Can't import jpeg photos into iPad

Can't figure out why some of my scanned jpeg photos can be imported into my iPad through iTunes and others can't. the message I get is "holiday.jpeg was not copied to the iPod because it cannot be played on this iPod." Any ideas?

I would recommend you try one tool called ipad magic:

  • Suddenly can't import any photos into iPhoto!

    Suddenly and inexplicably, I cant import any photos into my iPhoto program. iPhoto has worked fine for years. Now, all of a sudden, no matter how I try to import them (either from my desktop, or from my digital camera), I get the error message: Couldn't create: /Volumes/name of external drive/iPhoto Library/2006/08/21/name of photo. When I click "OK" on the error message dialogue box, I then get the error message "Unreadable files: 1 The following files could not be imported (they may be an unrecognized file type or the files may not contain valid data)." I am reasonably certain that of the 250 or so J-Peg photos I'm presently trying to import, from 2 different cameras, ALL of them can't be corrupt.
    First, I tried repairing my disk permissions on my G4. Then, I tried reinstalling iLife 5.0.2. Then I tried reinstalling the OSX 10.3.9 combo pack, and iPhoto 5.0.4. Then I tried again repairing my disk permissions with disk utility. All proved useless to solve the problem.
    I also tried dragging my iPhoto preferences to the trash. But I found to my horror that this action completely obliterates all of my iPhoto albums and photo groupings. I did not attempt to import any new photos once I discovered this, as I was fearful doing so might render my loss of my albums permanent. So I retrieved my old preferences from the trash, thus saving my albums and groupings, but also keeping the original importing problem.
    What can I do to fix this importing problem without obliterating my albums and groupings? Lots of work has gone into the grouping and categorizing of my albums and photos. Though it would be easy to reimport all of my photos, I would not want to begin to take the time to recreate all of my albums and groupings from scratch. Is there any way these groupings can be preserved? If not, there should be! It's idiotic to think that Apple might not consider all of the time the grouping of albums and songlists represents to the typical user of iPhoto or iTunes.
    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

    I've found a solution to this problem, thankfully. But it didn't come via rebuilding the iPhoto library.
    I didn't want to to a manual rebuild of my original iPhoto library, since I was cautioned that it would involve losing my albums and all notations and filings I'd made concerning my photos. Before I first tinkered with the library, I made a backup copy of the original-defective library onto another external drive. Then I did one more complete "automatic rebuild" of the original/defective library, and found to my horror that the library wouldn't even open any more. It would send up an error message when I'd try to click on it's icon to open the library.
    I went back to the backup copy of my iPhoto library (containing all of my albums, groupings, and etc.) and did what I hadn't thought to do in the first place: I simply attempted to import photos (my original difficulty) into this backup iPhoto library. It worked perfectly!!! All photos imported into this backed up copy as if it were the original. And now that I have trashed my "original" and totally defective former iPhoto library, this backup copy is now my new iPhoto library.
    I guess whatever was wrong with the old library was shaken out just by making a backup copy. I'm afraid that's about as technical an explanation as I can offer. But maybe doing the same process will help another of you suffering from a similar problem with importing photos. Anyway, a hearty thanks to everyone who responded to this original query of mine. Mac users are truly the best!!! Cheers!

  • How can I import newer photos into 7.1.5?

    My daughter burned a cd of photos from her version of iPhoto "09", 8.1.2 for me.
    I am using 7.1.5 and iPhoto will not allow me to import the photos into my library. When I try this there is an alert saying I can't import this version - then my only option is to quit iPhoto!
    HELP, is there a work around???

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Try the following:
    1 -open the CD by clicking on it.
    2 - open the folder titled "Library" by double clicking on it.
    3 - drag the "Originals" folder to the Desktop.
    4 - launch iPhoto and drag the Originals folder from the Desktop into iPhoto's open window.
    This will import just the original photo files in the same Rolls as they were in your daughter's library. You WILL NOT get any of the keywords, titles or modified versions of those photos.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier versions) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    NOTE: this is not the same as routinely backing up your entire iPhoto library folder to protect your photos. It only protects the loss of your organizational efforts that the database file contains.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. There are versions that are compatible with iPhoto 5, 6, 7 and 8 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    NOTE: The new rebuild option in iPhoto 09 (v. 8.0.2), Rebuild the iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup" makes this tip obsolete.

