    When I open Photos, all of my images are there.

    But, if I'm inside of a program (say Twitter or Facebook) and try to insert an image, I get the "Open" dialogue box, select Photos (under media) and go to my images and the last one I can see is from about a week ago.

    Any thoughts on the disparity?

    See below for a screenshot of the dialogue box, where the last available choice is a cat pic, and a screenshot from photos that shows there are other images after that one.

    Thanks, Bruno. They aren't there whether I go through moments, years, places, etc.

    Just to clarify, since this post started out in OS and was moved to apps, I don't think this is a problem with Photos (the app). Everything is fine there.

    I think it is a problem with how the OS is finding/reading photos (not the app, the files) to make them available for selection within other programs.

    I know in iOS, the photo needs to be completely downloaded before I can see it in other apps. If I'm just looking at the optimized version, it won't find it. I typically Edit the photo which downloads the complete thing, then it shows up.

    But that's iOS. Not sure if it's the same problem for you.
