Thumbnails dont match slideshow photos.

When I make a new slideshow (manually) the thumbnails shown at the botttom are quite different from the photos showing in the slideshow.  -Some are completely different -some have some of the same photos as the slideshow and some different ones -but the thumbnails still don't match the photo being displayed.How do I fix this up?

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.

  • Why are my thumbnails not matching photos?

    Why are my thumbnails not matching the photos in my smart album?

    I am rebuilding my thumbnails--a slow process I am learning.  We'll see how that does.  I believe I have the latest version of both iPhoto and OS.  What happens is that the thumbnail does not match the photo.  The photo in the thumbnail is in the same series, but not the same.  Many of the thumbnails are the same photo from the series.  I'll report back on the success of the thumbnail rebuilding process.

  • Thumbnails not matching photos

    I was organizing photos in iPhoto '11 and noticed some thumbnails do not match their photos. Does anyone know how this could have happened or how to fix it?

    Database corruption
    Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your thumbnails - this may take a few attempts

  • Thumbnails don't match my photos

    I've noticed a number of photos in iphoto (latest version) all suddenly have the same thumbnail of a particular photo (in some case 30 or 40 photos have the same thumbnail). When I click on the thumbnail I see the real photo but when I use the photo to try to print a photobook the corrupted photo appears.
    Does anyone know how I can reset my iphoto folder to rebuild the thumnails from the photos or is this a known bug.
    Thanks a lot

    Hey Tony,
    Follow this article to rebuild your iPhoto Library:
    -- Be sure you have a backup of your library before you rebuild (as the article indicates)
    -- I would first choose the check box for Examine and repair permissions and then once that is complete go back and do the options for thumbnails.
    Hope that helps.

  • Can't slideshow photos on mass memory N97

    I have copied many photos to the mass memory (N97) hoping I can view them whenever I need. I have been struggling but so far couldn't figure out how to slideshow photos stored on the Mass memory?
    Since the phone memory is pretty limited, I avoid copying or storing photos there and use the folder Images on mass memory instead.  I am not even able to use screen slide to flip through the photos and of course no thumbnail so I have to manually open and close each photo!!!
    Any suggestions will be most welcome and appreciated.

    Are you viewing them through the gallery or the file manager? File manager will not allow you to swipe or play slideshow. You do that in the Picture Gallery or the Nokia PhotoBrowser application.

  • Photoshop editing in Iphoto6 = thumbnails dont update!

    Hi, Ive been trying different things for my editing so that Iphoto wont loose its way... I did like many other users, drag the phoot out-edit-put it back in and then in full size have a grey screen with exclamation point!!! So I stop doing it that way... I deceided to edit my photos with Photoshop by opening them direcly with the photoshop browser, in the originals file, which seemed like a good idea except that the thumbnails dont automatically update to the new modified picture . But if I open the picture full size in Iphoto it shows the new photo with the modifications...but when I go back to the thumbnail size it shows the old picture instead...
    Can anyone help me with this issue...I tried rebuilding but wont help.
    If I new exaclly the difference between the different files like data-original and the vs library.iphoto vs library.cache vs vs library6.iphoto.....
    Should I be editing my photos through another file instead of original...Does not seem logic...
    Please help or I just might stop using Iphoto!!! To much wasted time....

    To continue on with the other question of files in the iPhoto Library folder in the not even concern yourself with them.Ttampering with any of them will cause iPhoto problems opening the library.
    Two Apple kbs for you to read
    Don't tamper with files in the iPhoto library folder
    About the iPhoto Library folder
    If you want to know what the folders are for, take a look at the screenshot
    iPhoto 6 Library folder in the Finder
    As you can see the structure is now related to rolls. Rolls are created for each folder you import and each import session from a camera.
    It is very easy to change the names of film rolls within iPhoto to make them easier to find images within. Open the info panel in iPhoto by clicking on the "i" icon. Once it is opened, click on the roll title in the viewing window.
    Click on the word "title" in the info pane and type in your new title. I like to use a date and text format such as 12/25/05 Christmas at Mom's, 1/05/06 my birthday, etc. Once the roll names are changed within iPhoto, they are also changed within the Finder, making it easy to locate an image.
    When importing from a camera, make sure you name the roll with a date and text before the import.
    Depending on how many photos you have edited that have not had the thumbnails updated you can...
    -drag the photos out of the iPhoto library viewing window to the desktop
    -delete the photos from within iPhoto and empty iPhoto's trash
    -drag the photo on the desktop back into iPhoto's viewing window. it will import and create the new thumbnail.
    If you have a lot of photos you can do it this way...
    Close iPhoto
    Drag the Data folder and the three thumbnails files as shown in the next screenshot to the desktop.
    Hold down the Command and Option keys while launching iPhoto. Keep them held down until you get the rebuild screen. Choose all the thumbnail rebuild options. Let iPhoto do it's thing and hopefully you will get all your thumbnails back.

