Question: I can longer transfer photos from my mac to my phone using iTunes. What happened?

I've transferred photos to my phone from my iMac with no problem at all for a long time. With recent updates, it seems the pictures in iTunes are not showing.


I keep my iPhoto library on a connected external drive and have for a long time. I noticed updates to my selected photos were not transferring. Upon investigation, I see that the "pictures" folder in iTunes is now defaulting to my local drive (where no actual photos reside). When I try to change folder to my iPhoto folder, it just stays grayed out, nothing happens, no photos show.


As an experiment I put a few photos on the local drive in the pictures folder and it will let me transfer those photos.


Is this a glitch or am I not setting something up correctly after recent software updates?


I can transfer photos from my phone into iPhoto just fine.


Seems the issue is iTunes related to the network drive. I've checked to see if I'm "sharing" and I am as well. No difference.


Thanks.

Answer:

Not sure what happened but I decided to re-boot and re-launch iPhoto and iTunes. When I did, iTunes appeared to re-connect in some way to iPhoto and all is now fine.
