No it's not.
As a Test:
Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?
Post back with the result.

I tried the above with about twenty-five photos and iPhoto froze and also the computer again. I have written iPhoto because I believe this is a bug in the new version of iPhoto. Do you have anyother suggestions? This is very frustrating and it seems there is often critical bugs when new versions come out along with a new operating system. Sorry for my late reply.

It might be a bug but it's a pretty esoteric one that's only affecting you. If you beleive it's a bug then contact Apple
iPhoto Menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback
and report it. They're the only ones who can fix such things.
On the off chance that it's a local issue I'd swtich to another User Account and repeat the test.

I did test it out and I had no problems. I wonder if it is an issue with how many photos you have in iPhoto. I've had this iPhoto folder for years and have thousands of photo. That's too bad if it is. That's something that Apple should also fix.

You're mightly determined that Apple should fix this problem you're having, but they won't. One, because iPhoto works in the other account, it shows that iPhoto is functioning normally and two: you're the only person reporting it. All of that tells us that you have a local issue on your machine, in one user account. Most likely some out of date software or plugin is interfering with the normal running of iPhoto there.
iPhoto 11 v9.5 is good for about 1,000,000 images. How many do you have?

I am having the exact same problem. OS 10.9 and only since the last iphoto upgrade a few weeks ago.

This was happening to me in iPhoto 9.5 I did all the rebuilds, etc. Then updated to 9.5.1 - AND it happened again, just as you describe: works on some then freezes the computer - have to totally shut down and reboot. There appears to be no difference in why or how it freezes on some crops - a really bad fault in iPhoto.

Try the two fixes below in order as needed:
1 - launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
2 - run Option #4 to rebuild the database.
Using iPhoto Library Manager to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
1 - download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
2 - click on the Add Library button and select the library you want to add in the selection window..
3 - Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the Library ➙ Rebuild Library menu option.
4 - In the next window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
5 - Click on the Create button.
Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the probl
em or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

Have you tried creating a second library and testing the crop function there? If the problem still occurs, then you may want to try creating a new user account (in System Preferences) and trying iPhoto there. This will help you isolate the problem and determine if it is limited to the Library, user or system wide.

I updated iPhoto and continue to run into the freezing problem. I'm not sure what made me think this but I had several external hard disks connected and thought that maybe I should disconnect them. I did that and went back to my editing and for a couple of sessions it was working just find. Then I was doing another editing session and it froze. After a few naughty words, I dicovered that I had connected one of the other hard drives. I disconnected the hard drive and then rebooted. I have not run into the problem since. I should also say that my iPhoto Libraries are on an external hard drive and not on the computer. If I only have that HD connected and no others it works fine. Now that I have said that the next time I do some cropping it'll freeze up on me.

I tried Fix #1; didn’t work, so I will keep taking steps as others have so generously recommended. I will say - this had never happened in all the years I’ve (happily) used iPhoto - until I updated to Mavericks and innocently to iPhoto 9.5. Saying, this doesn't appear to be "my problem” but now indeed it seems it is….

you are not alone. I have the same issue even I make a new library with 50 pics
