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. .

  • From some reason (i'm not sure why..) my whole iphoto library got deleted. I restored the whole library from my backup. The photos are blank but steel have the photo info. (date, res., size etc.) Do you know what's the prob.? why can't i see my pics.

    It's says that file does not exist. How come? And why does it still show the image info.?
    Where can i find those files (i have a daily backup)
    The original image files are missing form your iPhoto library or iPhoto cannot find them, because the link to the originals has been broken. The image info is stored in the internal libraries, independent of the original files. That is, why you are still seeing them.
    I restored the whole library from my backup.
    Try restoring from an older backup, from before you first noticed the problem. 
    How large is the library, that you restored? Is the file size large enough to hold all your photos, or has the size been reduced?  If the library is still large, the photos may still be inside, even if iPhoto cannot find them.
    It's says that file does not exist. How come?
    What happened, before your iPhoto library got deleted? Which applications have you been running, or which new software have installed or upgraded?  Have you moved the library to a different disk or tried to use it from different user account or access it over the network?

  • I have over 50 gigs of music on iTunes; can I store only some on my laptop and the rest on a backup HDD?

    I have over 50 gigs of music on iTunes; can I store only some on my laptop and the rest on a backup HDD?

    Just copy the music from one computer to another over your network or via a USB flash drive.
    If you are in the US, have the latest version of iTunes (10.3) and the media was purchased via the iTunes store, you can redownload all the content via iTunes.

  • How does this happen: The picture of recent apps you get when double clicking the home button showed in Settings-Wifi that I had been connected to a network I have not been near for two months. Its not a recent "image" of Settings-Wifi. Can anyone explain

    Greetings,
    I've never seen this issue, and I handle many iPads, of all versions. WiFi issues are generally local to the WiFi router - they are not all of the same quality, range, immunity to interference, etc. You have distance, building construction, and the biggie - interference.
    At home, I use Apple routers, and have no issues with any of my WiFi enabled devices, computers, mobile devices, etc - even the lowly PeeCees. I have locations where I have Juniper Networks, as well as Aruba, and a few Netgears - all of them work as they should.
    The cheaper routers, Linksys, D-Link, Seimens home units, and many other no name devices have caused issues of various kinds, and even connectivity.
    I have no idea what Starbucks uses, but I always have a good connection, and I go there nearly every morning and get some work done, as well as play.
    You could try changing channels, 2.4 to 5 Gigs, changing locations of the router. I have had to do all of these at one time or another over the many years that I have been a Network Engineer.
    Good Luck - Cheers,
    M.

  • Share Media Browser - only shows Tiny, or Mobile size, the rest are grayed

    I'm helping a teacher with a movie in iMovie 09. It has all the latest patches. When I tried to use Share>Media Browser - only shows Tiny, or Mobile size, the rest of the larger sizes are grayed out.
    Of course, I tried Mobile and it was pixelated when displayed at a larger size.
    I'm not sure why this is. Can anyone help?

    When you say what size is the source video, what do you mean, and how would I check that size?
    I've just encoded the video in iMovie, into iTunes as size "mobile". The resulting file size is 27.8 MB. In iTunes, the info shows the codec as being H.264.

  • Has anyone experience a problem with not being able to add a drumbeat loop to a prerecorded project?  When I open the loop browser, there are only a few options available.  The rest are greyed out.  I can only choose individual drum sounds, not full beats

    I have created a project and recorded 2 tracks, one with a guitar and the other vocals.  I would like to add a drum loop, but when I pull up the loop browser, all of the normal selections aren't available.  Some are greyed out, including "Beats".  "All Drums" is available, but when I click on it it pulls up some cymbal sounds only.  I've opened some old recordings in GB to see if this is a consistent issue, but it's not.  Only this one project won't allow me to use drum loops.  Which leads me to believe there is something I have selected or not selected within the project that's not allowing me to see all the loops.  Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks,

  • Mail blocked on imac. Same message keeps appearing multiple times in the Recovered Messages folder but no new email gets through. Fine on ipad. Any help appreciated....

