Using Iphoto 11 and Lion OS.  I have made many imovies with still pics in the past.  I just started a new project.  Clicked on camera icon to upload photos.  Chose Iphoto icon. My iphoto library does not appear.  What is going on?

    iMovie and iPhoto - uses libraries. One can select in iPhoto to use another one (Library) and then iMovie can not see photos in the old one - they are in sort of relation to each others.


    • In iPhoto - select to use the other (old) Library

    • Close iPhoto

    • Now first let iMovie start up

    • and let it create all thumbnail photos


    And now You see the ones in the old iPhoto Library


    Yes this is confusing




    iPhoto - Library got corrupted (not so rare situation)


    Medicine - YOU NEED - lot's of time (several hours - can not be Paused safely), Computer running on Power/Mains - not only battery !


    • Close all programs

    • Start iPhoto - BUT NOW KEEP [ alt + cmd ] keys down during up-start

    • Select all options

    • Do something else for a long long time

    • When done - Close iPhoto

    • Open iMovie

    • and let it create all thumbnail photos
