Force-quit Photos as recommended by Arsenal1607.
Make backup of your iPhoto Library and run the iPhoto Library First Aid tools to repair the permissions on your library and rebuild the iPhoto Library.
To launch the First Aid Tools hold down the  alt/option and the command key simultaneously while double clicking the iPhoto Library to launch the iPhoto Library First aid tools. You'd to hold down both keys firmly and long enough, until the First Aid panel will appear.
Try both the options "Repair Permissions" and "Rebuild library".  Then try again to migrate the iPhoto Library to Photos by dragging it onto the Photos icon in the Dock.
Make sure, you have plenty of free storage. Don't try the migration, if you are running out of storage.

  • How can I disable the Photos app from automatically running when I plug in my iPhone?

    How can I disable the Photos app from automatically running when I plug in my iPhone?
    I have no intention of ever using Photos, in fact, having to abandon Aperture takes me one step close to moving back to Windows, but I digress.
    I just want to NOT have to kill the Photos app every time I plug in my phone.
    Thanks.

    I am still seeing the option Image Capture, like shown in the screenshot that Rysz posted.   But it is another example of the hide-and-seek Apple likes to play with us.
    The option has to be set for each device individually. With the device connected to USB, you have to click the tiny disclosure triangle in the lower left corner of the sidebar to reveal the option.
    I was perfectly happy with the program I paid for (Aperture), and now to maintain the functionality I have to pay for another application (LightRoom) to get the functionality that I paid for in Aperture.
    Aperture 3.6 is working well with Yosemite. I will use it, as long as I have a Mac, that will run Yosemite or a compatible system.
    Have you looked at Capture One?  It looks much more similar to Aperture than Lightroom.

  • Ever since I have updated my software to iOS 7, I cannot download anything from the AppStore app and I have tried resetting my password and updating ITunes, but nothing works! Please help!

    Ever since I have updated my software to iOS 7, I cannot download anything from the AppStore app and I have tried resetting my password and updating ITunes, but nothing works! Also when I try to sink my mini with my iTunes account it says you cannot sync because the sync session failed to start.

    It sounds like to me you're trying to sync using the computer.
    Try these things and see if it helps before you try your next syncing session. If none of the things below work then you might consider trying to sync using iCloud only.
    Try a Restart. 
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
     Resetting your settings
    You can also try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your device settings again.... All of the settings in the settings app will have to be re-entered. You won't lose any data, but it takes time to enter all of the settings again.
    Resetting your device
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends this only if you are unable to restart it.
    Or if this doesn't work and nobody else on the blog doesn't have a better idea you can contact Apple. 
    Here is a link to their contacts with most of the information below.

  • Supposedly you can play or download songs using the icloud download button, a cloud icon with a downward arrow inside. But nothing happens when I click or double click on it.

    supposedly you can download or play songs using the icloud download button, a cloud icon with a downward arrow inside. But nothing happens when I click or double click on it.

    You have to have music in your iCloud account to do that...when you open the Music app on your iPad, for example, you can access all music from iCloud that you have already placed in the iCloud or associated with iCloud.  That is not for downloading music you have not already purchased or downloaded.

  • HT201302 How can I remove the photos after they've been imported to my phone?

    I thought I was importing my pictures from my old iphone to my new one and I ended up importing all the pictures that were saved on my computer.  How can I delete the pictures I don't want? 

    Sync your phone to your computer and then deselect sync all photos to your phone and that will delete them.

  • How can I know the new Material Master has been created?

    Does anyone have been tried about how to trigger the new Material Master has been created at a time interaval(maybe an hour or a day)?
    I want to transfer the new Material Master within a given period from SAP R/3 4.6C to .NET Application through standard BAPI or RFC and .NET Connector 2.0. How can I do?
    Any suggestion is wellcome. Thank You.

    Thank you Jiri Ehrlich for answering my question..
    I choose the third way as you suggest..
    ".. 3) Create your own ABAP function to export whole Material Master, call this function from your .NET application and do synchronizing on .NET side (so your .NET application will be RFC client).."
    I've tried RFC that retrieve Material Detail by using BAPI_MATERIAL_GETLIST. It works fine but if I want to retrive the new Material or modified within a given period of time(for example 15 or 30 minutes). How I can do? Is there any standard BAPI or RFC to call from .NET or I have to write new RFC.
    I have little background of ABAP so help me please. If I have to create new RFC, is there any ABAP Function to call or which table I can retrive those information.
    Anyone can suggest?? Thanks in advance

  • I downloaded the 30 day trial of CC - downloaded the app for Photoshop - but nothing happens when I click on it ... how do I get into it?

    I've downloaded Creative Cloud and the App for Photoshop  and updated the app -- but there's no way to click on the application to use it!  I seem to be missing something ... I don't know how to get into it to work on photos ...

    Peter,
    Apple doesn't sell iWork that way anymore.
    You have to get it from the Mac App Store if you want to purchase from Apple, or purchase a disk from a software retailler like Amazon. They're quite cheap online now.
    If you do purchase an iWork '09 disk, you will need to trash the trial copy and any plist files it has generated before you install it.

  • How can i delete a photo album that has been synced from another computer

    I am trying to delete a photo album that I do not need anymore from an iPad 4. But the album has been synced from a computer that I don't have access to anymore. Is there anyway around this ?

    Photos that were synced from a computer can only be deleted by connecting to a computer's iTunes and changing the sync selection on the device's Photos tab.
    Is that the only album that was synced from that computer (and you now sync the iPad to a different computer ?), or do you have other albums from it that you want to keep on the iPad ? If you want to keep one or more albums on it then they will need to be on the computer that you sync to so that they can be selected on the Photos tab and re-copied to the iPad from that computer. If you want to remove all synced photos then try selecting and syncing just an empty folder

  • How to find all the photos whose date has been modified?

    I have recently exported my entire collection of photos and I realized that (perhaps) some of the photos whose dates I have modified in iPhoto, have not been exported with the updated date but maybe the original dates.
    Is there a way for me to find all the photos whose dates I modified in iPhoto?

    no

  • HT5457 can anyone share more info about the Passbook feature.  seems like it would be useful, but nothing happens when i try to launch it on my iPhone

    how do you use the new passbook feature that appears on your iPhone with the new iSO6?  i cant seem to get it to launch, i have no ideas how to use it, it seems like it would be a great tool, HELP!

    You need to download apps that are compatible with passbook.  There are less than 20 available right now I'd say
    Such as:
    Target
    American Airlines
    Fandango
    Ticket Master
    If you click the link to the app store through passbook and get an error, use this article to fix it: http://www.macworld.com/article/2010185/fix-passbooks-app-store-error-in-ios-6.h tml
    You can also use this site: http://www.passsource.com/ to create your own cards such as Blockbuster card, petco card, petsmart card, etc
    To add to passbook once you've downloaded compatible apps try the following:
    So if you have the target app you need to go into the target app > my target> mobile coupons > scroll to bottom of page  and click "add to passbook"
    My assumption is that you need to add things to passbook through the target app or american airlines app and so on.
