I cannot open iPhoto on my MacBook, missing python framework. Will allow remote access using TeamViewer for help.


It looks like your version of iPhoto may not be compatible with OSX 10.9.5.

Can you check which version of iPhoto you have installed... go to Applications, select the iPhoto icon, press the "command" and "i" key at the same time, and see what it says under 'version'...

I would suggest launching the App Store application and checking for any updates, especially anything to do with iPhoto.

If you've updated iPhoto but the library is an older version, then this may help:

How do i download from iPhoto to a usb stick


hi Jo, if the size, quality, and the type of pic suits your needs do what kevin said, just copy, and paste it, but if the pic has to be altered to be compatible with the end use, do this
While in iPhoto bring up the pic you want to transfer, click on file (in the bar at the top of the screen) choose "export", it will give you the option to change size, type, name, quality, etc..
when your done click on the export icon, and if your flash drive is plugged in it will come up as an option ;-)

Does my Maxtor back up my iphotos?


Run a time machine backup. Then the easiest way would be to find a photo that you are willing to delete in iPhoto.

Jot down the name of the photo file, delete it. Then empty the trash.

Then go into time machine, try to search for that file, when you locate it, restore it. If you can then there is probably a good chance that you time machine backup is good.

To be on the safe side why not create a manual backup.

You'll find the iPhoto Library at:


/Users/username/Pictures

"username" will be your name that appears when you login to the computer.

  1. To get there, double-click the icon for your hard drive to open it, then double-click the Users folder. Double-click your Home folder, which is identified by a house icon and your username, and then double-click the Pictures folder to open it.
        1. Inside the Pictures folder you'll see a file called iPhoto Library. Copy the iPhoto Library file to a location other than your hard drive, such as your Maxtor external hard drive.

Everytime a friend on FB post any kind of pictures, these pictures immediately go to my "Photo's" section. How can I remove them????


It's possible that your friend at one time or another logged into their facebook account via your iPhoto application;

Open iPhoto, go to the Preferences (under the iPhoto menu at the top of the screen) and click the accounts icon to see if there are any associated facebook accounts.

If so, disable them!

My iphoto icon on deck has a ciricle with a line though it which means no. I can not open iphoto. it states it could be damaged .


Hi there, there is a easy fix to this problem. What you are first wanting to do is to make a backup of your iPhoto library. The default place is User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library. What you are going to want to do is right click the iPhoto library and select duplicate. Then just click and drag that new iPhoto library you just made to the desktop. Now what you want to do is to install iLife again. Just insert the iLife disk and follow the on screen instructions. Once that is done you should be able to open iPhoto again. If for some reason when you open iPhoto and your photos are not there, then close iPhoto and you want to place the new iPhoto Library that we put on the desktop into U ser(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ Now drop the iPhoto Library and make sure that it is called iPhoto Library and not iPhoto Library Duplicate, if that is the case then right click the file name and click get info, then just rename it iPhoto Library. Now you are done, open iPhoto and you should have all your photos again.
If for some reason this still does not work, then once again close iPhoto, this time we are going to open it agin but while we open it we are going to hold the option key down too. A menu should pop-up asking you what library you would like to use, all you want to do is select the one that says is located in User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library.

I hope this helps you, Justin

Why won't the green light for my camera go off. its always on and it wont let me use skype or photobooth!!


You need to check and see if any other application are using the isight. Go toApplications > Utilities > Activity Monitor
at the right there is a drop down box select "All Processes" search for any process that might be using the isight camera. select the process and click the red stop sign to "quit processe"
If that doesn't work try to restart the computer.
If the issue still persist go to Apple Menu (Apple icon, top left) > System Preferences > Accounts select the account that you are login at click the Login Items tab here is all the applications that start automatically when you login to this account. select the application that might be giving you the problem (ie skype) click the minus icon at the bottom to remove it.

My iphoto got problem in opening. i cant open it. the " iphoto just quit unexpectedly" window kept popping out whenever i tried clicking Reopen.


You could try the application iphoto library manager which can be found at http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ this can allow you to rebuild corrupted iphoto libraries. I am not sure if the free version has this facility but the full version costs about $20 and is well worth it to keep your iphoto up to scratch. Hope this helps.
