Has anyone been able to import DNG files into iPhoto 6?
I've converted my Pentax RAW images to DNG using the Adobe DNG converter and iPhoto

"The following files could not be imported (they may be an unrecognized file type or the files may not contain data)."

Well, I found out why. Apple's website states:

"DNG files must be generated by the Adobe DNG Converter, with the "Convert to Linear Image" option turned off, and created from RAW formats that are otherwise already supported by Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later."

Very weird, very stupid. If an open source application like DCRAW can handle DNG and Pentax RAW fine, why the hell can't Apple?
