i do not have software


It depends on your operating system.

For Mac, use iPhoto, or if you are more experienced with digital photography, try Aperture.

For Windows, you can use Picasa or digiKAM.

**Picasa and digiKAM will also work for Mac, but iPhoto and Aperture will not work for PC.

"iPhoto makes managing your photos as easy as taking them. It helps you organize your photos so you can find them fast. Edit them so they look their best. And share them with your friends and family."

"You've taken a great shot. Now you're ready to make it even better. Aperture 3 gives you all the tools you need to turn your photography into so much more."

"Picasa is a software download from Google, that helps you organize, edit, and share your photos. The local application usage and the online storage up to 1 GB is free, and it is easy to use. The online version is called Picasa Web Albums."

"digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application for linux/KDE, which makes importing and organizing digital photos a "snap". The photos are organized in albums which can be sorted chronologically, by folder layout or by custom collections."

I have a 250gb G-Drive with 10.4 iMac and have transfer photos from iPhoto Library to the G- Drive to give more room in the library. Now I am trying to delete the photos still in the iPhoto Library that have been transfered into the G-Drive. When doing so they also delete the photos that were transfered to the G Drive. How can I keep the photos in the G- Drive and remove them from the iPhoto Library to get more capacity? Bill www.busbymill@sbcglobal.net


Hi,


1. Drag or export the photos to another device and delete the originals out of I photo. The problem with this is that you will no longer be able to revert those images to your originals. Using the export function for this gives you more options than drag and drop.

2. Hold down the option key when you open I photo will allow you to create a new I photo library on an external drive hooked to a USB. This means you have all the options of I photo, while storing the images somewhere else.

3. Copy and paste your entire existing I photo library to an external USB drive, then delete as much of your old library as you wish which could be all of it. Do this from your pictures folder on your hard drive, not I photo itself. This option allows your photos elsewhere while preserving all the I photo functions including your ability to revert to original.

Let us know if you want something else please accept the solution.

Thank You for contacting fixya.com

desktop thinks its an iphoto library


Go into iphoto and set the destination folder somewhere you want the photos and there should also be a preference like in itunes to keep the library clean or together choose that if it doesnt work still pick a new destination and move all your photos to there. You may have to drag and drop the photos back into Iphoto but that should do it.

Trying to scan a photo from my HP Photosmart 2575 to my Macbook


Hi,
You can't scan directly into iPhoto however the software that came with your HP scanner should have something that can. If you don't have the software you will need to download it from the much easier to navigate HP.com site. Once you have scanned them using HPScan you can transfer them into iPhoto by drag and drop from app to app or Finder to iPhoto.

All the best
