Welcome to the Apple Discussions. When did this problem start? Was it after a recent software upgrade or installation? What exact version of iPhoto are you using and how much free space do you have on your HD?

Thanks for the reply, and the welcome. You'l probably end up sick of the sight of my posts: I am struggling with about half a dozen aspects of iPhoto!
Bizarrely, this problem now seems to have gone away - when I downoaded the latest patch for iPhoto, which bills itself as something like "resolving problems while browsing photos which have been autorotated by a camera". Hope it stays fixed now.
Embarassed to admit it, but I don't even know how to check hard-disk space. How do I do it?
As far as the version of iPhoto I'm using, it's 5.04 (263) - whatever the "263" means!
Again, thanks for your help...

There's always something new to learn and thankfully usually someone out there who's come across your problem before. Can't help you with your original problem, but I can say iPhoto 5 does seem more inclined to quit expectedly, more than version 4. I've taken to quitting manually at key points if working on a big job. (A bit like saving regularly on a pc.) When you get the option to file a report, I tend to send one off as the more they get, the more likely they are to take note and fix it.
As for your hard disk question: click the apple (top left), click "about this mac", click more info, click ATA, That will open a list. One of the 2 options will show your HD capacity and available space.
