    After doing a clean install of Snow Leopard and copying iPhoto to the fresh hard drive and trying to open it, I get this error.

    iPhoto quit unexpectedly
    Click Reopen to open the application again. Click Report to see more detailed information and send a report to Apple.

    Inside the error report:

    Dyld Error Message:
    Library not loaded: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iLifeSlideshow.framework/Versions/A/iLifeSlideshow
    Referenced from: /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/MacOS/iPhoto
    Reason: image not found

    I did the same thing and have exactly the same problem...

    iPhoto quits instantly upon clicking and I cannot get it to open again. I think it may be because a lot if the files are still on the hard drive, but I don't know where. :apple:


    I fixed this by entering the backup, going to '/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iLifeSlideshow.framework/Versions/A/iLifeSlideshow'

    and restoring the folder 'iLifeSlideshow.framework'
    Works fine now :)

    If you don't have a backup, you can also use the DVD image if you have one. Mount the image and right-click/control-click/two finger-click on the installer and choose "Show Package Contents." Open "Contents" and then "Installers." Inside you'll see all the installers including iLifeSlideshow. Install it, and all is good.

    I can't find my original discs, and it's not in any of my backups (Not even from six months ago. I wonder how iPhoto ever worked). Can you upload the 'iLifeSlideshow.framework' folder somewhere? Thanks so much in advance! - Christoph

    EDIT: Neverming. My dad had them with his PC crap. He's in for a big talking-to.
