Cassandra: The Illogical File Transfer Process in Photos and iCloud Library
By Graham K. Rogers
On my way out this morning, I tried some Slo-Mo video. I want to write something about this to go with the other comments I have produced on the attributes of the cameras on iOS devices these days.
Back at home, I edited the images and then took another set of the MacBook I am running currently and the USB-C adapters for it. I used a black background sheet for these and some of the exposure, contrast and other attributes needed adjusting. The images all needed to be cropped.
It is now 17:30. The images I took in Siam Paragon at around 11:30 am are on the Mac in Photos, but the edits have not been updated. Some of the images I took at around 16:30 and edited are available. Others taken at the same time (and edited) are not available at all. The unedited images from the iPhone 6 Plus are beginning to appear on the iPhone 6 as well as some of the later edited images.
In that way, the photographs would be available for inclusion in other work (in my case web uploads) today instead of later, or perhaps even tomorrow.
