Import/Export options from iPhoto Picture Disk?

I want to install several thousand photos onto my MacBook Pro from an iPhoto picture disk I created with another Mac, but I do not want to install them into the iPhoto library -- I will use Aperture instead. The only option I appear to have, however, is to import everything into iPhoto first and then export onto my HD, a very laborious process if I want to maintain the organization I have on the DVDs. Plus, iPhoto is cranky and probably will crash 5 times during the process, if experience is any guide. Does a way exist for me to copy my photos from the DVD into my HD folders without importing into iPhoto?
Thanks!

That might be better asked in the Aperture forum. Was this disk burned with v6 of iPhoto? If so, then here's how it's laid out:
There are three folders
Originals are the photos as they were downloaded from your camera or scanner.
(ii) Modified contains edited pics, shots that you have cropped, rotated or changed in any way.
(iii) Data holds the thumbnails the the app needs to show you the photos in the iPhoto Window.
So, ignore the Data and Modified folders, just drag the rolls from the Originals folder for your Original, unaltered shots.

  • Export pix from iPhoto 4.0.3 to a digital picture frame (Tiger OS)

    Can't succeed in downloading pix using a card reader. Desired pix moved to an album, then export selected. In dialog box, file export and album name are selected, jpg extension selected, pixel size changed and use extension is selected. The jpg file type and pixel size items conform to frame mfgr specs. The system proceeds to do something as the 100+ photos are supposedly transferred. After proper disconnection from the Mac, the Xd card is placed in the frame but no pix show up. In trying different sizes and extensions, the system prompts that these pictures already exist, as if the pictures are loaded into the card. I have tried creating a desktop file and dragging the album from iPhoto to the desktop with no success ( a subsequent move from the desktop to the card reader icon was planned). How can I be sure that the pix are on the card? How does the system know I want the pix to go on the card since it was never selected? Vince V

    Vince V,
    How does the system know I want the pix to go on the card since it was never selected?
    Any time you export files from iPhoto (or save files in a Save or Save As dialog box in another application) you have to designate a location for the exported (or saved) files. If you did not designate the Xd card as your location, then the system does not know you want the exports saved there. Where did your exports go? Can you do a Finder Search for them?
    Desired pix moved to an album, then export selected. In dialog box, file export and album name are selected, jpg extension selected, pixel size changed and use extension is selected.
    Did you remember to select all of the pix in the album before selecting export? It has been a very long time since I've used version 4, but in iPhoto 6 when you click the Export button in the dialog box you described it opens to a standard Mac Save As dialog box. That second box is where you specify the location for the exported files. Are you getting that dialog?
    I have tried creating a desktop file and dragging the album from iPhoto to the desktop with no success ( a subsequent move from the desktop to the card reader icon was planned).
    I would recommend a 2-part move, just as you describe here. What did happen when you tried to drag the photos to the desktop folder?
    Regards.

  • Exporting video from iPhoto to Desktop

    I take a video with my iPhone4.
    I download it to iPhoto (9.3.2) on my MBP Retina (Mtn Lion).
    I export it from iPhoto to my desktop.
    When I play it on my desktop (QT 10.2), I get no picture and no sound.
    What's happening?

    If you export as a Jpeg then you're telling it to export a movie as a still image. Jpeg is a format for photos, not video
    iPhoto performs no compression on video at all. It has no relevance to the issue at hand.

  • Why would I want to change JPEG quality of photos when exporting them from iPhoto?

    Why would I want to change JPEG quality of photos when exporting them from iPhoto?  Changing the quality of the print changes the size of the saved file and thus impacts the speed at which it is moved on the internet.  But other than size of the file, what is the advantage of changing the quality?

