    iPhoto imports the RAW format from my Rebel XTi very nicely, and I usually just drag it from iPhoto to Photoshop for editing.

    But for photos that I took in "portrait" orientation, where iPhoto has to rotate the image 90 degrees, iPhoto seems to change its proxy to a JPEG image rather than the RAW. So when I drag it in to Photoshop, it opens right away instead of the RAW processing screen. I have to right-click the image in iPhoto and choose "Reprocess RAW," and after that when I drag the image to Photoshop, it opens the RAW like it should.

    Is there a way to just make iPhoto ALWAYS use the RAW, so I don't have to do that right-click thing? It's irritating.

    You can't shoot RAW on Portrait mode. Only on the creative modes, M, Av, Tv and P.

    I think the OP mean the orientation of the image, not one of the scene modes on the camera.

    And no: iPhoto cannot work directly on RAW images. It can only process them as JPEGs.

    Transform iPhoto into Aperture?
