    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?

    Back to the priginal library:

     

    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In Library Manager it's the FIle -> Rebuild command)

     

     

    This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.

     

     

    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

    I'm having a similar problem. 

     

    It's the most recent version of iphoto, and I'm on an early 2011 MacBook Pro with the OS X 10.8.2.

     

    iphoto crashes whenever I try to look at a specific photo.  It will show events and I can download pics from my phone, but it closes whenever I click on a specific pic.  Oddly enough, my desktop pic has also disappeared and has been replaced by some stock pic of a galaxy.  And, I set up a second user for my girlfriend a while back.  If I download pics at her they seem to work fine.

     

    I downloaded library manager, but don't see a "rebuild" option in the File dropdown menu.

     

    The first part of the Problem Report says:

    Great.  Did that.

     

    No when I open iphoto it says, "Your photo library is damaged or unreadable and cannot be opened. Please restore from a backup."

    I googled "restore iphoto from backup" and found this:

     

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2638?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

     

    which gave be instructions on how to get to photo library first aid in iphoto (just hold down "option" and "command" as you open iphoto).  I just went down the line of options with "repair permissions", "rebuild thumbnails", "repair database", and finally, "rebuild database".  The fisrt three didn't worked and it crashed each time, but "rebuild database" seems to have worked.

     

    I don't know why I downloaded library manager, but I guess there must have been some kind of rationale behind that suggestion.  Anyway, I can just dump it now.  Thanks for the help.
