    Only way to stop it is to stop using iPhoto for editting.

    I noticed the very same thing, that no matter what edit I did (crop, rotate, etc), the photo would be lightened or reddened.

    The only fix I found is to just export them to edit in other software.

    I only using iPhoto for storing/browsing casual photos now. It's junk as an editor, IMO

    It doesn't do it for me. I use iPhoto version 6.0.3. I checked it using Pixie to sample the color before and after.

    It was a bug in version 6.0 I think. If you update via software update to the latest version, 6.0.3, it will stop.
