    I am having the same problem.  I can view B&W scanned photos, but when I create a slideshow they are distorted.

    Try changing the colour profile for these photos to RGB.

    I am having a hard time finding a editor that will do this.  GIMP offers a SGI option but that does not work.  Can you giver me a suggestion as to finding a free editor that can do this?  Thanks for all of your helpp BTW....

    OK............ I have exported one of the .JPGs as a .GIF and now iPhoto seems to recognise it (it would not imoprt it as a .JPG or a .PNG).  I will test it out and report back.

    OK....that worked.  I used GIMP to export the picture as a .GIF and it now displays in a test file.  I will export the files in question.  Thanks for your help.  Side note....

     

    Rant on: 

    All of the 100 or so .jpgs displayed just fine last Christmas.  Apple screwed somthing up in one of their software "upgrades".  Our house is total Apple BECAUSE it "just works".  No more.  Apple needs to be a **** of a lot more careful or they WILL lose this reputation.  Maps comes to mind... 

    Rant off.  Sorry.......

    I went back into Photoshop 10 and changed the colour profile of the B&W scanned photos to sRGB (and some to Adobe RGB).  Problem solved! The scanning software must assign a B&W profile to the jpg file that Apple TV can't read in slideshow mode.  Funny that the B&W images displayed perfectly when selected individually.
