    It is maddening how Apple continues "upgrading" their offerings and creating total confusion
    … … …
    I am running El Capitan 10.11.6. For years I was on Snow Leopard 10.6. I have had a myriad of problems since that upgrade

    poppi


    To save you all your recent problems and aggravations, do you have a clone or backup of your older SL OS X 10.6.8 where everything seems to have worked well for you, that you could use.

    Not much seems to be going well or working properly for you at this point so it's almost like flogging a dead horse to get it to work properly again.

    As I recall, apple says and provides a warning to make a backup before installing any major OS X upgrade as far as I can recall.

    But yeah, who reads or heeds those messages or warnings eh???


    PS: It's sounding like you might need some help at an Apple store or at least a call to their Customer Support Dep't. to get things sorted out.

    We're already at post #16 and the problems seem to be getting worse.

    Just saying…

    @Patrick:

    It's commendable that you're trying to help member "poppi" but he has long ago been told that because he was so far behind in updating his system that he would run into problems in the future.

    Lots of luck with that. He's running vintage equipment and I suspect Apple will not offer any help. He might be better off looking for a Mac user group near his home and get some help from them. Either that, or as you seem to suggest above, go back to Snow Leopard and stick with that.

    Remember when Photos was first released, there was an iPhoto update, that needed to be installed, prior to upgrading the Mac OS X version.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    As I recall, Photos.app was a complete disaster for many when it was first released and all kinds of various updates etc. seemed to be needed, at least for some that ventured into the upgrade path.

    At least apple finally seems to have a support article now, but not fully detailed it seems:
    Updating from iPhoto to Photos for macOS
    https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT204655

    At least thy mention some details in their stupid small, light grey text:
    to migrate a library from iPhoto 7 or earlier, use Apple’s free iPhoto Library Upgrader tool(linked) to prepare your library first.
    I think the iPhoto Library Upgrader tool was a critical part that Bob mentioned.

    .


    I guess that's one of the reasons I always suggest to upgraders to make sure one has or keeps a working clone of the older OS.
    Just like apple's upgrade warning read me says!!!
