Iphoto export to facebook problem

The iphoto exporter tool sent x rated pictures to my Facebook account instead of my photos. Why did that happen? I restarted everything and now everything is okay. Do I have a virus on my computer that I need to remove? Where did the [email protected] pictures come from?

There are no known viruses in the wild for the Mac so it is unlikely that you have one
Unless those **** photos are somewhere on your Mac then the problem is on the Facebook side - maybe someone has hacked your facebook account

  • Facebook Problems - Different than iPhoto

    Hi, sorry for the long post!!!
    First, I'm new to Aperture and was planning on moving from iPhoto.  I was testing and have noticed a lot differences when enbabling Facebook inetgration that has now raised a number of questions & concerns.
    First, with iPhoto - connecting to your facebook account sync's all existing albums but doesn't put those images in the library, whereas, when doing the same in Aperture, it does.  The first problem is that if you decide to import the picture that Aperture synced from Facebook, it doesn't show up, if you have don't allow duplicates checked.  The problem is the file is not the same size and further more, if you delete it from your library, it removes it from facebook and won't allow you to undelete (or put back) from the trash.
    I guess the bottomline is Facebook integration is really different from iPhoto and unless you only have 1 copy of Aperture and start using Facebook only when you start with Aperture, it might all work right.  In my case, I have multiple computers running Aperture and have already sync'd some photos with iPhoto and Facebook.
    This is probably not easy to follow and maybe looking for any references on how the Facebook integration with Aperture is really designed to work and the workflow associated with it.
    Thanks,

    I was having the same problems. I think it is a problem with the way Facebook blocks applications.
    I solved the problem by clicking on the iPhoto Uploader hyperlink in the uploader box, telling Facebook to Block the iPhoto Uploader application. I then went back to iPhoto and attempted to upload a photo. After the login screen all I got was a screen that said close. I did this, then went back to the iPhoto Uploader option in Facebook and told it to Allow the application. Then when I selected pictures in iPhoto and clicked on the Facebook button, I logged in as before and was presented with the option to publish the picture.
    Now everything works .... my guess is that facebook was rejecting the request from iPhoto to publish, but fails to show an error message. The solution is to disallow then allow the iPhoto Application from Facebook (using the hyperlink in the iPhoto Uploader login box.)

    I'm having problems with iPhoto and the facebook set-up.  Every time I attempt to do so it says an error has occured and try again later.  I have not seen a solution posted.  Therefore, how does one contact Apple to solve the problem?  I'm new to the world of iMac but I find it a bit frustrating trying to solve basic issues/problems:(

    For what it's worth, you posted this in 2011, and here in 2014 I am still having this same issue. Over the last two days, I have had to unlock my apple account 8 times. I didn't get any new devices. I haven't initiated a password reset. I didn't forget my password. I set up two factor authentication and have been able to do the unlocking with the key and using a code sent to one of my devices. 
    That all works.
    It's this having to unlock my account every time I go to use any of my devices. And I have many: iMac, iPad, iPad2, iPad mini, iPhone 5s, iPod touch (daughter), and my old iPhone 4 being used as an ipod touch now.  They are all synced, and all was working just fine.
    I have initiated an incident with Apple (again) but I know they are just going to suggest I change my Apple ID. It's a simple one, and one that I am sure others think is theirs. I don't want to change it. I shouldn't have to. Apple should be able to tell me who is trying to use it, or at least from where.
    Thanks for listening,
    Melissa

  • Can't export from iphoto '11 to facebook with facebook exporter

    Help!
    I've been trying to export photos from iPhoto '11 (Version 9.2.1) without success.  I am running OS X (10.6.8).  This is the error message I keep seeing, no matter which way I attempt to make a connection (through the 'Accounts' window in Preferences, or through the 'Share' tab when I select a photo to export).
    Here are the following steps I have taken, without any success:
    Changed my Facebook password.
    Logged out of Facebook.
    Downloaded and installed the 'Facebook Exporter for iPhoto' plugin from Facebook; alhtough this is suspect, since here's the most recent comment from Facebook on this plugin:
    The home for the Facebook Exporter for iPhoto - athttp://developers.facebook.com /iphoto/ - is temporarily down, as we build out a new version of it. In the meantime, you can download the application from this profile page, using the button at the left. Happy photo sharing!

