After I edit a photo in iPhoto (e.g., by cropping it), it appears as a thumbnail in the correct format.  But when I highlight the thumbnail to e-mail it, it comes up as the original, unedited photo.  Is there a fix for this?  Or am I missing a step when I edit my photos?  Thank you.

iPhoto '11, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    How are you editing? Using iPhoto or another editor?


    How are you emailing?

    I am using iPhoto as the editor.  I have been using iPhoto to send the e-mails, but I was going to switch to Outlook Express.

    Option 1

    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.


    If that fails:


    Option 2

    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.


    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .
