Can't upgrade, becuz original pictures/system gone

I upgraded to iLife 6 without backing up my 4000+ photos. Not smart, but... I got the message that the photos needed upgrading so I acknowledged and then got an error message that told me it couldn't upgrade because it couldn't find a file. and listed the file.
That file WAS on a server that I blew away a long time ago. Anyone have a clue how to remove that reference (and probably more) from whatever database iPhoto uses to store metadata??

I ended up calling Apple. I had to move my iPhoto folders to another machine. Then delete the prefs and restart. After I restarted I was able to import the photos from the other machine. I lost my albums but got the pix back.

  • How can i find the original picture in the correct event folder from an album folder picture?

    how can i find the original picture in the correct event folder from an album folder picture? I can find the link to the original event folder, but is there a way to get right to the picture without having to search visually the event folder?

    Depends on whatr you mean
    Deleting from your phone does not delete from anywhere else
    HOWEVER deleting from your Photo stream does delete from the Photostream so anyone looking at the PS from any device will no longer see the photo
    But if your Mac iPhoto is set to automatically impor tphotos form PS or is you have manually imported photos from PS then onc ethey are imported they are on your Mac and change to PS will not affect them

    Started off this problem with a normal system update. Was notified pacman should be updated first, went to update it:

    So, I went to search if it was just a mirror conflict or something. Turns out package query is an AUR package. No problem right, just remove it and reinstall later right?

    I'm kind of stuck now. Do I remove both yaourt and package query? I just don't want to have to spend a whole bunch of time unnecessarily fixing things. I just want to be able to bring my system completely up-to date and at the end of it retain the packages I have.

Does anyone have an idea where should go for the pictures?

  • Original picture changed while saving the edited one

    Hi,
    I am an absolute beginner using Camera Raw.
    I just edit a picture in Camera Raw 5.7. When I was finished I saved the edited picture using a new name. Unfortunatly the original picture has also changed. So now I have two identical edited pictures with different names but the original picture is gone. How can I keep the original?
    Regards, Nicole

    The original image is still there...it's just had processing parameters added to the raw file. If you really don't want them you can either go into Bridge, Edit, Develop Settings and hit clear. But if you do that you will loose all the work you put into making the adjustments...you might be better off going back into Camera Raw and create a snapshot of the settings them you can reset the image to it's default settings...

  • Where do I find my original picture after editing it in the organizer and saiving it

    I am brand new to photoshop elements.  I edited a photo in the editor and saved it with another name.  I now can not find the original picture.  What happened to it?

    When you are working in the Organizer in PSE13, by default you are shown a display of the thumbnails where each thumbnail is maximized without any text, file name or details.
    That's a new display mode in version 13. You can switch the display mode to the old 'detailed' view, where the thumbnail is smaller, but shown with the file name and details if you have selected that option in the "View" menu. To switch, use either the View menu or the shortcut Ctrl D.
    When you have edited a picture from the Organizer, the new picture you have created is linked to the original, they are in a 'version set'. Only the more recent version is shown by default. When you have switched to 'detailed view', there is a small triangle on the right of the thumbnail. Click on it, and all versions will be displayed side by side.
    Is that what you want?
    If you have created a version set, a small icon should appear on the top ritht of the thumbnail even in non-detailed display mode.

  • Can i upgrade my g5 2.0

    a friend just gave me his old powermac g5 2.0 per processor
    He has the original 160 sata hard drive it came with,my question is can i upgrade the original hard drive from a 160 to like a 250 ??

    Yes, you can go as high as two 2.2TB SATA Drives, just be certain they're Sata 1 /1.5Gb/s compatible, you could add one of these under 2.2TB & it needs a jumper on pins 5&6 to slow it to G5 speeds...

  • I had Iphoto 08 and now is gone, I have under applications and is not there. Also most of the pictures are gone. Can you easily delete the application?

    I had Iphoto 08 and now is gone, I have looked under applications and is not there. Also most of the pictures are gone. Can you easily delete the application?