    Re-booted my Mac after installing the plugin.
    Verified that the plugin is actually on my hard drive.
    Searched Google and Apple Support for help, but here I am...
    I really don't like Facebook, so maybe this the final hint that I should just give it up...

    Use Apple mail - set in the iPhoto preferences

  • Facebook Problems - Uploading in iPhoto '09

    I'm having a problem. When I try to upload photos to Facebook I get the "Set Up" window. I log in to my account and once it is on it tells me to close the window and go back to the application, but then it will ask me again to "Set Up" the account. It will continue doing this forever. Any thoughts?

  • Problem w/Walgreens iphoto exporter

    I just installed the Walgreens iPhoto exporter, and have not been able to use it b/c after I try to login, I get this error: "Server returned an invalid response. Please try later."  I have tried to reboot, reinstall the exporter, deleted cookies & caches but still can not get it to work.  I have used Walgreens before to upload but since upgrading to Snow Leopard/iLife '11, their program only wants to choose my old iphoto library and not my current one, which is why I went to the iPhoto exporter today.  Any suggestions?

    can you upload to Walgreens via Safari? If so use the standard supported access method
    we could scroll down to "Media," and were able to choose "Photos," which opened up our Photo Albums in iPhoto that we had created, and could choose the pictures we wanted to upload.  We have been able to do this several times.

  • Exporting to Facebook - why can't I use the old plug-in?

    It's nice that iPhoto '09 tried to help us with the Facebook exporter built-in. But why couldn't they make it useful? Why can't I tag people before I upload them? Why can't I upload photos to an existing album? I wouldn't mind so much, but they seemed to have disabled the existing (working) plug-in that was available. So now I have to export the pictures to my desktop and upload them through Facebook. Hmm...doesn't seem too user-friendly.

    Exporting to Facebook - why can't I use the old plug-in?
    Have you considered asking the author of the plug-in?
    It's nice that iPhoto '09 tried to help us with the Facebook exporter built-in. But why couldn't they make it useful?
    Millions upon millions of people do find it very useful
    Why can't I tag people before I upload them?
    You can - have you watched the iPhoto tutorials?
    Why can't I upload photos to an existing album?
    You can IF the album was created by iPhoto
    Do you have an iPhoto question that one of the iPhoto users who volunteer here might be able to help with?

  • Iphoto export and transparency

    Hi People,
    Does anyone know how i can make my autoviewer slideshow which I am using with iphoto export have a transparent background so the iweb page behind shows through around the photos?
    Right now the frame colour and background colour in the webexport options are: background 181818 and framecolour 181818. Any advice would be appreciated!
    Cheers,
    Ben (Brazil)

    Ben:
    I'm not sure what you mean by autoviewer. Is that a 3rd party application or plugin? As far as creating a Quicktime movie file with a transparent background I've never heard of that capability being available in any application.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto 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.
    I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), 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. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • IPhoto export broken?

    Since the Maverick updates, iPhoto "Export" no longer works.
    I can select a photo, go to the file menu, then select "Export"
    I still see the Export dialog window.
    However, when I click on the Export button, nothing happens.
    Has anyone else had this problem?
    More importantly, is there a fix? I realize that I can work around it with "show photo in Finder", but I'd like Export to work properly.
    Thanks!

  • Why does my iPhoto export in both NEF and jpg

    My requirement is this. I want to export two versions of my photos to disk - one, as JPEG for sharing with family/friends; and two, as RAW to retain my changes for subsequent edits.
    When I export an iPhoto Event to disk, I use File -> Export -> 'Current' (to preserve my edits), and it saves some photos as NEF and some as lowercase jpg. I studied a previous thread where iPhoto saved portrait files as jpg - although this is true for some of my photos, it is not entirely true. Within the same event, I have landscape mode photos which have been saved as jpg.
    I have checked my exports previous to Mavericks, and none of those exports have this problem. Is this a iPhoto / Mavericks bug like my previous post (where iPhoto would destroy some photos vertically). I'm using iPhoto 09 v8.1.2 (424) on mid 2009 MBP OSX 10.9.3.
    Thanks.

