I am changing the titles of my photos from the title my camera gives them like <IMG_1717> to a descriptive name. After going back to look at the pictures they revert back to the camera name. I've tried it 5 times and they keep going back. Anybody have a clue what is happening?

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Where are you changing the titles and where are you checking afterward to see if they took?

    Try deleting the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder, launch iPhoto and try again.

    This delete blah blah blah files reminds me of Windows. Maybe it's time to go back. All this extra money and we end up with the same garbage.

    If you've published something to Facebook iPhoto will not allow you to change the name. You need to delete what you've put on Facebook, change the name, then publish to Facebook again. Deleting your "Preferences" file will not fix this.
