Tonight I imported photos into iPhoto from a Canon Rebel T2i, and the large previews look fine the first time I scan through them. But then if I run through them again some (not all) end up with what looks like a dark green overlay on them.


I've been using this camera and iPhoto for a couple of years now. This is a first. I'm shooting RAW (CR2), so I'm guessing the iPhoto RAW processor got borked in an update recently.


Saw similar issues in the forum from people using Aperture. Tried a few of their suggestions to no avail. Anyone else running into this with iPhoto?

iPhoto '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Have you enabled "highlight tone priority" in your Canon camera? The mac raw conversion does not handle this feature, and so the camera generated jpegs will reflect the highlight tone priority, but the developed raw image will not.


    If you have been using this feature, turn it off and try again.
