    Remember: we cannot see your machine. There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on 8 different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary depending on the version of iPhoto and the version of the OS.  So to get help you need to give as much information as you can. Basic things like :

     

     

    - What version of iPhoto.

    - What version of the Operating System.

    - Details. As full a description of the problem as you can. For instance: 'iPhoto won't export' is best explained by describing how you are trying to export, and so on.

    - History: Is this going on long? Has anything been installed or deleted?

    - Are there error messages?

    - What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.

    - Anything unusual about your set up? Or how you use iPhoto?

     

    Anything else you can think of that might help someone understand the problem you have.

    Do you have a backup?

     

    Right click on teh iPhoto library (by default in the pictures folder) and show package contents - do NOT make any changes of any sort but look in the masters folder and see if your photos are there and report back - again do not make any changes of any sort

     

    And it probably is going to be important to know exactly what "recovery program" you tried, what you did to try to recover and what the results were
