What else do I need to tell you. My iphoto will not open.
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
What really happens when you open iPhoto ? Are you getting any error messages ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No error. The icon won't even bounce up and down like normal when it's opening. Iphoto does appear at the top of my screen as if it were open.
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
Seems like it can't load the library. We can try to rebuild your iPhoto Library and see if that works or not..

Rebuild iPhoto Library
  1. Quit iPhoto if it is open.
  2. Hold down the Command and Option keys on the keyboard.
  3. Open iPhoto.
  4. Keep the keys held down until you are prompted to rebuild the library.
  5. A dialog will appear with rebuild options. Select all the options/checkboxes
  6. Click Rebuild to begin the rebuild process. This may take a few minutes to complete.

If that didn't worked then rebuild your iPhoto Library with this application, iPhoto Library Manager (just try the trial version) : http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/

Please follow the instructions in here to rebuild your iPhoto Library with iPhoto Library Manager : http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/Help/rebuilding%20a%20corrupted%20iphoto%20library.html

Let me know if that didn't worked..

Best Regards,

Thanks so much, I will try this. One question, I don't have my photos backed up will I lose them If I rebuild?
Expert:  Ashik replied 5 years ago.
You're welcome ! No, you won't lose the photos. Rebuilding will just fix the Library problems.
