I don't know why, on the side of iPhoto where we can select the library, we got a section call WEB, where we got our Photo Stream and Facebook account.

 

I don't know why but I can't select those two facebook account and Photo Stream to see and manage the photos that are in those section. I click on it and nothing happen.

 

 

But I can share with the share button at the bottom to those sections

 

Can someone can tell me why I can't select those sections?

 

 

I got iPhoto 9.4 and Mountain Lion 10.8.2

Mac OS X (10.3.x)

    Make a temporary, backup copy (if you don't already have a backup copy) of the library and try the following:

     

    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your

         User/Home()/Library/ Preferences folder.

     

    2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your

         User/Home()/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder. 

     

    Click to view full size

     

    3 - launch iPhoto and try again.

     

    NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding down the Option key when launching iPhoto.  You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.

     

    NOTE 2:  In Lion and Mountain Lion the Home/Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.

    Since a new library works OK give this a go:

     

    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library

     

      1. Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
      2. Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
      3. Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
      4. In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
      5. Click on the Create button.

     

    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments. However, books, calendars, cards and slideshows will be lost. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.
