I already tried all options when starting iphoto with alt and cmd pressed - doesn't work

I restarted my mac - doesn't work

I clicked "repair" and "verify" disk in "disk utilities" - doesn't work


My iphoto library has about 2000 pictures, I have a macbook air 11' and the latest version of iphoto. The problem first came up when i imported pictures directly to iphoto from my digicam - iphoto kept on shutting down unexpectedly. Alt+cmd worked then, I rebuilt the library. Since then iphoto is running slow. I cannot even scroll down or up without waiting and getting a beachball.


Please help me - I have no idea what to do!


Thank you very much!

MacBook Air (11-INCH, MID 2011)
