After upgrading to iPhoto 11(9.2.3) I find that when I try to Print the application quits.  I have tried installing the upgrade again but without result.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Have you tried printing from other applications?

     

    You might try deleting and re-adding the printer.

    Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts or Users & Groups on 10.7)  and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

    There's nothing to be gained by reinstalling. If iPhoto works in your wife's account then the app is fine - it's the same app used in both accounts. Now we have to look at things particular to your accont.

     

    As a Test:

     

     

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

     

     

    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

    Option 1

    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.

     

    If that fails:

     

    Option 2

    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.

     

    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .
