It appears that EVERYTIME there is an iPhoto update, it messes up the key photos in Events and Albums. 

 

After updating to the latest version (9.4.2) of iPhoto on my MacBook Pro, the key photos do not match with the key photos in the Photos app of my iPhone and iPad. I have tried:

 

1. setting up "key photos" (right clicking in a picture and setting it as key photo) and sync iOS via iTunes - didn't change anything

2. deselected all events and albums and sync devices; and then selected to sync all events and albums (having over five thousand pictures to sync does take its time - approximately over two hours and a half) - but still did not change the key photos

3. in iPhoto, adjusted date and time of the photo I wanted to assign as key photo so that it would be the first photo in each event and album - still did not change the key photos in iOS devices

 

Is there a way so that the key photos would be the same throughout all devices?

    There is currently no connection between iPhoto for the Mac and for IOS - they are two totally different programs with the same name - unless there is a change you can not expect to control one from the other

     

    Suggest to Apple - it seems to be a logical enhancement and certainly feedback will not hurt  --  iPhoto menu ==> provide iPhoto feedback

    Hi Tom,

    same problem.

    I've already tried to rebuild the iPhoto database but nothing has changed.

    I'm facing this issue with both iPhone 3GS (iOS 5.1.1) and iPad 2 (same iOS release) - iPhoto 9.4.2.

     

    Does anyone have a solution?  

     

    thanks,

    Andrea

    Hi Terence,

    in my opinion, that's not a solution... 

     

    I mean, is it an iPhoto release bug? And is it known? And no workarounds exist at the moment?

    The point is that there is no solution... As to whether it is an iphoto bug or somewhere else I have no idea. Known by whom? Who did you tell?

    known by Apple.

    Ok, so..let's wait next update and hope this issue will be solved.

     

    thanks for your time,

    Andrea
