Launch iPhoto and all is well. Launch iP Preferences pane and in about 30 seconds the spinning beach bal of death appears and I have to Force Quit after waiting a looooong time.


Another thread connected this to iCloud but I am Snow Lion w/no iC set up.


I have rebuilt the entire app at startup, removed the Prefs and Cache files.


iPhoto Library is 135 GB but I was not having this issue before.


iPhoto 09,

V. 8.1.2

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7), iMac 24" 2.8 ghz 4 GB RAM
