IOS 8 Photos Confusion

I'm confused about photos after updating to iOS 8. After seeing photostream photos gets mixed in with the photos I took on my iPhone I decided to turn photostream off. Now the only way to see my photos in chronological order is by viewing 'Moments'. I just want a simple way to view my photos like my camera roll from before. I don't want to view Moments. Most of my photos are not a 'moment' anyway. How confusing is this?

This was talk about yesterday, you can do a search at the top right of the forum  IOS 8 camera roll gone

  • Pictures sent from Samsung WP7 to iOS Devices Cannot Be Viewed Once Saved the the iOS Photo Library.

    Pictures sent from Samsung WP7 to iOS Devices Cannot Be Viewed Once Saved the the iOS Photo Library.  I don't have issues with saving pictures from any other user types.  Please help!
    Steps to reproduce issue: 
    1) Share pictures from WP7 either via email or Messaging with iPhone 4
    2) View photo on iOS device in email app or messaging (text message)
    3) Save Photo to Photo Library in iOS
    4) Go to Photos app in iOS
    5) This results in a dialog saying "Rebuilding Photo Library"
    6) Once this is done, the photo sent from WP7 appears a grey block icon that says ".JPG: on it

  • Sort order changes from ios photos to iphoto

    My photos in an album in the the ios Photo app are in a particular order.  When accessed fro iPhoto, the order is completely different.  How can I mantain the original order?

    I also have have the same issue and have been on the phone with Apple Care....not much help I'm afraid although I do believe something is broken and requires a fix. Here is what I have found (all software up to date and latest OS BTW)....I have sorted all my pictures by Date, if I want to add a straggler I just alter the original date and all is well within the event.  I then "batch change" the event to the tile and event name. So the pictures in the event are named " Holiday 2012  1-xxx.  Again, all is well in iPhoto but when sent to an iPad or Apple TV the sort is as siwilson mentioned above.  I just discovered a temp work around for events with less than 1000 pictures, if I sort by Title I can get them to show correctly on the ATV and iPad. Now what was/is interesting is somethimes they would sort correct and sometimes not.  It turns out that if you sort the event by Title and quit iPhoto and reopen it....it has reverted back to sort by Date. It does that everytime. So what I do is turn home sharing off in iTunes (forces it to look at the photos again), open an iPhoto event and sort by Title.  Then I turn home sharing on in iTunes (leaving iPhoto open) and sync my iPad.  If I want ot stream photos to my ATV I must leave iPhoto open so the sort remains as I set it. If I want to retain the correct sort this is what I need to do each time. So this is a bandage for me until they fix things.  One final about pictures over 1000.....it sorts them as mentioned above with another twist, numbering goes 0001, 1000, 1001, 1002 etc.  @#$% why can't they just sort the way iPhoto presents them?

    How can I solve the problem în the subject?
    What exactly are you trying to do?
    Have you been editing photos in iPhoto and want to add them to your camera rool or photo stream?
    Then do exactly as the article describes, that you lonked to:

  • IOS photo edits not preserved when I upload to Revel

    I imported my SD card into my iPad.  Since I was not connected to the Internet, I did not immediately upload my pictures to Revel.  I edited them (crop, exposure, etc.) using the built in iOS tools.  They looked great.  However, when I imported them into Revel all my edits were gone.
    Can't Revel preserve the iOS edits?
    I am using the latest iOS release and the Revel 2.0.

    You are correct that the app works this way. This  is part of the design decision for Revel to always preserve your original photo, despite edits and changes that applied on top of the original.
    If you wish to work around this and import the edit, then in the iOS Photos app, view the photo you want to import into Revel.  Long press the image until ‘Copy’ is displayed, and select that.  Switch over to Revel, and tap ‘Add.’  At the bottom of the grid of images, you’ll see “Clipboard” and the edited version of the image.  Import this, and you will have iOS-edited image in Revel. After importing this way, Revel will not be able to revert this image to its original form.

  • HT5457 Help! I used to upload photos via ios and it was always published up to my 5th photos, but on the 6th, it just go to ios photos album and was not published on my fb's timeline...

    Help! I used to upload photos via ios and it was always published up to my 5th photos, but on the 6th, it just go to ios photos album and was not published on my fb's timeline...

    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. .

