Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Please do an update
you gave an answer? I can't see it (first time using this site)
can you please do an update for iphoto
ah! will try that
i will be on standby
if needed you can ask stuff to do on the shell prompt. I may not be a good mac user, but I'm expert in everything unix. Just helping a friend here get his iPhoto running again. Update is running... (I will also set up time machine, that would have avoided the situation)
no problem please let me know if it works
Hi. after update, photos in trash are now visible. But the rest has not changed: all albums are empty and listing all phtos also shows nothing
do you see the photos when you go to macintosh hd on you desktop and click images?
yes. they are shown
as I said. pictures are on the disk, but iPhoto forgot about them
please simply either press command + a to highlight all the pictures or press command and click on the pictures you are speaking off....after you are done...open iphoto and simply drag them into iphoto
will they be classed again into the existing albums?
no other way? because the albums are still there
im sorry when you mean classed can you elaborate
you can drag them into any album you desire and it will be in iphoto
I have an album called "holidays gran canaria 2011" which appears empty
drag it into that album
there has been a lot of work to put all pictures into all these albums
I have no idea which picture was in which album
i cant help you with that part ...only you will know that picture
did you use you time machine at anypoint
well iPhoto knew it too.
unfortunately that is the only way but if you want a second opinion from an expert i can opt out...i am currently on a mac and had to do that a few weeks ago
I will try to find out if the internal database of iPhoto still retains some infos of the photo classification. if you could point me to the relevant files, that would be nice.
im sorry im confused
ans one of your collegues then
so you want me to opt out
also which version iphoto do you have
when you have iphoto on and you click view is hidden pictures checked?
nothing changes if I uncheck or chek it.
i have another colleague here and he suggested the same thing i told...if you are dissatisfied pLEASE DONT RATE ME ..i will opt out
please opt out
if I go to iPhoto Library/Albums and list content of binary file "holidays in gran canaria 2011-Data" I can see which pictures were in that album. That was the info I was looking for. I found it on myself. I won't rate this as long as I don't get charged.
no help needed anymore. Google was faster providing an answer :-)
