When I try to print it says"NO AVAILABLE THEMES"

There were no themes located. Until at least one theme has been installed this print feature will be unavailable.

    The themes should be located in the HD/Library/Application Support/iPhoto/Themes folder. In previous versions they may have been in the User/Application Support/iPhoto/Themes folder. Check both places. If they are in the User location and not the HD location, move them to the HD locate, reboot and try again.



    I have found them in the HD where they should be. Now what do I do. It didn't say in the article. I drag and dropped and 500 photos started going into my library. I don't want to do that.



    Were the themes here - User/Application Support/iPhoto/Themes folder - if so drag the Themes folder here - HD/Library/Application Support/iPhoto/Themes folder.

    Were the themes here - HD/Library/Application Support/iPhoto/Themes folder - then leave them and go to the reinstall option

    What did you drag and drop - and from where to where?

    By reinstall do you men get the disc out and find iphoto? If so, I don't recall how to find it before I get to the applications folder.


    the iPhoto applications is in the applications folder
    the receipts are in the system receipts folder ("your hard drive" ==> library ==> receipts)
    The themes folders are at "User/Library/Application Support/iPhoto" and/or "HD/Library/Application Support/iPhoto"


    If the move doesn't take then you'll have to do the following;

    Restoring iPhoto Themes

    1 - delete the current application.

    2 - delete any files with iPhoto in the file name that reside in your HD/Library/Receipts folder.

    3 - delete the Themes folder from your User/Library/Application Support/iPhoto folder.

    Also look in the HD/Library/Application Support/iPhoto folder for a Themes folder. If there is one there then delete it also.

    5 - boot into the system disk that came with your computer and do a custom install selecting only iPhoto.

    After installing reinstall the iPhoto 7.1.5 updater again followed by a repair of disk permissions with Disk Utility. Also make sure you're running the latest Quicktime, 7.3.

    The iPhoto program and the iPhoto library are separate

    You should always have a current backup of your iPhoto library - software, hardware and human failures can lose your photos unless you have a backup to protect yourself

    I have exactly the same problem-- dialogue box says "no themes located..."
    However, the Themes folder is in the right place, and it contains scores of themes.

    Great! I too just resolved my problem. I went to a previous version of iPhoto (7.0.1) on an external HD, and discovered that i could print from that HD (requires changing startup disk). I then checked the size of the Themes Folder, and found that it was times over the size of the Themes Folder on my main (internal) HD. I dumped the internal Themes on that HD, and copied over the Folder from the external HD. Now i can print the way it's supposed to work! Hooray!
