I'm using I-Photo 9 ver. 8.0.4 in Snow Leopard. Had no troubles till recently. I followed your advice and rebuilt my library and it fixed 90% of my problem but I still have a few problems. Now I can't open the effects box in edit. And I still have a few issues where I'm forced to Force-Quit the program to Exit as the spinning wheel returns for a while.
Thanks for the help. At least I can use the database and most of the functions now.
Try the following:
1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your
User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
3 - launch iPhoto and try again.
NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding down the Option key when launching iPhoto. You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.
