I’ve received a handful of emails wanting to know how to export images from Ember. We have no automated way of doing this and it’s a bit tedious - however, I got an idea and acted upon it. And it worked.
So, here’s the best way to export your photos and files from Ember.
Go to your hard drive > users > username (mine is Aaron). Press Command + J and select “Show Library Folder”:
The files are in .embersnap files so you’d have to extract your data one by one. Fortunately, I did some testing and figured out a way to do this easier. Download an app called Find Any File (trial version works fine).
Once downloaded, open it up and set your settings as follows:
Find Any File App:
Under Find Items - Select “Inside Folder…”
Go to Users > User folder > Library > Group Containers > (search for Ember), select that folder > Ember Library > Snaps - now select “Open"
Start searching for different file extensions. Search for “.psd”, “.jpg”, “.png” and so on.
Enter the file extension and select “find” - if anything is found, a window will appear (see results.jpg) - from here, you can drag all files into your desired folder on your Mac/hard drive.
Let me know if that helps, or if you need any assistance.
