Hi everyone !

 

I have an album with almost 180 pics, 18M pixel each, both landscape and portrait... I want to share these pictures, and I use the extract function. When I use a specific maximum dimension (1280px) or any other defined dimension (small, medium etc...), lanscape pictures are correctly resized, but not portrait pictures, that stay at their original dimension...

 

Is it a bug ? Is it something I'm doing wrong ?

 

Pictures come from a Canon 550D camera.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iPhoto 9.4.2

    The max dimension should apply to portrait as well and landscape.  Try this:  launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and create a new, test library.  Import some photos and check to see if the same problem persists.

    Option 1

    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Repair Database. If that doesn't help, then try again, this time using Rebuild Database.

     

    If that fails:

     

    Option 2

    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In Library Manager it's the FIle -> Rebuild command)

     

     

    This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.

     

     

    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. 

    Regards

    and 6Go free

     

    And that's the basis of your problem:

     

    OS X needs about 10 gigs of hard drive space for normal OS operations - things like virtual memory, temporary files and so on. Without this space your Mac will slow down as the OS hunts for space on the disk, files will be fragmented, also slowing things down, apps will crash and the risk of data corruption - that is damage to your files, photos, music - increases exponentially. Your first priority is to make more space on that HD. Nothing else can be done until you do. Purchase an external HD and move your Photos and Music to it. Both iPhoto and iTunes can run perfectly well with the Library on an external disk.

    Also if you use iDVD you should try to have a minimum of 20 GB free.

    If those TV shows were downloaded from the iTunes store they may be DRM and not be able to be burned thru iDVD.  I'm not  familiar with iTunes TV episodes but DRM music from the iTunes store won't work in iDVD.  Check with one of the episodesd.

    It's strongly recommended that one maintain a minimum of 10 GB of free space on the boot drive for optimal system and application performance, more if possible.  If you use iDVD then that should be a minimum of 20 GB free space.
