    Guys, I've "updated" to Photos and have seen no end of problems!

    I want to import photos from my Android (which I have previously done without too much trouble).

    The first problem is that only a few photos show as thumbnails.

    The second problem is that even photos that I have previously imported show as being new. So if I import all I'll have duplicates.

    When I select the photos I want to import (I count how many new ones I have on my phone and then count up on the Photos app) and the click Import nothing happens. It says its importing, but several hours later the 5 photos I need importing are still in the import process.

    I decide to stop importing. This doesn't work. Photos app just hangs.

    I choose to Quit Photos. It won't allow me to do so. It tells me that it's Closing Library. Force Quit is not available!

    I choose to Shut Down my Mac. No can do as Photos is still running - and can't be force quit either!

    I have to hold the power button down to shut down.

    Happens every single time!

    Oh Apple, what have you been doing these last few years!

    Guys, another quick question please - is there any way of deleting duplicate photo's from the Photos app?
