photostream not sync properly on mac

Here's the problem: photos recently taken does not sync on my mac, iPhoto or Photos.

It started there, for no apparent reason about 2 months. Things were fine until here.

Here are some details:

  • OS = 10.11.5
  • iPhoto = 9.6.1
  • Pictures = 1.5
  • I don't use the iCloud photo library and have never
  • in iPhoto-> Preferences-> iCloud, I have controls for my photos, the auto import workflow and photo sharing
  • Sometimes, when I open iPhoto this is mysteriously unchecked. A reverification them does not seem to do anything.
  • in the system preferences-> iCloud, I made the same configuration in the section option from the photo section - iCloud checks, sharing photos and my photo stream
  • I tried to uncheck and recheck all these nothing helps.
  • This problem only started when I started using OS X El Capitan, which was in March this year.
  • Uploaded photos / synchronize normally until June. In iPhoto, they stopped at the end of may (no June or July 2016 album Photo Stream was created. Pictures, sync seems to have stopped in the middle of June)
  • I open the activity monitor and killed officer of Photos, Photos of iCloud, etc as many times.

any ideas or info more who could help solve this problem?


response-to-self: make sure that your phone is connected to wifi when you open iPhoto or Photos.

    Hi guy,

If the computer, try going to System Preferences/iCloud and stop synchronization. Wait a few minutes, then recheck the timing. If the device, go to settings/iCloud and do the foregoing. You can also try connecting to iCloud and then reconnect.

  • My music not syncing properly

    I have an iPhone 4S and try to sync a lot different than the songs on iTunes. So I created a new playlist in iTunes and it's the only one I want to put on my iPhone. After you have connected the phone in iTunes, I have verified that the new playlist that I want, but it maintains synchronization of the songs that I had there before, including the ones I bought.

    Is there something that I am missing? This method has worked for me on an older iPod my does not work properly on the iPhone

    Thank you

    You must untick or unselect songs or playlists that you want to delete from the camera or they will continue to synchronize each time if they are always selected to synchronize.

  • Notes will not sync between my Mac and my iPad

    Hello. I noticed that my Notes are not sync between my iPad and my Mac.

    In my iPad I have iOS 9, in my Mac I have the Mavericks.

    I checked in iCloud dot com, and my notes of the iPad are here,

    but my notes from my Mac are not there.

    I'm not sure but I think that this started happening after I upgraded to iOS 9 on my iPad.

    Any ideas that I can synchronize Notes between my Mac and my iPad?

    Thank you.

    You must upgrade to a later version of Mac OS X, because these Notes are created in the new application 'Notes' that is only supported by iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan.

    I hope that answers your question.

    Best regards


  • Why my notes sync between my Mac and iPhone?

    I have my MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks and my iPhone is running iOS 10.0.1 and used to synchronize my notes! Is it because of the huge gap in operating systems? I SHOULD update my Mac to Mac OS 10.10 + for this problem? Thank you!

    In order to synchronize Notes between your Mac and iPhone, you must configure iCloud >

    But this requires macOS Sierra 10.12, the latest available version and the last iOS available for your iPhone.

  • Facebook contacts will not sync properly

    So I was wondering if someone else sees the same problem with the triumph. I have synced my Facebook contacts to see that I can't call one of them. Three digits are added before the number when you make a call ("001" the international dialing code for the United States) and for this reason, the call does not pass through. A similar problem occurs when trying to text message, these contacts as well. They appear as just the number rather than a name or the picture even if it lets you text the correct contact. It just does not display their right.

    Everyone knows about this problem? And how can we solve this problem? (Motorola, I'm looking at YOU). It's really annoying and I want it fixed.

    I think I found a work around for this problem.

    Settings > call settings > International prefix > remove 011 > arrow to the left (capacitive touch)

    Confirmed to work.

  • iMessage does not sync between iPhone, Mac Mini, MacBook Air

    My main computer is: Mac Mini (mid-2011), El Capitan 10.11.1 (B 15, 42)

    My secondary computer is: MacBook Air (13 inch, mid-2012), El Capitan 10.11.1 (B 15, 42)

    And my iPhone is: iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 9.1 (B 13, 143)

    iMessage used to sync between my iPhone and my computers very well. I was also able to answer incoming calls on my iPhone with computers. It seems that, just at the time I upgraded from Yosemite to El Capitan (or maybe iOS 9.1) synchronization no longer works. I tried pretty much everything I read on the forums, but nothing works. When I go into SETTINGS, MESSAGES and TRANSMISSION of MESSAGE TEXT on my iPhone and select the Mac Mini or MacBook Air, it will activate the program MESSAGES on the computer, but it won't send a code.


