Can't get photos from MAC to load to Digital Photo Frame

I have an Insignia 8'' digital photo frame. When I plug in the USB cable to transfer pictures from my MAC, I get an error window saying the USB device is drawing to much power and the hub will be deactivated. How do I transfer my photos?

    What is your machine? Are you working from a USB hub? It's possible you are underpowered, yet there are solutions, but we need to know what we're dealing with. Has this ever worked for you? What are the Insignia system requirements--and do you meet them?

To connect to a Macintosh computer: 
1 Plug in and turn on the digital picture frame. 

2 Connect the small end of the usb cable to the usb port on the side of the digital picture frame. 

3 Connect the larger end of the usb cable to a USB port on your Macintosh computer. The Macintosh will recognize the digital picture frame as an external storage device, and an icon will appear representing the device.

4 Drag and drop your photos on to the icon...

5. After you finish, press the eject button, and disconnect the usb cable once the icon has dissappeared

If there is still a problem, try restarting the macbook. and make sure no other programs are running in the background that may interfere with the process. Also, make sure the laptop is plugged in, or the battery power is sufficient.

Hope this helps!

I accidentally deleted my pictures from peru ,how can i retrieve them back?

you need to explain where you deleted your photos from. If they were on a pc hard disk there may be software that allows you to undelete them. killdisk has such a utility. If you deleted them to your recycle bin are they still there. If they were on flash media you might have some serious problems. If the photos are very important to you contact a data recovery company and explain the situation, they will be able to give you advice but please check for reviews of their services before approaching them...some companies are more expert than others

How do i create a viedo

Go into Photo Booth
Red 4 pictured looking app like the photo attached! If you cannot find it, go to the top right hand corner and search for it.
Now that you have photo booth open, you will need to make sure the green light of you mac camera turns on when the app opens, (running other photographic programs in the background or webcam sites will stop your camera until closed) and out of the bottom row of buttons/options on the app (second picture) you will need to click on the 3rd button on the left, the two separated frames, and once you have done that the red button will turn to a videocamera instead of a normal one, and you can begin recording videos on your mac with special effects, etc. :)

Where do you put photo memory card in macbook pro

MacBook Pros before late 2009 contain no SD card slot for the photo memory card to be inserted into. Instead, leave the memory card in the camera, attach the camera via a USB cable and wait for the card to show up on the desktop.

Unable to email a picture from iPhoto library

This has nothing to do with the photo, you try to send. Just log in again to your mail and ask to remember the password on the mac.

Downloading Photos from iphone

The quickest and easiest way is to connect via cable and run iPhoto. It will bring all the photos in, seperate them into events etc.
if you have a .me account, photos you take on the iPhone can be automatically synchronised with all your apple or pc computers, as you take the picture.
Finally, if you're without a cable (say at work/friends house) simply email the photo to yourself, from the phone.

Pictures uploaded from my cellphone and are saved on my desktop

First close any application that you may have open that used the photo...or that you used to view or edit the photo.
The problem could be that the application or photo was in use. Usually it won't allow you to delete a file that is in use by a program.
Once you are sure that the applications are closed. then click on the photo (if this is a Mac) and press and hold down the the apple command key (one on each side of your spacebar) then hit the delete key. The item should disappear...(it moves it to the trash)
Or you can just drag and drop it to the trash.  
Hope this helps.  Have a great day!

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

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 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
