Hello

Joseph :

    1. Select the photo that you want to edit.
    2. Edit the photo with the external editor application.
    3. Save changes.
    4. With the photo still selected, click Edit in iPhoto.
    5. Click any of the iPhoto edit functions (Red Eye, for example).
    6. Choose Undo from the Edit menu.
    7. Click Organize.


The thumbnail should now be updated and the edit photos may appear after this.

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

What do you mean 'external editor application'?

Joseph :

How are you editing a photo, is it using the edit option in iPhoto or using an external photo editor like PhotoShop ?

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

I am using iPhoto. I do not have PhotoShop.

Joseph :

Try the same steps

1. Select the photo that you want to edit.
2. Edit the photo.
3. Save changes.
4. With the photo still selected, click Edit in iPhoto.
5. Click any of the iPhoto edit functions (Red Eye, for example).
6. Choose Undo from the Edit menu.
7. Click Organize.

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

I'm sorry but I do not understand steps 2 and 3. How can I edit the photo without using Edit in iPhoto?

Joseph :

Yes use it

Joseph :

After saving the change

Joseph :

edit again and undo it

Joseph :

then click Organize

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

Undo is not highlighted on Edit menu. Where is Organize?

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

Watched youtube. I understand how Events and Albums work. Let me explain another way. I have previously edited this picture and hit Done. When I click back on it, the changes do not show up; however when I click on edit the changes slowly appear. My question is - why does it have to be in edit? and if we order this picture will it come with edits or not?

Joseph :

What are the options do you have while right clicking the edited photo after saving it ?

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

I can't right click with my mouse. Can I do something on keyboard?

Joseph :

If you can go into the iPhoto library, and organize the photos, you will see all the original images and edited images

Joseph :

try reaching the picture folder/iPhoto library

Joseph :

choose a photo, right click and choose "show in finder". That should locate the file for you.

JACUSTOMER-zjzcw5p7- :

Sorry you are not helping I'm going to opt out.

Joseph :

Okay, I will opt out
