    Thank you LarryHN,

    I knew it was not the right thread to post this, as I said at the beginning of my post... but I thought I could ask... sorry!!!


    It was not my intention at all to confuse anybody... and I could not find in any thread something like what it is happening to my computer.

    How I could take out my previous question? Is it possible or not anymore?


    I have the fire wall activated as well, and I never had a virus since I use Mac (1997), I know it is not normal... but I can not fugure out what happends here.

    Everythig I describe in my post happend since some days, exactly since 28.01. and it seems very strange to me.



    The post has a question about iPhoto and the Photo-Stream on my iPhone as well: please see symptom 3.


    Thank you for your answer.

    5. On my iPhone the Photo-stream suddenly shows only 110 fotos from Dezember on, but in My MacBookPro the iPhoto Stream shows of course the lasts 1000 ones...from 25.01.2013 to 03.02.14 as it did allways before.

    I am not going to sync anything until I discover what is going on...

    iCloud contains onlhy the last 30 days or 1000 photos - which ever is less - those photos show up in your photostream on all devices using it - on each device you also see all of the photos that were added to the PS from that device since they are local - but they are not in iCloud and will not show on other devices - so there is no expectation that PS shows the same photos on all devices - each device has the iClous photos (last 30 days or 1000 photos) and local photos up to a total of 1000


    However threadJacking is a bad thing to do - and nothing in your post has anything at all to do with the thread you put it in - and it is confusing to you, me and everyone else

    Thank you Larry for your quick answers,


    what I can not understand is... why it was possible to see the lasts 1000 photos on my iPhone until the 28.01.14 and suddenly there are only 110 ( and the first one is from August 2013! I have just seen it as I was checking the photo stream again). I am puzzled...


    I am still trying to find a thread to post the question...


    My apologies again for the threadjacking.


    Best regards

    No idea - maybe yoru truned PS off and back on - Maybe you deleted the photos from your phone - I only know what you tell herer - what exactly happened on Jan 28? A system crash? a new iPhone? What changed that day



  • Begoña9 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi LarryLN,

    the only thing that has changed was on 27.01.2014: I installed an update from Adobe Flash Player (Version, Name of this exactly (AdobeFlashPlayerInstaller_12au_ltrosxa_aaa_aih) and it came together with a new programm as option as well named: "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.3 (938183) app" .


    That is all has changed in my MacBookPro.


    No new iPhone, nor deleted any photo.


    Today I can use Spotlight again (?!)... I can not figure out why I could not before during some I have not changed anything because I did not know how to repair it.


    Kind regards

    Have you playing with Lightrom? It is not compltible with the iPhoto library - if yo wnat to play with it or use it you must export photos form iphoto and import into LR - you can not share the iPhoto library with it


    But I doubr that that is your PhotoStream issue - I think that you are seeing the correct photos - the last 30 dsys with a maximum of 1000  --  see

    I do have an external hard drive that I used all of the time up until the last year. It should have that library in it. Thanks for the help Devlin.

    Hi Larry,

    no I have not even open the Lightroom...


    And now the Flash Player seems to be "outdated". I become all the time the message: "Your Flash Player is outdated..."

    How can be that?


    Thank you for the advice about Lightroom, I probably will delete it...



  • LarryHN Level 9 (74,400 points)

    Lightroom is a good program - comnplicated but many capabilities and some people use it instead of iPhoto - my point is only that you can not share the iPhoto library with LightRoom - each must have its own database of photos


    And for support on Flash Player you need to contact Adobe - that has nothing to do with iPhoto
