    My new iPhoto '09 is quitting after downloading about 5/five/pictures from desktop or folder or other files. The number of photos in the folder is about 80.
    I did try not to use import cmd. and just slide few /8/ from desktop into iPhoto - is not taking - quitting after download of 3.
    Was no problem with download of original software.
    Was no problem with iPhoto '08 ever.
    My next step will be to uninstall whole iPhoto'09 and download again from the disc, but I am hoping for shorter solution.
    Thank you.

    Importing photos problem

    " iPhoto[257] <Error>: CGBitmapContextCreate: unsupported colorspace."
    " Macintosh iPhoto[265] <Error>: profileRef : CMCloneProfileRef: returned -4204 ".
    I have no clue what this, and what to do about it.
    The pictures files I had try to download are from scanner and they are in .tif format , 99% B&W without any manipulation.

    Any help-I will be very grateful.

    The B&W may be the problem. I have read of others having trouble with scanned B&W photos. Do you still have the originals? Can you scan them using "color" settings? I did this and it worked just fine.
