Apple Photos App not accessible when using Garage Sale 7

I upgraded to Garage Sale 7 in February 2018 and now am not able to load or drag and drop any of my photos that reside within Apple Photos. I am using Mac OS 10.13.6 on an iMac 27 inch designated late 2009.
I would be very grateful to know how to use photos in the Photos Directory. Garage Sale simply cannot see the Photos Directory structure where the photos are.
I could export to my desktop then delete. However, I would like to believe that Garage Sale would be more sophisticated and user friendly than that.

Thank you in advance

That is an APPLE problem. Apple won’t allow you to drag and drop pictures from Photos into garage sale. I use an old copy of iPhoto 9.6.1 that still allows drag and drop. It was still on my computer after Apple did away with it iPhoto and made the change to Photos.

Hi qndvthank you for your reply.

That is a shame. I upgraded to resolve a similar issue from version 6.

It seems that iwascoding and Apple share the problem.

This makes even less sense. If you create a folder on you desktop, drag from Photos to it and then drag to Garage sale… wait for it… it will work.

Hi Richard

Yes, that is what I have done and will continue to do. No idea why Apple will not make the Photos directory available to non Apple Apps. It does seem like a backwards step.

Thank you again for your reply.

Sorry, I don’t think I fully understand your post. Are you talking about:

a) not being able to drag images from the Photos window into the GarageSale window


b) the contents of your Photos library not showing up in the Media window inside GarageSale

Drag and Drop should stil work to GarageSale’s Editor mode though.
Another way is to use the GarageSale photo library.

If your photos are missing in GarageSale’s photo library, maybe this helps:

Hi Kristian

I have tried drag and drop in edit mode and it works fine.

Thank you for your help.
