IPhoto not showing photos in Modified folder

I have an issue uploading photos into facebook.  I use iPhoto to manage all of my photos on my iMac, and I created different albums to organize photos.  When I try to upload some photos into my facebook, only the photos in Original folders show up in the albums, and the ones in Modified folders are missing.  When I open album directly in iPhoto, all the photos are there.  This happens both in Safari and Chrome.  Is there a way to fix this so that I can see all of my photos when I access iPhoto albums from the browser?

iPhoto 09?
Option 1
Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Repair Database. If that doesn't help, then try again, this time using Rebuild Database.
If that fails:
Option 2
Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In early versions of Library Manager it's the File -> Rebuild command. In later versions it's under the Library menu.)
This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.
Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

  • IPhoto not showing photos

    When I go into iPhoto and click on the photos in my library, nothing appears. I can see the thumbnail but when I click on the photo, it just appears blank. Do I need to download all my photos again to have them appear in the Library? Have I lost all my photos completley? I'm new to Macs and I must have done something wrong but I'm not sure how to solve my problem. Thanks.

    iPhoto imports all the images into it's own database which is the iPhoto Library folder in the Finder. It also keeps track of where all the images are, their file names, albums, slideshows, etc. in it's data files. there for everything such as deleting photos, renaming (titles) have to be done within iPhoto so it can keep track of the changes. If you rename or delete anything in the iPhoto Library folder in the Finder, iPhoto will have no way of knowing what you did.

    About the iPhoto Library folder
    You said that you can's open any of your images in the edit mode. This would mean you did more than just rename and delete some photos in that folder in the Finder.
    I suggest you create a new library and import the images from the old library.
    Close iPhoto
    Rename your messed up iPhoto Library to "iPhoto Library_old"
    Drag this library to your desktop
    Hold down the Option key and launch iPhoto
    This is the window you will get
    Create a new library or choose a library to open
    Choose to create a new library
    Once this new empty library is open it is time to import the images from your old library
    Go to File>add to library
    Navigate to the old library on your desktop and choose it.
    iPhoto will start importing the images from your old library
    This is what to expect:
    Your images will be imported in nice dated rolls. (make sure your view is set to sort by rolls to see it) There are a couple of caveats to this. You will get rolls named "Originals" These rolls will contain your video clips and your original images that you had edited. If you had RAW files they would be in those rolls too (I don't do RAW, so I don't know for sure) Delete what you don't want from those rolls. You will also get the jpeg pointer files to your video clips imported. They will just be jpegs and will not point to the video clips anymore as iPhoto made new ones when the clips were imported again. You can delete those. they should be in a roll right next to the newly imported video clips so they are not hard to find. The thumbnail files don't get imported as iPhoto makes new ones when the images are imported.
    Once all you images have been imported, check through the library and make sure everything looks ok.
    You can now start making your Albums, and do your keywords or any other organizational steps.
    You can also delete the old library on the desktop.
    It is also a good time to backup this new library to CD/DVD by burning the iPhoto LIbrary folder in the Finder, or copying the iPhoto Library folder to an external drive formatted for Macs, or copying the iPhoto LIbrary folder to an iPod.
    Good luck!
    Here is more info for you so you can better understand how iPhoto works.
    --First thing to know and remember is this...Do not drag any images, folder of images into the iPhoto Library in the Finder. Images have to be imported into iPhoto within the application. Do not scan images and save them into the iPhoto Library folder in the Finder. Save them to another location such as the Pictures folder or even the desktop. You can then import them into iPhoto.
    --All images that you import are sown in the library view. You can choose how you want to view, by rolls, by date, by rating, etc. When you put images in an Album, slideshow, book, etc, you are actually just putting pointers to those images in the library. You are not adding more images. If you delete an image from the Album it will still be in the library. If you delete an image from the library it is deleted from iPhoto's database and your hard drive (unless you have it backed up somewhere else)
    --You have a folder of images on your hard drive and want to import them into iPhoto. Drag the folder of images into an open iPhoto Library window and the folder of photos will be copied into the library, resulting in a new roll with the name of the folder. You now have two copies of those photos, the ones in iPhoto's database and the ones on your desktop. You can keep the ones on your desktop that you just imported as backup or you can delete that folder.
    -- you scan a picture/pictures and save it in a folder. You cannot scan directly into iPhoto or the iPhoto Library folder in the Finder.
    You want all your photos in iPhoto so you import them into iPhoto.
    Now you have two copies of that picture/pictures, so you can delete the originals that were in the scanned folder and keep the one/ones that were imported into iPhoto.
    -- You download pictures from your camera into iPhoto.
    There is now one copy of each of the pictures.
    You want to change something about a picture you imported, such as
    cropping it or changing the size, or changing the orientation.
    Once you do that to a picture, you now have two copies of the picture
    in iPhoto, the original and the edited one. The edited one will be in the library organize view. The original is packed away in an Original folder in your iPhoto Library folder under the date of the roll. You can always revert to the original by control clicking on the photo and choose "revert to orginal" You will not have this choice if you used iPhoto Diet to get rid of the Originals.
    (a quick note on cropping within iPhoto...when you are in edit mode, you automatically will be in the crop mode with cross hairs to highlight the crop area. To finish cropping you must click the crop button and then go back to library view and your cropped picture will be there.
    3.You want to use Photoshop or another graphic program to edit a picture in your iPhoto library.
    You can open up prefs for iPhoto and choose "when double clicking on
    photo ..do" choose "other" and select Photoshop. Now you can edit all
    pictures in your iPhoto library in PhotoShop by double clicking. If you save the photo with the same name and as a flattened file it will be saved right into iPhoto and you will see the changes. If you don't want to save it into iPhoto then do a "save as" and save to the desktop. You will then have the original photo still in iPhoto and your new edited photo on the desktop.
    Or, with iPhoto open, you can drag a picture from the library window
    to your desktop (you see a + sign on the pic you are dragging). You now
    have two of the same picture, one in the iPhoto library and one on your desktop. You can open up the one on your desktop in any graphic program and work on it. The one in iPhoto stays the same. You can also share/export the picture/pictures to your desktop or folder to work on them or do batch processing, etc. You will still have the originals in your iPhoto Library.
    Or, you can open up the ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library/folders and option drag any
    picture out of the folder to your desktop. Notice that you will see a plus sign while dragging the photo. This is copying the file to your desktop
    I would advise anyone not to do this as they might forget to use the option key and drag the photo out. Next time you open iPhoto the photo will be missing.

