    There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on eight different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary from version to version and OS to OS. So before anyone can help, they need information to work with. Things like:



    - What version of iPhoto.

    - What version of the Operating System.

    - Details. What were you doing when the problem arose?

    - Did it ever work properly?

    - Are there error messages?

    - What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.


    Anything else you can think of that might allow someone else to understand your issue.


    With this kind of information somebody can develop a starting point for troubleshooting the issue.



    Posts that consist of "iPhoto doesn't work. Help" or "iPhoto won't print" or "Suddenly I have no photos!!!!!!!!!!" mean that any helper is simply guessing. More information means you get better assistance. (And no, more exclamation marks do not get help faster or make your issue seem urgent. They just make it seem like you have a stuck key )