  • IOS photo app vs iPhoto, keywords, smart albums, face detection?

    greetings,
    i have some questions about iOS photos app in comparison to iPhoto (in 10.8).  i've done a little searching on the web and in the forum, but didn't see this covered...
    i always sync my iPhone to my mac, copy/import my photos to iPhoto, and use iPhoto to organize my photos.  in iPhoto, i tag photos (keywords) and use "smart albums" to access all my photos based upon the keyword tags.  face detection in iPhoto is GREAT!.   i have all my friends faces named and finding them by "people" grouping is fantastic.  the down side to all of this is that i have everything working great on my mac, but usually i'm using the photos app in the iPhone to show pics to my friends since that is what i have with me.  i'm not sure if this information in iPhoto ever gets synced back to my iPhone. 
    1- does the iOS photos app have any of these features from iPhoto? 
         in other words, can i tag photos, lable the faces of friends, set up smart albums in iOS photos?  if so, please point me to some info.  i haven't seen an obvious way to do any of this. 
    2- can i sync what i do in iPhoto back to my iPhone?
         in other words, can i get the tags, peoples' names on their faces, and smart albums copied from iPhotos back to my iPhone?  is there some setting or command in iPhoto, or somewhere else?
    3- i just turned on photostream.  can/does this iPhoto data transfer via photostream to the iPhone?
    i have an iPhone 4.
    i am just about ready to upgrade from iOS 5 to iOS 6.  so if any of these features are specific to iOS 6, please let me know. 
    i'd appreciate it if you could mention if there is anything special about iOS in the iPad, because a friend has asked me how she can do in her iPad (iOS 6), what i do with iPhoto in my mac. 
    thank you for any suggestions or advice.

  • Direct upload from Photos app to Facebook & iOS Photos Album

    When I use the Photos app to upload photos to Facebook, it places all of the pictures in an album called iOSPhotos.  There is no option to post them just to my normal Facebook Timeline. In other words, I'm forced to select an Album.
    This is a problem because I get a huge mishmash of photos from different dates, times etc in this album called iOS Photos.  Instead of commenting on an individual upload, people end up commenting on the whole iOSPhotos album.  So you get a huge odd conversation appearing over time as more photos end up in there.
    Apple, could you please allow us to upload a photo to the timeline, without forcing it into a specific album?  Or to allow us to create a new Album on the fly?

    Once again, very aggressive and defensive response. Neither addresses the question nor aids in finding a workaround.
    The Facebook api is open to all, and allows any album or the timeline to be specified. Many other apps and platforms manage that. So the Facebook end of this is available and ready to use.
    It is an Apple choice to load to 1 specific album only, instead of offering the user a choice of album, or indeed the timeline. So the only part of this Facebook/Apple interface that needs a change to address this request is the Apple end.
    My Android kit does this nicely enough, as does my Macbook Pro , its just my IOS devices that struggle.
    It is Apple's absolute right to leave this as it is, presumably to nudge users further into the iCloud ecosystem, but it is a legitimate request and entirely within Apple's control to resolve.

  • "iOS Photos" album missing from Facebook drop down box

    I have an iPhone 5S running iOS 7.0.4. I want to post a Photo from the Camera Roll to Facebook. I tap on a Photo in Camera Roll and choose FaceBook. The Album field defaults to one of my existing Albums at the top of the list. When I scrool down through the list the iOS Photos album doesn't appear. Therefore any photo I upload via the Photo App appears on Facebook under a specific Album not Mobile Photos or iOS Photos. How do I get iOS Photos to appear at the top of the drop down box?
    Many Thanks!

  • Convert ios photo(mediapromise) into byteArray ?

    I've found some tutorial looks great and should work:

  • HT204264 iDevice Sync Query - IOS Photos & iCloud Photo Library over filling ipad iphone storage - what happens next?

