I tried to open my iphoto yesterday and received the following message:

"Your phpto library is damaged or unreadable and cannot be opened. Please restore from a backup"


What does this mean and how do I proceed?

Please tell me I haven't lost all of the photos of my little daughter!


I have an imac 8,1  Intel Core 2 Duo - if that helps..?


I am not the keenest with technology and appreciate any help!
