    Finding photos after an android photo transfer
    I have just transferred almost 2000 photos off my sisters Samsung S5 to my iMac running Yosetite. It took a lot of looking as to how to do it and now I've done it I can't find the blasted things!

    Any ideas where they have gone please? It would be greatly appreciated as I don't really want her to loose them and I don't really want them as I have no idea as t what they are

    Opps!! For Yosetite please read Yosemite. It must be the lacque of the French red 'milk of amnesia'

    What or how did you copy the photos? Was there an app you installed on your Mac? Did you use Finder? Did you install an App on the Samsung phone? Doesn't the instructions you followed, tell you where the photos are placed? Are the photos still on the phone?

    Maybe you can get an SD card adapter, remove the card from the phone, and copy them using Finder?

    I'd use Find any File.app and search for a cluster of .jpgs or whatever file format they might be.

    Also the folder or container would be a substantial size with that many photos. FAF could do a search on that also, IE: a folder over a certain size, + created on (add date).

    As Bob asks, a lot of unanswered questions need answers and maybe whatever you used sent them to some &^$%# cloud!!!

    I really can't imaging anything not showing where they were going to be copied or moved to.

    Look in Finder > All My Files; also Photos (or iPhotos whichever you have with Yosemite).

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.

    But make sure View(menu) > Show Path Bar is selected to help locate the source. Assuming they are in some allowed users place otherwise they won't even get listed.
