recently upgraded to iPhoto11 after insistent prompting from application to upgrade...what a disaster. I have lost an event that was previously available in iPhoto9 but there is seemingly no easy way to recover the files in iPhoto11. Technology is supposed to move forwards not backwards.

 

There is no mention of the fact that iPhoto11 will lock access to YOUR photo's into an inaccessible directory controlled by Apple meaning there is no way to move or recover individual files.

 

PS does anyone know an easy way to extracite oneself from the clutches of iPhoto, I would like to move or at least copy my photo's into a more reliable flexible app.

 

Michael,

    launch iPhoto and in the iPhoto preferences set action when a comera is connecte to your shoice or to do nothing - quit iPhoto and Right click on the iPhoto library and show package contents - drag the masters folder to the desktop and trash the iPhoto library - your original photos will be in the masters flolder and you can use any program you wish to manage your photos

     

    Have a nice day

    Oh boy.

     

    What version were you updating from?

     

    There is no mention of the fact that iPhoto11 will lock access to YOUR photo's into an inaccessible directory controlled by Apple (the arrogant sh*ts) meaning there is no way to move or recover individual files.

     

    Well here's to the clueless, bless them everywhere. Your photos are locked into nothing, you just don't know how to use the app. And this has been the way with every version of iPhoto since iPhoto 6. Really. Take a few minutes to learn how to use the app before sounding off. Search the forum for any of the thousands and thousands of posts that tell you how to access your files. Really.
