Everytime i take pictures in photobooth the images drops down. But when i quit the application the picture i just took disappears. I tried to re write the privilages on it and everyone says "read and write". Also another thing is that i CAN NOT delete my photos at all. I click the small "x" button to delete the photo and it's gone but when i re-open photo booth the picture is still there. Someone please help me. I went to apple care-genius bar for this and they never fully fixed it.


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    So what did they do?  What reason did they give for not "fixing" it?  I find it strange that you took your computer in to be "fixed" and returned it to you "unfixed" with no explanation.

    They fixed my iphoto which kept importing the same images over and over again. I did the disk recovery to repair the permissions but that did not work either. Just this year alone i went to apple care genius bar at least 8 times because they could not complete a job completely and my laptop has never been the same. Btw ive only had it for a year and a few months.

    1 - your original question does not involve iPhoto which is what this forum is about

     

    2 - your iPhoto unimported photos issues is solved by

    Quit iPhoto and to to the iPhoto library (by default in your pictures folder) - right click (control click) on it and select show package contents - find the folder named import (or importing) and drag it to the desktop - DO NOT MAKE ANY OTHER CHANGES - launch iPhoto and you will be fine.

     

     

    Open the import(ing) folder and if there is nothing in it that you need move it to the trash and empty the trash

    I know iphoto has nothing to do with the discussion. I mentioned it to reply to the other guy and iphoto and photobooth are connected so it is important.

    Again this is the iPhoto forum - this forum has nothing to do with PhotoBooth in any way and is not a place to get PhotoBooth answers

     

    And there is no connection fo any sort between iPhoto and PhotoBooth

    No - this is NOT the PhotoBooth Forum and therefore we are NOT PhotoBooth experts - we are iPhoto users  --  if you go to German class and ask for help on Italian you will not get help - same in the iPhoto forum when yo ask questions about programs other than iPhoto

     

    We can not help with PhotoBooth  --  or with Excel  --  or with PhotoShop - to get help you need to ask in the proper place so the people you are asking know the answer

     

    Not one is trying to CORRECT you but to HELP you by helping you realize the error you have made and pointing to the proper place to ask your question

     

    Have a great day
