Using iMac 27" 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7.

 

Since I have upgrade to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 and iPhoto 9.4.1 and 9.4.2, using menu «Reveal in Finder» (original or modified photo) doesn't work anymore.

 

This menu was working fine beforehand.

 

Could it be related with the last upgraded version of Java (version 7, upgrade 9) ?

 

Thanks for your advices.

    Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7 and 10.8), make a new Library in that account, import some shots  and see if the problem is repeated there.

     

    Regards

    To re-install iPhoto

     

    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)

     

    2a: On 10.5:  Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.

     

    2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows:  In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type

     

    /var/db/receipts/

     

    2c: on 10.7 they're at

     

    /private/var/db/receipts

     

    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.

     

    3. Re-install.

     

    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.

     

    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.

     

    If you purchased it on the App Store or have a Recent Mac you can find it in your Purchases List.

    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 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.

    Possibly.  It's beginning to look like a system issue.  Try reapplying the OS X Mountain Lion Update v10.8.2 (Combo)  and repair disk permissions afterward.

    Where did you get iPhoto 9 in the first place?  From the App Store, came installed on your Mac or purchased the iLife 11 disc?

    Have you tried reinstalling iPhoto from the iLife 11 disc and the upgrade thru the Apple Downloads webpage to whatever version works best for you?

     

    If you do try a reinstall  you'll have to delete the current application and all files with "iPhoto" in the file name with either a .PKG or .BOM extension that reside in the:

     

    HD/Library/Receipts folder (10.5 and earlier)

     

    or from the /var/db/receipts/  folder (10.6) .

    or from the /private/var/db/receipts folder (10.7 or later)

    Then install iPhoto from the source it came from originally and apply the updaters.
