With that amount of information, no.
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.

Mac is 2008. Using OSX 10.6.8. iPHOTO O9 (8.1.2)
Mac was working fine till about 6 months ago then started to get major spinning wheel issues and crashes. even refused to turn on at times. being not too techie i tried various manuals and apple site for help etc. eventually had apple shop have a look at it. they checked hardware and reinstalled software. its working a nit better now but still quite slow but also noticed that all my photos in event mode are greyed out boxes (cant see whats there without opening each event) all photos are still there tho!
I have never noticed any error messages.
Have apprx 14.3GB of 6500 photos and 15 movies.
am considering increasing my RAM to address slowness issues but any advice about iphoto would be greatly appreciated.
How big is your HD? How much free space on it.
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. Include the option to rebuild the thumbnails. It can take 3 or 4 goes for this to work
