    When I open iPhoto it shows thumbnails of all of my photos, just like it should. I have ~950 photos. Maybe one hundred or so (it seems to be just 2 rolls) do not display when I double click them. I open them up and I get a square with an exclemation point in the middle. I have gone to these photos in finder and opened them with preview and they open fine. I don't know why iPhoto doesn't want to open them. Has anyone else ever seen this?

    Did you move the originals from where iPhoto stored them?

    No I haven't moved them. I even tried deleting them from iPhoto and re-importing them, but iPhoto tells me that they're already in the collection.

    Did you rebuild the database as I suggested?

    I'm not at home right now. I get off in about 10 minutes so I'll try it when I get there.

    Stupid me. I fixed the problem. A little while back I had been messing around with Automator and I renamed some pictures in a few folders. I deleted them out of iPhoto, moved the folder out of the iPhoto library and imported them and everything is fine. Thanks for the help.
