    You need to re-install iPhoto. It's missing bits of itself:

    Library not loaded: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iLifeSlideshow.framework/Versions/A/iLifeSlid eshow
    Reason: image not found

    To re-install iPhoto

    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)

    2. Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name

    3. Re-install.

    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.

    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.

    Thank you - i did it, reinstall it and now it works.
    one BIG problem now - it won't open my iphoto library backup
    it says it's preparing to import but nothing...

    How did you make this back up? This is key because restoring a back up is dependant on how it was created.

    Also, don't import one Library to another. It'll make a mess and you'll lose a whole lot of data.

    i have a iphoto library that was made with time machine - with all my 30,000 photos!!
    can it be saved?

    To restore a TM back up you need to enter the TM interface, travel back in time to an known good back up and then click Restore.
