I recently upgraded to Lion.

Now when I try to export an iPhoto slideshow as a QuickTime movie it goes through the initial rendering process but an error message appears with the iPhoto logo saying that I don't have permission for this task.


I've seen some people report issues with permissions and the desktop and/or other user folders. Try repair permissions with Disk Utility

  • Many thanks for that - I think I'm an Apple Dumbo (just fairly recently moved from Windows). Have just tried setting the save to a folder other than the "Shared Folder" it defaulted to, and hey presto, it worked. Probably nothing to do with LION or iPhoto.
