When in iphoto At smallest setting photos are fine.

When making them larger (Zoom) some disapear and show a Dotted Box.

What causes this?

    As a Test:

     

     

    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'

     

     

    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

    Make a temporary, backup copy of your library if you don't already have one (Control-click on the library and select Duplicate from the contextual menu) and  apply the two fixes below in order as needed:

     

    Fix #1

     

    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.

    Since only one option can be run at a time start with Option #1, followed by #3 and then #4 as needed.

     

    Fix #2

     

    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.
