  • PowerPhotos 1.1 is now available, with photo copying and library merging
    to everyone who helped stamp out various bugs during the beta testing period iPhoto Library Manager has long been able to copy photos between iPhoto libraries and merge iPhoto libraries together PowerPhotos 1 0 took a lot of work to get just the basic features up and running with an entirely new Photos app so getting copying and merging working took a little longer but I m glad that it s finally here Photos does impose a few more restrictions than iPhoto in terms of what can be copied between libraries which you can read about in more detail in the PowerPhotos manual Photos on OS X Yosemite had some critical bugs that prevented PowerPhotos from being able to reliably implement its photo copying and library merging features These bugs were fixed by Apple in the next update El Capitan so the current version of PowerPhotos requires that you be running El Capitan or later If you re still running Yosemite you can still download the old version of PowerPhotos but of course that version will not have the new copying merging features One other change with the new version is that there is now a single license that you

  • Don’t store your photo library on Dropbox
    the database file for each individual change Dropbox on the other hand performs all of its syncing on a per file basis So when Photos make a small modification to one of its database files Dropbox will copy the entire data file again Here s an easy way to demonstrate how this can cause data loss in your library using two Macs which we ll call Mac A and Mac B everything here applies to iPhoto and Aperture libraries as well On Mac A create a new Photos library in your Dropbox folder either by holding down the option key while launching Photos or by using PowerPhotos to create the library Import a bunch of photos into the library just to give us a bit of content to work with On Mac B you should see the library appear in its Dropbox folder as Dropbox starts syncing the data across Wait until the checkmark by the library turns green indicating that Dropbox has finished syncing Double click the library on Mac B to open it in Photos which it will do happily even though the library is still open on Mac A You should see the same content you added to the library on Mac A Create a new album in the library on Mac B and name it Album B Add a couple photos to it if you d like Over on Mac A create an album in the library called Album A Add a couple photos to it if you d like Quit Photos on both Macs in any order You should see a flurry of Dropbox syncing activity on both machines which will eventually settle down as Dropbox finishes its syncing Open the library back up on Mac A and open the library back up on Mac B You will most likely see either Album A show up on both machines or Album B show up on both machines but not both This is because while both Macs have modified their own local copy of the library database Dropbox does not have the smarts to merge the bits of those files that have changed together nor should it One of the databases will overwrite the other one blowing away whatever changes were made there Which one survives and which one doesn t will depend entirely on the timing of Dropbox s syncing If you re less lucky one or both of the libraries won t be openable in Photos at all which will display a message saying that it needs to repair the library database Even if it successfully completes the repair you will either only see one of your new albums in the resulting library or perhaps neither of them Now it is theoretically possible to make a setup like this work if you make sure not to open both libraries at once and always remember to close Photos on one machine before using it on the other and always remember to wait for Dropbox to
