  • Fat Cat Software - PowerPhotos Help - Splitting a library into smaller libraries
    from the big library to clear up the disk space in that library You can repeat this process with small or large batches of albums and any number of libraries to split up your collection into smaller more manageable pieces One common way of splitting up a library is to split things up by date e g so you have one library per year The easiest way to do that is to create a smart album in your Photos library that uses the Date field to show just photos from a certain range of dates For example if you wanted to make a library with just photos from 2013 you d set up a smart album with a date range from Jan 1 2013 to Dec 31 2013 Then in PowerPhotos you can just create a new library then drag that smart album over to the new library to copy all those photos across Then just repeat for each library you want to create with a different date range Duplicate Prune Use the Duplicate Library command in the File menu to make a copy of the library folder that you want to split You can then open one copy of

  • Fat Cat Software - PowerPhotos Help - PowerPhotos not displaying recent changes to a library
    you will not immediately see your recent changes reflecting in the PowerPhotos window The reasons for this are different depending on whether you are dealing with the system photo library or not The system photo library PowerPhotos depends on OS X to provide the latest contents of the system photo library so it can display them in its photo browser This service does not always reliably update with the latest changes in a timely fashion though so it may take a minute or more for new changes to be shown in PowerPhotos You can try forcing a refresh of the library by control clicking on it in the library list and selecting Refresh from the contextual menu that comes up If all else fails try quitting PowerPhotos and relaunching it to see the latest changes Other libraries For other libraries PowerPhotos will be unable to refresh the library contents while that library is still open in Photos itself To make sure you re seeing the latest library contents quit the Photos app PowerPhotos should see that Photos has quit and automatically start reloading the library which will be indicating by a spinning progress indicator at the top of the PowerPhotos

  • Fat Cat Software - PowerPhotos Help - Sharing a library between multiple user accounts on one Mac
    users named A and B that we want to share a library Only one user account can ever have a given library open in Photos at a time Before you can use the shared library as user A you must first make sure to quit Photos as user B None of the user accounts that are accessing the library can designate it as their system library The system library is effectively open at all times by OS X in the background as long as that user is logged in so even quitting Photos will not free up the library so that another user can open it You must either designate a different library as the system library or fully log out user B before trying to access the library as user A Note that this also precludes having this library sync with iCloud The library cannot be stored on your internal drive or any other drive where permissions are respected Fighting against permissions on OS X is a losing battle while you can play whack a mole trying to fix permissions on the library before you open it something will eventually go awry and it s likely you ll be

  • Fat Cat Software - PowerPhotos Help - Reduced library size after merging
    quickly This cache can take up quite a bit of space sometimes hundreds of megabytes and if you haven t synced the merged library with an iPod iPhone this cache folder will not be present there Recently deleted photos When you delete items in your Photos library they do not get immediately removed from the hard drive They instead get sent to the Recently Deleted album in Photos and are only deleted permanently after 30 days giving you a chance to recover them if you want Until they either reach the 30 days or you delete them manually from the Recently Deleted album they will still take up space on the hard drive Those recently deleted photos are not included when merging libraries so this can cause the merged library to take up less space on disk than the original library Duplicate handling If you have the duplicate handling option enabled when you set up the merge this will ensure that only one copy of each photo gets imported into the merged library If there are multiple copies of a photo in the original libraries and the merged library only ends up with one copy that will result in the merged library being smaller than the originals Copying only original or edited version When you edit a photo in Photos it will keep an unedited copy of the original photo and create a separate JPG copy that contains the edits Due to technical limitations with Photos it s only possible for PowerPhotos to copy one of the two versions of the photo to the merged library Since the original library will have two versions of the photo but the merged library has only one this can result in the merged library being smaller than the original Database cache fragmentation Over
