This is a workaround for you June, so I hope this will work for you.
iPhoto stores its pictures in a bundle, which is a folder that looks like a file in the Finder. Inside this bundle is a special folder that will cause iPhoto to automatically import any images dropped into that folder.
We're going to "borrow" that folder to create our own iPhoto auto-import tool, and it's amazingly simple to do.
• Click on the Finder icon on your Dock
•From the open Finder window, click on the Pictures folder.
• Within the Pictures folder right click or control click on the iPhoto Library
icon (or folder) and select Show Package Contents
from the pop-up menu.
• In the new window that opens, you'll see a folder named Auto Import
• Next, Hold down Command
(which will force the Finder to create an alias
) and then drag Auto Import
to your Desktop
or other convenient storage location.
• Make sure you see the small arrow icon on the folder while dragging; this indicates that the Finder will, in fact, create an alias (like a shortcut to the actual application
) when you drop the folder.
• Once you've dropped the folder, that's it--feel free to rename the alias ("iPhoto Import folder" or whichever name you prefer), but you don't have to do that.
Now, whenever you want to import any of the affected,photos you have, just drop those photos into that into that new alias folder you've just created.
If iPhoto is open and active, it will import those dropped files immediately. If it's not running, the photos will be automatically imported the next time you launch the application.
If you get a lot of photos via e-mail or from the web, this is one of the easiest ways of importing them to iPhoto.
So give this a try and let me know if this workaround process is the fix you need at least to begin importing your photos into iPhoto for your user account.
I will be hoping for a good update from you with this procedure.
Thanks so much for being patient with me as I have worked to assist you.
