Assuming both those Macs have Thunderbolt ports, this cable should suffice. Plug it into each Mac, restart the source computer while holding the T key and it will appear as an external disk drive on your target computer. Just browse it and copy over the photos you need.

Can I use this as a networking cable, like an ethernet cable?
When Wi-Fi is being too slow, I currently use an ethernet cable to connect my MacBook Pro to my mac mini server, running the Minecraft server software. Can I use this Thunderbolt cable instead of the ethernet cable I have been using, for an even faster connection?

How do I transfer data from my iMac without thunderbolt (only firewire) to my new Macbook Air with thunderbolt?
I upgraded from the Macbook Pro 2010 model to the new Macbook Air. I transfered the data from the Pro to my iMac via firewire. Now I need to transfer the same data from iMac to the new MBA with thunderbolt. Is there a cable that connects the firewire port on my iMac to the thunderbolt port on the new MBA?Best Answer:
If you are using transferring all of your data to the other Mac, the easiest and fastest way is to use 'Migration Assistant' with an ethernet cable as it can reach speeds of up to 2gb/s.

Yes. The cabling is exactly the same in both Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2. As long as both devices support it, you'll get the faster 20Gbps speed.