  • Can I import a photo into a specific event folder?

    When I import a photo into iPhoto 11 it goes into the latest import folder.
    Then I have to drag these photos all over the event screen to get them into the folder I want
    Is there a way to get iPhoto to import into a specific event folder?
    Sorry if this is basic but I don't know the answer

    Greetings Mark,
    When you import photos into iPhoto they go into Events on the left hand side.  They also temporarily show up in the Last Import section but this changes each time you do an import.
    Events are created based on when you import the images.  You cannot control which event the images go into as this process is handled by iPhoto in the background.  You can move images from one event to another if you like once the import is complete.
    If you use Albums (type in the word Albums in the help menu for more details) you could drag images from the desktop directly into an Album and that image will be added.
    You might find this help menu video on Events useful:
    Hope that helps.

  • Need help - can't import some photos into iPhoto - getting error msg

    I have a lot of photos on my computer. Most of them are in my iPhoto, but I can't seem to load all of the photos in there and integrate them al. I am getting an error message. The jist of the message is that they are unreadable and that they cannot be imported. The photos are jpegs. I am kind of at a loss as to why these photos are not getting imported.
    Does it have anything to do with where the photos were taken from? What I mean is that when I have current photos on the camera, they will go directly to iPhoto. What about the ones that are copied to my hard drive from another computer? Those I can't seem to integrate into my library. An suggestions? Thanks.

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions.
    Are these troublesome files in the iPhoto Library Folder? Are you putting files in there hoping to see them in iPhoto?
    iPhoto is a database, the images have to be imported (File -> Add to Library) before they can be seen. Also, as a precaution against duplication, iPhoto will not import pics from the iPhoto Library Folder, so move them out to the desktop and then import them.

  • Can we import RAW photos into iphoto?

    My brother-in-law has many photos from past reunions that are in RAW format. Can we import these into iphoto and have it work? I really want the photos but he thinks it won't work.
    What are the steps? He says the file sizes are very large

    That's not enough.
    The Raw format of each camera model - not make, model - is different. So the Raw of the Nikon D40 is not the same as the Raw from a D60, which is different from the D80 and so on.
    But hey, have you tried plugging it in and seeing if it will import?

  • Can't import new photos into lightroom 4, any help?

    I have macbook pro, a external HD with all my RAW files in a folder called 2013, I imported edited and export 2 photos into the same external folder, using lightoroom 4. Now I wanted import the others but they all grey out and there's no import button to import, any ideia what's i'm doing wrong?

    Take my apologize for the delay doceddy. This issue is 90 percent permissions related. But one thing is confusing in this. If it would be permission issue it should not affect for example the desktop folder. .
    1 / Create a floder TEST on the desktop.
    2/ Use the transfer method which you normally to download the rwas from your cam. Put few raws into the TEST folder.
    3/ Run Lightroom and try to import those in TEST.
    4/ If it does not work: highlight the test folder - right click - properties - check if there is read only attribute.
    5/ If it so - try to put the blue marker from this box away and click apply.
    6/ After this close the dialogue (the operation will run some small time). Then do it again if your system allowed you to apply the change. So second time should be the attribut away. If it is start Lightroom and try to import again from TEST.
    7/ Give me some feedback then please - I will suggest you some other steps if it does not work.
    Good Luck

  • Can't import landscape photos into iWeb

    I've started up iWeb for the first time in ages, and suddenly find I can't drag and drop landscape-oriented photos onto any page. Portrait photos are fine, but the landscape ones appear as a box with the file name inside and no image.
    This happens when I drag and drop from the media tool bar and when I share photos from iPhoto using the "share > send to iweb" command from the toolbar.
    If I try to drag and drop direct from iPhoto, I get this message:
    "The media can’t be used because you don’t have access privileges, or because it has no content or is corrupt."
    I'm the only user of this macbook, so not sure how access privileges are involved...
    I'm stumped! Grateful for any help or suggestions.

  • I have imported a jpeg photo into iPhoto and cannot get the Places map to let me fix a position on the map. It remains disabled for my photo. Checking out the Help file has not given any solution.

    I have imported a jpeg photo into iPhoto  and cannot get the Places map tp show. I have tried the Help file and the information was not helpful. Can anyone give advice here?

