Hi All,

I have been using A3 for a long while now and find it very good. Not only to I load all my SLR shots into it, but also all my iPhone stuff. I have tried to download a number of videos from my iPhone4s, and I think they have been downloaded, BUT I can not find them.
My phone is getting full and I would like to delete a large number of photos and Videos, but obviously would like to ensure that they are somewhere on my laptop first:D.

I have an iPhone 4S using iOs 5.1.1 and Aperture 3.1.2.

If anyone can help me either download the videos to the laptop or 'find' them if they are there, I would be grateful.

Thanks

Chris

    One valuable skill that you need to learn is using "Finder" on your Macintosh computer. Finder is simply software on your computer which is used to help you organize files on your computer, as well as creating folders and even "finding" files on your computer.

    Additionally, when you use Aperture to copy files onto your computer, it allows options on where to store the files. If you create a very short new video on your phone and use Aperture to copy it onto your computer, the process will show you the default path to other video files on your computer (assuming that you have not changed the path from default).

    Hi Ziggy,

    Thanks for the reply. When I attempt to upload a video in A3, it will upload the photos, and then at the end say something like "Aperture 3 does not support some of the files. Would you like to download them?". When I say yeas, it gives the option of where to put them. I selected the Desktop. When I press 'OK', it asks me the original question again, and I repeat the process (it SEEMS to ask the question for each videone_nau.gif).

    However, when I look on my desktop, nothing!

    I might investigate another way of getting them off my phone.

    Thanks again

    Chris

    "Some" folks are claiming success using "iExplorer" to grab large files off the iPhone. It's free and available for both PC and Mac. Probably worth a try, but it does require a very recent version of iTunes on the computer as well.
