    Hello - I'm having a bit of trouble with iphoto (on OSX tiger)
    Yesterday it brought up some message for me to update thumbnails or similar - which I did (and have done before).

    But when i came back to the computer, iphoto looked like this...
    ...and has one since.

    If i look in the actual library folder, everything is still there - but none of it shows up in the actual application.

    I wouldnt mind so much, but I've been keeping it organised into nice date folders and I'd rather not do all that again :/

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Quit iPhoto, hold down the option key when launching iPhoto, and re-select the library in the Pictures folder. If that does not bring your images back, consider the automatic and manual rebuild options outlined in this article. Manual rebuild will be your last recourse in this case because you will have to re-set up the albums again and whatever print or slideshow projects you set up will not be preserved.
