Customer Question

I have copied my picture files from my PC to my new Macbook Pro. Why can't I view them?

Absolutely not. Your MBP came with everything you need.
I just need to know how you transfered the pictures and where did you put them when you transfered them?
I use an MBP and love it. We will get you through this.
I meant this to be a request for info and hit the wrong button. Sorry.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

It's my daughters MBP but I help with all the computer issues. She just copied them

on to the desktop.

Expert:  Daniel replied 7 years ago.
OK. There are more than one way to look at them.
1 Importing them into iPhoto (my choice as it can do some editing and other great stuff).

2 For just viewing use Quick Look (it looks like an eyeball in the finder tool bar. It is resizesable and the up and down arrow keys will scroll from picture to picture.

3 By selecting all they can be opened in Preview by double clicking on one of the selected pictures.

I tried sending you snapshots of these but this site was not cooperating.