    Obviously you can.
    To re-install iPhoto
    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
    2a: On 10.5:  Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
    2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows:  In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
    /var/db/receipts/
    2c: on 10.7 they're at
    /private/var/db/receipts
    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
    3. Re-install.
    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
    If you purchased it on the App Store or have a Recent Mac you can find it in your Purchases List.

  • Can I upgrade the processor on my laptop? If so, what processors are compatible for my system?

    I have an HP Pavillion dv6-2150us, which runs an Intel Core i3 @ 2.13 GHz, 8 GB RAM and Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.  Can I upgrade this processor and if so, what processors are compatible to this system?

  • Imported photo's from computer, via Itunes, to iphone, now itunes can't find the folder with original pictures from Iphone or doesn't recognize it.

    Dear reader,
    i just bought a new Iphone 5s, and decided to download Itunes and sync my Iphone with my laptop. Everyting went well until i decided to try out some things and i imported pictures via Itunes from laptop to Iphone. this is how i did it: Itunes - iphone - pictures - pictures synchronized from 'option choose map' - I chose another map - after, i 'ticked' box 'all maps'. Then i hit the button 'synchronize'. I forgot to look how the orignal map was called and this was the one Itunes syncronised autmatically with, that one also contaned all the original pictures on my Iphone. So, after putting some new photo's on my Iphone, i wanted to change the settings back to normal so my Itunes and Iphone could sync iphone pictures again. But I can't find the old map back or Itunes doesn't recognize the map. I already tried to use the map 'Ipod Photo Cache' but it shows only empty folders. I also tried computer - iphone - Internal storage or DCIM or 860OKMZO; No idea what that means but i thought that the last two folders can contain pictures. However, i get an error if select these ones a map in Itunes. How do I get back to the old settings again?
    I hope I described the problem well; English is not my native language so i'm sure this might contain grammar mistakes.
    A big 'thank you' for helping me in advance!

    When i connected the iphone to my laptop, i found the location of the pictures on the iphone; the a map called  '860OKMZO' (i've mentioned this map earlier, this folder is located inside the folder DCIM). But if i try to open it with Itunes, this error comes up: 'foldername is invalid'. I figured that Itunes could have saved the synchronised pictures in another map somewhere else but i've found nothing... 

  • Paypal will not display pictures (text only). Can not buy things on the internet. Can not upgrade flash in firefox.

    3 problems: 1) I can't buy anything online. Firefox has a popup that states that all payment sites (Amazon, paypal, etc.) are forbidden and tries to protected me from them and blocks me (will not let me bypass the block). 2) Once I figure a work around the block Paypay shows as text only (shows all content on internet explorer) 3) try to upgrade adobe flashplayer as suggested in a forum and adobe flash can not upgrade when firefox is open. Been on firefox for several years now why the sudden ultimate security?

    Quite honestly, I think you need to go back to Flash 10.3.183.90, a version that was kept alive specifically for WinXP users. The Flash 11 and later versions have a separate plugin container that isn't available for anything below Win Vista with feature you can't even use. I see no advantage to anything newer and on the down side the newer versions are a lot more likely to crash frequently.
    First, grab the Adobe uninstaller from here:
    http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html
    Then download Flash 10.3.183.90 from here - about halfway down the page:
    http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html
    (Released 6/11/2013) Flash Player 10.3.183.90 (61.1 MB)
    IMO, the best version of Flash for WinXP. Adobe kept up with security updates for 10.3 for WinXP users long after Flash 11.0 came out in 2011 for Vista and newer versions of Windows.
    Run the uninstaller, then reboot your operating system.
    Then you can run the Flash installer, with Firefox closed, of course.
    ''Note, if you still use IE, you'll need to reinstall the ActiveX version of Flash for IE. That uninstaller removes all versions of Flash that might be installed,''

    Well, that's kind of embarrassing. And I honestly thought I paid attention to that... It works perfectly now, thank you so much!
    As expected, cdm-git also works fine since DMs only work in the root mode as of now.
    Just for the record, both type commands output "/usr/bin/startx" and pacman -Q gives "systemd 215-4".