    Have you tried with Messages on the relevant Mac already started?

    Have you tried signing of the Apple ID on the iPhone > settings > Messages > Send and Receive and effectively reset all?

  • ICal and address book blackBerry smartphones does not sync properly

    When pocketmac on my iMac running, only a few data my iCal (dates etc.) is displayed on my blackberry curve 8310.  Do some dates, most of them are not.  I'm launching a category 3 and the pocketmac and selected all synchronize them.

    There is a similar problem with my address book.  Not all contacts on the Mac go to the device. I like to store all my contacts on the mac and then write them to the curve.

    When the synchronization with pocketmac, everything seems OK, it runs in the process, but becomes inconsistent, sometimes asking if I want to copy a contact on the device.  I select Yes, but after you synchronize that contact is not on the device.

    This is all pretty confusing and disturbing because it is so inconsistent.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    OK will do, thanks.

  • Contacts on my Droid does not sync properly with my Google contacts

    What should I do if my contacts on my Droid is not correctly synchronize with my Google contacts?  I only sync my contacts on my Droid with Google contacts, (when I synced with my company address book and added a new contact in my Droid I literally hundreds of the same new contacts to one contact added to my Droid).  A few weeks ago, my contacts has stopped adding new contacts from my Google to my Droid.  Updates to old contacts sometimes work and sometimes not.  I turned off and turned on my Google contacts sync on my Droid and rebooted my Droid and he turned his back and I still have the same problem.  I don't want to do a factory reset (throwing the baby out with the bathwater in my opinion).  Deletion of my account Google's Droid and time it would solve the problem?  I currently 217 contacts in Google and 213 on my Droid, but I don't want to have to update each, whenever I get a new contact.  I also find what is updated and what is not would be laborious.  Thanks, Annette

    There is an application named "delete contact" who should do it. Before you delete it please make a backup of your contacts in case something goes wrong. Just precaution. You can export your contacts from your Gmail account. You can do it from the phone also, but I guess that's your Gmail account that you want to save. There must be some contacts which merged. It's the only thing I can think of as to why the number of contacts would be different.  I hope this helps.

  • Typekit do not sync

    I use CC 2015 on a Mac and when I sync fonts on Typekit site, that they will not sync with my Mac. The previous fonts I have synced and since withdrawn remain synchronized. Any thoughts?

    Hi Richard,

    I'm sorry you troubles here. Would try you the following:

    -First of all, would you try to log out of the application creative cloud under: Gear > preferences > General.

    -Then try to quit/restart the creative cloud application and signing then return with your cc Adobe ID.

    -All the fonts you had synchronized previous should now automatically synchronize. If this is not the case, try to synchronize fonts again.

    And if that doesn't work, send us the 3 most recent logs of CoreSync to: [email protected]

    On the Mac, the file can be found here:


    (You will want to open the Finder, click OK, in the menu, hold down the 'option' key and you will see the folder library.)

    On Windows:

    You can find the files: C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CoreSync\coreSync-2013-08-xx.log

    I know it's a lot. Thanks for your help here. Let know us and we will take it from there.

    See you soon,.


  • Adding a lock to a Note iCloud disables its ability to sync with a Mac

    My Mac is upgraded to El Capitan. Synchronization for notes has been works well between my iPhone and my Mac until today when I've upgraded to iOS 9.3. Creating a new note will sync perfectly, however, once the locking function is activated (locked or not), the note refuses to sync with my Mac. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a quick fix or is this a bug with blocking of the Notes application?

    I thought about it. There was a new update that came out for OS X (10.11.4) at the same time that 9.3 is released for iOS (I didn't know this earlier). OS X 10.11.4 is necessary to properly synchronize with the 9.3 lock feature, if not disappears all note active locking.

    I would remove this issue, because it is no longer active, but I have no idea how to do...
