I am using Version 9.4.2 - i  have been on various forums and they indicate deleting the file 3vix.  Have checked my HD for this and it does not appear to exist. I am using Lion 10.7.5 OS. I  have created additional Iphoto library's this has the same problem. In addition when I open Iphoto it always advises that there are inconsistencies in the library

 

I have checked permissions and carried out the 1st Aid check on Iphoto? Any suggestions please?  Thanks.

    I'm having the very same issue with my Macbook Air. Same OS and iPhoto version - iPhoto version 9.4.2, OS 10.7.5.

    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?

    Another test:

     

    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. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

    Well that points to the notion that iPhoto the application is fine (otherwise the problem would persist in the new account) and that the Library is probably fine (otherwise the new Libraries in the main account woul work).

     

    So, a new suspect is a 3rd party element interfering with iPhoto on some level.

     

    Boot into Safe Mode and try again in the main account.

    Since it works OK in the other account there may be a preference file that is causing the problem. First  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. 

     

    home.PNG

    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.

     

    If that doesn't help it could be another pref file, other than iPhoto's, that is the culprit.  Here's how that can be tested:

     

    Trouble Shooting Preferences

     

    NOTE: 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.

     

    1 - close all applications.

     

    2 - open your Home/Library folder and Option-drag (copy) the Preferences folder to the Desktop. 

     

    3 - select the contents of your Home/Library/Preferences folder and drag them into the Trash bin in the Dock.  You will be asked to provide your Admin password.

     

    4 - reboot.

     

    5 - run the application again and determine if the problems is fixed

     

    6 - If the problem is fixed:

     

    A - open the working Home/Library/Preferences folder.

     

    B - Open the Preferences  folder on the Desktop, select all of the contents and drag them into the working Home/Library/Preferences folder.

     

    C - When the Copy window pops up check the "Apply to All" check box and then click on the Don't Replace or Skip button.

     

    http://oldtoad.net/Forum/Copypref2.PNG

     

    D - reboot.

     

    7 - If the problem is NOT fixed, drag the contents of the Preference folder on the Desktop into the Home/Library/Preference folder and replace the entire contents that were created by clicking on Replace.

     

    8 - reboot.

    Are the deleted files put back in when Iphoto is re-lauched?

     

    If you're referring to the files in the Preference folder on the Desktop then yes, in a manner of speaking:

     

    6 - If the problem is fixed:

     

    A - open the working Home/Library/Preferences folder.

     

    B - Open the Preferences folder on the Desktop, select all of the contents and drag them into the working Home/Library/Preferences folder.

     

    C - When the Copy window pops up check the "Apply to All" check box and then click on the Don't Replace or Skip button.

     

    Copypref2.PNG

     

    This replaces all of the files that were not recreated when you rebooted and will reset many of the preferences for the system and other applications after the reboot.
