MacOS: iCloud folder not visible

Postby Inscapes » Mon Apr 24, 2017 11:53 pm

Hi People,

I recently migrated a bunch of image files from dropbox to iCloud (on my Mac).
In XnView's "explorer" (folder) view, there is no way I can find the iCloud folder.

it seems that the folder pathway, according to an internet post, is here:

~/Library/Mobile Documents/

if it's in the "user" library, it's normally an invisible 'system' file, which may explain its absence from XnView's folder view.

Does anyone have a solution to how I could browse my iCloud photos with XnView? (I've tried setting up an "alias" to the folder on my desktop, but attempting to open it in XnView simply transfers me over to a finder (mac explorer) window. No luck.

Thanks for any suggestions!