    If you export from iPhoto with "Kind > Current", it will export as a JPEG, if you have done any adjustments or modifications at all. The current version will be exported as a  JPEG. If the original has not been touched at all, however, exporting as  "Kind > Current" will export the original RAW file.
    If you want to be sure to export as a JPEG for sharing with your family, use "File > Export , Kind > JPEG, Full Size, to be on the safe side.

  • HT4718 After burning a slideshow from iPhoto export to a DVD, it will not play on my DVD player OS X 10.9.4

    iMac 27' OS X 10.9.4 I burned a slideshow from iPhoto export to a DVD and now it will not play back on anything. The player said Unknown disc. What can i do?

    I do find that using one of these programs will reduce the sharpness of the photos.
    Granted, I've never used iPhoto - I use Photo to Movie for slideshows and various versions of iMovie for videos, but my pics are excellent quality and my videos are shot in 1080p (better camera)  or 720p (small camera) and the results are superb on my TV using both iDVD and Toast. However, I do not encode in iDVD, I simply use it to add a theme and menus. The encoding is done by Photo to Movie, or iMovie 06 HD (the only version ever to process losslessly) and either/both are imported into iDVD as a complete .mov, or Toast.
    Since using those methods, I've never had a problem with the sharpness or crispness of my footage. My eyes cannot discern a difference between my "production" and true HD (unless of course I shook the camera while shooting, LOL).

  • Can't export to Facebook

    Exporting to Facebook from the share menu fails ... in both FCX and Motion. 
    Hey Justin,
    You recently uploaded a video to Facebook titled "Time Up". Unfortunately, it could not be processed. This can happen for a couple of reasons:
    * The file you uploaded is not actually a video file. Make sure you can play it on your computer before uploading.
    * The video format you uploaded is not supported by our system. We are always trying to improve the compatibility of Facebook Video, but some videos can be problematic. Try converting the video into a more common format.
    This has been a consistent behavior with various videos.

    For Facebook make sure that you have set permissions in Facebook apps to allow iPhoto to connect to your Facebook account. Not sure what's happening for Mail.
    Try quitting iPhoto.
    Go to the Home screen and double click the Home button. That will reveal the row of recently used apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on the app in question until it wiggles and displays a minus sign. Tap the minus sign to actually quit the app. Then tap anywhere on the screen above that bottom row to return the screen to normal. Then restart the app and see if it works normally.

  • IPhoto exporting issues, doesn't keep color settings?

    If I export a picture from iPhoto, the resulting file doesn't look the same way as the original. At least not in Firefox and other web browsers (IE?). It DOES look like the original in iPhoto, Preview and Safari though.
    Here's an example; Original in iPhoto, export in Preview and Firefox are the same file:

    You can clearly see that the Firefox view is more pale.
    Latest version of iPhoto.
    Tried both with NEF raw and jpg as originals.
    Ideas?

    That's a question for the Firefox people really. The profiles are attached, that's why the pic looks the same in iPhoto Safari and Preview. It's a case of getting Firefox to respect them.

  • Now all I get  on IPhoto export is a  Player movie. I have QuickTime 7.2.0

    Now all I get on IPhoto export is a movie. I haveQuickTime™ Version 7.2.0, Player Version 7.2 (7.2)
    It will at least export now. I removed the File exporter. How can I reinstall IPhoto 7 '08? Can I just drag the iphoto app to the trash and then install I Photo 7? Is that safe?

    To reinstall iPhoto the application need to be deleted and all files with iPhoto in the file name that reside in the HD/Library/Receipts folder. Then iPhoto 08 will install.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto 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.
    I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), 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. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
