My iphoto will not open---just spins! I have tried "option, command" to rebuild. I have tried shutting off computer. I have tried going through Finder to get into iphoto. Almost like a virus or a corrupted iPhoto library or something. Any suggestions?
Hi and Welcome.It is not a Virus. Probably your iPhoto Library is corrupted. Since you already tried normal Rebuilding, this time try to 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.htmlThat application can find and repair the iPhoto Library. Let me know if that didn't work.
It is simpler than you think. Just download the application, open it and then click on File menu and select Rebuild. Then select your iPhoto Library and let it rebuild it. Let me know if you have any trouble doing it...
Okay...but There is a small problem. Your photos will not be organized or will be in albums like in old library. Because we are recovering photos from the corrupted library and we can't recover the albums. It is not mine or your fault, it is common that files get corrupted. So you should backup your iPhoto Library regularly. So if it got corrupted again, you can restore/recover it. Good Luck with it..Let me know if you have any trouble making it work and I will continue working with you.Best Regards
