You need to export these pictures to your hard disk and then an external hard disk. Pictures take a lot of RAM. You can buy more RAM for your computer and pictures will open.

I had to this to open my family history with 7 generations including pictures.

Lost my photos on iphone 5

Slim chance, but if they were important to you, you could try this.

It won't try to recover photos from your phone because iPhone 5 is not supported yet, but you can try letting it recover them from the iTunes backup file even though they were not successfully backed up.

I don't think there are many or any other options, so depending on how important they are to you, you can try it.

My digital photo keychain album

My instruction booklet says:
IMPORTANT: The keychain MUST be plugged in and in "update" mode in order for you to open the Photo Viewer progarm. If it is not plugged in, or is in the wrong mode, you will get the following error" No photo viewer is found, program terminated!
2. Once the keychain is plugged in and in "update" mode double click the Photo Viewer icon on your desktop to launch the application. (I wasn't able to double click the Photo Viewer icon at all, so I don't know what else to do). And for the rest of you that are able to double click it, I will give you the instructions.
3. Use Photo Viewer's file manager to browse photos on your computer.
4. Once you select a photo, it will show up in the crop marquee. Put the box over the area that you want to see on your keychain and click the POST button (arrow to the right). This will move your photos to the collection panel.
5. Delete any unwanted photos by selecting the image in the collection panel and clicking the X button from the menu bar.
6. Once you have all photos in the collection panel that you want on your keychain, click the "synchronized" button. At the bottom of your screen, you will see that the status has changed from "idle " to "download" and the black bar will show %complete.
7. Once the download is 100% complete and you get the following message, "photo viewer data synchronized complete", click OK, exit the progam and disconnect the keychain.

IMPORTANT: Do not disconnect the Digital Photo Keychain until the download is complete and you exit the photo viewer software.

Software--Innovage Digital Photo Keychain

found that on another site - after I had the same trouble - this software really works - updated the pic frame in no time :)

IT IS an easy fix...uninstall the Picture Viewer that you got from the Disc they gave...Throw it away. Go to at the top of the keychain section, it says "download".............. THIS version works.

Can't load photos to computer

Try using Windows Explorer or a similar folder and file locating program to find the camera. In Explorer, choose My Computer and look down the list that opens. If your camera is "seen" by the computer, it will appear in the list and you should be able to retrieve the pictures from there, just like finding and opening other folders and files. If not, the problem is most likely on the camera or cable, not the software or computer.
