  1. Can anybody who uses 6.x of iPhoto tell me if iPhoto will import TIFF and RAW files WITHOUT converting them to JPEG? I got bitch-slapped by an otherwise nice person on another MDN post who now hates me because I think iPhoto is slow and proprietary and etc. and etc. But I’m willing to go back and try the latest version if I know it will at least handle more than one file format without converting to JPEG.

    Thanks in advance. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    I just did an import of a TIFF and it kept it a TIFF.

    Cool

  3. Mr. Peabody,

    JPEG, TIFF, RAW, it don’t care!

    Just exported one of my Nikon RAW files (.nef) to be sure.

    The following is from iPhoto 6 help

    Note: If you edit the photo again, the RAW badge won’t appear because the image is now a JPEG file. To re-edit the original, RAW photo, select the photo and choose Photos > Revert to Original. If you want to keep your first edit, choose Photos > Duplicate before Reverting.

    hope that helps

  4. If you have iPhoto 5.x, you cannot update. You have to have iPhoto 6.x to do the update.

    “You cannot install iPhoto Update 6.0.4 [the even earlier patch than the one listed above] on this volume. An eligible iPhoto application was not found in the location/Applications/iPhoto.app.”

    It is not a complaint, it is an observation.

    Apple says the requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and does not mention that it requires that we buy a copy of iLife ’06 to get iPhoto 6.x

    I call that a faux paux.