    Don't forget that in Library view you can Control click on any picture and get a contextual menu with many options. One is to revert to original.

  • IPhoto not showing photo

    I have a problem with iPhoto (6.0.6). I can see all pictures in my library, but when I make a zoom, I only get a white/gray square with a ! symbol. It only happens with some photos. Also, when I use the slideshow, I get blank slides for those same photos. I had never had a problem with iPhoto before! Does anybody know why this is happening?

    Hi kbusto,
    That'a low resolution warning, usually due to editing the pic...

  • IPhoto keeps on generating photos in "modified" folder

    I'm really frustrated with how iPhoto duplicates edited photos. Therefore, I don't really do any editing in iPhoto anymore. However, the "modified" folder still has copies of photos I never edited. I select those photos in iPhoto and choose "revert to original". the photos in the modfied folder disappear for a while... but they are just regenerated after a few seconds! I've tried deleting the photos in the modified folder through the Finder, but the same thing happens. For some reason, iPhoto keeps on creating "modified" photos. To my knowledge, thats only supposed to happen when I edit in iPhoto. But again, no editing whatsoever has been done.
    Do help!

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions.
    But again, no editing whatsoever has been done.
    Actually there has.
    Your camera has an auto-rotate feature. This feature flags the photo with an instruction "Display Me This Way Up". The file is not changed, no actual pixels get turned. No application with editing capabilities respects these flags. iPhoto sees the flag and reads it as an instruction: Rotate Me. Rotation is an edit, hence the modified version.
    When you try Revert to Original, iPhoto destroys the Modified version and reads the Original again. Of course the Original has this flag put there by the camera, iPhoto sees the flag and creates a new modified version. So you have a loop.
    Solution: 1. Turn off auto-rotate on your camera or 2. Rotate the pics with another app before importing them. Make sure that the app you chooses actually rotates pixels.
    I've tried deleting the photos in the modified folder through the Finder,
    *It is strongly advised that you do not move, change or in anyway alter things in the iPhoto Library Folder as this can cause the application to fail and even lead to data loss*
    I'm really frustrated with how iPhoto duplicates edited photos. Therefore, I don't really do any editing in iPhoto anymore.
    Any photo you edit via iPhoto also has a preserved original. If you don't edit via iPhoto, then iPhoto won't know about the edits, and your thumbnails will not reflect the reality of the photo. If you don't want this feature, bluntly, you'll be better off not using iPhoto. There are other photo organisers out there. Search on MacUpdate.

  • IPhoto is not showing photos stored in albums in the last week, and when I add recent photos, they don't show, or show as black.

    iPhoto is not showing photos stored in albums in the last week, and when I add recent photos, they don't show, or show as black. What's happening ?  I show an incompatible upgrade available for OSX Maveriks, which I have not yet installed.