    Haven't received any new emails on imac since 4 Sept (all received fine on ipad) and online gmail account. We sent an oversized message on that date and it keeps appearing continually (literally hundreds of times) in the Recovered Messages folder. I'm assuming this is causing some sort of blockage?? Seem to be able to send mail OK, just not receive (apart from new versions of the 4th September message). Any help gratefully received. Thanks

    Hi,
    Since Outlook running on Windows works well, it seems an issue on the Mac side. I suggest ask Mac for help so that you can get more professional suggestions.

  • Lately when I do an images search only the first page actually shows the images- the rest show blank squares- why, and how do I fix it?

    Over the last week I have noticed more and more that my searches do not show up properly. Today only the first page of images actually show, the rest are blank spaces, but if I click they go to the image site. The rollover does not show either.
    What can cause this, and how do I fix it? I have tried various safe settings but this has no eefect at all.
    Thanks.

  • Quick - Adobe Genius Needed: Footage and stills are black when double clicked - audio but no image ? What the ... ?

    I am doing the training video as this is the first time i have used premiere pro cc or any version of it at all.  I have downloaded the footage and stills as shown in the video but when i go to double click the beach footage it comes up as black - i can hear the waves but the video isn't playing. Same with the stills, they do not show up when double clicked either, they are just black. Dont know what to do.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    Without a screen shot, it's hard to know why the footage/stills are black. Double-clicking the asset opens it in the Source monitor, as opposed to the Project monitor, which could be black if the playhead is not set to a portion of the timeline that shows a movie clip or still. Perhaps your Source monitor is closed or hidden for some reason. After double-clicking the asset, select Window > Source Monitor in the main menu. You should be able to select the specific asset (e.g., Shot_01.mp4) and then see it on the screen. Make sure you also select Window > Workspace > Editing so that your panel layout shows the various panels properly.

  • Can i use an old iPhoto library for referenced images?

    I upgraded to Mavericks today (from Snow Leopard) and want to find a way to continue to view + edit images from my old iPhoto library.
    My version of iPhoto is 8.1.2, and is 390GB.  I have also been using Aperture for some time, and now have 3.5.1.  The Aperture library is 71GB of Managed Images.
    I have several backups of the iPhoto library of external disks.  Can I set things up so that the images can be accessed by Aperture as Referenced Images'?
    And if so, will the iPhoto structure (events, folders etc) be retained?

    It's achieveable, but somewhat of a hack, and the best you'll get is something close to your event structure, but not albums.
    I'd really recommend lêonie's approach above.
    However, if you really want to play...:
    There are two main problems to solve.
    1) The files are inside the iPhoto library bundle which is not selectable from the import panel.
    2) You'll have a combination of master, non-destructive edits, and previews. I no longer have an 8.1 library to check so I can't decribe the structure). You'll need to decide if you want to bring in originals and edits (where available).
    You'll need to have a look around the iPhoto library structure; navigate to it in finder, right-click the library and choose 'Show package contents'.
    Explore this until you are happy you know where the images are stored (orginals and edited copies), these are the images you can access directly.
    To make them accessible for import in Aperture, drag any folders your are interested in (eg: originals, masters, previews, etc) to your finder favourites sidebar. This doesn't move them anywhere, it just gives you shortcuts to those folders that reside inside the iPhoto library bundle.
    In Aperture, use 'Import->Folders as Projects' from the file menu. Here you can specify that the images stay in their original location (imported as referenced) and you can use the shortcut on your finder sidebar (created above) to navigate into the iPhoto library to pick up the images.
    You can try the different options for the stucture of the import ('Folders and Projects' or 'Projects and Albums'). 'Folders and Projects' will probably work best as it will give something approximating your import history which may match your event structure, but the project names will likely not match the event names.
    Once you've got them in Aperture, youll probably need to tidy up the structure, but in Aperture you can move and change projects as much as you want withouth affecting anything in the old iPhoto Library. The things that can impact the iPhoto Library are deleting or relocating any of the masters.
    As I say, it's a bit of a hack, and in the long run you will probably be better off by just importing the library and relocating the masters. This will keep your event and album structure and be much cleaner, but it will give you an additional copy of the images, which I suspect is what you are trying to avoid.
    Also, if you get future problems with your images, you'll have to explain all the above or people may have trouble helping you!

