Thanks for the reply.
It wouldn't open unless I clicked "upgrade."  The other option was "cancel." The Genius at the Apple Store said I had no choice.  The new stuff looks idfferent but maybe it's just taking a while to go through all my photos.  I can't tell what is going on exactly, but I'm nervous to see the last slideshow there is 2010. 
We are backed up on Carbonite, but the hoops to go through getting specific items back seems daunting to me.

  • I upgraded my iphotos and now all my photos are gone in all my albums.  How do I find them and put them back in? (1800 photos.)  Help.

    I upgraded my iphotos and now all my photos are gone in all my albums. (1800 photos.) How do I find them
    and put them back where they belong?

    What version of iPhoto? Assuming 09 or later
    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .

    Your contacts are helpd on the server, so if you sign out from your iCloud account and sign into another one they will disappear. If you sign back into the original account they will reappear.

  • I have the iPhone 4 and just updated to iOS 6 and all my text messages are gone. Can I get them back?

    I have the iphone 4 and just updated to iOS 6 and all my text messages are gone. Can I get them back?

    Group messaging simply puts all replies in one conversation in Messages.   It doesn't prevent the behavior you experienced.
    My suggestion which would be much easier in my opinion, is rather than do a text, send out an email and use bcc: , which will keep the audience hidden from each recipient.
    Otherwise, if you're determinted to do only texts, the only way is to send your message to one person at a time.   You can of course copy/paste your msg each time which might be helpful.

  • I just updated the new iTunes and now all my playlists are gone!! What the heck?!

    All my playlist are gone from itunes with the new update. If I click on "sync" it asks me to erase all my music and videos... Is there a way to avoid doing this? Thanks.

    Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
    Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping. In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
    See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
    When you get it all working make a backup!
    In the unlikely event that your media has been wiped from your computer see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

  • Updated my iphoto and many of my pictures are gone! what do i do

    Updated my iphoto because an icon appearred telling me to update and now all of my photos are gone.. how do i restore them?

    Before anyone can help, they need information to work with. Basic stuff:
    - What version of iPhoto.
    - What version of the Operating System.
    - Details. What were you doing when the problem arose?
    - Did it ever work properly?
    - Are there error messages?
    - What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.
    Anything else you can think of that might allow someone else to understand your issue.
    With this kind of information somebody can develop a starting point for troubleshooting the issue.
    Posts that consist of "iPhoto doesn't work. Help" or "iPhoto won't print" or "Suddenly I have no photos!!!!!!!!!!" mean that any helper is simply guessing. With information, s/he may be able to get your issue resolved sooner.

  • I just downloaded 4.0.1 and now half my bookmarks are gone including the toolbar bookmarks, and its screwing with my printers & doesn't want to load stuff. What Is WRONG

    How do I go back to the previous version and settings?

    It is best not to open the places.sqlite database file because it is organized in a way that is not easy to comprehend and uses a complicated set of tables.
    You can opt to create a separate profile to inspect and possibly export the bookmarks that are stored in this file.<br />
    If both profiles are open at the same time by using the -no-remote command line switch then you can also move bookmarks via the clipboard.

  • Iphoto '08: ALL OF MY PHOTOS ARE GONE, What can I do?

    I was loading new photos into my iphot 08, then the program stopped working, when i re-opened it, there are not photos in there!!!
    How can I get them back?!?!?!
    THank You!!
    Please help!!

    As always: restoring from your back up is the surefire solution.
    Try these in order - from best option on down...
    1. Do you have an up-to-date back up? If so, try copy the library6.iphoto file from the back up to the iPhoto Library (Right Click -> Show Package Contents) allowing it to overwrite the damaged file.
    2. Download <a href="http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/"><b><u>iPhoto Library Manager</b></u></a> and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.
    3. If neither of these work then you'll need to create and populate a new library.
    To create and populate a new *iPhoto 08* library:
    Note this will give you a working library with the same Events and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, modified versions, books, calendars etc.
    In the iPhoto Preferences -> Events Uncheck the box at 'Imported Items from the Finder'
    Move the iPhoto Library to the desktop
    Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.
    Go into the iPhoto Library (Right Click -> Show Package Contents) on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Event Folders to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.
    When you're sure all is well you can delete the iPhoto Library on your desktop.
    In the future, in addition to your usual back up routine, you might like to make a copy of the library6.iPhoto file whenever you have made changes to the library as protection against database corruption.

  • I updated my 3Gs and most of my songs are gone and I only have 4 apps!

    why did this happen? I need help!

    According to other forums this is simply caused because of a backup problem (this can be any number of things). You can either restore to the backup yourself (if the backup is not corrupted and still available) sync everything back on manually
    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
    Thanks
