    iPhoto seems to have quit saving the "sharpness" adjustments I make to a photo. All other adjustments (exposure, temperature, etc.) save just fine. This occurs in version 5.0.2. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I have searched OSX and iPhoto help to no avail, so please forgive me if this is an easy fix. Thanks.

    looking through rose-tinted spectacles...
    Common consensus is that your sharpness changes probably are being saved - if you open the image in Photoshop/Elements/Preview, you should see the sharpened image. Apparently, iPhoto uses a fairly soft viewer and they can be tough to see...

    Who knows - things might improve when they fix the colour changing bug that's the most irritating thing in iPhoto 5

    It did not work, but thanks for the suggestion

    Applespider, thanks for your reply. I duplicated an image, increased the sharpness to 100% (for a noticeable change), and copied the original and modified versions to the desktop. Opening the files in both preview and PSE2 did not, unfortunately, reveal any differences between the photos.

    Maybe I should reinstall the software? Your reply and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks again.

    There is a problem when using iPhoto with Tiger, in which iPhoto doesn't save changes to the photos. I don't know if this might be the issue you're having, since you mention that other changes do get saved..

    You can read moe about it in this and this forum posts.
