So I have been having this problem for about 6 months. The 1st time this happened, I deleted iphoto, re-downloaded it and I don't remember if that worked. Then my boyfriend fixed it by holding down the option button and creating a new library. which, again, its doing the crashing and wont open at all. The 1st time I had about 56G of photos. now, im not even sure how many I had, being that its only been 6 months that I've been importing photos. Its very frustrating and I'm starting to think that iphoto is pointless. Is there a way to fix this, or do I have to start again, from scratch and create a new folder? Which again, will make me start getting my hopes up to only crash again in 4-6 months. Or is there another program that will hold your photos and let you edit them? =( Its really really frustrating. =(

    I have been getting the same kind of repeated crash. In fact, I can't recall a time in recent history when I quit iPhoto "expectedly". Usually it happens when I'm away from my computer, having left iPhoto open. I return to find the crash report open, almost always with a similar crash log to yours.

    I have a MacBook Core 2 Duo running the latest updates to Lion and iPhoto. And again, the crashes typically occur when I am away from the computer having left iPhoto running in the background.
