Move Photos To Windows PC?

Post by Richard Serkes » Sun Oct 27, 2019 4:31 pm

I was asked how to move photos stored in MacOS Photos to a Windows 10 PC. I know you can't just drop the Photos Library into a Windows program but is there an easy way to make the migration?

All I can think of is to open Photos then export the individual photos as .JPEG files to an external drive of some sort then copy the photos to a Windows program. I imagine this would be tedious and time consuming especially if you have lots and lots of photos.

Any suggestions will be passed on.

OK, I think I found the answer to my question. It's still not an elegant solution but not as bad as I thought this would be.

An elegant way would be to download iCloud for Windows and have them sync.

Hmmm, I hadn't thought of that. Good idea depending on how many photos are stored in the Cloud. It could take days if the I'Net connection is slow. I'll pass along your suggestion.
