    try dragging the files to the desktop. delete them when you're done uploading.

    one solution i found was to right click the library and go to "show package contents" and then drag to desktop, gunan eb a pain for people who need to update many photos tho, geez i hope :apple: comes up with a solution.

    in iphoto, either drag the picture to the desktop, or if you want it resized...
    in iphoto, select image, go to file>export.

    there's a cool facebook iPhoto plugin you can download. It adds a facebook tab to the Export section of iPhoto, and you can tag people in it and everything. Makes uploading to facebook really easy.

    If you dragged from the Finder, i.e. the iPhoto library, to the desktop and deleted, then that was a very bad move. If you dragged from within iPhoto, then that's different.

    I know that from within file choosing dialogues you can drag & drop a file from any location to the dialog (?) and it will change path and file to that one.

    So can't you just drag the image directly from iPhoto to the file choosing dialog (how is it spelled?)
