPhoto. On my iPhone are all my iPhoto events and I can't figure out how to transfer them. I know how to tranfer each new picture I take, but not the older ones. How can I do this?
I take pictures with my iPhone 4s and they go to my iPad just great but I only get about 50% of them to my MacBook Pro. They are radomly not there. There will be five or six that are there then 5 or 6 that are black no photo. All the warythrough the 200 photos I took on my latest trip? Is there any reason for this random messing up of photos? Is there anyway of getting them on the MacBook short of syncing my iPhone 4s through iPhoto? I am not liking this Photo Stream right now to many missing photos.
I wanted to free up space and stop the hundreds of pictures from automatically transferring to my moblie devies, so I thought I'll go ahead and reset photo stream, but I when I try to, I keep getting this error: "Could not reset your photo stream."Your photo stream could not be reset at this time due to a server error. Try again later."
How do I change where photos are saved from photo stream? Right now when they are just in iphoto I cant access them when i go to upload a photo to email/blog/fb. I want them to be more easily accessible for upload automatically, like go into a folder rather than the iphoto app in the Pictures folder.
Photo stream on my iPhone does not have all pictures in Photo stream on my computer. How do I get the missing pictures to show up on my iPhone? I followed the instructions to plug my iPhone into my computer. The instructions then indicate to select photos under devices to sync them but photos doesn't how up under devices.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
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've taken a load of photos on my phone and have placed them in an album within my photo stream, they are now showing up on my iPad but not on my mac which is where i really want them. I've tried turning the wifi on and off again, I've tried turn the devices off and on again. nothing is working! all i want is my work backed up.
I am using Aperture. Photos taken with my Ipad are downloaded through iCloud to my MBP. They used to be transferred automatically to a Photo Stream project and associated to a month. This stopped working. Everything is checked ok in the Aperture preferences...
I have the new Iphone 4s have not been able to use Icloud to download my photos in photo stream to my Imac. I have Iphoto 09 version 8.1.2 so I assume I would need to upgrade my Iphoto on the Mac but is there any way I can import my 400 plus photos in my Iphones photo stream to my Mac. It will not work when I try to sync the two.
I have 2 iphones and i wanted photostream. I got ICLOUD on my PC and it worked fine FOR FREE. My Macbook Pro said I need to upgrade to Lion in order to use photostream. I like my Mac as is but felt okay. It then costs $32 to upgrade-- just to get photstream. Okay so I did it. Then I go to ICLOUD and photostream is not highlighted. Under "learn more" I find out I need to upgrade my software--which I do . Then i find out that i need to go to the App Store and PAY to upgrade my IPHOTO for like another $16.00. I called Apple as there is nothing that says there will be another charge and frankly for $40 plus I can just plug in my phone. I am really angry and have not paid for the IPHOTO app that I dont want. There is nothing even in the forums I read that says there will be another charge.
How do I only have photos from my iphone stream to my iMac? I just downloaded from my digital camera close to a 1,000 pictures from my vacation on to my iMac and they all streamed to my iPhone! I don't want all those pictures on my phone. Is there a way to only have the photo stream work in one direction?
why do videos from a shared photo stream not appear in iPhoto? Within iMovie, it appears as though videos can be imported from the iPhoto library. However, within iPhoto there are no videos that appear within the Library. Is it possible to import photos into iPhoto from a shared photo stream? if not, how can videos be imported into iPhoto?
I've seen a few threads similar to this, but I haven't been able to find an answer. So, here goes. I have been having ongoing problems with photo stream not syncing all my photos. It's almost as if it has a mind of it's own. A few weeks ago I took three pictures for a friend - two of them appeared on photo stream the last never did. It STILL isn't there. It shows up on my camera roll on my iPhone 4S, but not in the cloud. Today I took EIGHT pics at a park and NOT ONE shows up in photo stream. Below is what I have tried:
Turned photo stream off on Mac and then back on
Turned photo stream off on iPhone and back on
None of these steps have fixed the problem. I thought one of the big selling points of photo stream was that it 'AUTOMATICALLY' syncs all of your pics and pushes them to ALL your devices.
Also should point out - I am aware that photo stream ONLY syncs photos over Wi-Fi - I've been connected to my home wi-fi for about four hours and the pics still aren't syncing
We were huge fans of accessing pictures via Mobile Me and using them as a screensaver on Apple TV.It appears this functionality is disappearing once Mobile Me ends and being replaced with Photo Stream which only shows pictures uploaded in the past 30 days.Is there any other way to view albums created in Aperture as a screensaver on Apple TV?
