Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

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.

Problem importing pictures on pc from Nikon D3100


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

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.

How can I transfer my photos from private pics to the camera roll on my Iphone?


The camera roll is a place where all your new pictures go. You cant transfer things back into the camera roll without a ton of effort. You could save the photos to an app and then when you save them back, they will be in the camera roll but im pretty sure you would have to do this for each individual photo.
