Has anyone notice any issues with uploading photos onto your iphone since the Iphoto update? Under the photo tap in Itunes, "events" seem to be copied about 3-4 times and the photos aren't complete in any of the events. When check with the program Iphoto everything seems to be fine from there.

Filed a bug report about this, its due to the iphoto 9.1.2 update. Simple to downgrade via time machine backups, if u have a backup before updating, simply restore the iphoto app in your applications folder, and all will be WELL!

Hmmm...not quite sure what they have fixed in iPhoto regarding the 'Full Screen'. I have updated all of my three Macs this morning and having clicked on the 'Full Screen' icon in the bottom left of the screen, the bottom bar still remains.

The full screen fix is regarding the latest Developer Preview of Lion, it's now a native full screen app, like all others the full screen button is now located on the top right corner and it now works.

A restart for a font update...? :rolleyes:

That may seem like an overkill indeed, but 10.6.7 did broke something in font department. That opentype problem has taken quite some time to fix. Seems that it was a complex and "deep" bug to hunt down. Good if they have found the culprit now. Thumbs up.