    Device Sync Query - IOS Photos & iCloud Photo Library fills ipad iphone storage - what happens next?
    Quick question, when you select IOS Photo / IiCloud storage (photos are optimised etc) what happens when ipad / iphone storage is full and you now need to add new apps, photos etc?  In my case I have  3 * 64gb ipads & 2 * 128 gb iphone but these are all filling up with photos since enabling IOS Photo &  iCloud Photo Library (as all of my photos on each device are now copbined on every device as well as the cloud).  This has become a problem as when I try to sync my idevice I get the device full warning (and I am assuming I now need to delete apps / videos if I want to sync or make more space for new photos etc). As far as I can tell once you enable IOS Photos and iCloud all photos will upload at original resolution and download at idevice resolution and there is no way to select / control the photos you want to keep on phone  (eg if you delete photo on phone it will now delete the original on cloud).
    Couple of questions / Suggestions:
    - Will IOS Photos on IOS device  automatically lower resolution of pics or use thumbnails for old photos that are already in icloud to ensure that there is space on device for new photos,  apps videos music etc. Eg will old photos that have already been uploaded in icloud be replaced by new apps videos music etc (not sure that the IOS Sync or iCloud currently does this)
    - Is there away to limit control or limit the number of IOS photos that sync to each idevice (eg by starring photos)? I had a look and can not see away to select photos you want to keep or remove (without deleting them on cloud).  As per above I am hoping that the IOS sync and icloud systems are smart enough to replace Photos that have already upgraded to cloud with a lower quality / thumbnail to make more more room for new photos and apps (but not clear if this occurs)
    - If this is a problem now what happens once the new PHOTOS launches for OS Desktop eg will it add in all our photos from iphoto to the icloud then to the idevice as part of the OS PHOTOS UPGRADE. I have 15-30 gb of photos in IPHOTO that are now backing up to icloud, there needs to be away to only select starred photos or albums or every photo try to download to my iphone (which will kill my storage). There also needs to be away to keep photos on idevice (for those times when you do not have internet and can not download from iCloud to iDevice
    Apologies if I have missed something obvious and welcome any thoughts & answers.
    If there is no solution then Apple needs to look at this and highlight it as a risk to customers who switch as this is being sold as a way to minimise your device storage but can lead to to customers using up more  storage for photos on ipad iphone as a result of switch to IOS PHOTOS &
    iCloud Photo Library

    Things are not as dire as they might seem at first glance. My 66GB iPhoto Library became a 40GB iCloud Photo Library (~11K photos, ~300 videos) and only uses 2.2GB on my iPad and 2.4GB on my iPhone. Scaling that experience, a 64GB/128GB iOS device should be able to easily handle a 300GB iPhoto library. My iPad and iPhone are 32GB devices and I expect them to be livable through at least 30-40K of photos.
    16GB devices have always been problematic for space even before iCloud Photo Library so I'd expect anybody with a 16GB device and more than a few thousand photos is not going to be able to use iCloud Photo Library with it. They will have to use iCloud Photo Streaming to get photos to iCloud Photo Library and iCloud Photo Sharing or iTunes syncing to get a subset of photos back to the device. Not a great solution but workable. However, it wrecks one of the best features for me which is using my iPad to edit the photos I take on my iPhone.
    The part that worries me is the automatic space management routine. The problem it creates is that I might want to add a movie, but there won't be enough space, and my only option will be to reset iCloud Photo Library on the device to get back to all thumbnails on it to see if that gets me the space I need. I've already had to do it a couple of times with iTunes Match and it's not fun. It all depends on how aggressive Photo Library will be in trimming off full-size photos/videos and Apple appears to be leaving it a black box at this point. It would at least be nice to know an estimate of the minimum size so I know how much space I can recapture.

  • IOS Photo & Video Backup to NAS

    Hi,
    I know subjects like this have been covered previously, but i can't find anything that is recent so hence the re-ask.
    I'm looking for a solution to backup my iOS photos and videos from both my iPhone 5 and iPad Air to a NAS drive without a requirement to plug into a Mac/PC.
    I've found a number of solutions from Synology and WD MyCloud using their designated apps, but which is the best and most efficient?
    I'd like it to backup on a weekly basis or similar without too much additional interaction required - I guess similar to the backup to iCloud but to hardware in my home rather than internet storage.
    Thanks
    Andy

    I have a sonology that have served me well
    I have an external wd bybook which broke after 1 year
    not sure how many of us tested enough solution to really give you a lot of insights into pro and cons of the various solutions think you can likely google some reviews of the various ways vs, eachoter

