Thread: more than 10,000 photos?
06-01-2011, 05:00 PM #1more than 10,000 photos?
I am importing my photos from an external hard drive. Does the All Images folder accept it if it's more than 10,000 images? That's where I should put all my images, correct?
I ended up putting all my photos in the pictures folder. Am I correct in saying the All Images folder is where I can find all the versions of the images and are not meant for me to put my photos in?

All Images is not a real folder, per se. You don't put anything in or taking anything out of it. It's in the sidebar of Finder to give you a shortcut access to (wait for it...) all your images.
You can put your pictures in that picture folder or create a new one somewhere else or divide them up however you want. There's no correct or incorrect way to store your photos. Enjoy!64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

"All Images" isn't a folder at al, despite the look of it. It is a search (a "saved search" actually).
Each time you click on "All Images," the computer tries to show you every image file -- from anywhere on your drive -- that it can find.
If you're putting your photos into iPhoto, remember that iPhoto will automatically store your photos in its own "vault" -- meaning that after you've imported them into iPhoto, you no longer need to keep the ones in the Pictures folder.
