I install a plugin (iphoto2tumblr) and then I couldn't export photos anymore. It doesn't respond when I press "export"

I couldn't find the file of the plugin. So I decide to reinstall iphoto but mac store doesn't let me do that. Anyone know how to solve it?

    I would contact the makers of the plug-in for instructions on how to re-install it. There are several places it could be. Unless it's within the Application package - and that's one of the places - reinstalling won't help.

    I found the following at this website: Boris Penck · iPhoto Export to Tumblr · FAQ


    How to remove the plugin

    Go to iPhotos's plugin folder ...

    open ~/Library/Application\ Support/iPhoto/Plugins/

    ... and delete "iPhoto2Tumblr.iPhotoExporter"



    Otherwise download and use  Find Any File  to search for "iphoto2bumblr".  If you find it you can drag it and any other file with that in the file name to the Desktop.  Then launch iPhoto and try exporting again.
