Choosing Photos To Upload

When you need to upload a photo to a web page, you are first given the option to select a file. But you can use the Media, Photos option to instead select a photo from your Photos Library. This saves you the steps of needing to export the photo and then delete the file later.

    I don’t have a MEDIA section on my sidebar, (using El Capitan 10.11.5.) I don’t see any option for it in the Finder-Preferences. All I have are Favorites, Shared, Devices, Tags. Is there a way to get it to show? thanks.

    Jerry: Are you looking in an file picker dialog like I show in the video? It doesn’t appear in a regular Finder window. And you need to be using either iPhoto or Photos for it to have something to show.

    I am using Photos. I got it now, thanks. I didn’t realize it is the Safari File-Open File command, I was staying in Finder. Thanks.

    The issue I have encountered when accessing my Photos from a site is that when I click on photos, the list of photos do no populate. I get a spinner. Many sites do populate Photos as shown in the video.

    Jean: One example I show in the video. There are others, like the File, Insert command in some apps, or the File, Open command in others.

    A very big THANK YOU. After years as a Mac User I didn’t know this little “trick” What a big time saver. Sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know. Keep teaching us. :)
