Hi guys

 

I have an issue with my Iphoto since yesterday when I tried to import photos.

During the process import when it tried to finish it crashed. Since then after restart Iphoto crashes immediately after 10-20 sec.

 

I am wondering about this behaviour, because I have never had this problem since I bought my Macbook almost 3 years ago.

 

Any idea how to fix this issue?

 

best regards

    That's a hang not a crash.

     

     

    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?

    Option 1

    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.

     

    If that fails:

     

    Option 2

    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.

     

    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .
