IPhoto hanging and crashing
AdvertisementEver since I updated to iPhoto 08 this morning practically nothing works as it's supposed to. When I start iPhoto, the normal iPhoto window comes up showing my photos. I can scroll through them and even zoom around but as soon as I click anything iPhoto starts to act up. Editing photos simply does not do anything as iPhoto will either hang or do nothing. When I click events in the source pane my photos disappear only showing a grey background and iPhoto hangs. If I use expose at that time certain UI widgets will disappear. As soon as I click the close button iPhoto will either quit without saying anything or crash with the normal "application unexpectedly quit"-message.
I really don't understand what the problem is....
Already updated to 7.0.1, repaired permissions, rebooted, reinstalled it, created a new library (while even no photos in a library will show the same symptoms) and deleted caches and the preferences.

Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Try the following:download and run BatChmod on the iPhoto Library folder with the settings shown here, putting your administrator login name, long or short, in the owner and group sections. You can either type in the path to the folder or just drag the folder into that field. See if this will help.
Do you Twango?
TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
