Some go the pictures I have in iphoto are gone.

When say I open an event and say that the event has 6 pictures in it. The pictures are gone but if I click where the pictures were I can view a single picture of the six that were once there. Then I close it and there all gone.
Thanks for your time and may 09 be the best year of your life

David:
Sounds like a damaged library. Make a temp backup of the library and launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys depressed and follow the instructions to rebuild the library. Select the first three options. See if that will fix the problem.
TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) 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 created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), 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 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
Note: There's now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

  • I added photos of our company's products to the Goods App for our sales team to use as an electronic catalog.  Some of the pictures display perfectly.  Others are blury.  How can I fix this?

    I added photos of our company's products to the Goods App for our sales team to use as an electronic catalog.  Some of the pictures display perfectly.  Others are blury.  How can I fix this? I Googled pixel size for Ipads and checked this size against the blury photos.  They seem to be less than the max pixels allowed.  Must be another solution????

    Ged,
    whilst generally I agree with you a question (or two) for clarification so we can be sure we're not comparing apples with oranges
    I'm not familiar with O2's product lineup but given you're on Annex M is that a business package?
    Are you on an Infinity residential or business package?
    On the subject of the offshore support teams my experience from the other sife of the fence is that many, many of them are very technically orientated. The problem is that the ISPs they work for don't give them access to many of the tools that are needed (they need to raise internal requests to even get line checks done in some cases) and also they are very heavily scripted & monitored in what they do/say on a call.
    Sounds like O2 are operating as a contact centre rather than as a call centre which is much more preferable from the customers point of view.

  • Not letting me import any photos, RAw or JPG and all the pictures i had in lightroom are gone!

    This has been very very frustration!!. Lightroom is not letting me import any pictures at all!! and all of the pictures i had on light room are now gone. i did not have this problem a week ago and nothing has changed! This needs to be fixed ASAP please because i am on a time crunch!!!
    PLEASE HELP!

    What do you mean by “not letting me import any pictures”?  Are you unable to see pictures to import, or is there an error, or what?  Are you using  Mac or PC, and what operating system?

  • After upgrading to iOS5 all the pictures in my camera roll are gone. Please help.

    I synced my phone through itunes prior to upgrading to iOS5. Then the upgrade also backed up the phone. Upon the upgrade completing I was browsing through my phone and noticed that all the photos that were in my camera roll are nowhere to be found. Can anyone help me?

    I have the same problem. I bought an iPod Touch 4G 64GB last June. After upgrading to the new iOS 5, most of my pictures, apps and music is gone. Every time I try and recover my backup the system crashes. I tried to call their technical support to restolve the problem but I was told that I had to pay $29 to solve the problem that they created. This is a disgrace.
    People are saying restore the iPod but with mine that didn't help.

  • I have iPhoto 09 version 8.1.2 when I double click on some of the pictures, I see exclamation mark.

    The ! turns up when iPhoto loses the connection between the thumbnail in the iPhoto Window and the file it represents.
    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 Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords 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. .

    Missing Pictures.
    Have made a rebbot from Time Machine, and now I lack a lot of pictures. Can see icons, but not enlarge them. Especially pictures where 2009 is included in the date is missing?
    When I set up my desktop, I can find some of the pictures. Where do They hide, and what shall I do.
    Have made back up, but unfortunately a little too late. What to do?
    MacBook Pro 15 "late 2008, Processor 2.53 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB, Software Mac OS X 10.7.4 Lion (11E53).

    1. You did not get an error message telling you that your iPhoto library was getting full. You got a message telling you that your HD was getting full, right?
    OS X needs about 10 gigs of hard drive space for normal OS operations - things like virtual memory, temporary files and so on.
    Without this space your Mac will slow down as the OS hunts for space on the disk, files will be fragmented, also slowing things down, apps will crash and the risk of data corruption - that is damage to your files, photos, music - increases exponentially.
    Your first priority is to make more space on that HD. Nothing else can be done until you do.
    Purchase an external HD and move your Photos and Music to it. Both iPhoto and iTunes can run perfectly well with the Library on an external disk.
    Your Library has been damaged from being run on an overfull disk.
    How much free space on it now?

  • Can I have the name stamp on the picture i edit on iPhoto

    Can I have the name stamp on the picture i edit on IPhoto?

    Do you mean put text onto the photo? Using a plug-in like Border FX yes, or an external editor
    In order of price here are some suggestions:
    Seashore (free)
    The Gimp (free)
    Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)
    Acorn ($50 approx)
    Pixelmator ($50 approx)
    Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)
    There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate. You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.

