I just got my wife a digital frame as one of her Christmas presents and had high hopes of uploading a load of pictures via USB today. The software included with the frame (from Brookstone) has both PC and Mac apps. If I go into my users/*name*/Pictures folder, I don't see all the photos I would normally see in iPhoto'11. And weird... I go to start iPhoto from the application icon tray and I'm told the disk is locked and do I want to repair it? I click yes and then I get another popup telling me that I don't have permission??? What is this poop? I installed iLife'11 about a month or so ago right from the DVD, and I think there was an update a few days ago... and now I thought I couldn't "see" the pictures because it's "locked" and yet if I use Finder and just open it up in sequence... iPhoto'11 opens but I don't know if its a library file or the real iPhoto. I can't believe Apple is making this transition to updated apps so difficult and risky. Google this and it sounds like my thousands of family photos might be corrupted. I am going to seriously look for another way to manage pictures on the iMac because iPhoto more or less wants you to only use pictures in the prescribed options they have. Sometimes all I want to do is drag and drop a picture into an email without making a production of it. So... are my files corrupted?
