I am using iPhoto '09 version 8.1.1 and was editing a photo in full screen mode. Operating system is 10.6.2 and the machine is a MacBook Pro 15" 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo. Graphics card is ATI Radeon X1600.

I moved to the next photo but then arrowed back and saw a screen similar to the image in the link below. It obviously looks like bad corruption with the video card. The strange thing is it only happens when I adjust shadows in full screen mode. If I alter exposure the photos are fine. Also this only seems to happen in full screen mode. If the photos are in a window then they look fine. If you reset the photo everything is normal.

It looks like a graphics card issue but it is a pain

any ideas would be greatly appreciated

It feels like something for a genius to look at, at an Apple store

all the best
