I have noticed that over the years my iPhoto Library is some what corruted and a rebuild and other suggestions donnot help. I still have photos in the Library that don't show up in iPhoto.

 

I was thinking if there is a way to extract/export all photos from the Library and manually rebuild it. But is there a way or any app that can searc, find and export all the original photos to a folder where I can start sorting?

    What suggestions have you actually tried?

     

    What version of iPhoto do you have?

    You can launch iPhoto and export the photos, you can rebuild or extract using iPhoto Library Manager or you can right click on the iPhoto library, show package contents and copy the masters folder to get your originals

    Well. If the photos are not in iPhoto then you obviously can not extract them

     

    For what is there

     

     

    1  You can launch iPhoto and export the photos,

     

    2  you can rebuild or extract using iPhoto Library Manager or

     

    3  you can right click on the iPhoto library, show package contents and copy the masters folder to get your originals. Copying the masters folder obviously gets all of the subfolders in it
