(The photo for this entry is titled “Why do I have a picture of traffic from 2014 still saved on my phone?”)
iPhoto — now just Photos — slurps in all my pictures but makes it impossible for me to sort and categorize in folders. Because I have not had the time/energy/interest/attention span to find a solution, I have been using my camera as my default storage center to the tune of 24, 187 photos (!!)
Not sure how it has taken me this long to discover Image Capture, a free program in the utilities section of the trusty old macbook pro. Nonetheless, like a ruby red slipper, it was there the whole time. I hooked my phone to my laptop and easily copied over all 24, 187 (!!) photos and now I can organize, folderize and catalog them to my heart’s desire.
Image Capture solved my import problem, but not my categorization situation. If anyone out there in the future when I actually tell people about this here website knows of a good app for categorizing photos on the mac, let me know. Photos won’t allow me to drag and drop into photoshop and for that is dead to me.
Today: Talked to Drew on the phone and as usual we solved all the world’s problems. I’m really into homemade tuna salad sandwiches for every meal right now. The Captain and I walked almost three miles tonight after work!
