Hi everyone. I am absolutely new to Apple Computers, but not computer illiterate. I am brand new to this forum also. Here's my dilemna. I bought a new MacBook Pro in August '09 and was just in awe of it. I wish I would have been able to get one sooner! It was worth the wait....that was.....UNTIL my iPhoto crashed , and much to my horror took my whole life with it. Now, I did find my pics somehow, thank gosh, in something called "Memeo Backups?. I also do regular backups....well, every 2 weeks. Now, if I do a spotlight search of iPhoto, I can find different things about it but don't know what to do. Can anyone PLEASE tell me how I can get rid of anything I need to, and then IF I am able to somehow re-install it and have it work right again? I cannot tell you how thankful I would be for that. I put SO MUCH WORK in to iPhoto, rearranging things, doing the face recognition, etc., and to think I wasted that time just to have it CRASH on me gets me so angry and upset at the same time. So, any help that anyone might be able to give me, I would be so so thankful. I saved up for so long to be able to get this laptop, and I DO love it, but am not happy with iPhoto taking a dump on me. I really didn't expect anything like that to happen to such a new computer. Thank you in advance, and have a wonderful day. Trish ADDENDUM: I do regular backups on a separate hard drive using Time Machine. I'm sorry, I should have included that in the beginning. Does that by any chance make anything easier for me? Thank you so so much, I am really appreciative!
