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.

SOURCE: lost iphoto back catalog after an import

the back catalog of your images are not gone. Since the pictures you have uploaded form your camera to iPhoto all those files are still there. All you need to do is re-load the images into the library of iPhoto.
1) Start iPhoto, then in the menu goto File / Add to library..
2) Then a file browsing window will open, all you need to do is locate the folder in which u had specified to iPhoto. (Default location for iPhoto is located at MainHD / Users / Username / Pictures / iPhoto Library
3) Once you have located the folder or folders you wish to add to your library or catalog just press import. And all the images should show in the catalog.
4) if you have more pictures saved in another folder, then repeat steps 1 to 3 again. but in step 2 locate the folder or drive you wish to import from.

SOURCE: my iphoto got problem in opening. i cant open it.

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.

SOURCE: my iphoto icon on deck has a ciricle with a line

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

Go to the Apple icon in the Menu Bar; select Force Quit; in the list you will see iPhoto, you'll need to select that then hit force quit. That will only force quit iPhoto and your email should be fine.

SOURCE: when i click iPhoto it gives me a screen with a symbol going around and around and won't show me any photos

Sounds like you iphoto library is either corrupted or is not well, what I would suggest that you download iphoto library manager from http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ there is a free download which may be able to resurrect your library the cost of the full package is $19.95 and it is well worth buying particularly if you have a large iphoto library. Hope this helps.

Photos disappear on iPhoto


Hi Linden McNeilly,


In case if you have lost your photos from your iPhoto library. You can recover them back with the help of a photo recovery software. The one which I use is Yodot Mac Photo recovery software to recover iPhoto photos. So if you have any photo loss from your iPhoto library you can use this software.

Facebook log in problem Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.


Thank you for visiting Fixya forums.

There are several reasons you may be getting this error code. Each will be suggested below:

Firewall

Change your firewall settings in the Security Preference Pane to 'Allow all incoming connections'. Check to make sure you don't have a firewall running that has stopped iPhoto from communicating with Facebook.

Cookies

This error code may be an issue with the cookie that Firefox or Safari uses to store the Exporter's login info. You need to delete the Facebook cookie called "isfbe". In Firefox you can do this by going to your preferences, clicking on "Privacy," then find the Show Cookies button. Find the one whose name contains the term "isfbe". Then click Delete Cookie.

For Safari you also go to preferences, but first click on "Security," then click Show Cookies and find the aforementioned cookie and delete it.

After this, just go back to the Facebook Exporter in iPhoto and login again, this time you will have no connection problem.

iPhoto

iPhoto, a problem lies in a conflict with the latest point update for iPhoto '08, version 7.1.3. Maybe it will work if you reinstall iPhoto, update to 7.1.2, copy the iPhoto application and rename it "iPhoto old," and then run Software Update and bring it up to date to get the bug fixes in the latest update for your main copy of iPhoto.

Note: I don't know if it will change the library format at all with 7.1.3.
The FAQ/support page for the Facebook Exporter for iPhoto is here: <http://www.facebook.com/help.php?page=718>

Login

1. Log out of Facebook through your web browser.
2. Go to Facebook Exporter for iPhoto, click Login.
3. This will open a Facebook login page in your web browser.
4. Log in but do not check "Save my login info..."
5. Go back to iPhoto, hit continue, and export your photos.

Sometimes an error message may still occur while uploading the photos, but retry and eventually it should work.

LittleSnitch

If you have Little Snatch running on your computer it may be blocking iPhoto from access port 80.

For some reason with the Facebook export it doesn't pop up and prompt you to allow access. Allow access in LittleSnitch my Facebook plugin for iPhoto may allow you to start connecting properly.

FULL Reset of Safari
You can remove all history, cache, cookies, etc.

Firefox History
If your browser is Firefox, clear history.

Desktop thinks its an iphoto library


Go into iphoto and set the destination folder somewhere you want the photos and there should also be a preference like in itunes to keep the library clean or together choose that if it doesnt work still pick a new destination and move all your photos to there. You may have to drag and drop the photos back into Iphoto but that should do it.

Can't get pics to my mac computer, won't transfer.


When you get the popup from iPhoto don't click on any iPhoto buttons. Instead, click on command+tab and change to your Finder application (leaving iPhoto open in the background).

1) Create a new folder on your Desktop or in your Pictures folder. This is where you will copy your photo files.

2) Click on File, then New Finder window. Size these finder windows so you can see both of them at the same time. In the second window, go to your computer, and then to the drive that represents the memory card in your camera.

3) Drag and drop to copy the files from the camera's memory card Finder window to the new folder Finder window, dropping the files into the new folder on your computer's hard drive.

4) Use command+tab to change back to iPhoto. Cancel from the import warning window. In iPhoto click on File then Import to Library

5) In the import dialog tell iPhoto to move the photos (not to import them in their current location) so that iPhoto puts the photos in the same place it put your other photos when it imported them directly from the camera.

If you can't do all of these steps, tell me how far you got, and what happened.

Good news and bad news . . .You will probably have to reinstall the OS - that is, unless you have backed up your files on Time Machine or some other back up program. Then all you have to do is ask the back up program to reinstall the missing files. 
But if you haven't backed up, you will lose your Mail accounts and email, but not your photos, as far as I know. But at least you can rebuild your accounts. 
You will find your iPhoto library in the Applications folder. You can find your photos If you have a .Mac (Mobile Me) account, however, you will find your .Mac mail online.

Unable to open backed-up files. Error code 10657


I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.

Iphone photos


opened iphoto and it gives "no items to import" ? if true try this. when iPhoto is open and your phone is connected, open the albumn of pictures you've taken with your iphone on your iphone. iPhoto should immediately recognize the new pictures you had taken and should indicate "x items to import." x being number of photos. An alternative to this can be If you individually delete the previously imported iPhone Camera Roll pictures using the trash can on the bottom right (touching the screen brings it up), iPhoto will then see the new iPhone pictures for importing. I believe this can be done without opening at the time of sync the iPhone Camera Roll picture album as you suggested. Give these a try and let me know.

Try holding down the option plus command (apple) key as you launch iphoto. It will then ask you if you want to rebuild your library. BUT backup any items on an extrenal drive or DVD before doing this
