    What version of iPhoto is it? Did this occur suddenly? Did you install any software just prior to this happening? :)

    Okay, well find a file named com.apple.iPhoto.plist and drag it to the Desktop. This will reset all your iPhoto preferences to their default but it may help. The good news is that if it doesn't you can simply put the file back where you found it. Do this while iPhoto is closed.

    If that doesn't work, then try rebuilding the library. :)
