If you’re experiencing a crashing app at launch, failed imports, or thumbnails or photos missing, then you may want to try repairing your Photos library to recover from these errors. Before continuing, you should ensure that you have a backup of your library via Time Machine or manual copying to another location.</p><p>�</p><p>Follow these steps to recover your Photos library:</p><p>1. If opened, close the Photos app</p><p>2. Relaunch the Photos app while holding the Command + Option keys</p><p>3. The “Repair Library” dialog will appear asking if you’d like to repair the library</p><p>4. Select “Repair”</p><p>After doing these steps, the Photos window will change to a “Repairing Library” view with a progress bar indicating the current state of repair. Depending on how much content you have in your library, this process can take quite a while as it rebuilds and repairs the library on your Mac.</p><p>This process will only repair the default Photos library on your Mac. If you have multiple libraries, you will need to switch to the one needing repair before performing these steps.</p> http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/easy-mac-hacks-how-repair-mac-os-x-photos-library#comments Easy Mac Hacks iPhoto OS X photo library Photos Mac How-Tos Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:28:32 +0000 Cory Bohon 21763 at http://www.maclife.com Ask: How to Erase All Email on an iPhone or iPad http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/ask-how-erase-all-email-iphone-or-ipad <!--paging_filter--> http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/ask-how-erase-all-email-iphone-or-ipad#comments Ask Email iOS iOS 8 Mail Tips tricks iPad iPhone How-Tos Mon, 22 Jun 2015 21:25:41 +0000 Chris Hoffman 21762 at http://www.maclife.com Easy Mac Hacks: How to Send Any File with Mail Drop in OS X http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/easy-mac-hacks-how-send-any-file-mail-drop-os-x <!--paging_filter--> http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/easy-mac-hacks-how-send-any-file-mail-drop-os-x#comments Easy Mac Hacks Mail Drop Terminal Tips tricks Mac How-Tos Tue, 16 Jun 2015 00:03:02 +0000 Cory Bohon 21741 at http://www.maclife.com iPad Music Production: 18 Best Apps and Gear http://www.maclife.com/article/ipad/ipad-music-production-18-best-apps-and-gear <!--paging_filter--><p>While Apple has traditionally positioned the iPad as a media-consumption device, the tablet has gained a reputation as a very capable and powerful music-creation tool. GarageBand is a great place to start, but taking the next step can be difficult when faced with an overwhelming number of creative options. Don't worry: we'll point you toward the very best block-rockin' apps and accessories.</p><p>Before we get started, be aware that the processors in older iPads simply don't pack enough punch to take on many of the top audio apps. You'll want nothing less than an original iPad mini, and the closer you can get to a current iPad Air 2, the better. Also, look for applications that support Inter-App Audio (IAA), Apple's protocol for inter-application operability.</p><p>Now, let's rock!</p> http://www.maclife.com/article/ipad/ipad-music-production-18-best-apps-and-gear#comments Gallery App Audio and Music Garageband iPad mic Music production synth iPad How-Tos Fri, 12 Jun 2015 22:19:15 +0000 David Biedny 21733 at http://www.maclife.com Ask: How to Move the Location of Your iTunes Library http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/ask-how-move-location-your-itunes-library <!--paging_filter--> http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/ask-how-move-location-your-itunes-library#comments Ask iTunes Tips tricks Mac How-Tos Fri, 12 Jun 2015 18:06:24 +0000 Cory Bohon 21730 at http://www.maclife.com How to Use Screen Sharing in Mac OS X http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/how-use-screen-sharing-mac-os-x <!--paging_filter--> http://www.maclife.com/article/howtos/how-use-screen-sharing-mac-os-x#comments Mavericks OS X Screen sharing yosemite Features Mac How-Tos Wed, 10 Jun 2015 00:05:50 +0000 Lucy Hattersley 21721 at http://www.maclife.com
