Some others have mentioned similar problems: anyone find a good solution?

Running iphoto 08, when uploading photos from iphone 4s about 1 in 4 get corrupted: lines or washed out colors and many videos fail to import.

It seems hit or miss: does not always happen.

 

Is Apple aware of this?

Getting sort of old.

 

What is a better program than iphoto?


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    Have you told Apple?

     

    iPhoto menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback

     

    Image Capture (in your Applications Folder)

    If you have access to another Mac running iPhoto see if you can upload the same photos to its library without the corruption.  This can tell us if it's universal (or phone related) or local and Mac/system/library related.

     

    Does this corruption occur with both orientations - portrait and landscape?

    Just for your information, same problem exists with iphone 3GS, on MacBook Air 2008 (first model) running Lion (the latest available software for this 'abandoned' mac - and iphoto '08). Trying today once again, first import resulted in 4 'unreadable' files (and  the file with filename succeeding the unreadable file had corrupted data). Second attempt of importing (after having deleted the photos from previous imports) resulted in about 100 unreadable files (I didn't check how many of the successfully imported files were corrupted this time). On my PC, files transferred without a problem, and using a flash drive I imported them to iphoto without any problems at all. To me, clearly a problem with data transfer from iPhone to iphoto/MAC.

    As a Test:

     

    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'

     

    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

     

    Post back with the result.
