HT2506 I use Preview to edit photos, and would like to know if there are any Preview updates in the works. I find there is a problem with Preview crashing, or taking a very long time to "catch up" (spinning beachball of death) while I'm editing.

I use Preview to edit photos, and would like to know if there are any updates to this program in the works. It seems Apple is constantly updating its software, except for Preview. I find it crashes all too often, and also takes forever to "catch up" with me (as in spinning beachball of death) when I'm editing a lrge amount of photos. Yes, I know I should be using Photoshop or somesuch, but it's just too **** confusing, and I don't have the time to figure it out. Thanks!!

Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
Step 1
Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
View ▹ Show Log List
from the menu bar.
Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.
Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
Step 2
In the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the crashed process. The report name starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

  • I have MACOSX 10.5.8 and Firefox says I do not have the latest software. Even if I don't , Im currently using Firefox 3.5.4 and would like a newer version. Basically how do I download the latest version of Firefox for my computer? Thanks

    I am using a PowerBook and have recently upgraded to 10.5.8 and would like to get the latest version of Firefox I can. However, FF's home page says 'unfortunately the latest version of FF is not compatible'. But when I look at the requirements it seems that mine should fit. Basically, what is the latest version of FF I can get and how do I find it to download.
    Thanks

    Right now I am trying to reinstall Firefox which was somehow deleted and I keep getting the message that I can not use the new version I have downloaded. I have a power PC G5 and Mac OSX10.5.8. This is frustrating. What do I do?

  • Every single time I try to load any page (even this one where I'm asking), it keeps either crashing or taking a very long time with "Not responding" windows status

    Whenever I try to load a page, let's say: Hotmail, or Youtube or even this one (support.mozilla.com) the window gets frozen and the "Not responding" status displays on the Title bar... then after a minute or two, either loads the page or it just crashes...

    The CrashIDs are what is needed. Do not attempt to attach or paste the reports.

  • I have edited photos in i-photo and would like to have them printed.  How do i burn them to disc in a format that a windows PC system can read.  I am in India and this is definitely "microsoft" country!  thanks for taking the time to guide me.

    I have edited photos in i-photo and would like to have them printed at any photo development lab.  I am in India and this is definitely "microsoft" country !
    Please advise me how to burn these edited photos to a disc to take to the nearest printing store in a format that "windows" system can understand.
    Thanks in advance.  I look forward to learning about this. 

    Select the pics in the viPhoto Window and go File -> Export and export them to a folder on the desktop. Burn that to disk with the Finder's burn command. Result. A disk with a folder of images that any machine can understand.

  • Is there any way to connect time capsule to a MacBook Pro directly via USB. I have a large amount of data that I want to back up and it is taking a very long time (35GB is taking 3 hrs, I have 2TB if files in total)...)?

    Perhaps via USB. I have a large amount of data that I want to back up and it is taking a very long time (35GB is taking 3 hrs, I have 2TB if files in total)...? I want to use TimeCapsule as back-up for an archive which is curently stored on a 2 TB WESC HD. 

    No, you cannot backup via direct usb connection..
    But gigabit ethernet is much faster anyway.. are you connected directly by ethernet?
    Is the drive you are backing up from plugged into the TC? That will slow it down something chronic.. plug that drive in by its fastest connection method.. WESC sorry I have no idea. If ethernet use that.. otherwise USB direct to the computer.. always think what way the files come and go.. but since you are copying from the computer everything has to go that way.. it makes things slower if they go over the same cable.. if you catch the drift.

  • I just got an iPhone 5 32GB and i have backed up my old 3GS 32GB via itunes (20GB of data on there) and it is taking a very long time to restore to my iPhone5. Its taken more than 20 hours and says 12 hours remaining. The text "Time remaining" flickers.

    I just got an iPhone 5 32GB and i have backed up my old 3GS 32GB via itunes (20GB of data on there) and it is taking a very long time to restore to my iPhone5. Its taken more than 20 hours and didnt complete.
    The text "Time remaining ... hours" flickers.
    I set it to start restoring from the 3GS backup yesterday at 1pm and the time remaining kept on increasing. I left it overnight and at 9am this morning the progress bar hadnt moved and it said 12 hours remaining.
    I don't know why its taking so long. I unplugged it and it just set up as new phone. So i did a factory reset and tried again at 4pm and it is now 12am and it says 4 hours remaining and my computer occasionally flickers. (Its not a bad computer, 2 months old, i7, 6GB RAM, Heaps of HDD space). It also messes with google chrome and i cannot browse the web at all while it is trying to restore my iphone.
    I have tried restarting my laptop and should i reinstall itunes? I simply dont see why it should take longer than 20 hours to copy over 20GB of data!
    Can anyone help me?
    Thank you

    I'm having this EXACT same problem with my iPhone 4, and I have the same computer stats (I have a Samsung Series 7)

  • Downloads of zip and other files are taking a very long time.

    Prior to this week, downloads of zip files and other types of files were pretty fast; however, downloads are suddenly taking a very long time (i.e. 30 minutes to download an album's worth of music files). It's possible that I may have deleted something that was necessary to download files quickly, but I'm not sure. Can anyone provide suggestions on how to get my download groove back? Thanks!

    Hi beaubeck,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!
    Resetting the modem/router and trying with an ethernet cable (wired) vs. wireless would be two good troubleshooting steps.  More details are included in the article below:

  • Trying to download Windows 7 version of ITunes and it is taking a very long time is this normal?*

    I have been trying to download Windows 7 version of ITunes to my computer and it seems to be taking a very long time.  Is this normal?  It has been stuck on 1hr 4mins at 25% for over an hour.  Is there an easier way to get Itunes or is this the only way to wait for hours for the download?

    It shouldn't take more than a few minutes.  Did you download directly from Apple:

  • HT1414 iPhone restore is taking a very long time

    I was prompted to restore my iPhone  on iTunes... It's taking a very long time, is this normal?

    If you are restoring from a backup and you had lots of photos inside the camera roll, it might take longer to restore.
    If you are using iTunes on your computer and setting it back to factory settings, without using a backup, it should not take that long if the software had already been downloaded to your computer.

  • Messages are taking a very long time to send.

        Hello, I'm currently having a big problem with messages taking a very long time to actually send. The spinning wheel will stay there for hours. It only happens in one or two skype groups at a time where I can send messages normally in other groups. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

    I have been having this problem for the last 4 releases. I have had some take up to 8 hours to send before. I can usually fix it by signing out then restarting skype. Just restarting skype doesn't work, nor does just signing in again.
