.Nef is Nikon's RAW image identifier. See if there's an update for iPhoto at Mac website. Perhaps your camera (if it's new) is not yet set up to upload to iPhoto. You didn't indicate what camera you're using.

NEF is the Nikon version of Raw image processing. You need the Nikon raw processing software on your Mac. If you don't have that, then set your camera's raw format to DNG.

How to reduce picture file size on my Mac


Where are the photos?
If they are in iPhoto, select the one you want and email it to yourself. iPhoto will then ask you what size you want to send the pictuire.Once you have received the image you can then upload it in its new size.
Seems inelegant but it works.

I use a mac. Have all pictures stored on iphone and would love to know how to get the photos to my photo frame. Not sure how to get pictures from iphoto to a memory card or whatever it is I need to do.


Use iPhoto to get the images off your iPhone and onto your Mac, then export you selected images to a media format the photo frame support.
Now without knowing the requirements of the photo frame but going to guess it accepts and USB thumb drive. Once you have imported your images into iPhoto from your iPhone, plug in the USB thumb drive to your Mac. In iPhoto, select the images you wish to move to your photo frame ( either select an album or individual images). Then go to the File Menu and pull down to Export and save the images to your Thumb drive. For best results for image quality on the photo frame you will want to match the export size with the native resolution of the photo frame.

Why can't I upload my photos from my finepix s1500 onto my mac? It opened the files in my iphoto but they showed up as blank boxes and "Error downloading images - iPhoto cannot import your photos...


Is this a new problem - that is, did it work in the past? Are you trying to import jpeg or raw?

First thing is to see if it is iphoto or the camera that has a problem.

Try uploading the images to another computer (try a PC - not that it is better, but PC is different). If the images can be seen & read there, the images are likely fine and iphoto may need an upgrade to read the format from the finepix s1500. Alternately, try copying the photos from your memory card (use a memory card reader) to your hard disk. See if another application can see the images (even use a word processor to import image), or e-mail the image to yourself and then use your web-browser to see the image.

If the camera images can't be read by multiple computers/multiple readers, then it may be that your memory card is corrupted.

Camera will not connect with Mac


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your Mac.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I am trying to download pics from my Nikon coolpx to my IMac but iphoto does not recognize the camera - what do I need to do?


First, make sure that the Computer recognizes the Camera when connected to it using the USB cable.

When the computer recognizes the connected camera then a "No name" drive appears on the Desktop of the computer.

If the Computer is recognizing the Camera but iPhoto then follow the steps given below to transfer images from the Camera to the Computer:

Double-click the "No name" removable drive on the Desktop to view and navigate through the folders and files on the Camera.

You can see several folders, you may either navigate through each folder to locate the folder that contains the pictures or double click the "DCIM" folder to view all the images.
Next, copy all the desired images then paste them on the Hard Drive of the Computer.

Lost iphoto back catalog after an import, is there anyway to recover these photos?


the back catalog of your images are not gone. Since the pictures you have uploaded form your camera to iPhoto all those files are still there. All you need to do is re-load the images into the library of iPhoto.
1) Start iPhoto, then in the menu goto File / Add to library..
2) Then a file browsing window will open, all you need to do is locate the folder in which u had specified to iPhoto. (Default location for iPhoto is located at MainHD / Users / Username / Pictures / iPhoto Library
3) Once you have located the folder or folders you wish to add to your library or catalog just press import. And all the images should show in the catalog.
4) if you have more pictures saved in another folder, then repeat steps 1 to 3 again. but in step 2 locate the folder or drive you wish to import from.

Can't get pics to my mac computer, won't transfer.


When you get the popup from iPhoto don't click on any iPhoto buttons. Instead, click on command+tab and change to your Finder application (leaving iPhoto open in the background).

1) Create a new folder on your Desktop or in your Pictures folder. This is where you will copy your photo files.

2) Click on File, then New Finder window. Size these finder windows so you can see both of them at the same time. In the second window, go to your computer, and then to the drive that represents the memory card in your camera.

3) Drag and drop to copy the files from the camera's memory card Finder window to the new folder Finder window, dropping the files into the new folder on your computer's hard drive.

4) Use command+tab to change back to iPhoto. Cancel from the import warning window. In iPhoto click on File then Import to Library

5) In the import dialog tell iPhoto to move the photos (not to import them in their current location) so that iPhoto puts the photos in the same place it put your other photos when it imported them directly from the camera.

If you can't do all of these steps, tell me how far you got, and what happened.

IPhoto says camera contains no photos, camera says memory card full


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:
