    Can someone help out with a Photos question? Trying to merge current Photos and upgraded iPhoto.

    I've got an old iPhoto library that I thought I'd merged successfully with my iCloud Photos/Photos on Catalina, but I was mistaken. The iPhoto library is larger than the iCloud Photos, so I've got a thought, and I need to be talked into it or out of it. If I take my current Photos library on...

    The "To:" field clears itself of a particular address, refuses to be populated, composing a msg in iPhoto

    Hi, I faced a weird situation when the address in question being typed into the "To:" field, composing the message within iPhoto app, does not populate it when selected from the dropdown menu, although it auto-completes as soon as I start typing it. At first, I thought this can be a formatting...

    iTunes Doesn't See Photos

    I know, I'm old school. I still sync photos to my iPhone XS from my Photos library, via iTunes. How else would I get DSLR photos from my Mac to phone? In their proper album? There's no way that I know of. So in iTunes, I go to the iPhone screen, then the photos tab on the left, and check...
