Cameras were Canon 20D and 50D. Until yesterday both were using the sRAW color space - switched them to Adobe RAW today. Problem was the 1,700 pictures with sRAW colorspace taken over the past few years - no issue importing into Adobe Photoshop CS4 (not surprising at it uses its own libraries), problem was only with iPhoto. I had what iPhoto reported as the latest update to Camera Raw, however when I browsed the Apple support pages I found v3.0 which I installed. That fixed the problem as it now has sRAW support for Canon cameras.
Only issue that remains is importing of DNG formatted pictures. iPhoto will not import those, which is hard to understand as it is becoming the defacto cross platform format for RAW files.
I don't recall having this issue on my older MacBook using an older version of iPhoto and older libraries...
Anyway, good news is that v3.0 fixed the problem.
Apple's iPhoto CROPS the images during import!
When I import a raw cr2 image (size 3888x2592) from a Canon 400D the image size is reduced from 3888x2592 to 3888x2588.
4 horizontal lines are CUT OFF!
Canon digital professional displays the original cr2 filesize as 3888x2592 and converts this to a tif file the same size.
Why is iPhoto doing that?
and how can I prevent it?