    I am using iPhoto 9.1.1. When I select thephoto, then Places I get the window (Places to lookup disabled). When I hit theInfo button I get the size an JPEG notification, and  Faces and Key words. The “reverse” of thepicture shows a window with Rotate, Hide, Trash etc.
    When I select Places, get the Google worldmap, and this case a pin on Sydney Australia showing that eighteen photos arecorrectly placed. I am unable to make the connection to San Francisco wherethis particular photo was taken on a very modern camera.

  • Can you import more pictures into a photo book that is already in work?

    Can you import more pictures into a photo book that is already in work? I have already spent many hours trying to create a photo album but came across more pictures to choose from. However, I don't know how to get these new pictures into the "list" of potential photos for the book in progress. I can't stand the thought of having to start over by selecting the 2000 photos plus these new ones and starting all over again!?!

    I have found more pictures that I want to include. They are, say, in a folder on my desktop. I can't simply pull a picture (or the folder) from the desktop and insert it into the album or the list of potential pictures across the top.
    to import into an existing book (which is just a special kind of album) simply drag the photos from their source (the desktop in your example) to the book in the source pane on the left (not to the book in the library window but the book icon in the source pane
    Likewise to use photos from your iPhoto library just drag them from the library to the book
    I also tried imported the pictures, from the desktop folder, into iphoto, creating new event. I don't think there is a way of accessing that new event from the album in work/progress.
    Likewise to use photos from your iPhoto library just drag them from the library to the book in the source pane on the left
    I also tried merging the new "event" into an existing event that I had selected for the album. That doesn't work either???
    That is correct - there is no connection between the source of the book and the book - the book stands alone and you add direct to it in the source pane exactly as you would add to any other album

  • How can I import psd photos from Elements into iPhoto?

    I cannot import psd photos into iPhoto without saving them to the desktop, which is a real hassle (hundreds of photos).  Am I doing something incorrectly?  Thanks for any advice.

    I may be preaching to the choir here but this might be of help to you:
    Using Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) as Your Editor of Choice in iPhoto.
    1 - select Photoshop as your editor of choice in iPhoto's General Preference Section's under the "Edit photo:" menu.
    Click to view full size
    2 - double click on the thumbnail in iPhoto to open it in Photoshop.  When you're finished editing click on the Save button. If you immediately get the JPEG Options window make your selection (Baseline standard seems to be the most compatible jpeg format) and click on the OK button. Your done.  3 - however, if you get the navigation window
    Click to view full size
    that indicates that  PS wants to save it as a PS formatted file.  You'll need to either select JPEG from the menu and save (top image) or click on the desktop in the Navigation window (bottom image) and save it to the desktop for importing as a new photo.
    This method will let iPhoto know that the photo has been editied and will update the thumbnail file to reflect the edit..
    NOTE: With Photoshop Elements 9 or later the Saving File preferences should be configured as shown:
    Click to view full size
    I also suggest the Maximize PSD File Compatabilty be set to Always.  In PSE’s General preference pane set the Color Picker to Apple as shown:
    Click to view full size
    NOTE: If you want to use both iPhoto's editing mode and PS without having to go back and forth to the Preference pane, once you've selected PS as your editor of choice, reset the Preferences back to "Open in main window".  That will let you either edit in iPhoto (click on the Edit button) or in PS (Control-click on the thumbnail and select "Edit in external editor" in the Contextual menu).  This way you get the best of both worlds.

  • I can't import vertical photos to my iPad using the camera connection kit. Horizontal photos import without a problem, but verticals have a red exclamation mark. Help?!

    I can't import vertical photos to my iPad using the camera connection kit. Horizontal photos import fine, but verticals have a red exclamation mark, and do not import. Help!?

    I have the same problem and apple needs to fix this - but in the mean time you can manually select the vertical photos then "import - import selected" and you can get your verticals. We need a better fix. THIS IS A BUG!

  • After I import the photos into light room from a folder, the deveop module cannot be accessed? What can I do to process those photos that are on my hard driive?

    After I import the photos into light room from a folder, the deveop module cannot be accessed? What can I do to process those photos that are on my hard driive?

    If you are using a standalone version of Lightroom, you may have updated with the CC-licensed update. That will not work. If this is your situation then it will be necessary for you to uninstall Lightroom and then install an update from a different website. Assuming that you are using Lightroom 5, this is where you need to download from:
    Product updates
    After you make the change you will be able to continue from where you left off. The switchover does not affect your images or your catalog.
