The first thing I noticed, is you are selecting an "event", not a picture. An Event is a group of pictures, not one single image.
Try this. Select "photos" in the left column, locate an image, click it so it gets the yellow band around it, then go to file / print.
For more iPhoto help - When you have the iPhoto application open, it will display the word "iPhoto" beside the "Apple". The last option in this top menu bar is "Help". Clicking on the help menu will display the links to the iPhoto help menu. Selecting "iPhoto Help" will open an onboard help window. In the top right hand "search area", type "printing" and hit return.

If the original image is corrupt, then you may have this issue.
Does it open in full screen in iPhoto?? Test by double clicking on it in iPhoto. Also, try other images to see if it happens to all images, or just some of them.

Opened it and others in full screen-same thing happens each time.
Thanks again for thinking about stuff to try.
Since I only have 57 photos in iPhoto, would it be worth deleting all of them and trying some new ones?

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
User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).
or with Mt. Lion from the User/Library/Containers/com.apple.iPhoto/
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.
NOTE 2: In Lion and Mountain Lion the Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.

Thanks for showing me how to do all of that. I found the ones that you said to delete and did so.
Unfortunately, the problem is still occurring. I even restarted, hoping that would help but it didn't. Shades of my pc days.
I really thought that this would do the trick.
Thanks again for taking time to help out. I may have to just be content to print photos from other programs but I would like to be able to use iPhoto.

If you want to start again with iPhoto......
- quit iPhoto
- launch finder - select pictures - right click on your iPhoto Library and select "show package content"
- locate a folder called "masters" and drag it to your desktop
- close all open windows
- hold down your "option" key on your keyboard, and launch iPhoto with this key held down
- in the window that appears, select "create new" along the bottom, and create a new iPhoto library
- once open, go to "file / import to library" and choose the masters folder on your desktop

Try this: launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and create a new, test library. Import some photos and check to see if the same problem persists. If it does then a reinstall of iPhoto is indicated. To do so you'll have to delete the current application and all files with "iPhoto" in the file name with either a .PKG or .BOM extension that reside in the:
HD/Library/Receipts folder (10.5 and earlier)
or from the /var/db/receipts/ folder (10.6) .
or from the /private/var/db/receipts folder (10.7 or later)
Then install iPhoto from the source it came from originally.

Just tried the test library and used some photos that were not in the default library and the 1 of 5001 still shows up and the dialog box is blank.
I found that folder that you referenced and I only have 2 iPhoto files: com.apple.pkg.iPhoto_appstore.bom and ........iPhoto_appstore.plist. I don't have all of the ones that you are showing in your screen shot. Is that normal?
The other problem is that iPhoto came with my Mac Mini and I did not get an install disc or anything. Not sure how I will be able to install it if I delete it. Will it show up in the App store as something that I can install?
This is kind of scary for a newbie. I am willing to try it as long as I know that I can get the program through the App store or wherever-just not sure how that works.

Go to the App Store and log in with the Apple ID that was used to purchase the Mini or register it when first used. Click on the Purchases button and you'll be able to re-download iPhoto and install it.
You can put your current iPhoto in the Trash bin and not empty it till you reinstall a new iPhoto.
