I still can't restore my iphoto library after I had Apple install a new hard drive. I have always used Time Machine to back up everything with an exrternal hard drive.
what version of iPhoto?
Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your iPhoto library
I have iPhoto 11 version 9.4.2. I tried those options and it still did not work. I depressed the Command and Option keys and opened up iPhoto.
