Well, how do I end this vicious corrupted photos cycle? I get a corrupted photo that shuts down iPhoto, I do a restore, but somehow a new photo gets corrupted. No exageration, I have rebuilt my iphoto library 12 times since August. As for third party software, after a whole night running, iPhoto Library Manager sat there doing absolutely nothing, and not to get sidetracked on an unrelated argument, while third-party software can be awesome, it should not be a necessity in order to simply make one of Apple's most advertised and lauded programs even operate.
The problem here is that you're not giving us any information that will allow us to help.
Remember: we cannot see your machine. There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on 8 different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary depending on the version of iPhoto and the version of the OS. So to get help you need to give as much information as you can. Basic things like :
- What version of iPhoto.
- What version of the Operating System.
- Details. As full a description of the problem as you can. For instance: 'iPhoto won't export' is best explained by describing how you are trying to export, and so on.
- History: Is this going on long? Has anything been installed or deleted?
- Are there error messages?
- What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.
- Anything unusual about your set up? Or how you use iPhoto?
Anything else you can think of that might help someone understand the problem you have.
iPhoto Library Manager is not necessary for iPhoto to work. But it's a handy tool if you can't fix other things. Use it, don't, whatever.
