To convert videos, users can export them from their iPhoto library and import them into a video editor. The Apple website recommends that users purchase the latest version of QuickTime Pro to convert videos and other media for optimized viewing on a variety of devices.
To export videos, users can use the Export option under the File menu or drag clips out of the iPhoto window onto a Mac desktop. To view and copy the source file, users can go to the File menu and select Reveal in Finder, then Original File. They may then import the video into an editing program using the File menu in their chosen application. Many video-editing programs are available online and in the Mac App Store, including Adobe Premiere Elements and iMovie.
QuickTime Pro converts media into different formats optimized for Apple TV, iPhone, iPod, iPad and a variety of other devices. It is available for purchase on the Apple website.
iPhoto was a digital photograph software application developed by Apple. It was replaced with Apple's Photos application, which was released in April 2015. Photos is included with all updated iOS and OS X operating systems. Media uploaded to Photos can also be exported and imported into QuickTime, iMovie and Adobe Premiere Elements.
