    Sorry for a dumb question. I downloaded airnef successfully and used it to transfer about 100 photos from my Nikon camera to my Mac laptop. For this “test” run, I did not change the default output directory (I did for my subsequent one) so they were transferred to “/Applications/airnef.app/Contents/Resources”. However I cannot find this file (even doing a search on my hard drive). Any suggestions on how to find it?
    thanks

    Hi Ricardo,

    Not a dumb question at all. All OSX applications are actually a ‘bundle’, which in terms of the filesystem are actually folders. The fact that Application bundles are folders is hidden from the user by default (but not developers, since we’re aware of how bundles are structured). To gain access to the bundle, ctrl-click the Airnef app in your Applications folder and select ‘Show Package Contents’. That will show you the first ‘Contents’ directory of the bundle, from which you can navigate to the Resources directory to gain access to your first 100 downloaded images.

    Btw the next version of Airnef will avoid this by selecting a different default download folder the first time the application is run, probably the OSX ‘Pictures’ folder. The fact that I allowed the default directory to be the Airnef application bundle was an oversight on my part (and the same is true for the Windows version as well, which has different side effects).
