Missing Events and Photos in iPhoto?

让我猜猜,,en,您有新的iMac,,en,您最近在Time Capsule上备份了Time Machine,,en,设置新的iMac非常简单,,en,只是指向备份,,en,几个小时之后,,en,您的新iMac就像您的旧Mac,,en,一直到墙纸和浏览器历史记录,,en,你难以置信地摇了摇头,对自己说,,en,男子,,en,这东西才行,,en,这就是应该的样子,,en,几天后,,en,您启动iPhoto,,en,它说它需要更新数据库或其他,,en,不出汗,,en,只需几分钟,,en,新的iMac快得不可思议,,en,胡洛,,en,最近四个事件出了什么问题,,en,他们怎么没有照片,,en,好,,en,其实,,en,他们有东西,,en,你可以看到缩略图一秒钟,,en,然后他们消失了,,en,活动似乎有正确数量的照片,,en – you got your new iMac. You had a recent Time Machine backup on your Time Capsule. Setting up the new iMac was ridiculously easy — just point to the backup. A few hours later, your new iMac is just like your old Mac, right down to the wall paper and browser history. You shake your head in disbelief and say to yourself, “Man, this thing just works! This is the way it is supposed to be!”

A couple of days later, you fire up your iPhoto. It says it needs to update the database or whatever. No sweat. Just a couple of minutes — the new iMac is ridiculously fast. Hullo — what is wrong with the last four events? How come they have no photos in them? Well, actually, they do have something, you can see the thumbnails for a second, and then they disappear. The events seem to have the right number of photos. 他们甚至列出了相机型号和曝光数据,,en,你挠头对自己说,,en,可能是Time Machine备份未正确解包或其他原因,,en,可能是版本升级弄乱了一些数据,,en,我可以使用Time Machine并找到合适的iPhoto图库。,,en,你启动时间机器,,en,可能是第一次真正,,en,您将iPhoto库的最后一个良好备份还原到桌面上,,en,然后再次启动iPhoto,,en,再次更新数据库,,en,急等,,en,嘿,,en,该死的事件仍然不见了,,en,恐慌开始,,en,疯狂的谷歌的答案,,en,好,,en,按住Option和Command键,,en,并启动iPhoto,,en,重新产生缩图,,en,修理图书馆,,en,重建数据库,,en,仍然,,en,的,,en,事件拒绝回来,,en,我怎么知道这一切,,en,因为这正是我所做的,,en,我很幸运,,en.

You scratch your head and say to yourself, “Well, may be the Time Machine backup didn’t unpack properly or whatever. May be the version upgrade messed up some data. No sweat. I can use the Time Machine and find the right iPhoto Library.” You fire up the Time Machine — probably for the first time for real. You restore the last good backup of the iPhoto Library to your desktop, and launch iPhoto again. Database update again. Anxious wait. Hey, the damned events are still missing.

Panic begins to set in. Mad Google for answers. Ok, hold down the Option and Command keys, and launch iPhoto. Regenerate thumbnails. Repair the library. Rebuild the Database. Still, the ****** events refuse to come back.

How do I know all this? Because this is exactly what I did. I was lucky though. 我设法恢复了事件,,en,我突然意识到问题不在于还原过程,,en,或iPhoto的版本更新,,en,这是Time Machine备份过程,,en,备份不完整,,en,我保留了旧的Mac和旧的iPhoto库,,en,所以我将旧库复制到新的iMac,,en,直,,en,通过网络,,en,不是来自Time Machine备份,,en,然后,我在新机器上启动了iPhoto,,en,必要的数据库更新后,,en,所有的事件和照片都出现了,,en,ew,,en,那么到底出了什么问题,,en,如果打开iPhoto,Time Machine似乎无法正确备份iPhoto库,,en,根据苹果,,en,更确切地说,,en,最近导入的照片和事件可能无法备份,,en,这个错误,,en,要么,,en,特征,,en,原为,,en,已报告,,en,从苹果论坛,,en,更早和,,en,详细讨论,,en,关于该主题的博客文章,,en. It dawned on me that the problem was not with the restore process, nor the version update of iPhoto. It was the Time Machine backup process — the backup was incomplete. I had the old Mac and the old iPhoto library intact. So I copied the old library over to the new iMac (directly, over the network; not from the Time Machine backup). I then started iPhoto on the new machine. After the necessary database update, all the events and photos showed up. Phew!

