    OMG Yokim thatnk you, thank you, thank you. Deleting that file resolved the problem! sorry I sounded like a little teenage girl there, but happy I didn't loose my pictures.

    I tried deleting the iphoto.plist and it worked however it also caused a new issue where iphoto couldn't find the photos I've taken over the last few years . I don't know if I did something wrong or if today is just my unlucky day but remember not to remove the deleted file from your trashcan till you open iphoto and check and make sure everthing is ok.

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

    Sorry to hear that, my photos are ok. I can see all of the ones I had before.

    Same problem. Same solution. Not sure why you even posted.

    I for one don't expect Apple to notify me of a brand new iPhoto update that supposedly fixes "a problem that could cause iPhoto to suddenly quit", then to install said update, and then have to go searching the internet for more solutions to the same darn problem.  In my customer service world, fixing a bug means fixing it....

     

    If I wanted all this crap, I'd have a Windows machine ;-)

     

    I deleted the darn hidden plist file and am now crossing my fingers.

    Well if you do have the same problem then that will fix it. Not sure why you have now posted twice but have nit yet tried the solution. Seems like the first thing to do us solve the problem. And RANTs have no place here. They accomplish nothing and get in the way of people wh actually want to solve their problem

    Who appointed you "nanny"?  Sorry if it offends you, but folks sometimes voice legitimate frustrations with Apple products here.

    After updating using AppStore iPhoto was crashing on startup every time for me.

     

    Tried deleting plists repairing library etc with no luck. What finally worked was rebuilding the dynamic link shared cache as discussed in this thread.

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4138647?start=0&tstart=0

     

    Launch the Terminal application.

    Inside the Terminal, run sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force

    When prompted, enter your password.

    After the command completes (in about a minute), restart the computer.

     

    Thanks to Mark Mentovi and SuperDuperUser!!!!

    Thank you Yokim and Trfnz - both of your solutions helped resolve my issue. My iPhoto (after the latest upgrade) started crashing everytime I tried to "Import to Library". Deleting the .plist resolved the problem only once for Importing. Repeating the same command again (Import to library) crashed the iPhoto again. Using Trfnz's solution has resolved the issue quite permanently (till now!!) Thanks again.
