Some years ago I scanned in many pictures from slides, and since have enjoyed looking at them on my computer. Today I tried to export them so I could burn them to disc, but when exported they are corrupt. Can you tell me why please? Thank you.


Looking again at an exported one, I realise that they are in negative, in colour but with bright reds and greens .

Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

When you export the file from iPhoto, do you save it as a JPEG?

I have just tried opening one in Photoshop, and it comes out positive, but the colours are just not right.


Are you able to upload the Powerpoint slideshow so I can export the files for you?

Please click here:

Upload the file and tell me the link or File ID

Whoops, that sounds a bit complicated! Do you mean just one photo or all? Do I have to open an account or anything? I have never used powerpoint.

Ah, sorry! I thought you said slideshow which is Powerpoint.

Can you upload a single photo so I can see the color problem that you are talking about?

Hope I have done this right! There's a first time for everything I guess!


The file is gone. Please upload it again with the new link

What a cute girl!

Try this when exporting..

Open iPhoto

Click on File then Export

It will ask the file type and select Current and see if it is still inverted.
