    Did you restore the iPhoto program? or the iPhoto library?


    If you restored an older version of the iPhoto program them simply install your latest version from the disks - either the restore disks that came with your computer or the purchased upgrade disks - remove the iPhoto receipts first


    reinstall iPhoto - go to your receipts folder ("Your hard drive" ==> library ==> receipts) and remove any iPhoto receipts and reinstall from the restore disks that came with your computer - do a custom install of bundled software only
