I'm trying to export some photos from iPhoto to my Home Folder. I follow the instructions in the Help File.

I select the photo, choose File-Export...

For the File Name I choose "Sequential".

In the "Prefix for sequential" box it shows the Event Name.

I select "Export", and in the dialog box that follows, it displays "Save As:" Event Name1.

That works fine, but when I do the same for each additional photo, it won't increment to Event Name2 and so on.

Any ideas how to correct this?

    For that feature to work you have to export the pictures out in a batch.
    So highlight all 50 pictures you want and then do the File > Export.
    If you don't highlight all the desired images to start with, iPhoto doesn't know it is supposed to apply sequential numbering to more than a single picture, hence you get "prefix value" + 1.

    Hope that helps.
