Yes, I apologize for my bad english. Yes, I swiped some photos, and It didn't move smoothly. I didn't take a slideshow or make a slideshow. Just, swiping. I am sorry for my english

No problem I just want to be sure I understand.
Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild.

Well, I am quite confused. Which one is the best between 4 choices avaiable? The problem is I can't swipe smoothly. So, Should I rebuild thumbnails only or database? I am really sorry, I am not a long user of Macintosh and iPhoto

Thank you for all your concerns and helps. I tried to apply the fic, but until now It hasn't been better. It still lags. I remembered, when I downloaded for this update, The download failed for 3 times. Would this affect my iPhoto? I mean, because The download failed, It might corrupt some of the files. Thanks, I appreciate all your helps and concerns

It is a possibility.
But before you reinstal, check if the slowness you are observing is caused by your iPhoto Library, the settings in your account, or a system wide problem.
- First of all, how full is your harddrive? If it is getting too full, less than 10GB free or so, multi media applications like iPhoto will slow down.
- Do you see the same slowness, when you are using a different iPhoto Library? (create one for testing, if you only have one library).
- Do you notice the same slowness, when working from a different user account (see: Isolating an issue by using another user account)
If iPhoto not lagging, when browsing a different library, your current iPhoto library is causing this; maybe you have a corrupted image or video in your library.
If iPhoto does not work in your account at all, but from a different user account, your preference file may have become corrupted.
If iPhoto does not work in any account, try safe boot mode: Mac OS X: What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode? and test iPhoto there.
Post back with your test results.
