Hey Guys I am new to this forum having a few issues at the moment can any one tell me why my photos that are edited do not stay edited when I place them any where else like desk top or Pages I am very frustrated trying to crop some family shots and they keep reverting to the original photos. On my wifes mac iphoto is taking for ever to load the library some times it wont respond spinning wheel of death and force quit this is the very reason I stopped using microsoft and pc's. Do these problems have anything to do with Leopard its hard to tell both our machines are pretty new I a C2D intel Imac 17 and a C2D intel imac 24
I would appreciate any ones advise and tis is only my first problem I have many more questions.
QUOTE Thanks

Are the images staying cropped in iPhoto? After cropping, are you clicking on "apply" then on "done"? How are you getting the photos to the desktop?

Yes I am pressing apply then Done then I drag and drop the photo from the library or to pages and I see the original image even after replacing the original file getting very annoyed

If you have clicked "Apply" and "Done", then the edited versions of the pictures should be in Pictures->iPhoto Library->Modified folder, just in case you would want to upload the edited versions.

And not wanting to be rude to Hayden 76, but can you please put proper punctuations on what you type? It's just netiquette and it's quite hard to read, not just for me but for the other forum posters. Thank you, and welcome to MF!

Sorry to read about your problems with iPhoto . You didn't say which version, but you said you both use Leopard so, you can try a few things

1. Repair permissions (Application-- utilities--Disk utility select you Hdd from the left pane and click on the repair permissions button and, wait.

2. If that doesn't help try launching iPhoto holding down the +⌥ keys you get a pane like this one




Try the last one (Only available in iPhoto 08 I think)
You don't say much about your wife's problem. One of the above may help. If she has a large collection of shots you can just move her library folder by dragging to an extern HDD. When iPhoto launches it will ask you where you put it . Then just point iPhoto to it with the menu that appears

Another way is to Launch iPhoto holding the ⌥ Key down and choose create another library. This way you can choose between which library you want to work in

Now with Leopard

Have you tried to export to your desktop from iPhoto rather than dragging and dropping?
