    Are they? When I import my pictures to iPhoto they're the correct size (2560x1920). Are you sure you're not looking at the thumbnail? Select a photo and click on the information button in the bottom left corner.

    Have you got your camera set incorrectly (0.3MP or whatever the setting is for that small size), it sounds like there's a preference gone awry somewhere because iPhoto works fine for me.

    To browse your pictures in the finder (which I don't recommend, btw, because you can mess up iPhoto's file structure), you'll need to find a folder called 'originals' to see your images at full res.

    Basically, stick to navigating your pictures in iPhoto, and you'll be fine.

    Keep your nose out of iPhoto's Library folder! Do everything within iPhoto, including exporting full-res pics (just drag the thumbnail out to export or it's in the menu).