  • View just thumbnails of a slideshow

    My wife is putting together a 240-image slideshow of our wedding in iPhoto, and having the single row of thumbnails with a big image below is really difficult to arrange the slides. I've been searching, but I can't find a way to just view the thumbnails (multiple rows), rather than the big image as well.
    Is that possible?

    No, it's not possible to see more than one row of thumbnails in the slideshow mode. The only way to get more slides in the tray would be to reduce the height of the tray so that more photos can be fit to the window width.
    Happy Holidays
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Ipad contacts dont match picture

    My ipad pictures dont match my contacts?  I backup data on the cloud.  Has anyone encountered this problem.  I've attempted the troubleshooting aspect to no avail from Apple.  My iphone5 matches contacts and photos and is also backed up on the cloud.
    Thank you

    You have to have the groups set up on your computer in before you sync your Contacts. Your post makes it sound like you have done that already. The next step is to make sure that you are syncing to iTunes correctly.
    Connect your iPad to your computer and launch iTunes. Make sure that the device is being recognized - look for your iPad name in the left side. Then click on the info tab at the top of iTunes. Look down the list and make sure that you have the appropriate blocks checked for syncing contacts. Make sure you have Sync Address Book Contacts checked.
    If you only have one group of contacts to sync, then you will probably not get the groups icon in contacts. For example, I have three groups in my contact list and the red tap shows up in the app. All contacts, - From my Mac - and - Exchange, from my MS exchange email account.
    BTW I believe that generally speaking, typing in a discussion site like this in all capital letters indicates anger or shouting. We are a friendly group, no need to shout or be mad at us! (yet)

  • Scrolling thumbnails in Muse Slideshow?

    Is it possible to have only one row of thumbnails at the bottom of a slideshow that would scroll accross as the slideshow progresses?

    The thumbnails in Muse slideshows and compositions currently are only static and cannot be set to automatically scroll with the progression of images.
    This is currently a feature that is still being looked into and there are other posts regarding this. If you search for existing posts on a topic ( and add onto that, it increases the chances of a request getting priority rather than creating a new thread.

  • Slideshow photo size in "My Album" slideshow

    I recently created several albums in "My Albums" (love the look!), but I am puzzled at how small the photos are when I view them as a slideshow. They are approx. 1 3/4" x 1 1/2", compared to the slideshow in "My Gallery" where the photos about fill the screen. (And there those awful annoying shadows below each photo making my subjects looking like they are deformed with extra legs etc). Is there something that I am doing wrong? Did I miss something when I was setting up the pages/albums to make the slideshow photos different sizes? Right now the photos that appear in the album covers are even larger than those in the slideshow.

    Hi OT,
    Thank you for your input. Before I read your reply last night, I went through some of your old postings and did find a couple resolutions. You replied to a post from snipa (Norway), Aug. 22, 08, subject: "Comments on web sits (sic) photo" - then Mermaid 1632 asked a similar question - she wrote Oct 14th. You replied telling Snipa and mermaid on how to add the comment button to a website. In that reply you showed a picture of the photo/slideshow inspector options. So I went to that setting in my iWeb And there I found that the setting for large photo in slideshow was not ticked. It also gave me an option to unclick that awful shadow option. So I went to one of my pages and did the clicking and unclicking. I thought that would solve my problem. The shadow option worked fine, but the option for large photo, even though it did enlarge the photo somewhat, it still was not the full screen size that it used to be. It is now approx. 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 - whereas last night when I wrote it was only 2 1/2 x 1 3/4.
    You asked about my browser - I use Safari 3.2.1, and Firefox 3.0.5. I cleared the cache in both - that did not make a difference. I have a very old version of IE - so that would not even load the Gallery pages, so no point in even considering that browser. I had a friend with a PC and IE to check and she said that the photos in slideshow (that I had not changed) were still very small.
    Let's say that I settle for the 4 x 3 inch photos in slideshow it looks like that I am going to have to edit each photo page and make those changes one at a time. What do you think? Is there any way I can make the same changes on all the photo pages in one editing, rather than doing one at a time?
    I appreciate your help. That old posting gave me two great suggestions!

