From Germany here is another thread of the same issue as often posted the last months.

Unfortunately the given answers didn’t solve my problem, so I desperately ask for another solution.

 

My iPhoto, which worked totally stable all the last years, now crashes while importing even a single picture.

Pictures are of same source and format as ever...

 

I hope, there is a solution for me too!

 

Greetings from Stuttgart

iPhoto '11, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    This is the first time I've seen this issue on the forum.

     

    As a Test:

     

     

    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'

     

     

    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

    There 3ivx crash affected one - and only one - version of iphoto and was fixed by both an update to iPhoto and an update to 3 ivx.

     

    It has no relevance here.

     

    Note that the crash report is broken into threads:

     

    Thread 1:  Dispatch queue: com.apple.libdispatch-manager

     

    The crashed thread in the last one was no 34. Can you just post that section.

     

    Regards

    Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7)  and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

    The crashing thread is referencing ColorSync. Check that app for damaged profiles.

    I think you need to reinstall the OS.

    If you have any information or fix I will take it, I have exactly the same problem and it's not a question to reinstall the os because of Iphoto issue.

    I starting to look to alternative soft like lyn http://www.lynapp.com/ not sure if it can replace it yet but without fix or  workaround from Apple I start to look to alternative software.

     

    Best Regards,

    Cedric

    1. Are you sure it's the same crash?

     

    2. How do you know that it doesn't require re-installing the OS? Have you fixed it without doing that?

     

    Regards

    1: I can't be sure but seems that this issue has been describe a lot of time, your connect your device and the import process run forever. I already reported a bug about like other people with the same issue. https://discussions.apple.com/message/18142187?ac_cid=142432#18142187

     

    2: I never saw an operating system that needs a full re install to fix a minor bug like that. If it does It would completely unprofessional to let this kind of issue pass Q&A. Most of the time the re install argument appear when nobody knows what happens inside. I am sure that if developer wants to know what happens they will find something that will help.

     

    I am a bit sarchastic but honestly it just seems that there is no workaround or fix for this issue. If apple or anyone needs extra informations like dump of process or tools to investigate the issue just post instructions I will be happy to send extra informations.

     

    Regards,

    Cedric

    So it's not the same crash then?

     

    All of these apps use hooks built-in to the OS. If one of those elements go down, then you need to re-install the OS.

     

    This is quite regardless of your opinions of on professionalism and so on. But as a tip: if you want to solve your problem best to create your own thred (and not post into one that's not at all relevant) post a full description of the issue and spare use your opinions.

     

     

    Regards
