    When Im using iPhoto and I click a photo and try to export it, nothing happens. It used to work fine. I have restarted both iPhoto and my iBook.

    Importing still works fine.

    Which version of iPhoto are you using? Does the export dialogue box come up? Have you tried rebuilding the library?

    I just rebuilt and still nothing.

    The export dialogue box does not come up. Thanks!

    Okay, to check if it's a preference issue, open a new user account in System Preferences and see if you can export photos form that version of iPhoto. Of course, you'll need to import a few photos beforehand. :)

    Well.. I dont think it is a preferences thing, because I just removed com.apple.iPhoto.plist and it still isnt working.

    Okay, well maybe give the new account a go anyway, just to check if it's something else within your Home folder that's wrecked. :)

    alright, I fixed it.

    I was talking to one of my friends, who had recently been uploading photos onto my computer, to put onto facebook (which is like myspace for anyone who didnt know)

    So he was doing that, and saw that facebook has an iPhoto plugin that lets you upload pictures directly from iPhoto. So he downloaded that... and installed it. Obviously it didnt work, because it is only for iPhoto 5.. and I have 4.

    So I right clicked on iPhoto, saw its contents and removed the plug in Facebook.iPhotoExporter

    Now it works.

    (sorry i was putting off making a new account....... my computer is getting slow these days, and Im nearly out of space on my HD, so i was trying every other option first. But Im sure if I did that, and it worked, mad jew would have known where to look. So thanks :)

    Good find mate! Remember to keep about 8GB of free space available at all times to ensure you don't get any random play form your Mac. :)

    Yeah.. I think I need to transfer some things over to my external. Right now I only have 2.4 gigs free on my iBook.


    So I'll be back in a bit after doing that.

    Thanks!
