How do I import a goggle photo album into my iPhotos?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPhones?

Im on my iMac

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your iPhones? What troubleshooting have you tried?

My iMac runs OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

The google album came from my sons phone, not an iPhone. The album is in my email, but I want to import the photos into my photo library in order to make a Mac Photo book.

Ok, I've just got one quick clarifying question, and then I think we should be able to hone in on the answer you're looking for. Can you tell me the format that this album your son sent you is in? Google hosts a few different types of photo album, so I want to be sure we're using the right one - was it with picassa? Or maybe google drive? If you don't know, you can just paste the link here and I can sort it out.

Goggle Photo
Mac Support Specialist: Jeremy K, Mac Enthusiast replied 8 months ago
Great - this isn't too onerous of a process, essentially, you need to download all the photos from google photo to your local computer, then import these files into iPhoto. To download all photos simply navigate to the album in google photos click 3-dots > Download all. Google provides documentation on this process at (way too much) length here: https://sites.google.com/site/picasaresources/Home/Picasa-FAQ/google-photos-1/how-to/how-to-download-all-autobackupped-pictures.
Once those are all downloaded, simply drag the downloaded items into iPhoto and you should be set to go.

34;None of these photos can be downloaded on your computer."
I tried to drag them into iPhoto...
They are on my desktop but that is as far as I got.
Mac Support Specialist: Jeremy K, Mac Enthusiast replied 8 months ago

This is good news - getting them onto your PC was the hard part. If iPhoto isn't cooperating for dragging the photos in, there are a few other convenient ways to do it. Open iPhoto, then click on the File menu and choose "Import to Library". When the Import Photos box opens, navigate to your Desktop folder, select it and click the Import button. Let me know how you get on! And happy Thanksgiving!

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