    What version of iPhoto are you using?  Apply the two fixes below in order as needed:
    Fix #1
    1 - launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
    2 - run Option #4 to rebuild the database.
    Fix #2
    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    1 - download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    2 - click on the Add Library button and select the library you want to add in the selection window..
    3 - Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the Library ➙ Rebuild Library menu option.
    4 - In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    5 - Click on the Create button.
    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

  • IPhoto does not show photos in my iPhone

    As the title has said, my iPhoto does not show photos from my iPhone, but it DOES recognize that iPhone is connected.
    But before all of this happened, I changed my setting (which I forgot how to reset that) to NOT open iPhoto automatically when my phone is connected.
    And also, a week ago, my iPhone usb cable seems to be spoiled at one end. It can still connect the phone to the laptop, but very loosely - as if some wires inside are broken.
    So I really do not know if the problem I mentioned is caused by my setting OR is it because of my spoiled cable (that it could not transfer the photos from the phone)
    And if it is believed that it is caused by my setting, could you please guide me on how to re-set the whole thing?
    Thank you very much.
    Ps. I can still sync my songs in itunes to my music in iPhone.

    "But before all of this happened, I changed my setting (which I forgot how to reset that) to NOT open iPhoto automatically when my phone is connected."
    Launch iPhtoto.
    In the menu, iPhoto>Preferences>General.
    Change it back.

  • Iphoto not showing imported photos in events

    I have been using iphoto for quite a while with very few problems.  Recently I have added an iPhone and an apple TV into my apple ecosystem.  I have recently noticed that my iphoto library is NOT showing photos imported from 3rd party sources such as my android phone, in the events section of the interface.  The photos ARE present in the 'photos' section which leads me to believe that they are IN the library.  But when i look at the events and select one say for 3/24 it will only display the photos taken from my wifes iphone and NOT the ones taken from my andriod and imported using the add to library function.  I have attempted all four options in the command-option iphoto startup and have gotten no where. 
    Many of you might that that this is a non issue as the photos are present in the 'photo' section.  but as i prefer to use the fullscreen mode in iphoto i do not have access to the 'photos' tab in full screen, only the 'events'. 
    could my appletv or iPhone or appletv be a contributing factor?  Is there an option in events to only display iPhone imported photos? 
    Any help would be appricaited I am pulling my hair out here.

    1 - Photos and events are simply two different views of the same photos - your iPhoto library - so any photo that is in one is always also in the other - you are just looking in the wrong place
    2 - the most common issue is incorrect dates on photos so you look in the wrong location for the event - in the photos view right click on one of the photos that you are not seeing in an event and show event
    3 - another possiblity is the sort order of the events - verify it under the view menu ==> sort events
    4 - No - it is not your Apple TV nor is it your iPhone

  • When using Iphoto to import photo from existing folder, what happens if I delete the photo in Iphoto ? Will the original file in the folder be deleted too?

    When using Iphoto to import photo from existing folder to iphoto, what happens if:
    1. I delete that photo in iphoto? will the original file in the folder be deleted too ?
    2.  when importing, does the hard disk store 2 versions of the photo, hence occupying additional space in the harddisk?

    1 - no  --  iPhoto only manages fiel within the iPhoto library - it does not ever do anything with files outside the library
    2 - No idea what you are asking - by default (and strongly recommended) iPhoto copies the original to the iPhoto library and you delete the source file outside the iPhoto library - iPhoto alwasy has at least two versions of every photo and some times three - it always have the original, a thumbnail and once a photo is modified a preview - this is not optional - if it is not what you want then iPhoto is not the correct progrtam to be using for phopto management

  • Albums not showing photos

    I am just learning about IPhoto 5. I made albums and all was great for days with slide shows and all. Then I added some new photo's to albums, now my albums will not show photo's. I can only see my photo's in IPhoto folders that are of various numbers, 01, 02, 04, 10 etc... what are these numbers and why did my photos disapear from my albums?

    Hi cazam,
    I am not sure if you are talking about seeing the albums within iPhoto or if you are talking about seeing the album folder in the Finder. The album folder in the Finder that was present with iPhoto 4 is no longer used by iPhoto 5. This is why you don't see it in the Finder.
    This is a view of how the iPhoto 5 Library looks in the Finder.
    It is organized by Year folders. Inside the Year folders are Month folders. Inside the Month folders are the days of the Month. Inside the day folders are the photos you took on that day. If you imported video clips and RAW files on that day they will be in an Originals folder. If you have edited any photo imported on that day, the original will be in that folder also.

