Lockdown #6 More Photographs

Walking around in our 5km exercise location centred in Kensington, Melbourne, we have a great number of places to visit. The red circle is the boundary radius of 5 km from our home location. 

Flemington Racecourse, Victoria markets, Maribyrnong River, Melbourne International Gateway, Moonee Ponds Creek, Docklands, and many more locations are the destination of our walks.

In looking at the photographs, I marvel at what we can see and visit within a 5km radius of our little house.

Photo Rescue from old iPad

I have a first-generation iPad with over 3000 photographs stored on it. The iPad which is over 10 years old still works but is limited to iOS 5.5. Using traditional means such as iCloud or connecting via USB cable did not allow me to copy the files to another location.

Dot Point Version

  • Sign into iPad (there is a trick if you haven’t done it in a long time)
  • Download version of Photo Transfer App for that version of iPad
  • Install companion Photo Transfer App on PC or Mac (not on another i-Device)
  • Connect the two computers and apps using Wi-Fi (same network)
  • Start the transfer (I selected folders to keep the photos in groups)

This long post covers the blow by blow detail of my experience which may not be interesting if you are  desperately seeking to save your own photos (as I was).

LogTransport2 Error Adobe

Whenever I shut down my computer, I get an error message popping up warning about a problem with LogTransport2. It has become so common I don’t even register when I see it anymore. It tends to happen at work where there is more blocking of internet chatter between apps.

I stumbled upon an article and more importantly an easy solution to this problem. My diagram below looks like a treasure hunt map but I wanted to share a foolproof way to get to the setting. Basically you need to switch off the sharing of your Adobe activity back to Abobe to help them with making products better. As an Adobe Education Leader, I felt it was the right thing to do in sharing back. However, as it is causing this error, I wanted to share how to stop the error.

You can choose not to make this change and no harm will be done. I guess it is for the slighty obsessive/compulsive amongst us who like things to shut down without error messages, as harmless as they may be.

Click Read More for the diagram if you are not sure where that setting is to turn off.
