    Import of JPG photos
    I have a stick full of images I'd like to add into my iPhoto library.

    Yet, I get the following message: "The file could not be imported. The file is in a unrecognized format."

    They all are in the .jpg format which, I thought, was rather common...

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Try copying them to a folder you've created on your desktop. Do you get the same error message?

    If so, it's not iPhoto that's the problem. Try copying over one at a time, or random selections. See if you continue to get the message on just one, some or all of the pictures.
