I have ran into a problem today, I found a photo which was meant for deletion anyway, but what happened to it might indicate the problems which might affect future photos.


Check this photo:

You can see the black bar on the top. That is the missing part of the photo.


Now same photo on iPhone, downloaded straight from iCloud. No corruption:

I do not know if there is problem with Photos app on Mac. How else to explain this?

I use iPhoto 9.6.1 in Mojave 10.14.6 ( build 18G103). Works perfectly.

I never use iCloud, never have & never will.

Well, then, Mojave will be the last OS you’ll get to use unless you abandon the iPhoto.

iPhoto 9.6.1 is 64 bit.

It should at least start up in Catalina even if not 100% functional.

I'm almost 70 and quite like the few 32 bit apps I have installed, they all run at a speed adequate to my daily needs on my decently hotted up 4,1>5,1 cMP.

I have never subscribed to the 'must update at all costs' maxim and so far, judging from the adverse postings in the Catalina forum why give myself the extra stress when I have Mojave 10.14.6 ( clean install - no supplemental - Build 18G103 ) running perfectly, stress-lessly for me.
