    I was on Iphoto checking some old vacation photo's from a couple of years ago.
    And like 100 of them are all turned black.

    P.S.: Does anyone of you know a hypercam for Mac, I have Capture Me but I can only film for 10 seconds. The quality doesn't matter, I'm thinking of making a speed-paint movie.

    it's possible that the photos are corrupt, have been moved or renamed through the Finder (not through iPhoto), or possibly just that the thumbnail database needs to be rebuilt.

    If iPhoto is running quit the application.
    Command-Option double click iPhoto to launch it. iPhoto will launch and then display the Rebuild Photo Library dialog.
    Rebuild the photos' small thumbnails should already be selected. If you can't see a photo unless it is blown up to full size, check Rebuild all of the photos' thumbnails.
    Click the Rebuild button.

    If that isn't the case, and the photos are black when trying to view it full size, then corruption or directory issues could be at fault.