  • How do I get slideshow photos right-side-up?

    I rotate individual photos to get them right-side-up; but when I start a slideshow, the photos revert to appearing sideways. Can someone please help me figure out how to get the slideshow photos right-side-up? Thanks very much.

    If you perform a backup to icloud, the camera roll photos are included (if that setting was turned on) but not any other photos.  (Go to Settings>icloud>Storage&Backup>Manage Storage, tap your device name then be sure that camera roll is turned on in Backup Options.
    Users should always sync photos to a computer to archiving.  icloud is not totally reliable, depending on how the user has the settings.
    If you are converned about your laptop breaking down, remember that performing regular backups is as important as carrying a spare tire in your car.

  • Thumbnails missing on iPhone4 "Photos" app (blank white squares)

    After upgrading to the iphone4, I restored from my most recent 3G back up, but most (not all) of the thumbnails in the photo library of the Photos app are just blank white squares
    When you click on the white square a picture shows up, but this makes browsing almost impossible.
    I tried restoring, and unselecting and reselecting in itunes and cannot get a majority of the thumbnails to show. the photos that do not show are random.

    If this was happing on your 3G and you upgraded your phone by restoring it from the backup of your 3G, it is also possible that your new phone may have inherited this problem from your old one (i.e., the problem may have been contained in the backup you restored from).  I'm not sure what else to suggest you try on your computer and I'm not sure that's the problem.  It may very well be something corrupt on your phone.  The basic troubleshooting steps (in escalating order) are Reset, Restore, Restore as New.  To reset your phone hold the on/off and home buttons until you see the Apple logo (ignoring the off slider that appears first), and release.  To restore your phone follow this guide:, backing up your phone at step 6, and restoring from that backup at the end of the process, followed by syncing with iTunes.  If that fails you will have to save as much of your data as possible, and restore it as new by following this process again but at the end choosing to set it up as a new iPhone.  If the problem persists after restoring as new you probably have a hardware problem and will have to have Apple take a look at it.

  • Grey Thumbnails of some offline photos

    My configuration
    Using LR 3.2
    Windows 7 64bit
    8 gigs ram
    I have a catalog of over 200,000 photos spread over one local and 4 external disks.
    Intended result
    I need to be able to view all thumbnails for all offline photos
    When I am scrolling through the thumbnails on the offline disks, randomly some of the thumbnails are grey. I can spend HOURS rendering previews while the disks online but when they are off line I have randomly grey thumbnails again.
    Steps taken to try and fix the problem
    imported ALL photos to a new catalog - issue happens with new catalog
    Render standard preview of all photos - issue still happens
    Render full preview of all photos on one external drive - when drive is offline issue still remains

  • Slideshow Photos Displaying Too Small?

    I have just created my third site in iWeb and did it identically to my first two. They are very basic and each has a photo page where you can see photos, enlarge them and view a slideshow. Problem is that this third site is bringing up the enlarged photos and slideshow photos much smaller than the other two sites. As stated I did everything the exact same. Any ideas on why my third site is not behaving correctly.
    Here are the three sites. #3 is the issue. Thanks for any help!

    I think iPhoto is storing or making a 360*240 Thumnail or iPod pic to go with the original & that's what is getting uploaded.
    I don't know how it works, but if you could get the big pic say in another APP & save it, send that, I think it would work, like say GraphicConverter...

  • Does anyone elses iphoto thumbnails show the wrong photos in album ?

    This is a relatively new problem i am having.... when i open an album and the zoom is over c.20% or you change the zoom the thumbnails show the wrong photo. when you open to edit, the correct photo opens. This is veeeerrrry annoying. can anyone shed any light on this ?

    Hi slipstream1,
    I don't know why that started happening for you.
    Try this:
    Close iPhoto
    Navigate to where you have the iPhoto Library on your hard drive
    Drag the three thumbnail files found loose in the root of the Library folder to the desktop
    Hold down the Command and Option keys while launching iPhoto until you get the rebuild window
    Choose the options to rebuild the thumbnails
    Hopefully this will fix it for you.
