The photos that I download from my camera do not appear in events. They do appear in the photo-library. When I try to find them from the upload-function of a social-media site (hyves = something like a Dutch facebook) they are no where to be found. They are not uploaded with a wrong date. I never had this problem before and I'm a iPhoto-user from the beginning of iPhoto with a library of almost 11,000 pictures. I'm using version 9.1.3.

iPhoto '11, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    They do appear in the photo-library.

     

    This is in the iPhoto Window? Right?

     

    The Library View is just another view of the Same material that's in Events. So, if there in the Library then they are in an Event.

     

    Right Click on a photo and select 'Show Event' to be brought to the shot in it's Event.

     

    Or, enable Event Titles in the View Menu to see the Photos view broken by Event

    Have you checked the options in the View Menu -> Sort Events?

    Start with the basic fix:

     

    Try trash the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file from the HD/Users/ Your Name / library / preferences folder. (Remember you'll need to reset your User options afterwards. These include minor settings like the window colour and so on. Note: If you've moved your library you'll need to point iPhoto at it again.)

     

    What's the plist file?

     

    For new users: Every application on your Mac has an accompanying plist file. It records certain User choices. For instance, in your favourite Word Processor it remembers your choice of Default Font, on your Web Browser is remembers things like your choice of Home Page. It even recalls what windows you had open last if your app allows you to pick up from where you left off last. The iPhoto plist file remembers things like the location of the Library, your choice of background colour, whether you are running a Referenced or Managed Library, what preferences you have for autosplitting events and so on. Trashing the plist file forces the app to generate a new one on the next launch, and this restores things to the Factory Defaults. Hence, if you've changed any of these things you'll need to reset them. If you haven't, then no bother. Trashing the plist file is Mac troubleshooting 101.

     

    Regards

    Hold down the option (or alt) key key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library'

     

    Never import one Library to another. It makes massive amounts of duplicates and you lose all your Events, Albums, keywords etc etc

    Which problem? You found the photos in your Events, didn't you?

     

    What do you mean by "nowhere to be found" and which "upload function" are you using?

     

    Regards

    Your Media Browser is not updating then.

     

    Try repair permissions with Disk Utility

     

    Where is your Library? On the Start Up Disk? On  another one? If another one, what format is it?

     

    Regards

    Quit iPhoto

     

    Go to your Pictures Folder and find the iPhoto Library there. Right (or Control-) Click on the icon and select 'Show Package Contents'. A finder window will open with the Library exposed.

     

     

    Look there for two XML files with AlbumData in their name

     

     

    Drag them to the Desktop. *Make no other changes*.

     

     

    Re-Start iPhoto. Does that help?
