Cassandra: Information in Photos on a Mac about Image Downloads for Editing or Export
By Graham K. Rogers
What we usually see, however, is an optimised image: the full image may take some time to arrive. This can be frustrating if we want to edit and use these images right away. This delay is also apparent when images are exported. Several minutes (or more) may pass before users can edit or export the specific image (or images).
There is a guide to such delays on the Mac. On the top of the Photos panel, to the right of the image size slider bar, a circular progress icon appears when downloading is taking place. Clicking on this, reveals a small panel with a little more information about the images being downloaded and a clearer progress bar.
