Retrieve photos from iPhoto

I usually don't want to do anything with cell phone photos but once they're imported to your computer with iPhoto they seem to disappear. Google seems to only have info on older versions of iPhoto/OSX. This applies to Mavericks and iPhoto '11.

Where are my photos?

Photoshop CC paths

In previous versions, you could only drag select points within one path/shape/vector mask at a time. Now, by default, it will select points on every form of vectorness in the entire PSD on any level. 99% of the time I don't want this.

Is there any way to force drag selection of paths to the currently selected path instead?

This refers to the Creative Cloud version only. Thanks in advance.

Time Warner On Demand movies

For my NYC neighbors and fellow sufferers. I assume many of you TWCNY customers got a code for a free movie because of the CBS lockout period.

What are some good On Demand movies to see? I don't recognize many of the ones in there. I might see the Muscle Shoals documentary. The story about Jack Kerouac was pretty good. What else?

After Effects wiggle expression

in a typical expression like this. wiggle(4, 3);

where 4 is frequency and 3 is amplitude, is there a way to make the interpolation of movements be Hold in stead of smooth. I'd like to simulate the type in the Juno opening.

I also tried converting type to shapes and using path wiggling but that didn't work and also affect all letters separately, which I didn't want.

Thanks in advance.

Cinema 4D moving texture

I would like to move a green texture up over about a second. The effect would be similar to temperature raising in a thermometer. It should be possible to go into texture mode and keyframe the position at different y values. I tried animating a black and white alpha as well. Neither of these approaches worked. I could try a second object with the green color and use a boolean but I know that will have distorted effects as booleans are not usually reliable in a situation like this. Any help is appreciated. I'm using R14 on Mac.

Photoshop CS6 right-click

I lost the ability to get a list of layers at the point where I right-click with the move tool. Is there a known fix. I'll do some research while I wait for people to post jokes, sarcasm and an obvious answer I forgot. Thanks.

TV and wireless speakers

I have a new TV that is connected to the internet through my wireless network. I was also hoping I would be able to connect to separate speakers through my wireless network. I have Apple TV working and have the audio from Apple TV coming from my speakers. I'm unsure what to try next. When I navigate on the TV to Settings : Sound : Sound Out, the option for LG Sound Sync (Wireless) is greyed out.

Any help would be appreciated. I tried LG's online chat help but they don't answer.

After Effects Expression help

I'm trying to follow along with this tutorial on time-based expressions.

http://www.motionscript.com/mast…

I'm stuck on the "Follow Null Template" section towards the bottom next to the blue stars. When I put the script on the null I get an error about not finding the effect named offset. I took a wild guess that the null layer ("template") needed a Slider effect. That didn't work So, I tried naming that effect "offset". No luck either. Here's a screen shot.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Photoshop path fail

I know you should be able to turn the mode of any path (in this case a vector mask) and make it subtract or intersect instead of the normal masking mode - if you have the pen tool selected and the path selected. Why are those options greyed out in this case? I restarted Photoshop and invented a few profanities but nothing works.

Anyone know of any good iPhone app/plug-in/utility that will filter emails and set up rules?

I know there are some out there if you jailbreak but I don't want to do that.

Pinterest redesign

Seems to require more clicking to pin and it doesn't work the last two times I tried. I'd hate to give up on this. I have a lot of design reference on there. Anyone having problems?
