After importing over 26,000 photos from external WD HD and checking them OK on Library menu, I named faces in all 65 events created automaticaly. After IPhoto crashed at the end of procedure and I reopened, all events were shown as empty but with correct dates. No faces were added to list and total amount of photos went back to 3,500 that already on the Mac.

Memory has all 26,000 somewhere and if I try and load a photo again, I get the Notice asking if I want a copy imported.

What can I do to access all 26,000 new photos??

iPhoto '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    • Have you checked the Trash bin in iPhoto?
    • And checked, if the photos have been hidden accidentally? Press the command "Photos > Hidden Photos ⇧⌘H". To unhide all photos, use the command "Photos > Unhide Photos ⌘L"


    If these simple methods do not increase the photo count, try to repair your iPhoto library with the First Aid Tools.

    Old Toad has a nice description how to repair and rebuild in this post: Try first the repair option, and if that does not help, back up your iPhoto library and go for "Rebuild".
