    Hi All,

    I've been running into an issue when uploading photos to my Air with iPhoto - It seems that the files are transferred and captured on my SD card just fine, and also preview fine in iPhoto, however, when I upload them they view corrupted and disoriented. Has this ever happened to anyone?

    Please note that I just recently purchased a new SD card the other day in the event that my old one had an issue.

    No ideas from anyone? I am still having the same issue and can't figure out where the root problem may be coming from. :(

    A few thoughts, may help -- or be of no help at all...

    Have you tried opening the photos in an app -other than- iPhoto?
    Something like Picasa, Graphic Converter, Preview, etc.?
    Same results?

    You mentioned "SD card", that is what's in the camera, correct?
    Would you consider spending about $10, and buying a USB card reader?
    Then, take the card out of the camera, insert into card reader, connect to Mac, and copy over pics that way?

    As a last resort, have you considered re-initializing the SD card (in the camera)?

    Thank you for the reply, it is of great help. I actually have not thought of buying a reader, opening them in a separate app OR re-initializing :eek: Looks like I have a list of things to do tonight!
