Whenever I start iPhoto it takes some 2 or 3 minutes before I can actually use it as I have to wait for the spinning beach ball to end. I've got 2,568 photos, 57 movies all which weighs in at 7.4GB, the files are not stored externally. This isn't a new problem in iPhoto 09 as I had the same problem in iPhoto 08 as well. I'm thinking maybe something is corrupt somewhere and it needs to be cleared out..? Anyone got any ideas..??
thanks for any help

Not sure how those options got turned on on my iPhoto, maybe after an update or something, but they were causing havoc. I rebuilt my library and even reinstalled iPhoto 08, but to no avail. Turning off the sharing option did the trick. Thanks so much.
