Hello my name is John and I will be assisting you today. I understand technology can be frustrating at times and hopefully together we can come up with a solution to your problem.
I will have to say this seems like a different issue then I have ever seen
Try emptying the iPhoto Trash via the iPhoto menu
Ok. Did that.
you did this before I when I told you to?
I did it before, and I just did it again after you mentioned it.
and if you look in the trash there is nothing there correct?
Trash in Finder is empty. Empty Trash option in iPhoto is greyed out now. No Trash visible within iPhoto - correct.
but yet the problem still remains?
Yes, I even closed the app and reopened to be sure.
that link did not work for some reason
Do you happen to have Apple Care with your computer?
Apple care? no
whats under the recovered folder I see listed on the left
I see a 1 beside it
Yeah - there are two of those recovered Folders. Each has a "Recovered Photos" inside. One has 1 photo, and another has 3 photos in it.
was those in there before?
Can you do another import of something and see if it will get rid of the problem?
I did another import just now to no avail. The photos arrive in my library, and show in the 12 months, but not in last import. It's almost like the Last Import folder is corrupt or missing or?
I can find a solution for if the last 12 months not working
but that does not help us here
I think those have something to do with Aperture. I removed the photos in there and tried to delete those folders and was met with a dialog saying to use Aperture to delete them.
Under iphoto prefs is there anything that you can change that has to do with last import settings?
I checked all prefs. Toggled a few - but none involve Last Import. Only how many months for the "12 Month" can be modified.
some times when you make a prefs change it updates that section of the software.
I relaunched the app - no change. I think I'll need to think about this. Thanks anyway!
Have you tried to use Disk Utility with Iphoto closed and repair permissions?
Yes, on the internal and external volume.
and i know you already rebuilt the library
Let me open this back up and see if another mac specialist can come up with an answer.
Please stand by
Thanks anyway. I've got to go.
Hopefully another expert will have an answer for you.
