Removing Duplicate Pictures. Now what to do?
Apple does not provide a way to remove duplicates directly within iPhoto. This process can also take many hours for large libraries. Items which appear are the duplicates found by the search, and can be deleted or consolidated for further review in a new event or album.
Any events or rolls in your library that are labelled as Thumbnails can also be safely deleted. Most of these appear when you import one iPhoto library into another rather than doing a clean merge. Any thumbnails needed by iPhoto for low-res views in grid mode will get recreated by the program if they are missing. The iPhoto Library on the disk is a collection of nested folders and files, containing your original photos, edited versions, thumbnails, etc.
The organization of these files is confusing at best. There are folders named Contents, Data, Modified and Originals, caches, thumbs, data segments, et.

If the Apple ID on your iPhone and Mac are the same, you may not receive an alert, and the import will start automatically. Can we so many on my iPhone. There you have it — every photo that gets sent to the iCloud will download itself onto your Mac as well.
There is a lot of redundant data and copies of things from eons past. Modifying these files outside of iPhoto can cause data loss or library corruption. Over time Apple realized too many people were mucking around, so they came up with a solution to the problem. The iPhoto Library is just a Package file, which is essentially a camouflaged folder.

If you suddenly found out that the iPhoto app no longer works, and you had some really great albums in it, the method above should help you get it working again on your Mac. Once you get the iPhoto working on your Mac, you can delete the new user account as it is of no use now. I tried this method. After I logged on using the new account I went to the app store and it wanted me to log in with an account. I tried my old account and it showed the caption on the iphoto app as update instead of install.
Otherwise it required me to create a whole new account for the app store with payment credentials and everything. Not sure I wanted to go to all that hassle!
Of course tryingt o update it still gave me the same message. If you created a new account, the iPhoto app would not be installed in it. Just have a question.
I have the old iPhoto in my backup disc with all the data and albums and all. I tried to download photos, but that app is not available, it seems. Can you help? The Photos app should be available in your Launchpad, and if it is not, did you check the app store to see if it exists there? I never knew it was outdated until just now when it would not open.
How was I to know this. Thanks Apple. Skip to content. Is this article useful?
