Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

Importing photos into I Photo

When I import photos into I Photo (either from the 'Pictures' in hard drive
or off a 'thumb drive') I Photo automatically puts them in chronological order / the order in which the pictures were originally taken.
I would like them in a different sequence, for artistic reasons, and have even renamed them so their number sequence names could be the method
of ordering, but every time I try they come into the 'Event' chronological again.

How do I over ride this I Photo characteristic?

thanks
Lynda

Sounds like the photos are imported based on creation date. Changing the file name will not change the order in which they are added. iPhoto looks at the files as if you were developing film. The pictures load in the order they were taken (created)
I do not belive there is a way around this unless you can somehow change the creation date before you import.

How can i download my picture from desktop to my i phone


Using "Photo Stream" to transfer photos from PC to iPhone automatically with iCloud is pretty convenient. Go to "Settings > iCloud > Photos (Photo Stream on iOS 6)" and then turn on My Photo Stream. Then get your iCloud started on your PC. In the iCloud Control Panel, Check the "Photos" and then enable the "Photo Stream" option. After that, import the photos into the "Photo Stream" folder on your PC, and then you will be able to view the photos on your iPhone. Using iCloud to transfer photos from computer to iPhone is easy, but this method needs Wi-Fi connection. Only over Wi-Fi connection can iCloud sync photo on PC with iPhone.

Recovery?


Since you are runing under Mac OS X, NO 1 choice is rely on Time Machine to recover from backup. If you do not set Time Machine, then you probably need a Mac data recovery software. But the first thing you need to take care is do not put more items to the Macintosh HD where those trashed stuff originally located. Learn more from this article recover emptied Trash Mac for more helpful information. Best regards.

How to make videos on macintosh


Dear sir,
You can make videos by using iMovie software installed on your system.
Plug in virtually any digital camcorder and iMovie starts importing your video. Then iMovie helps you organize your video just as you organize photos: by putting everything in one central location and grouping video clips according the date they were taken. So it’s easy to find the clips you’re looking for — whether to watch or to edit. Don’t have a camcorder? You can still use iMovie: It displays video you captured on your still camera and imported into iPhoto.

have a nice day
good luck

Trying to install Olympus Digital wave recorder software on new Imac


Mac OS-X should recognize the camera without having to install software.  Plug the camera into the USB port and turn it on.  It should appear on the desktop as an external hard drive.  It may also start iPhoto up in import mode.  You can also import photos by selecting "Add to Library" from the drop down menu.

Incomplete importing in iTunes 8.0.1


Try simply copying the media from the finder. Click the CD in your sidebar, and drag the data inside to the desktop or where ever inside your drive. If it works ok here, then itunes is your problem, otherwise its hardware I'm sorry to say. If it is hardware, try a CD cleaner. If it works in the finder fine, go to *your home folder*/Preferences/com.apple.itunes.plist and delete that file.

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.
