IWeb and full resolution pictures for download

I finally got a good camera and wanted to share those glorious 12MP (3-4MByte) pictures via iWeb. I'd not paid much attention before now, but iWeb is fond of "optimizing" and reducing the size of pictures in order to save space and improve upload and download times. Even if you uncheck "optimize" in preferences, and select "download full resolution" in the photo inspector, I've found that some times you get the full multi-megabyte picture, then for reasons unknown to me, most other pictures have been reduced from 1/4 to 1/10 the original file size and the resolution has been reduced, say form 3000x4000 pixel to 768x1024 (seems arbitrary ...).
How to deal with this. Nothing direct that I can find: uncheck optimize works for a bit, them reverts; full size download refers to the size after such "optimizing." I think it's a bug, but maybe others think it's a feature.
My indirect work around: use your public folder on idisk in me.com. Create a folder structure to mirror your iWeb picture album structure to simplify life for your guest. Password protect it if you want some privacy.
Then go ahead and let iWeb optimize, and select the download size you want (maybe "medium" is fine for some users, for example).
But include on each picture or album page a hyperlink to your me.com public folder: the link will look something like https://public.me.com/<your me.com name here>. If you've specified a password, it will be requested when someone uses the link. I don't think there is any finer grain hyperlink available to your public folder - for example, to the sub folders you create to mirror your album structure.
The public idisk options are in preferences in idisk on iWeb.
If you only want to share a few pictures, it may be easier for the user to share individual file with a similar hyper link set up for each one using link outside the picture container object (can't be inside), or for each picture on the detail page (the comment, such as the image name, can be made a clickable element (hyper link). If you have tens or more pictures to share at once, this method is pretty inconvenient.
The sharing options for individual files are available when you select file via idisk in me.com
So, there it is. Hope this suggestion helps someone.

PS: Yes, I've offered feedback to Apple about this lack of flexibility in iWeb.

If you only want to share a few of the larger files zip them and put them in a folder titled Pictures in your iDisk/Web/Sites folder. Then create a thumbnail or text hyperlink to them at http://web.me.com/MMeAccount_Name/Pictures/FileName. That way they will immediately download when the link is selected.
A viewable version of the photo can be placed on the page and linked to the larger zipped version on your iDisk.

  • IPhone Videos and Photos not available for download

    I've been using FCP X for a good while now, Aperture, and my iPhone. We're a good team for a serious hobbiest (<--is that even a word?).
    I did this morning what I normally do about once a month. Hook up my iPhone 5s to my MBP, fire up FCPX, click import and...
    no videos to download? My phone is now full of pictures and videos.
    I verified "All clips" are selected and that the "hide imported clips" is UNselected. Should show all my iPhone video and photo content. Always has in the past. Instead, today, I get a total of 27 photos/videos combined. Truthfully, my iPhone indicates 48 videos and over 2,000 pics.
    So, knowing my mac a bit, I fire up Image Capture. I'll force this booger to do a manual download to my desktop, then I'll upload to FCPX. Same 27 photo/video combo shows on Image capture.
    I restart my computer and my phone. No change.
    How is it I have a full phone (only 3gb left of room), jam packed with photos and video, yet I can only "see" 27 of them on my computer but all of them on my iPhone.
    Why can't I seem to "see" them and have them available for download? This coincides with the most recent update (since I've performed a download).
    Any ideas on how to get my videos off my phone? Aperture is still doing the iCloud skim over fine, so I have all my photos now in Aperture Photostream files.

    As a continuation...
    I've done a few pics today and a couple of videos on my iPhone. They are not showing up on image capture or FCPX now. Nothing is showing up, it is as if I have a blank iPhone.
    Any ideas how to get my iPhone and mac to play nice?
    Pics still skimming over iCloud to Aperture though, which is good.

  • Is there a way to copy full resolution pictures to ipad from my mac via usb or sd connection kit?

