    Hello, have a Canon Rebel xsi and for the first time ever, when taking pictures in black and white, they 'import' into iPhoto in color. Not sure whats going on. On the camera they show black and white. When iPhoto first comes up before hitting the import button so you can choose what to import, they show black and white. But after imported and I select 'delete originals'...goes to color. Any ideas why this would be going on? Thanks. :confused:

    It could be that the photo was taken in color, with a B&W filter applied by the camera. When you import it, it imports the original. Is there by chance a duplicate B&W photo anywhere?
