iPhoto -> Photos Import

As of Yosemite, you might have noticed that iPhotos got a little sibling. Truth is however, this little fledgling has more power under the hood that its predecessor — but there have been a few caveats when users have upgraded. Some users have most, but not all, photos migrated over to a new photo.library; some have a new photos library but also have a migrated.library and then have accidentally opened a new library as some point. In this confusion, their precious memories are read across three, maybe even four libraries. Your Mac computer will use the default one to sync the iCloud library to as well as your Photo Stream, but sometimes that is not where you want the new photo to land.

Is there a solution? You betcha! You are not alone, and over the past few weeks I have been testing, playing and building up my photos knowledge muscles to be able to provide a new service at Outpost2 and Mac Outpost. Let’s call it “Photo Simplifying Service.” Basically, out of the chaos of multiple libraries, you get one, clean, concise library. It is like a hug for your memories, with all the warm fuzzies to boot.

Have you found yourself in a similar situation and do not know how to get the photos grouped together? Fear not, we’ve got you covered. Just visit us at either Outpost2 or Mac Outpost, and we’ll get you all sorted out.

Heck, I would even suggest a system backup prior to any work to just make sure nothing happens to those photos. We provide not only the Photo Simplifying Service and System Backup Service, we also sell great external Hard Drives to keep doing regular backups of your whole user data.

Can this "Photos" update be done while you wait or at least within a hour or 2 ?
