Recently I tried to share a iPhoto event via my MobileMe photo gallery. Everything worked just fine, except that the event’s key photo in the notification email hasn’t been the one I chose.
After some time of digging into the problem I found a more or less easy workaround. So… in order to change the default picture which get’s send in the „tell a friend“ email, you need to set the „key photo“ before you upload the picture your MobileMe gallery. If you do it afterwards it has no effect at all.
- Make your photo you want to send in the email the key photo with a “right click” on the specific one
- Upload your event or album to MobileMe
- Click on the shared event in iPhoto and then click “Tell a friend” (Mail should open like this)
