The new photos app doesn't show all of the thumbnails for my Photostream photos, how can I make them show?

I recently updated my mid-2010 Macbook Pro 15 inch to 10.10.3 Yosemite and I am now using the new Photos app. My Photostream shows missing thumbnails for more of the recent photos, I let it sit for an hour and they still don't show. Any tips to make the thumbnails show quickly? I have tried disabling photostream and reactivating it which didn't work. The thumbnails do eventually show only if I view each specific photo, but it would take forever to select each one to make the thumbnail show

Hi,
Thanks for that  tip and I got as far as that as well with Apple Support but for me the subsequent syncing doesn't work.
I have just returned from another visit at the Apple Store where their top level Genius (if such a thing exists) wanted to see it for himself. Rather worryingly, neither he nor Apple head office has an answer for why this isn't working.
To summarise,  I connect my iPhone 6 (all up to date) with my MBA/iTunes via USB cable. The sync tab under the iPhone allows me to sync my photos via USB and I get a dropdown menu to chose from iPhoto or Photos Sync. Both libraries in same location but iPhoto works, but Photos says there are 0 pictures and won't sync...
The Apple genius was going to try it himself tonight at home. He has my number and has promised to phone. In the meantime my question remains. For those of you who do not use the Cloud for storing pictures could you please confirm the sync is working for you as described above. Thanks

  • Albums with multiple artists do not show up as one album in my library. How can I make them do this WITHOUT having to put all such albums in a playlist so they actually play properly?

    Basically, I just got the Matrix Reloaded album off a friend of mine.
    The album itself is comprised of multiple contributing artists.
    Now, in any other media player, it would happily declare the album to be the product of Various Artists and leave it at that.
    iTunes, on the other hand, seems to think I need one album titled "Matrix Reloaded" for every single artist who contributed, which not only looks hideous (I have enough trouble navigating the "Albums" page as is since it's not in any kind of alphabetical order) but also makes it a pain if I just want to put the album on to play and do something else.
    The same thing occurs with another album, one of the Red vs Blue soundtracks by Jeff Williams; two of the songs in it are from "Jeff Williams & Steve Goldshein" which iTunes seems to think merits a whole seperate album which is entirely redundant.
    At the moment I'm getting by through somewhat-length creation of playlists so I can actually listen to albums with the tracks where they're meant to be, but this should not even be necessary in the first place.
    All my music currently is from when I made the jump from WMP after buying an iPod Touch, none of it was actually bought through iTunes.

    Generally setting a common Album title and Album Artist will fix things. For compilations of tracks by different artists set the album artist to Various Artists and also set Part of a compilation to Yes on the Options tab.
    For deeper problems see Grouping tracks into albums.

  • When an album has multiple artist how can you make them show up on an iPod Touch 4G? I can find an artist using the search function but they don't show up in the artist view on my iPod. iTunes shows them OK when you sort by artist.

    Tech support seemed to understand the question but had no answer. Why would an album with only one artist show the artist but an album with multiple artist not show any of them. The album art show various in iTunes. That makes sense but on my iPod I would expect to see all artists.

    Wish I did. I tried the group function but that didn't help in iTunes. The search function is the best I came up with. I can answer the question do you have susch and such artist. But I can't browse for an artist I don't remember exactly or have misspelled. Fortunately I don't think I've bought anything from iTunes that i already had. If you can't see an artist it's possible you think you don't have something you actually do have. Sorry, still hoping for a better work around or better yet a fix.

    Hi, Abril_Perez17.
    This may be related to a new feature embedded in iOS7 that shows all purchased music by default.  Go to Settings > Music, then turn off Show All Music.  See if the issue ceases once the feature has been disabled.  This information is located on page 63 of the user guide below.

    Does my problem has anything to do with SSL for mail settings? Cause when I tried re-adding it says something that I should try without SSL, and I did what you said and it gives me this "The IMAP server pop.mail.yahoo.com is not responding. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the incoming mail server field". Ahh.. this is so annoying, Apple what are you doing to me?! Or is Yahoo doing this to me?!
    Thank you for your time. Sorry it doesn`t work.

  • I synced the photos to my ipad from my pc which i dont have now. How can i delete them now ?

    I synced the photos to my ipad from my pc which i dont have now. How can i delete them now ?

    Do you normally sync to a computer? I ended up in the same boat when I'd synced some photos on, then got a new computer and forgot to remove the photos. What I had to do was set up to sync an empty folder on my new computer, which basically erased the old photos, replaced them with the nothing that was in the new folder.

    If your photos are in iPhoto or on your computer, then they are not lost. If you delete them from the iPad you have a major problem. You can check this out: iPad Data Recovery - Undelete & Rescue Lost Files from iPad.

    Hi,
    No need to post three times!
    Is iTunes Match still turned on on your iPhone? If not, you need to turn it back on.
    If it is still on, go to settings, music app and turn off match- sign out of iTunes Store. Reboot iPhone, sign back into iTunes and turn on match. Poem music app. Does this help?

  • I require an update to Camera Raw for CS6 for the new Olympus 4/3 OMD E-M5 MARK II to process my images.  How can I get this?

    I require an update to Camera Raw for CS6 for the new Olympus 4/3 OMD E-M5 MARK II to process my images.  How can I get this?

    You may need to purge your Bridge cache for the folder with Mark II raws in it using:
    Bridge / Tools / Cache / Purge Cache For Folder current-folder-name
    I can see Mark II files in Bridge 5.0.2 for CS6 after installing the ACR 8.8 update, but I didn't try viewing thumbnails in the folder before I had ACR 8.8 so there were no cached "cannot read this file" thumbnails..
    If purging the cache and letting it rebuild doesn't work check to see what version of ACR Bridge has by using ridge / Edit / Camera Raw Preferences... (that's the Windows menu path).  Here is what I see:

    Since updating to FireFox 29. there are a lot of FaceBook Friend's posted photos are blank now. How do I make them show?

    If images are missing then check that you do not block images from some domains.
    *Tap the Alt key or press F10 to show the Menu bar.
    Check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
    Check "Tools > Page Info > Media" for blocked images
    *Select the first image link and use the cursor Down key to scroll through the list.
    *If an image in the list is grayed and "<i>Block Images from...</i>" has a checkmark then remove this checkmark to unblock images from this domain.
    Make sure that you do not block (third-party) images, the <b>permissions.default.image</b> pref on the <b>about:config</b> page should be 1.
    Make sure that you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the Windows/Mac Accessibility settings.
    Make sure that you allow pages to choose their own colors.
    *Tools > Options > Content : Fonts & Colors > Colors : [X] "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above"
    Note that these settings affect background images.
    See also:

    There are extensions like Adblock Plus (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and security software (firewall, anti-virus) that can block images and other content.
