Specs: iPhoto 9.4.2 on MBP retina w/ML 10.8.2.
I exported all videos from iPhoto to my desktop but the videos were still in iPhoto library after export. I learned that exporting them would remove them, according to a onetoone session recently.
I then tried copying all the videos from iPhoto and pasting them into a folder on my desktop, but only 452 out of the 618 videos that were selected and copied were pasted. I want to remove all videos and video thumbnails if any, from my current iPhoto library. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I just thought I could move them without deleting from iPhoto.?
You can't move thing from iPhoto. You export them, and then if you no longer want them in iPhoto you delete them.
Also, I know I'm not supposed to manipulate files in iPhoto from Finder, but that would definitely give me the desired result I'm looking for. Is there no way to do it from Finder without messing up the library?
There is aboslutely no way to this from the Finder without corrupting the Library.
