Iphoto exporting questions

Hi everyone!
I have exported two photos from iPhoto 09 today to an external hard disk. Both of the photos had been modified in iPhoto many months ago.
I then imported the two photos to a new iPhoto library.
Both exported photos exhibit things I find strange and I wondered if someone can enlighten me as to what's going on:
1. Photo 1. Modified file size 3.2 MB. Keyword set. Exported as Kind: JPEG, Quality: Maximum.
2. Photo 2. Modified file size 3.1Mb. Keyword set. Exported as Kind: Current.
After export:
Photo 1. The Keyword appears correctly in the new iPhoto library. But why has the file size grown in size to 7Mb? And even though it has grown in size will the quality be reduced?
Photo 2: The Keyword has not been copied to the new iPhoto library. The file size is still 3.1Mb.Why has the keyword not been retained.
The reason for all this messing about is that I may want move away from iPhoto at some point and if I do I want to retain the keywords I have allocated.
Ideally I don't want file sizes to increase when I export and nor do I want to lose any quality.
Thanks for your time.

The photos were originally modified in iPhoto but I can't remember the compression used.
It's automatic, you didn't decide. It's roughly 8 on Photoshop's scale of 12 according to Old Toad's tests.
It seems an unnecessary restriction not to automatically include metadata when 'Current' is chosen. Do you know why it is like that? Perhaps I should request Apple to include at least an option to choose to include it or not!
Been that way for years. No idea why, but the ability to export with added metadata only arrived with v6. Making it an option with 'Current' is a bit moot as you can only write to Jpeg or Tiff anyway. You wouldn't be adding to Current, simply removing it as an option.
If I start using Aperture for my existing photos (as well as new ones) would all the metadata in iPhoto be available?
I'm assuming the photos/files would need to be imported to an Aperture library - modified if they have been altered, otherwise originals?
If you import from iPhoto to Aperture then both the Original and Modified are brought over.

  • IPhoto file questions

    Hello! I am new to Macs. Having recently switched from a PC to a Mac, I am a little confused by the file management.
    Every time I import photos using iPhoto, where are the files saved?
    If I want to copy, email, or open photos using any non-Apple software (say, my email in Safari), how do I find the uploaded photos?
    I apologize if these questions have been asked before, and I thank you for your reply.

    . To access them, control-click it in the Finder and choose Show Package Contents. Don't change anything inside.
    This is not a supported way to access the files.
    There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:
    *For Users of 10.5 and later*
    You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Command-Click for selecting multiple pics.
    Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
    (Note the above illustration is not a Finder Window. It's the dialogue you get when you go File -> Open)
    You can access the Library from the New Message Window in Mail:
    Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
    *For users of 10.4 and later* ...
    Many internet sites such as Flickr and SmugMug have plug-ins for accessing the iPhoto Library. If the site you want to use doesn’t then some, one or any of these will also work:
    To upload to a site that does not have an iPhoto Export Plug-in the recommended way is to Select the Pic in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export and export the pic to the desktop, then upload from there. After the upload you can trash the pic on the desktop. It's only a copy and your original is safe in iPhoto.
    This is also true for emailing with Web-based services. However, if you're using Gmail you can use iPhoto2GMail
    If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
    If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
    *If you want to access the files with iPhoto not running*:
    For users of 10.6 and later:
    You can download a free Services component from MacOSXAutomation which will give you access to the iPhoto Library from your Services Menu. Using the Services Preference Pane you can even create a keyboard shortcut for it.
    For Users of 10.4 and later:
    Create a Media Browser using Automator (takes about 10 seconds) or use this free utility Karelia iMedia Browser
    Other options include:
    1. *Drag and Drop*: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
    2. *File -> Export*: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.
    3. *Show File*: Right- (or Control-) Click on a pic and in the resulting dialogue choose 'Show File'. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.

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

    I have a weird problem.
    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.
    MacBook Pro 15" Mac OS X (10.4.6) 2 GHz

    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.

  • IPhoto export 2 black photos in my slide show?

    I can export the photos in JPG format OK. I forced a rebuilt of IPhoto library with no better result.
    Its always the same 2 photos, one is 8.5M and the other is 13M.
    Can anybody comment?

    Here is the report.

  • IPhoto Export to My Passport

    I exported my photos from iPhoto to My Passport external drive in order to make room on my MacBook Air.  The photos are still showing in iPhoto.  Do I need to delete the library?

    iPhoto Export leaves the original in place. You can delete them in iPhoto, then empty the Trash in iPhoto and then the trash on your Mac to completely free up the space.
    Another option you may want to consider would be the following: iPhoto '11: Move your iPhoto library to a new location

  • 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!
    Ben (Brazil)

    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.

  • IPhoto: Export videos with titles

    All of my videos are in iPhoto, and I've added titles to all of the videos within iPhoto.
    However, when I EXPORT these videos to my desktop, iPhoto doesn't export them with the titles that I've assigned to them in iPhoto.
    iPhoto exports them with their generic title (such as "img_0015.mov") that they originally had when I first shot the videos.
    How can I get iPhoto to export all of these videos with their titles intact?

    Are you checking this checkbox in the slideshow settings pane?
    which will give you this in the slide:

  • IPhoto export photo quality

    Is there a way to manually dictate the JPG image quality upon iphoto export to web? The images the automatic web portfolio is very poor. Quality 5 at best.
    There must be a way to hard set this export feature.

    There are two quality levels involved when you add iPhoto photos to an iWeb photo page: 1 - the quality of the image used for the iWeb slideshow presentation and that of the file provided for download from that site. Which are you concerned with?
    What's the URL of your site so we can examine the photos first hand? Also what are the pixel dimensions of the photos that you are transferring to iWeb?

  • Iphoto export size

    What are the actual pixel sizes of the small, medium and large iPhoto export (jpeg) options?  I have already read what the suggested purpose of each size is, but I can not find the numeric pixel size the will be exported.

    It's a factor of the size of the Original image, so it depends on that.
    However, in the same place in the dialogue box you can choose to export to a specific size too.

  • 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).

    So, if you have to import these Tables, you may have to collect again the statistics of these Tables.
    It's not relative to this problem but why don't you use DataPump (expdp/impdp) ?
    Please find enclosed a link about DataPump, it's much more powerful than the classical export/import:

  • 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

    Then you use the exp 10g version, right ? To move data DOWN a version(s), you need to export using that lower versions EXP tool and using IMP that lower version tool.
