Currently Being ModeratedJan 14, 2010 11:00 AM (in response to mrstee)Let me summarize what you've tried:
1 - deleted iPhoto's pref file.
2 - cleared the cache by logging out of MMe (System/MMe preference pane), logging in with bogus username and password which clears the cache and then logging back in with the correct username and password.
logged out of my main admin account and logged into a test user account (this was the only method that worked to publish) and; uploaded pictures from my MobileMe Gallery to iPhoto (this worked).
That indicates that there's something amiss with your primary account that is causing the problem. It could be a preference file other than iPhoto's. Here's how to determine if that's the case:
Trouble Shooting Preferences in Leopard
1 - Create a folder titled "Preferences A" on the Desktop.
2 - Open the working Preferences folder, HD/Users/your_name/Library/Preferences, and move the contents to the Preferences A folder on the Desktop.
3 - With the working Preferences folder empty run the application again and determine if the problems is fixed.
NOTE: you may have to drag the contents of the working folder to the trash and empty if moving the contents to the A folder only copies them instead of moving.
4 - If the problem is fixed:
A - open the working Preferences folder (HD/Users/your_name/Library/Preferences).
B - Open the Preferences A folder on the Desktop, select all of the contents and drag them into the working Preferences folder.
C - When the Copy window pops up check the "Apply to All" check box and then click on the Don't Replace button.
5 - If the problem is NOT fixed, empty the working Preferencess folder and move the contents of the Preferences folder on the desktop back into it.3Ghz iMac, 4G RAM, 1TB HD; MBP 2.16 Ghz 2G RAM; 1.5TB/160GB HDs;, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Canon:i850/8600F, Epson R280; 4G Nano, 30G Video iPod; Panasonic DMC-FS15

You won't believe what was causing the problem (you probably will believe it-you seem to have encountered every situation dealing with iPhoto!): the photos that were in the albums that I couldn't publish were sent to me from my daughter-in-law via email. I saved them to my desktop and then imported them into iPhoto, just like I always do. I was at my daughter-in-law's at the time and I had borrowed her SD card to import more pictures she had taken of my grandson and as they were all importing I wondered why I wasn't getting the message that some of them were duplicates, did I want to skip them...... That got me thinking. So I selected one of the photos in one of the albums that wouldn't publish that I knew was a duplicate and saw that that picture had 0kb!! The photo was there, I even showed the photos as a slideshow and all the photos were visible. Very odd. I am sure there is some explanation for this but I have no idea what! But I am a happy MeMaw now, now that I can publish the photos of my sweetie!
I appreciate you taking all that time to respond to my dilemma-but maybe it will serve as an answer to someone else's problem....... Take care, thanks again, Judy15" MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 2.53mhz/500G hard drive/24" second monitor
