I am moving all my iphoto pictures to seperate folders outside of iphoto.  I have found iphoto slighlty cumbersome.  After I move all pictures from iphoto to a separate file how can I delete all the iphoto photos without deleting the ones in the file?

I am moving all of my iphoto pictures into seperate folders becuase iphoto is great, but a bit cumbersome when I need to transfer all the pictures to a external drive.
1) After I move all pictures, how can I delete the iphoto pictures without destroying the ones I have in files
2) how can I ensure that I have sucessfully captures all the iphoto files so when I delelte from iphoto I have not forgotten any
3) is there a way to determine what duplicate pictures I have?
Thanks!

If you Control click on the iPhoto Library, you'll see a list of folders - one named "Masters". Inside of this folder are all of your original, high-res photos. You can copy them to other folders if you like.
You can't delete iPhoto pics without deleting the ones in the iPhoto Library.
You can copy all of your Masters pics out of the Library, ensuring that you won't forget any.
I don't know of anyway to determine if there are duplicate photos - most (if not all) have a unique name assigned.
Good luck,
Clinton

    Not true at all.
    You only buy the right to your own personal use.

    This is illegal.  There is no doubt about it

  • My daughter has a new ipod touch and when synced it had all of my iphone contacts. she deleted the ones she didn't want and they were removed from my phone as well. How can I get them back if they were deleted from the cloud? I also had them on my pc

    My daughter bought a new ipod touch and when synced received the contacts from my iphone. She deleted the ones she didn't want on her ipod and now they are gone from my iphone. I have the cloud and i thought back up on itunes. I have tried to re-sync and no luck. How can I get my contacts back?

    Your problem is that she used your icloud ID to connect to icloud and thus had all your data synced to her device.  Contacts are not saved in a backup to icloud, since they are stored independently in the Contacts section of icloud.  If someone deletes them, they are gone.  If you had them on the PC would they be available in some backup you frequently make of the PC?

    You will need that library copied from the old computer. If not, then you can take a look at this in getting 3rd party software to recover your library from the iPod. Syncing to a "New" Computer or replacing a "crashed" Hard Drive

  • I'm upgrading from iPad2 to iPad air.  how can I transfer all my data and apps from one to the other?

    Hi, I'm upgrading from my iPad2 to the iPad Air.  What is the most painless way to transfer all my data from one device to another?
    I have iannotate, which I've just found out is no longer syncing via iCloud (I thought that's what I was paying all that storage for) and a lot of catalogued PDF's on it.  Is there any other way besides plugging it in to my old Mac via iTunes to do the transfer?

    Favor the route via iTunes and local storage on the computer. MUCH faster than any cloudy backup, no matter the speed of your Internet connection. No network beats the speed of a hard drive. Just make sure there's enough room on the computer before you start, must contain all that's on the iGadget.

  • HT1444 How can I upgrade my system 10.4 into a newer one or the latest I could get for my machine?

    I currently have Mac OS X V. 10.4.11 and there are some things I'm unable to use on my computer, Adobe flash player being one of them, so I figured why not upgrading my software into the latest I could get? However I have no clue how can this be done, or if it can be done?
    I'll appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    Upgrade to Leopard
    Those wishing to upgrade to Leopard should be aware that install disks can be expensive unless you contact Apple. Details: http://lowendmac.com/deals/best-os-x-leopard-prices.html Standard Leopard installers impose several hardware limitations including speed and RAM size but all these restrictions can be overcome. Google for details. Leopard works well at 500 MHz with 1 GB of RAM and many happy users have less than this.
    Upgrade beyond Leopard
    OSs beyond OS X 10.5.8 require an Intel processor. If in doubt check this: Click the apple at the top left of your screen and select 'About this Mac'. This will give you your OS number. Then click 'More Info' to see which processor you have. If it says PowerPC you cannot upgrade to Snow Leopard and above. If you have an Intel Mac it is well worth upgrading to Snow Leopard now and then considering other options after that. You can buy Snow Leopard here: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A

    Not linking to the Thread to highlight there is one whilst emailing me is a bit like queue jumping.
    As you can see I do read everything eventually during each evening I spend here.
    I will keep to the email and only post here if I find the answer.  The answer should be shared.

  • I have an iPad 3 and when trying to print Pages documents from EpsoniPrint there is a border, how can I get it to print normal without sending it to my Mac?

