Hello,

I'd love to try sending pictures by email directly from iPhoto but cannot. If I try to do it iPhoto crashes.
No problem when Mail.app is used for the purpose.
Any ideas?

    Try creating a new, test library, import a couple of photos and see if you can email from it. Post back with the results.

    I created a new, small (4 pictures only) library and then I could send pictures by email from within iPhoto application.

    Then I switched back to my main, big, library and it still works - no idea why but this helped, for now at least.

    Thank you very much for your tip!

    Hi there,

    I am having the same problem, I tried your tip of making a new test library. When i clicked share<email, it got a bit further into the process than just the automatic crash with my main library. But it still crashes all the same...

    i haven't had iphoto9.1.1 all that long but i do remember being able to email photos from within the app, although i do remember that it happened very slowly..

    Make a temporary, duplicate copy of the library and try the three fixes below in order as needed:



    Fix #1


    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your Home/Library/Preferences folder.

    2 - delete iPhoto's cache files that are located in your Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder.

    3 - reboot, launch iPhoto and try again.




    NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding the the Option key. You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.


    Fix #2

    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys depressed and follow the instructions to rebuild the library. Select options #1, #2 and #6.



    Click to view full size



    Fix #3

    Rebuild the library using iPhoto Library Manager as follows:




    Using iPhoto Library Manager to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library


    1 -Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.

    2 -Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.

    3 - Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File->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 problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

    Thanks for your advice, but none of the 3 fixes have changed anything...

    i don't have my copy of iphoto 8 anymore or else i'm dying to switch back... :/

    Kindly explain, again, how to create new, test iPhoto Library;  I am having same problem, closing/crashing iPhoto 11, when I try to email photos.

     

    I updated iPhoto (9.42) and OS (10.8.2) recently (several weeks ago) and have been emailing (gmail) w/o problems until today.

     

    Assistance will be greatly appreciated.

     

    Thank you.

    Your suggestion of creating a "Test Library" in order to test emailing an image from that library when main library was failing to do that was successful---thank you for that!

     

    However, unlike OP, when I went back to my main  iPhoto library and tried to email from it, program crashed and closed.

     

    I'm thinking my only solution now, or most feasible one, would be to either export all photos from that library to "Test Library" or import all into that library.

     

    Please advise best way/method to accomplish that task---thank you!

    Why not look in the thread you created rather than post in one from more than a year ago?

    Thank you for your reply---not aware that I was doing that...