  • How to explain.  OK 1st all photos are visible in my iPhoto library; however, some are stored on hard drive and some are stored on external.  All can be viewed in itunes, but none on the external will sync to my iPad.  What's up with that.

    How to explain.  OK 1st all photos are visible in my iPhoto library; however, some are stored on hard drive and some are stored on external.  All can be marked or unmarked in itunes, but none of the photos stored on the external drive will sync to my iPad.  Anybody know what's up with that?

    What really cheeses me off here is that Apple isn't allowing users enough customization.  With each update of iTunes (and the OS and iOS) we're forced to give up something that worked well for the way we want to use the app and make do with fewer (and lamer) options.  If Apple keeps this up, they're going to start losing customers fast.  I mean if this isn't fixed soon, I'm pretty sure I'm going to give up on iTunes, and then I'll probably go ahead and get a Galaxy when I need to replace my iPhone.
    What I don't understand about how they won't let users delete the list of available podcasts now is why?  How is this making it a better program?  I can understand that not all users are capable enough to right-click on a feed and select "Show all available episodes", so I can see why they want the complete list to be the default (and, surprise, it already was).  But to not give users the option to delete that list?  It's inconsiderate because it makes navigating feeds with a large back catalogue really frustrating.  I'm flabbergasted that no one at Apple considered all the podcast feeds that keep hundreds of episodes available when they removed this feature.  It smacks of rank incompetence.
    What improvement were they trying to make here anyway?  There was nothing wrong to my mind about how podcasts were managed in previous versions.  Whatever improvement they were trying to make here, they should have realized that many users would at least want the option to keep things the way they were.
    And reverting to a previous version is no solution.  I can't sync my iPhone with the new iOS without this update, and (while I do have some issues--specifically how you can't play podcasts in the Music app anymore) I do like the new iOS.

  • I just backed up my photos by copying my iPhoto Library onto an external drive. Now the Library on my MacBook won't open. I can only open the photos if the external is plugged in. How can I resolve this issue?

    I just backed up my photos by copying my iPhoto Library onto an external drive. Now the Library on my MacBook won't open. I can only open the photos if the external is plugged in. How can I resolve this issue?

    Exactly what did you do?
    The correct steps are
    Moving the iPhoto library is safe and simple - quit iPhoto and drag the iPhoto library intact as a single entity to the external drive - depress the option key and launch iPhoto using the "select library" option to point to the new location on the external drive - fully test it and then trash the old library on the internal drive (test one more time prior to emptying the trash)
    And be sure that the External drive is formatted Mac OS extended (journaled) (iPhoto does not work with drives with other formats) and that it is always available prior to launching iPhoto
    And backup soon and often - having your iPhoto library on an external drive is not a backup and if you are using Time Machine you need to check and be sure that TM is backing up your external drive
    My guess is that that you have not switched iphoto to use the external drive yet - opttion launch and select libary

  • Why are some jpg images scrambled when they appear in my screen saver?   The same images look fine in Preview and Finder.  Some images appear scrambled in the screen saver 'preview' window and the actual screen saver. Other jpg images look fine.

    The desktop image is fine, taken from the exact same pool of jpg photos.  However, as soon as the slide show screen saver comes on, the images are scrambled.  What is it about the apple screen saver algorithm that scrambles the pics?

  • Why do only some photos appear in iCloud folder on my PC and not all taken on iPhone appear on iPad either? All settings seem correct and new photos now seem to be appearing on all devices, but not all older or recent photos

    Why do only some photos appear in iCloud folder on my PC and not all taken on iPhone appear on iPad either? All settings seem correct and new photos now seem to be appearing on all devices, but not all older or recent photos, even if taken at same time. All advice greatly appreciated.

    First, to access documents you must use an app designed for that specific Document type. So Pages will not be able to open PDFs. The Documents app by Readdle can handle PDFs though. In the latter case, you'd open the app, click the menu icon at its top left, and click Open to go to your iCloud Drive. With Pages, if you had files outside the main Pages folder, click + then iCloud and navigate to the file's location.