    I have both quickoffice and pages on my iPad, and when I try to print from either of those through EpsoniPrint they don't print "normal".  And pages prints with a border around it.  How can I adjust that or is there a better app for printing via wireless?  I have an epson 510, so it's wireless capable but not AirPrint.

    If you have a Mac I would recommend that your install Printopia. Here is a link to it:
    http://www.ecamm.com/mac/printopia/
    With Printopia, any printer that you can connect to your Mac will appear on your iPad as long as they are on the same wi-fi network. Try Printopia to see if that border goes away. Good luck!

  • If i have deleted my local files, how can i download all my files at once from the creative cloud server?

    Hi,
    My creative cloud files have all been deleted on my machine, all put in the trash (not by me!) I've recovered some but I want to download everything from the creative cloud server before I sync again.  is there anyway to do this? or do I have to download every single file individually, which would take hours......
    I can see all my files on the cloud server but can't figure out why it has dumped all my local files in the trash.
    Thanks!

    Just to add that, I had exactly the same issue this morning, so it is certainly a more widespread problem rather than an isolated case.
    For Adobe's benefit, here's a summary of what happened for me:
    All cloud files automatically moved to trash on turning my computer on and auto syncing. All folders remained, but empty.
    Files still existed online through the browser, in the Files section and had not been put into Archive.
    When I got home to my personal Mac, the exact same situation happened as above. Though I made sure to do a backup before connecting to wifi and allowing it to sync!
    Tried signing out and deleting the Creative Cloud files folder, then signing in again, hoping it would re-sync and create all my files again to match what was online, but it just created the directory of empty folders again.
    Was on a call with support for an hour which was painful, with them taking control of my screen but having no idea what to do to fix it.
    As with you guys, I'd like to download all my files again (not including Archive), but as a batch and not one by one online! Hopefully the sync will fix and download the lot again automatically.
    Have you worked out what's wrong yet Adobe?
    Thanks

  • How can I reformat my Mac OS partition without deleting my bootcamp Windows?

    Hi all, I recently feel that my mac OSX - Snow leopard I pressume, version 10.6.8 is running a tad slower than it previous does. Hence I'm thinking about reformatting it. However, as I have booted Windows in a separate partition, I've no clue on how to do a clean reformat without removing windows. I believe it should be pretty simple but I'm clueless about such IT tech matters so I appreciate any help and advice that comes along!

    You don't need to do anything special but should make a backup first.

  • How can I plot two plots with two different Y axis,one on the left and one on the right ?(double axis)

    I have read many similar questions  on the forum but I see no best ways . I use DAQ card .LabVIEW 8.0, to measure two signals at the same time  ( ex: intensity mA (autorange),temperature:0-400oC) and I want to plot them on the same graph. I used stack plots without problems,but it doesnot satisfy me . Help me.

    Ok, I did all as you told me. I got the graph that I want to create. I got two curve on the same graph but the scale is not right. Only on one Y axis the scale is correct, the other is not . ( I want to use one Y axis : 0 to 400, the other :0-10 (or autoscaleY)). The attached screen shot shows that. It is no problem when I use stack plot. Thanks.

  • How can I remove all returns within the text?

    I copied and pasted text onto pages from the internet, but the text does not go all the way to the end of the set margins that i have on Pages, instead it goes about halfway or so and begins on a new line. how can i remove all of the spaces between the words so that it runs the full length of the page.
    It blows my mind that i have to resort to seeking help on the apple forums for this problem, it seems like something so simple would be a standard feature when adjusting text on the page. The only thing that could frustrate me more is if it impossible to do on this software, or if it is simple to do and I was too stupid to figure it out. If it is impossible then I'm **** out of luck because the document is just to **** long to sit there for hours and manually delete every single last return.

    Not to preempt your fun of playing with AppleScript, but here's my take on it:
    tell application "Pages"
        tell document 1
            -- Make sure there's no selection
            select insertion point before character 1
            set cc to count characters of body text
            set returnOffsets to (character offset of every character where it is return)
            -- Reverse order, since deletion would alter all subsequent offsets
            repeat with n in reverse of returnOffsets
                if (n > 1) then
                    if n < cc and character (n + 1) is return then
                        -- Treat double returns as a true paragraph break.
                        -- Delete the extra.
                        delete character n
                    else if character (n - 1) ≠ return then
                        -- Change single returns into spaces.
                        set character n to " "
                    end if
                end if
            end repeat
        end tell
    end tell
