IPhoto in Leopard: photos not available
AdvertisementIn Tiger, if you opened the Pictures folder you would be able to access all of your iPhoto pix through all the various years' folders. Now in Leopard, when you open the "Pictures" folder all you get is a generic "iPhoto Library" icon (clicking on it just opens iPhoto). Where are the photos now?!
My main issue is that I am trying to reconnect several photos into a Final Cut Pro project. When it asks for the location, I can't direct it to a particular folder like I could in Tiger. Instead I can only point it to this "iPhoto Library" icon which does nothing.
Anybody know where the iPhoto pix are now kept...and how I can access the folders thru FCP?
Thanks for your help!
Welcome to the Apple Discussions.
This has nothing to do with 10.4. iPhoto 08 is the same on 10.4 too.
With iPhoto 7 (iLife 08) the old iPhoto Library Folder is now a Unix Style Package File. The change was made to the format of the iPhoto library because many users were inadvertently corrupting their library by browsing through it with other software or making changes in it themselves.
There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:
For 10.5 users: You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Apple-Click for selecting multiple pics.
Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
To upload to a site that does not have an iPhoto Export Plug-in the recommended way is to Select the Pic in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export and export the pic to the desktop, then upload from there. After the upload you can trash the pic on the desktop. It's only a copy and your original is safe in iPhoto.
This is also true for emailing with Web-based services. If you're using Gmail you can use THIS
If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
Or, if you want to access the files with iPhoto not running, then create a Media Browser using Automator (takes about 10 seconds) or use THIS
Other options include:
1. *Drag and Drop*: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
2. *File -> Export*: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.
3. *Show File*: Right- (or Control-) Click on a pic and in the resulting dialogue choose 'Show File'. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.
To reconnect to the FCP project you'll need to export the pics to a folder.
