Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Is there a large X over the greyed out portion?

What version of mac do you have?

What version of iPhoto are you using?

Good evening Isaac
Have attached image I've just taken off my Mac.
Mac version is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6
It's Photos not iPhotos, an upgrade changed the format last year some time. Version 1.5 (370.42.0)
I've gotten around this by dragging and dropping onto desktop and uploading from there but I have multiple photo albums I'd like to upload into my Facebook business page and of course that's not a practical solution for lots of images.
Hope this helps.

By the way my initial payment said it would be £3 but full payment of £25 was taken
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

5 dollars is a good faith deposit. The other portion was for the question itself. Once an expert

responds the amount is taken out fully. When you rate after you get an answer/resolved, by

using the stars above, the expert will get a portion of the question value. That is how the system works.

As for you question, sorry. The original question said iPhoto. So, it is a folder you are not able to open pictures from?

How are you trying to access it? Through a folder on your pc, iCloud storage etc? Where are you importing photos to?

When you say import, do you mean upload?

Are you referring to importing from iPod to your pc (from the image you sent)?

Sorry for the confusion. It's Photo not IPhoto.
When using my Mac and on, say, Facebook, i am unable to upload a photo as when the options come up as in the image I sent you, Photo Is greyed out so I can't access the images I have in Photo.
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Here is what i want you to try for me. Try doing it this way by the steps in the link below:

I will try that Isaac though don't have time to do so at the moment. However, this doesn't actually let me know why Photo is greyed out in the first place.
Mac Support Specialist: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

From my understanding, it doesn't work that way. What you showed me would be selecting a library file.

The method above is the correct way to upload individual/several photos. Let me know what happens and we will

investigate further.

Hello Francesca and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will continue to assist you.

I first of all would like to know if you would be interested in my offering you a Premium" remote service? This is a secure remote session that allows me to see your screen and while you watch work on your issue. It will cost a little more money, but the resolution often is obtained much faster.

If you would rather continue working via this chat session that is fine too, but I wanted to give you the option.

I await your reply and thanks in advance.

Thanks for the offer but as this process hasn't been as quick to a solution as I had hoped I'm getting a local technician to come and visit me on site
Mac Support Specialist: comp_audio, Mac Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

I am sorry that we could not be of better service. If you would like to save a little money I could most likely fix this for you before they come out. In the event I cannot then you will be able to get a full refund because we offer a guarantee of an acceptable answer. If you still would like to cancel this request just let me know and I will send you the instructions on how to submit for a full refund. Thanks in advance.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
