My iMac 2.5 GHz is starting to freeze and hang.  I am not certain which of the following may be culprit.


I've added a second external hard drive which (WD Timemachine) I use as a second backup with Timemachine.


The computer seems to freeze when I am trying to upload photos from my iphone 5 into iphoto '11.


I am attaching some photos of a crash that occured a few months ago.  The frequency of the problem seems to be increasing.  But I have not had this error screen appear again. 


I've also noticed that recently imported photos are not immediately appearing in iphoto for import via another application, such as Safari.


I'm not sure where to begin in systematically narrowing down the problem.



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), iPhoto '11
