    And who is Dale Weishaar? What exactly was his advice? No one here knows anything about when anyupdate is coming - we are all users just like you

     

    rmember we don't know you (or yoru friends), can not see your computer and only knwo what you tell us so actually facts and details are critical

    What version of iPhoto are you using?  What do you mean by greeting card - one of the layouts in the iPhoto mail option?

     

    Can you post the first 50 lines of the crash report? You can find it by opening the Console application (in the Applications/Utilities folder) and looking under crash reports/iPhoto.

     

    And where did you find this dale weishaar?

    by greeting card i mean one of the layouts of the iPhoto email option which i now send from my icloud email to my gmail.  before the many crashes,  my icloud email could not send these cards.

     

    dale weishaar  ws the very first one who replied to me and gave me instructions how to repair disk utilities.

     

    i ahve read about FX Photo Studio Pro, is this a good APP?  is this better than iPhoto?

    Re: why does iPhoto11 shut down often on my macbook? it did this 5 times yesterday and once today

    this was the reply i got from DALE WEISHAAR AND WHICH I FOLLOWED. HOWEVER, AFTER I DID THIS IT CRASHED AGAIN BUT ONCE ONLY. AFTER THAT CRASH, EVERYTHING WAS OKAY AGAIN.

     

    First, Start from your recovery system. OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion includes a built in set of utilities in the Recovery System. Restart your Mac and hold down the Command key and the R key (Command-R), and keep holding them until the Apple icon appears, indicating that your Mac is starting up. After the Recovery System is finished starting up, you should see a desktop with a OS X menu bar and a "Mac OS X Utilities" application window. Note: If you see a login window or your own desktop and icons, it is possible that you didn't hold Command-R early enough. Restart and try again.

    When your computer finishes starting up, choose Disk Utility from the Utilities window.

    Click the First Aid tab. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.

    Select your OS X volume.

    Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.

    If that doesn't help, try a new post in the iPhoto forum.

    Those instructions have nothing to do with iPhoto at all.

     

    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?

    As Terence said those instruction have nothing to do with iPhoto.  The following is from About Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions feature

    Does Disk Utility check permissions on all files?


    Files that aren't installed as part of an Apple-originated installer package are not listed in a receipt and therefore are not checked. For example, if you install an application using a non-Apple installer application, or by copying it from a disk image, network volume, or other disk instead of installing it via Installer, a receipt file isn't created. This is expected. Some applications are designed to be installed in one of those ways

    So if you want to repair permissions on the iPhoto LIbrary you need to repair it with the iPhoto application, i.e. launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and select Repair Permissions.  However, they may be other items in the library that are damaged, like the database. So give the following a try (for iPhoto 11): apply the two fixes below in order as needed:

     

    Fix #1

     

    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.

    Since only one option can be run at a time start with Option #3, followed by #4 and then #1 as needed.

     

    Fix #2

     

    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library

     

    1 - download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.

     

    2 - click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.

     

    3 - Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option.

     

    4 - In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.

     

    5 - Click on the Create button.

     

    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments.  However, books, calendars, cards and slideshows will be lost. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.
