Iphoto11  9.4.2 is an utter distaster! It will not sync in anyway and if you try  add a photo it just locks up. Has anyone else had this issue??? Are there any future updates in the works to resolve these problems? I have tried everything.

    Please, give us a list of the "everything" you've tried so we don't waste your time (and ours) making suggestions that already know won't work.

    Sync to where and how?  What system version are your using? Surely not 10.5.1.

    If your system is truly 10.5.1 you can't possibly have iCloud on your Mac or in iPhoto.  It requires a minimum of 10.7.5 or later - iCloud: System requirements.

     

    You need to have the iCloud preference pane in System preferences and be signed in to your iCloud account:

    Try this:  launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and create a new, test library.  Import some photos and check to see if the same problem persists.

    You've run all of the standard fixes that are usually suggested except one.  Boot into Safe Mode,  Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode, and see if iPhoto will run there.  It's a long shot but it's to see if a reinstall of the system is the next step.  'Tis a puzzlement.

    Can you reinstall an earlier version of iPhoto 9?  Like 9.2x or 9.3x and see if you can create a new library and import photos?  If you can't then I would tend to think it's a system issue of some sort.  This is a tough one to crack.