    I have no idea why you would want to do anything
    Some people want lower quality to reduce file size for different reasons
    It is an option - if you do pot want to do that do not use that option

    When you watch on your Mac, it is at or near HD 1920x1080 pixels (about 2 megapixels), depending on the resolution of your screen. Most photos today are 5 megapixels or greater, depending on your camera, but anything over 2 megapixels must be reduced when put in a video.
    When you create a DVD, you must further reduce it to 640x480, standard definition. This is about 0.3 megapixels. iDVD will do this for you.
    You can fix by creating an HD movie in iMovie. You can Share this using Share/Export Using QuickTime to an MP4 container using the h.264 codec. You can then put this movie on your PS3 using a USB thumb drive.
    That should give you good resolution.
    (NEVER MIND, YOU SAID PS2 not PS3, my apologies)

  • Exporting Fotos from IPhoto to Facebook

    ok I am using Iphoto version 6. I am having problems with exporting files from IPhoto to Facebook. The editing touches on the fotos do not show up on my facebook album.
    2 attempts:
    1st i tried to go to the Modified Folder, where my edited pictures are store through IPhoto, to upload. I did but once uploaded, the edits do not show.
    2nd attempt, i downloaded facebook editor Iphoto patch. And everytime i try to upload the fotos, my iphoto closes. like the support side said, i have found the application and went to view contents to delete the patch then reinstalled it. And still I cannot enter the program to upload my iphotos to facebook.
    Will someone please help me? Thanks

    The sure way is to select the photos and export them to a desktop folder (file menu ==> export) and upload using the Facebook web upload from that folder
    If you are having problems with the third party facebook iPhoto uploaded you should contact them for support

  • Since installing OS X 10.7.5 and iPhoto 9.4, I can no longer export photos from iPhoto.  I get a message that iPhoto quit while using the HPPhotoExport plugin.

    Since installing OS X 10.7.5 and iPhoto 9.4, I can no longer export photos from iPhoto.  I get a message that "iPhoto quit unexpectedly while using the HPPhotoExport plugin."

    Trash the HPPHoto Export Plugin
    /Library/Application Support/iPhoto/*/HPPhotoExport
    Remember you have two Libraries:
    HD/Library and
    HD/Users/Your Name/ Library
    On 10.7: Hold the option (or alt) key while clicking on the Go menu in Finder to access the User Library
    It may be in either.

  • How to import Originals only from iPhoto?

    Hello! I'm thinking about to switch from iPhoto to Aperture.
    I'd like to import only the "originals" from iPhoto 08, let all the modified files alone, just to kind of start from scratch with post processing afterwards if needed (this is a) to avoid the doubled files, b) to get better pictures because of better software and knowledge).
    I read alot in this forum - wow, thanks for all the shared wisdom! I did not find the answer to my question.
    One more question: Can I import the "events" from iPhoto so, that they stay sorted the same way??
    Thanks for any help!

    As a workaround I set all pictures in iPhoto back to original, then imported the whole library. So far for me the question is answered

  • Exporting slideshow from iphoto to idvd /message says" disc is full"

    when exporting slideshow from iphoto to idvd /message says" disc is full" It is a new mac with 2gb extra memory. I have cleared out all extraneous files, so there should be room on the disc. Help, this is a student''s work and would love to help them burn the dvd slideshow.

    IS this your Hard Disk is full?
    OS X needs about 10 gigs of HD space to function normally. It uses this space for things like Virtual Memory and temporary files and other OS operations.

    How did you do this? Did you empty the trash?

  • IMovie doesn't import all movies from iPhoto - at least one solution

    I noticed that iMovie 08 imported my movies from iPhoto, but strangely not all of them. A quick search of the support forums indicated many others were having the same issue.
    After comparing file attributes of movies that were importing successfully into iMovie versus movies that didn't show up, I found that a rogue character ("&") was preventing iMovie from importing the file properly.
    Renaming the title in iPhoto does not resolve the issue, since the file name (in Finder) remains the same. However, if I make a copy of that file outside of the iPhoto Library, rename it in Finder, then re-import it back into iPhoto, then iMovie will see it. I didn't rename the movie file inside of the iPhoto Library for fear of corrupting the library structure.
    I found this to work at least with my .avi files. I still have the same issue as everyone else with iMovie not importing .mpg files that play properly in iPhoto.

    +I didn't rename the movie file inside of the iPhoto Library for fear of corrupting the library structure.+
    Good thinking! The only way to change the filename in iPhoto is to export the movie file, import it back in, copy over comments, keywords from the old to the new movie, and then delete the old movie.

    Not using the correct structure. Camera's use a very exact structure and the only way the camera will see photos on the card is for them to be in that exact structure