  • I made an album in iPhoto and when it plays through the "slideshow", heads are cut off in some of the pictures.  How do I fix this?

    I made an album in iPhoto and when it plays through the "slideshow", heads are cut off in some of the pictures.  How do I fix this?

    When running a slideshow from an album it will not run properly if the photos are sorted manually.  Sort them by any of the other options, title, date, rating, etc. and it will play correctly.
    Send a report of the problem to Apple via http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphoto.html.
    If you must sort them manually create the slideshow in the slideshow mode in iPhoto, not from an album.

  • Some of the pictures I am trying to use don't quite fit into the pre-set frames... Is there a way to move just the photo with-in the frame so to use the best part of the picture?

    Some of the pictures I am trying to use in Idvd don't quite fit into the specified frame... Is there a way to just move the picture itself within the frame to use the best part of the pic... For example I'm trying to use a picture of my son..but his head gets cut off when I drag the picture into the place holder....

    When trying to troubleshoot my problem I discovered a forum that was saying certain NTFS drives work just fine
    Apple support says that an NTFS or exFAT drive cannot be used when connected to the AirPort Extreme.
    I suppose it is possible that someone might have been using some type of special software on the drive that might perform a "conversion", but without more details, it is hard to know.
    Note: ExFAT and NTFS formats aren't supported.

  • Some of the pictures I need to print need to be reversed before printing. How do I do this?

    Some of the pictures I need to print need to be reversede before printing. How do I do this?

    Hmm.. I'm not exactly sure about the black part.. but if your pictures are showing up blurry, are you emailing them to yourself from another computer, and then putting them onto iphoto? Because if you did that, try transfering your pictures by USB. That's what happened to me.
    Hope I helped a bit!

  • Some of the songs I have downloaded onto i tunes won't play when I select it to do so.  The error message I get is "The song could not be used because the original file could not be found.  Would you like to locate it?"  How can I get my songs to play?

    Some of the songs I have downloaded into i tunes won't play when I select it to do so.  The error message I get is "The song can not be used because the original file can not be found.  Would you like to locate it?"  When I select yes I'm sent to a screen that has my i tunes library listed.  When I select the song in question I'm asked if I would like to open the song.  When I select this option I get nothing.  The songs I have downloaded must be somewhere because they are listed in my i tunes library and on the screen I've been sent to.  I can't the songs to play however.  This is not true of all of my songs but it is true of quite a few of them.  Actually, one song is too many.    How do I get my music to play that seems to be locked up somewhere in the computer?

  • I broke my phone and the screen doesn't work. How do i transfer the pictures i have on that sim card to my computer/other device?

    I cannot see the screen. The phone is on but I'm not sure that the pictures I have are backed up on my cloud. I have it plugged into a computer but it's not reading anything. The sim card I have on the broken phone is too big for the phone I am currently using.

    You can also try plugging your phone into your computer with a USB cord.  Depending on the settings prior to breaking the phone, you might be able to see it show up as a removeable drive like you would a thumb drive.

  • How to erase some of the pictures in photo stream

    How to delete some of the pictures in photo stream?

    You can delete photos from your photo stream the same way you delete other photos from your iOS device or Mac. Just select the photos you want to remove, then tap the trash icon or click Delete.
    On your PC, select the photos you want to remove from your photo stream, right-click, then select delete.
    When you delete a photo from My Photo Stream on one device, iCloud will automatically delete it from the My Photo Stream album or view on your other devices.

  • TS3989 Only some of the photos I have taken on my iPhone appear in the photo stream on my iPad even thou they were taken at the same time. Why is this and how can I import the other photos from my iPhone to my iPad?

    Only some of the photos I have taken on my iPhone appear in the photo stream on my iPad even thou they were taken at the same time. Why is this and how can I import the other photos from my iPhone to my iPad?

    If older photos are missing it may be because photo stream photos are only held in iCloud for 30 days.  After that they are removed from iCloud but will remain (up to 1000 photos) on your device until deleted.  Also, only photos taken after enabling photo stream are added to your photo stream, and only when the camera is closed, your device is connected to wifi and you have at least 20% battery life remaining.
    To transfer the missing photos you can either create a shared photo stream containing them and invite yourself to it (see http://help.apple.com/icloud/#mmc0cd7e99), import the photos to your computer and sync them to your iPad, or use an app like PhotoSync to transfer them to your iPad over wifi.
