    iPhoto doesn't support pdf files.  It never has.  There used to be a feature in the older systems that would save a pdf as a jpeg file to iPhoto.  Here's how to reestablish that capability:


    Here's how to get any file into iPhoto as a jpeg file:


    1 - open the file in any application that will open it.


    2 - type Command+P to start the print process.


    3  - click on the PDF button and select "Save PDF to iPhoto".



    NOTE:  If you don't have any of those options go to Toad's Cellar and download these two files:


    Save PDF to iPhoto 200 DPI.workflow.zip

    Save PDF to iPhoto 300 DPI.workflow.zip


    Unzip the files and place in the HD/Library/PDF Services folder and reboot.


    4 - select either of the files above (300 dip is used for photos to be included in a book that will be ordered).


    5 - in the window that comes up enter an album name or select an existing album and hit the Continue button.




    That will create a 200 or 300 dpi jpeg file of the item being printed and import it into iPhoto.