    I would like to copy my pictures to my ipad 2 at full resolution, partily for editing, partily for backup.  I have used some of the wifi ipad apps out there and they all seem to be problematic and load up the camer roll.  I have the sd and usb camera connection kit put out by apple and this works great as long as the pics are in their original file name (for some reason). 
    I would love to be able to just use the usb camera connection kit plug and copy all of these over in their folders ect.  But I realize that may not be possible at this time. 
    Is their another easier way?

    Syncing them via iTunes (and via Photo Stream in the Cloud) will 'optimise' them, so you will either need to use one of the wifi-transfer apps (in which case they will go into the Camera Roll) or the camera connection kit (when they will go into an 'imported' album). For the CCK and you need to create a DCIM directory off the root of the card, with the photos underneath it, and the photo filenames need to be exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension i.e. in a similar format as if a camera had created/written them.
    I haven't tried any, but there may be third-party apps that you could use to store and keep the same file organisation of your photos.

  • Saving Full Resolution Pictures on a DVD

    I am making a DVD and have a question about putting JPG files on the DVD. I made a DVD movie that contains a video and a slideshow movie that I made in iPhoto. I know in iDVD you have the option of saving full resolution pictures on the DVD disk but I am not sure how to do this in DVD Studio Pro. In iDVD there is a simple option you select.
    I was going to use iDVD however, I want to have a movie play as soon as the DVD is inserted and then have it go to the main menu and I am not sure if you can do that with iDVD.
    There must be a simple way to put the full resolution pictures on the DVD so that one could get them later with a computer. I contemplated just making a separate manual advancing slideshow in DVD Studio Pro but I was not sure if the full size files would be stored or if they are encoded. Also, if one wanted to print off some of the pictures how would they do that?
    Any help is much appreciated.

    Just click on the disk icon in the outline view window, then go to the general tab of the inpector and toward the bottom of the window check off the DVD-ROM content button and navigate to the folder that contains the folder of the content you want to include.

  • Full screen picture for contacts

    I have recently upgrade to the iphone 5. I use MS Exchange to sync contacts and email. I want to have full screen picture for caller ID but it only gives me a thumbnail. Any suggestions to get full screen picture for caller ID?

    It used to be that if you assigned the picture while on the phone, it was full screen. I remember reading around iOS 5 I believe that it only allowed for full screen, but I still have a couple that are only thumbnails that have been synced over from contacts in LinkedIn. Try assigning the picture from the phone itself and see if that changes it.

  • Firstly I updated my ipad into ios7 and after watching the video by Apple, iWork, pages and numbers are free for download after updating iOS 7. How can I download iWork pages and number for free?

    Firstly I updated my ipad into ios7 and after watching the video by Apple, iWork, pages and numbers are free for download after updating iOS 7. How can I download iWork pages and number for free? Please help me.

    stevejobsfan is correct; iwork for ios is free only for new purchases of new ios devices. A good work around (if you have wifi connectivity) is going to the icloud website on your ipad, and working on your document.
    A word of caution (the real reason I am responding to your post). If you do a lot of 'formatting' of a document on iwork for mac, and then save it in icloud; you will probably loose most of the formatting you have done (this will be true if you oppen the document in iwork for ios; also) It happened to me, and I did not duplicate the document before saving it to icloud; I lost at least an hours worth of work.

  • I have an IMAC and purchased OS X Lion to upgrade from the APP store, and launched the software for downloading, and I have been waiting on this for an hour, and it still says it's downloading? What do I do next?

    I have an IMAC and purchased OS X Lion to upgrade from the APP store, and launched the software for downloading, and I have been waiting on this for an hour, and it still says it's downloading? What do I do next?