So what exactly went wrong? It appears that Time Machine doesn’t backup the iPhoto Library properly if iPhoto is open (according to Apple). More precisely, the recently imported photos and events may not get backed up. This bug (or “feature”) was reported earlier and discussed in detail.

我想在这里分享我的经验,因为这是重要的信息,可能会节省一些时间,,en,可能还有一些有价值的照片,,en,我觉得苹果公司不愿意将Time Machine推崇为所有备份解决方案之母,并带有这个明显的错误,,en,毕竟,,en,您的照片是您最宝贵的数据之一,,en,如果没有备份和正确迁移它们,,en,为什么还要打扰Time Machine,,en,回顾,,en,如果在迁移到闪亮的新iMac后发现照片集不完整,,en,使用Time Machine备份,,en,如果您仍然有旧Mac,请不要惊慌,,en,从两台机器上的iPhoto正常退出,,en,将旧的iPhoto图库从旧的Mac复制到新的,,en,在两台机器上从iPhoto正确退出后,,en, and possibly some valuable photos. And I feel it is disingenuous of Apple to tout the Time Machine as the mother of all backup solutions with this glaring bug. After all, your photos are among the most precious of your data. If they are not backed up and migrated properly, why bother with Time Machine at all?

To recap:

  1. If you find your photo collection incomplete after migrating to your shiny new iMac (using a Time Machine backup), don’t panic if you still have your old Mac.
  2. Exit gracefully from iPhoto on both the machines.
  3. Copy your old iPhoto Library from the old Mac over to the new one, after properly exiting from iPhoto on both machines.

How to prevent this from happening

Before the final Time Machine backup from your old Mac, ensure that iPhoto is not running. In fact, it may be worth exiting from all applications before taking the final snapshot.

If you want to be doubly sure, consider another automated backup solution just for your iPhoto Library. I use Carbon Copy Cloner.

How to Avoid Duplicate Imports in iPhoto

For the budding photographer in you, iPhoto is a godsend. It is the iLife photo organization program that comes pre-installed on your swanky new iMac or Mac Book Air. In fact, I would go as far as to say that iPhoto is one of the main reasons to switch to a Mac. I know, there are alternatives, but for seamless integration and smooth-as-silk workflow, iPhoto reigns supreme.

iPhotoTaggerBut (ah, there is always a “but”), the workflow in iPhoto can create a problem for some. It expects you to shoot pictures, connect your camera to your Mac, 将照片从相机移到Mac,,en,增强/编辑和分享,,en,脸书,,en,轻弹,,en,或打印或制作相册,,en,这个流程,,en,有一些人脸识别,,en,消除红眼,,en,活动/专辑制作等,,en,奇迹般有效,,en,如果您刚开始使用新的数码相机,,en,如果您已经有该怎么办,,en,旧照片和旧计算机上的扫描,,en,在,,en,我的照片,,en,这是我开始使用iPhoto时遇到的问题,,en,我为能预见到此类问题而感到自豪,,en,所以,,en,我决定非常仔细地导入我的旧图书馆,,en,汇入时,,en,从一开始就相当有条理,,en,我逐个文件夹浏览了它,,en,将它们拖放到iPhoto和,,en,与此同时,,en,贴上标签,,en,和其中的照片,,en,我认为合适的颜色,,en,我用了,,en,获取信息,,en,Finder中用于颜色标签的功能。,,en, enhance/edit and share (Facebook, flickr) or print or make photo books. This flow (with some face recognition, red-eye removal, event/album creation etc.) works like a charm — if you are just starting out with your new digital camera. What if you already have 20,000 old photos and scans on your old computer (in “My Pictures”)?

