    To re-install iPhoto

     

    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)

     

    2a: On 10.5:  Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.

     

    2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows:  In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type

     

    /var/db/receipts/

     

    2c: on 10.7 or later they're at

     

    /private/var/db/receipts

     

    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.

     

    3. Re-install.

     

    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.

     

    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.

     

    If you purchased it on the App Store or have a Recent Mac you can find it in your Purchases List.

    Still the same problem. I deleted iPhoto and the receipts and re-installed it from the App Store. I also tried the same thing and re-installed iPhoto from the iLife disk and incrementally added all the updates. I'm aboutready to find an alternative to iPhoto.

    Well if it's not the app, then it can be either a faulty disk or the OS needs a re-install. It's one or the other.

    I re-installed OS X ... and still have the same problem with iPhoto.

    So, it's not iPhoto, it's not the OS. What's left?

    Boot into Safe Mode, Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode, and try iPhoto from there. If it imports successfully reboot and try again.

    I solved my problem by reverting to OS X 10.6 and iPhoto 8.  It had been my experience that iPhoto 9 and Pages did not play well with OS X 10.8.