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    The OS X Lion installer takes more than 4 GB of space, so it is normal for most Internet connections to take the download more than an hour.
    If you want to see the download progress, open the Mac App Store and go to Purchases.
    Before upgrading, make a backup of your files with Time Machine and check that your apps are compatible > http://www.roaringapps.com

  • IPad 2 music does not play and high resolution pictures get corrupted when syncing through iTunes on 64 bit Win 7.  Anyone else have a problem with iTunes corrupting music and pictures from 64bit machine?

    Works from a 32 bit XP machine.  Does not work from a 64bit Win 7 machine.  It's 64 bit that seems to be the issue; the music won't start playing, and for pictures, it's when they're more than 768x1024 resolution that they appear very low resolution and/or corrupt.  None of the normal tricks work (different user account; different USB port; different USB hub controller) and the problem is replicable.  The music and JPEG and PNGs, however, are fine if transferred via a Windows network to a 32 bit machine ie it's not the music/image files.

    Dear Katrina, the problem has finally been solved, with the help of a computer-savvy friend of mine who came round this afternoon. As a courtesy, and to thank you for all your help in this matter, I want to share the solution with you.
    A piece of the puzzle was missing, as you said, and it lay in the tenth line of the XML document I relayed to you....
    <key>Music Folder</key><string>file://localhost/C:/Users/Simon/Music/iTunes/iTunes%20Media/</string>
    My friend spotted that the command string contained a sub-folder of the iTunes folder called "iTunes Media". iTunes was expecting to find all my music there, but that folder didn't exist.
    So I created a new folder called "iTunes Media", and moved all my musical content into it, leaving all the command files in the original iTunes folder.
    Then I moved the "iTunes Media" folder into the "iTunes" folder, so that it was a sub-folder of the latter.
    Then I re-opened iTunes and - joy of joys! - everything works once again. I am re-united with all of my music, and without having to make over 14,000 manual location exercises. I can't tell you how exciting that is.
    The mystery is solved, and what had me so puzzled seems obvious now. Thanks again for your help. Without you I might never have got to this point.

  • Thumbnail and Full resolution loading

    The app is very slow in loading some thumbnails in the home page. Also, when viewing in full screen, it takes a while for a photo to load completely in full resolution especially higher resolution photos from dSLR cameras. Note that the photos are stored onboard, not in the sd card. Big annoyance when showing other people your photos.

  • What is the difference between the iPhoto that came pre-downloaded on my MacBook and the iPhoto available for download on the App Store?

    I have had my MacBook for 5 years and ever since upgrading to the new system which added the App Store to my computer, I have been curious about the difference between the iPhoto that came pre-downloaded when I purchased my computer 5 years ago and the iPhoto available for purchase on the App Store. What makes the iPhoto from the App Store so different that I have to pay $15 for it, when I already have it for free on my computer?

    Lots and lots of new features - and since you have upgraded to Mavericks much better operation
    For information on what has changed there are many. many reviews on the web as well os a writup on the App store recapping the new features of the latest version vs the previous version
    as to your choice - totally personal - do or don't - you choose - it does no involve anyone here in any way

  • When will WIndows 8 64-bit drivers and apps be available for download

    It's a bit frustrating that I can't get Windows 8 drivers and applications for my Satellite P775 because of a buggy Windows 8 Update Assistant: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=68918&tstart=0
    I'm happy to download and install the relevant components manually. Do you plan to make these available for download and if so when? The web site did indicate that they would be available in time for the Windows 8 release - which is today.

    Hi JoeJoe as far as I know all notebooks which were shipped with the Win 7 and are part of the Win 8 Upgrade Assistant will get the Win 8 drivers via this Upgrade Assistant. All newer notebooks series which are already shipped with the Win 8 will be able to download the drivers manually
    Furthermore other it seems that Win 8 drivers will be released in three different steps
    Step 1 - Toshiba Upgrade Assistant Release: 26.10.2012
    Step 2 - Toshiba Upgrade Assistant Release: 21.11.2012
    Step 3 - Toshiba Upgrade Assistant Release: 07.12.2012