  • IOS Photos - Proper Cloud Backup & Managemetn

    Am I missing a major point here, or is there a big gap in the iOS, iTunes, iCloud design for photo management the way most people (I would guess) want to do it? Excuse the underlining - brevity isn't my forte so trying to highlight the key points.
    Here's what I'd like to be able to do:
    Use any/all of my iPad and iPhone devices to take photos and also eat photos from my other cameras via SD card reader
    Process the photos on an iPad (view, edit, delete), so I don't have to go to a desktop/laptop to do that
    Have the photos stored in a cloud in a way that provides privacy (I still own and control them), ability to view online, ability to point others to them online, ability to manage them online including downloading originals etc etc.  Thus not forcing me to rely on local PCs, PC backups, etc etc for photo safety.
    Not have to do anything active in order for my photos to be copied to the cloud (don't want to have to remember to sit down at a computer and waste time curating my photos, after having already done that on my iPad)
    (When I say "photos" I mean little videos taken on my iOS devices and cameras also)
    My understanding of what iOS and iCloud provide is (right or wrong):
    New photos taken on each iPhone/iPad can be shared to other iOS devices on the same iTunes account using PhotoStream and iCloudBut this is just for convenient sharing across devices (not really a backup tool, keeps a rolling window or recent photos, photos aren't available online in iCloud anywhere)
    New photos taken on each device are backed up to your iTunes computer (if you choose to) and iCloud (if you choose to)
    But you can't see or use those photos on your iTunes computer - they are just part of a device backup
    And you can't see those photos online in iCloud - again, they are just part of a backup blob
    So this is all just about getting a single device back to how it was previously, including the photos it had on it at the time of the backup
    This doesn't copy photos to anywhere central or usable/viewable etc
    It also doesn't help create a single central repository of photos either on your computer or in the cloud
    You can set iTunes to sync a photos folder with your iOS device
    But this is about getting photos from the computer onto the iOS device.  It isn't about actually synchronising photos between the device and that folder
    So the photos from your device don't end up on your computer that way (ie no help at all for what I am after)
    You can use an PhotoStream app on your computer to be a client of the PhotoStream for your iTunes/iCloud account
    Again, this is just a moving windows of most recent photos so doesn't really help much with photo centralisation for backup
    Also, if there is a way to scrape the photos off PhotoStream to a central repository on your computer, it would involve sitting down and doing that manually (don't know if this is even possible)
    Therefore, as far as I can tell, iOS, iTunes and iCloud do not provide what I am after, at least not out of the box
    Independently of iOS, iTunes and iCloud:
    I know I can plug my iOS device(s) into a PC and manually copy the photos off each device them using the PC OS (Windows, OS X, whatever) support for media storage devices over USBBut this is a manual process per device, so doesn't happen automagically and therefore doesn't meet my requirements
    I know I can use the Dropbox iOS app to sync my photos from each individual device to Dropbox
    But this isn't really a central repository of photos in the cloud (think it is done on a device-by-device basis and not sure how well it deals with photos that exist on multiple devices - ie duplication etc)
    Also I may not want to use Dropbox (not stoked about their security and privacy commitments)
    I am prepared to use a third party service for managing the photos from a PC into the cloud
    I already use JungleDisk and Duplicati and am happy to configure these to copy my photos to some independent cloud storage, at least for backup purposes
    I can also open an account with Flickr, SmugMug, Picassa etc and get more online photo control that way.
    However, to do that I first have to get my photos into one central location, eg on a PC, and then I can then run a process on the PC to auto-sync from that location to the cloud
    I don't think about photos on a per-device basis.  I think about them on a single-central-library basis.  I would guess most people do.  And iOS devices are a major source of new photos these days, and I like the idea of pre-managing my library from iOS devices because it is nice and easy and you can do it in front of the TV etc in a different mind-set from opening a laptop or going to a computer. But I need to end up with all those photos as viewable and manageable in one place, and I'd ideally like that one place to be a functional, secure cloud that respects my ownership and privacy. And I'd like to avoid having to schedule my brain to remember to sit down and do active things on a computer/laptop in order to achieve that.  That is very 20th Century and not very "cloud" or "iOS".  At this point I can't seem to work out how to even get all the photos into a single place on a single computer in order to manage my own cloud syncing from there.
    Am I missing anything?

