iPhoto is horrible. Just so slow and laggy. Not like other apple products. I've given up on it a long time ago and use Picasa. Works like a charm.

Picassa sounds like a plan until something gets done

Does anyone know if this issue has been resolved yet? I am constantly having this problem when I try to edit the photograph, it's so frustrating because I have photos I have uploaded from over a year ago that I can't do anything with.

My iPhoto is also horrific. Hangs, lags, shuts down. So bad that I can't even update preferences (turn off photostream) to try to fix the issue. Every time I update a preference it lags out & shuts down. Its unusable. Sad this product this much of a joke.

Not sure if this has already been resolved, but I too have been having major drag issues with iPhoto 11 (9.4.3) as well. Tried rebuilding everything (backed up prior to rebuilding). Ended up turning off Photostream and TADDAAHH. That was it. Working faster than ever. I have 10,000 + photos in there and really thought that was the issue. I think with that many photos, Photostream may be struggling with it.
Hope this helps.

mid-2011 macbook pro
OS X 10.0.3
2.4 GHz Intel Core i7
Removed the dvd and installed a 500GB solid state drive
Replaced the 750GB, 5400 rpm drive with same capacity 7200rpm
Created a disk volume combining the SSD and the spinning platter(s) to form a 1.25TB disk.
The machine boots in ~13 seconds, of which 8 second comprise the hardware check! I cannot go back to anything other than the SSD.
Have run diskutil multiple times and the drive/file system check out fine.
~14K photos in iPhoto and navigating between photos in an event is excruciating slow.
Nice to see that I’m not the only one in the same situation, and I’m disappointed with this product.
I’ve held down the Command key and rebuilt … it’s just really slow.

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?
Currently Being ModeratedMay 2, 2013 12:40 PM (in response to Terence Devlin)
I created a new library and imported ~500 pictures. Navigation is great.

As rebuilding with iPhoto's own tools don't help:
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.

So basically the iPhoto Library metadata database was not designed to handle a photo library with 14K objects. Bummer things like indexes, b-tree's have been around for a long time. This is not a hard problem. I would really like to see Apple address this issue. I'm not a professional photographer, yet I have a lot of pictures and the library is growing. I currently shoot a Nikon D800 that has a 36M pixel sensor. I shoot in RAW (.nef) and high resolution JPEG. Lots of more bigger pictures to store and organize. I understand what iPhoto Lib Manager is doing thanks.

No, iPhoto is good for 1,000,000 items in any library - in the current version. Earlier versions were good for 250,000. My largest library is 45k items, we regularly see reports on here of Libraries in excess of 100k.
The issue is that your library is damaged. FIx it, don't fix it. whatever. When it comes to th sensor in your camera size doesn't matter a whit. Bigger pictures is just file storage.

Thank you for that. I was also going to add that my iPad 3 had no issues flipping pictures. And I understand that the size of the files is independent of the meta data database. With the hardware that I have I can move bits.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 3, 2013 3:19 AM (in response to OneFastSkater)
So how do I fix it? I've rebuilt the database, by starting iPhoto and holding command + option.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 3, 2013 3:21 AM (in response to OneFastSkater)
I just rebuilt the database "again" and the navigation speed is much better.