This is the problem I was faced with when I started playing with iPhoto. I pride myself in anticipating such problems. So, I decided to import my old library very carefully. While importing “My Pictures” (which was fairly organized to begin with), I went through it folder by folder, dragging-and-dropping them on iPhoto and, at the same time, labeling them (and the photos therein) with what I thought were appropriate colors. (I used the “Get Info” function in Finder for color labels.) 我以为我很聪明,,en,但我最终罚款,,en,但丰富多彩,,en,烂摊子,,en,我的文件夹和照片带有随机颜色,,en,似乎无法比较和找出,,en,照片导入到iPhoto中,,en,所以我决定写我的第一个Mac App,,en,我花了大约一个星期的时间来写,,en,但它解决了我的照片担忧,,en,现在我想卖掉赚钱,,en,这是它的作用,,en,它首先浏览您的iPhoto库,并对您所拥有的内容进行分类,,en,然后,它将扫描您指定的文件夹,并将其中的照片与图库中的照片进行比较,,en,如果发现一张照片恰好一次,,en,它将获得绿色标签,,en,这样,当您在Finder中浏览到它时,它就会脱颖而出,,en,这是Windows资源管理器的Mac-talk,,en,相似地,,en, but I ended up with a fine (but colorful) mess, with my folders and photos sporting random colors. It looked impossible to compare and figure out and where my 20,000 photos got imported to in iPhoto; so I decided to write my very first Mac App — iPhotoTagger. It took me about a week to write it, but it sorted out my photo worries. Now I want to sell it and make some money.

Here is what it does. It first goes through your iPhoto library and catalogs what you have there. It then scans the folder you specify and compares the photos in there with those in your library. If a photo is found exactly once, it will get a Green label, so that it stands out when you browse to it in your Finder (which is Mac-talk for Windows Explorer). Similarly, 如果照片在iPhoto图库中出现多次,,en,它将以黄色标记,,en,和,,en,加倍努力,,en,如果其中的所有照片都已导入到iPhoto库中,则iPhotoTagger将使文件夹变为绿色,,en,那些已部分导入的文件夹将被标记为黄色,,en,使用Exif数据进行照片比较,,en,并且相当准确,,en,请注意,iPhotoTagger不会修改iPhoto图库中的任何内容,,en,这样做是不明智的,,en,它只是读取图书馆以收集信息,,en,第一个版本,,en,V1.0,,en,被释放以测试水域,,en,照原样,,en,并定价为,,en,如果有足够的兴趣,,en,我将在V2.0上以更高的性能工作,,en,使用Perl和SQLite,,en,如果你必须知道,,en,我会定价,,en,如果兴趣没有减弱,,en,V3.0,,ml,对于,,en, it will be tagged in Yellow. And, going the extra-mile, iPhotoTagger will color your folder Green if all the photos within have been imported into your iPhoto library. Those folders that have been partially imported will be tagged Yellow.

The photo comparison is done using Exif data, and is fairly accurate. Note that iPhotoTagger doesn’t modify anything within your iPhoto library. Doing so would be unwise. It merely reads the library to gather information.

This first version (V1.0) is released to test the waters, as it were, and is priced at $1.99. If there is enough interest, I will work on V2.0 with improved performance (using Perl and SQLite, if you must know). I will price it at $2.99. And, if the interest doesn’t wane, a V3.0 (for $3.99) 将会显示正确的帮助文件,,en,性能面板,,en,选择自己的配色方案的选项,,en,SpotLight评论,,en,和,,en,可能是用Objective-C重写的,,en,在你急着给我钱之前,,en,请知道iPhotoTagger需要Snow Leopard和Lion,,en,OS-X,,pt,如果有疑问,,en,您可以,,en,下载精简版,,en,玩,,en,功能齐全,,en,并将创建要以绿色和黄色标记的照片/文件夹列表,,en,但实际上不会标记它们,,en,分享这个,,en,点击分享在Reddit上,,en,在新视窗开启,,en,点击分享在Voat,,en,点击分享到Facebook,,en,点击分享到Twitter,,en,点击分享到LinkedIn,,en,点击分享到Google ,,en,点击分享在Tumblr,,en,点击分享Pinterest,,en,点击打印,,en,有关,,en,注释,,en,应用程式,,en,照相,,en,狮子,,en,苹果系统,,pt,帖子导航,,en,以前的帖子,,en,偶然作家,,en,下一篇文章,,en,比光速快,,en,广告,,en, performance pane, options to choose your own color scheme, SpotLight comments (and, if you must know, probably rewritten in Objective-C). Before you rush to send me money, please know that iPhotoTagger requires Snow Leopard and Lion (OS-X 10.6 and 10.7). If in doubt, you can download the lite version and play with it. It is fully functional, and will create lists of photos/folders to be tagged in Green and Yellow, but won’t actually tag them.