    Am I missing a major point here, or is there a big gap in the iOS, iTunes, iCloud design for photo management the way most people (I would guess) want to do it? Excuse the underlining - brevity isn't my forte so trying to highlight the key points.
    Here's what I'd like to be able to do:
    Use any/all of my iPad and iPhone devices to take photos and also eat photos from my other cameras via SD card reader
    Process the photos on an iPad (view, edit, delete), so I don't have to go to a desktop/laptop to do that
    Have the photos stored in a cloud in a way that provides privacy (I still own and control them), ability to view online, ability to point others to them online, ability to manage them online including downloading originals etc etc.  Thus not forcing me to rely on local PCs, PC backups, etc etc for photo safety.
    Not have to do anything active in order for my photos to be copied to the cloud (don't want to have to remember to sit down at a computer and waste time curating my photos, after having already done that on my iPad)
    (When I say "photos" I mean little videos taken on my iOS devices and cameras also)
    My understanding of what iOS and iCloud provide is (right or wrong):
    New photos taken on each iPhone/iPad can be shared to other iOS devices on the same iTunes account using PhotoStream and iCloudBut this is just for convenient sharing across devices (not really a backup tool, keeps a rolling window or recent photos, photos aren't available online in iCloud anywhere)
    New photos taken on each device are backed up to your iTunes computer (if you choose to) and iCloud (if you choose to)
    But you can't see or use those photos on your iTunes computer - they are just part of a device backup
    And you can't see those photos online in iCloud - again, they are just part of a backup blob
    So this is all just about getting a single device back to how it was previously, including the photos it had on it at the time of the backup
    This doesn't copy photos to anywhere central or usable/viewable etc
    It also doesn't help create a single central repository of photos either on your computer or in the cloud
    You can set iTunes to sync a photos folder with your iOS device
    But this is about getting photos from the computer onto the iOS device.  It isn't about actually synchronising photos between the device and that folder
    So the photos from your device don't end up on your computer that way (ie no help at all for what I am after)
    You can use an PhotoStream app on your computer to be a client of the PhotoStream for your iTunes/iCloud account
    Again, this is just a moving windows of most recent photos so doesn't really help much with photo centralisation for backup
    Also, if there is a way to scrape the photos off PhotoStream to a central repository on your computer, it would involve sitting down and doing that manually (don't know if this is even possible)
    Therefore, as far as I can tell, iOS, iTunes and iCloud do not provide what I am after, at least not out of the box
    Independently of iOS, iTunes and iCloud:
    I know I can plug my iOS device(s) into a PC and manually copy the photos off each device them using the PC OS (Windows, OS X, whatever) support for media storage devices over USBBut this is a manual process per device, so doesn't happen automagically and therefore doesn't meet my requirements
    I know I can use the Dropbox iOS app to sync my photos from each individual device to Dropbox
    But this isn't really a central repository of photos in the cloud (think it is done on a device-by-device basis and not sure how well it deals with photos that exist on multiple devices - ie duplication etc)
    Also I may not want to use Dropbox (not stoked about their security and privacy commitments)
    I am prepared to use a third party service for managing the photos from a PC into the cloud
    I already use JungleDisk and Duplicati and am happy to configure these to copy my photos to some independent cloud storage, at least for backup purposes
    I can also open an account with Flickr, SmugMug, Picassa etc and get more online photo control that way.

  • In iOS Photos app, how do I get photo to go to a different album?

    In Photos on an iPad4, I want to move some photos from one album to another or from PhotoStream or Camera Roll to an album.  I recall the process being...
    1.  Select an album.  Press Edit.  Select the pictures you want to move.  Click Add to...   Choose whether to Add to existing album OR Add to a New album.  I choose Existing album and up pops a header saying Add to Album with my chosen number of photos below and the available albums. 
    WHAT NEXT?  I believe I used to be able to simply tap on the target album and in would go the selected photos.  Now, I have a Cancel button in the upper right.  No other buttons and no combination of touches, taps, holds, seems to have any effect on anything...
    Is this a bug in a latest release of iOS?
    Thanks

    1. Tap Edit on top right
    2. Select photo for new Folder
    3. Tap Add To...
    4. Give folder a name

  • IOS Photos app bug

    I didn't know where to submit this to apple, so hopefully someone reads it.
    Since about 2 iOS updates ago, I've noticed a bug in the regular Photos app. When switching back to Albums view after looking at Places, the list of albums will start at the very top of the screen (behind the clock, and app controls) making it impossible to click on the Camera Roll.
    You have to go to the App Switched and kill the photos app to get it to work properly again.

    Ah, now I see it's a well known problem...
    It's been happening since 4.3, have they missed it in the last couple releases?