  • Iphoto not allowing photos to download on iOS4?

    iphoto not allowing photos to download on iOS4?
    since upgrading no photos are reading ... just locks and wont read any shots as i try and view on iphoto

    All photos taken since i upgraded to iOS4 on my iphone 3Gs are not showing up when connecting to photo, plus i recently upgraded iphoto to 8.1.2.
    The message was that 'one shot must be damaged or corrupted' etc etc
    So from what you are saying, you may or may not have some corrupt photos on your camera roll in your iPhone and when you try to import them into iPhoto, you are given a message that there is one or more corrupt photos on the iPhone. Is that correct?
    Mysteriously though - today it works?
    But today when you tried it again, it worked and all photos downloaded.
    Is that correct?
    I did try and reload an older version of my iphoto back on....
    but not sure what happened...
    What did you try to load the older version of iPhoto on to? iPhoto 09 is all part of iLife 09. I am not sure, but I doubt the Mac will let you remove one part of the package and replace it with an earlier version EG iPhoto 08.
    Make sure that you have all the latest versions of software on your computer.
    On you mac, got to the Software Update menu option under the apple logo drop down menu.
    It will scan your computer verses the apple updates available and give you a list of all updates available for your computer.
    Based on the info you have supplied so far, you should have;
    OSX 10.5.8
    iPhoto 8.1.2
    iTunes 9.2.1
    If you have corrupt images on your phone, it is very possible that iphoto could have issues with importing the photos.
    Open Image Capture on your Mac, you will find it in the Applications folder and connect your iPhone. this will show you the photos that you currently have, it shows a small thumbnail of the picture, the file Name, Date taken, etc.
    If there are any corrupt photos on the iphone, you will not see the thumbnail of the photo, you will just see an icon saying jpeg or something similar.
    If you have any of these, delete them using Image Capture.
    Eject your iphone from Image Capture, unplug the iPhone and close Image Capture.
    On the iPhone, open the Photos App and now make sure that you can see your photos.
    Once you are happy that you can, plug the phone back into your Mac and import them into iPhoto as you normally would.
    Hope this helps.

  • Photostream not showing photos on iMac

    Why is my Photostream not showing photos in iphoto, if I drag them in they do go onto the ipad but disappear off the photostream in iPhoto?

    Same problem here. Photostream works (most of the time). Photos are synchronized. Sometimes, it seems as if it wouldn't synchronize them, but then it starts a few minutes later to put them in the Photostrem August Event under events. Just the Photostream part of iPhoto doesn't show any photos...
    But I'm glad I've found someone with the same problem. Now we can compare our cases and maybe, we'll find what we have in common that could have caused this.
    I'll start describing everything I can think of that could influence this and you (and others) can tell me if this is true for you too.
    Can't be the system, as I see you're on Leopard (10.5). I'm on Mountain Lion (10.8) and problem already existed under Lion(10.7).
    1. Old iMac (mid2007, at that time high end, but now obviously quiet slow)
    2. iPhoto is on an external harddrive (that's what I suspect it might come from). Not sure if the problem was there before, because I rarely go to the Photostream view.
    3. Used Duplicate Annihilator to find duplicates. It said something about turning off photostream first. Normally, I did this. Maybe I forgot once and my library got damaged?
    Not sure what else could have caused this... Maybe we find out if we compare...

  • Why does the iTunes not show "Photos"

    Why does the new iTunes not show "Photos" after it is synced, and why does iCloud not show Photos also?

    Ralph9430 offers a good suggestion.  But you may need to do this before taking his advice:
    Check in iPhoto's Preferences (which you can open from the iPhoto menu).  Look in General, and make sure "Connecting Camera Opens" is set to "Image Capture").
    If it is set to "iPhoto", you won't be able to get to Image Capture easily.

  • App is open but will not show photos

    App is open but will not show photos.

    With the amount of information you've provided it's impossible to offer a solution.  We can't see your computer so we need to know the details of your problem and setup, i.e.:
    what version of iPhoto are you using?
    what system version are you running?
    what do you see in the iPhoto window when iPhoto opens?
    what fixes have you tried?
    where is your library located?
    did you apply any updates or upgrades just prior to the problem occurring?
    are you running a "managed" or "referenced" library?
    what type of Mac?
    how much free space on your boot drive?

  • Spiceworks device view still not showing photos of assets?

    Hi, any progress on the issue of Device View not showing photos of devices? I found a few old threads on it but couldn't find anything updated. I'm on the latest version of Spiceworks 7.4.00070 and it looks like this:
    I've had this problem since I first installed the app. It's only with the latest release that the old OptiPlex 755's started to show pictures, anything newer than that model just gives a generic icon. Obviously not a crucial issue, but would be nice if it could be fixed! :)
