    I can no longer drag more than one photo at a time in iPhoto, be it to an Album or into Finder. One piccie is fine, two or more is a no no. It's the same in another account. Trashed plists, restarted but no change. Anyone come across this?

    iPhoto09(8.1.2), 10.6.8

    I also can not cut & paste several photos at once. Is this normal?

    Odd I just copied about 13 pictures off one of my external HD's into iPhoto and it had no issues.

    Well, I mean from within iPhoto, from this event to that event for example. Importing is fine.

    Likewise. It's a real pain moving photos to Albums one at a time.

    Likewise. Being Mac, it should let you drag & drop but the problem is there's no way to drag photos from one event to another so my work around is split event then drag & drop. It's a pain.

    In my case it used to. This is just a recent happening.

    Got to the stage where I've re-installed iPhoto, but still have the same problem. I've found a workround by selecting the photos I want, copying them and then pasting into the required album.

    Would be nice to get it working properly though.

    This is not normal. Have you tried the apple.com support Forums? https://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa

    In ignorance what ai will say here is it's the best investment you will make (especially if you also own an iPhone) to invest in the latest version of iPhoto. The improvement is amazing from previous versions...

    And will solve your problem for sure

    Yes, and worked through stuff upto the Re-Install iPhoto option(see above).

    Seen too much bad news about iPhoto11 to do that, plus it doesn't do anything that I really need, so why pay for something that I don't need.
