The max dimension should apply to portrait as well and landscape. Try this: launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and create a new, test library. Import some photos and check to see if the same problem persists.

Yeah I know ! I never had this problem before... Treatment is like blocked when you keep in eye the progress bar, you can see very quickly iPhoto is not resizing the picture...
I will try your solution and keep you updated Thx for the answer

OK... So I exported 15 pics from my current library with their original size (100%, 18M), I created a new library and imported these 15 pics in the new library and try to export them in "Big" size (1280M) (Don't know if it's this word that is used, I have a French version...)...
Guess what ? It works... My 15 pics are resized correctly....
Maybe my library needs to be rebuilt ? How I can do that ?
Thank you for your answer !

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 Repair Database. If that doesn't help, then try again, this time using Rebuild Database.
If that fails:
Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In Library Manager it's the FIle -> Rebuild command)
This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places 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.

I will try that when I will have my new Hard Drive, because I have almost 50GO of pictures and 6Go free.... I don't have my Time Machine hard drive with me for moment
Something strange is when I import on my old library the 15 pics I just extracted from my new library, my old library resizes these pics correctly... ...

and 6Go free
And that's the basis of your problem:
OS X needs about 10 gigs of hard drive space for normal OS operations - things like virtual memory, temporary files and so on. Without this space your Mac will slow down as the OS hunts for space on the disk, files will be fragmented, also slowing things down, apps will crash and the risk of data corruption - that is damage to your files, photos, music - increases exponentially. Your first priority is to make more space on that HD. Nothing else can be done until you do. Purchase an external HD and move your Photos and Music to it. Both iPhoto and iTunes can run perfectly well with the Library on an external disk.

Yeah, I noticed for exemple that when I want to save my iPhone on my computer, it doesn't work even if I delete my previous save...
I will buy a new hard drive (or clean all my videos...) and see what's happen

Thank you for the advice !
I will burn all my TV show in DVD, I will try to keep 15Gb until I buy a new hard drive. I will keep you updated about iPhoto...
Thank you for your answers

If those TV shows were downloaded from the iTunes store they may be DRM and not be able to be burned thru iDVD. I'm not familiar with iTunes TV episodes but DRM music from the iTunes store won't work in iDVD. Check with one of the episodesd.

It's strongly recommended that one maintain a minimum of 10 GB of free space on the boot drive for optimal system and application performance, more if possible. If you use iDVD then that should be a minimum of 20 GB free space.
