    Holy cow.

    Almost lost all my pics. I have a time machine so I thought I was OK.

    iPhoto said my library may be corrupt.

    I 1st tried to restore from my reliable time machine backup...NO DICE.

    My library is 12 GB and when I did the restore it was 185 MB.

    I ended up opening iPhoto holding Command-Option and did a DB repair. That worked.

    My scary question is why did the restore not work ?

    This is worrisome.

    Running Mavericks, MBA 2013 13" with Apple latest Time Capsule.

    All my iPhoto Library backups (if I do a Get Info) are no where near the correct size.

    Everyone may want to check theirs.

    iPhoto/Time Machine Bug ?
