    Hello everyone,

    For some reason, when uploading a photo online, I cannot directly access my iphoto library. Instead, I need to drag the picture from iphoto, to desktop, and from there upload it...

    Any ideas?

    Thats' how it's supposed to work. The "iPhoto Library" is a collection of folders that helps iPhoto keep everything organized. While you can right-click on iPhoto Library and select "Show package contents" to get into that folder, don't move anything inside or it may cause iPhoto to act all screwy.

    Or use the export function and you can choose what size you want.

    Or use a photo editor to open it from iPhoto.

    You can drag it to the desktop like you do but it's best to use the "export" feature inside iPhoto to export to the desktop. that way you get to choose the size and jpg quality you need. Simply dragging does not allow you to specify any options.
