    My Photo app on High Sierra on my iMac crashes shortly after startup. I have rebuild the library but get the same result with a huge crash report. My library has over 6000 photo's. I have also the Photo app running on my Macbook with some 600 photos. No problem. So I imported the photo library from my iMac to my Macbook. The started the Photo app with Option Key and selected the larger library that I copied from my iMac. When opening Photos it stays active for a short while and I can see that it has 6000+ photos, but after 15 seconds it stops. I get a little menu asking whether I want to restart it and report the problem to Apple.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem and is there a solution to this error

    Same problem here.

    I had AppleCare do a remote screen share for this. Do you use iCloud Photo Library? I do. They had me disable it (really hard to do when Photos only stays open for ~15 seconds, but on the 10th time I was able to do it), then repair the library.

    That worked for me but seemed hokey-pokey.

    No, I am using a local library. There is a small difference between my iMac and Macbook. On my Macbook it keeps running for 10 seconds longer and I do not get this huge dump, it just stops and after a minute I get a menu asking if I want to report it to Apple or want to restart.

    Have you tried this?:
    1. Hold down Option-Command while you open Photos.
    2. In the dialog that appears, click Repair to start the repair process.
    Not sure if you already have, but figured I'd post it just in case (saw that you did a "Rebuild" but uncertain if the same process was used).

    Yes I have done that multiple times but to no success.

    It doesn't seem like it. And what I can see from the High Sierra betas there are only small "repairs" but nothing for Photos. I would rather have iPhoto back. The new features I do not need and a program that crashes on large files for me is useless.

    I had the exact same issue while running Photos in High Sierra. Rebuilding did not help, but turning off all iCloud photo tasks seems to have fixed it. I went into setting instead of trying to do it in photos in the short time I had. Just go into settings and make sure the Photos setting is unchecked in the iCloud settings. Hope this helps

    This didn't work for me. My photos setting in iCloud was already switched off.

    What I have done now is going back a month with Time Machine and have overwritten my iphotolibrary. The Photos worked OK. Then I reloaded all my photos from my iPhone and was back in business again.

    Fortunately Time Machine from my Time Capsule saved me.

    No idea what is going on.. worked great yesterday after turning off iCloud, and it just started crashing again.. Unfortunately, I dont have a time machine backup, so I think I will have to roll back to Sierra..
    Definitely not a fun thing to do so I am going to try and figure this out.

    Here is my crash report.. Hopefully someone knows how to read this. Says something about a crashed thread, maybe that means something..

    Sorry to hear it came back. I opened a case w/ AppleCare via the website, which ended up with a call back and sharing my screen for them so they could see what's going on. If you have some time, might be worth a shot to at least let them know what's going on.

    There is definitely a problem with Photos that Apple needs to sort out.
    Have you tried to open a previous Photo library from your Photo directory? I have several versions with different content, but you might be able to rebuild an older library to the latest one by adding the most current photos from you iPhone. Hope that helps

    Photos desktop app is also hanging/crashing for me on High Sierra. When it's not doing that, it's running very slowly and spinning up the fans. Starting to wonder if I should just "be assimilated" and switch to Google Photos. I have nearly 40,000 photos going back three decades, and some scanned in from early Kodachrome slides. At least I can hold the slides up to the light and they still work!

    I have iTunes crashing, mainly during device backups. But I’ve also had photos crash while importing photos.

    When I’m not backing up devices or importing photos the programs run great. Getting to be a real issue.

    Apple has to pay more attention to fixing showstopper bugs like this instead of just introducing new (and sometimes buggy) features.

    BTW, its implementation of Cloud storage really sucks. It often will completely kill Live Photos compatibility.

    This is very frustrating. I'm reading all these entries and I have the same problem. I'm in the middle of scanning old pictures and getting them organized in my photos library, and I upgraded to the new Sierra OS, and now everytime I open the photo app, it shuts down after about 3 minutes. I can't continue with my project till this is fixed. I've tried moving my library to an external drive but that didn't work. Is Apple going to do something about this? How can we find out if they are even working on this issue? I'm very upset. This has set me back on my project a great deal. Ugh!

    Do you have a Time Capsule with a backup of a working Photo library. This might help you rebuilding the library.

    I use Time Machine (not sure if that is the same thing). So are you saying I should restore a previous version of my photo library? If so, I'm assuming I should restore the version from before I did the upgrade to High Sierra?
    btw...thanks for responding and helping. :)

    Time Capsule is the physical disk and Time Machine the features in Mac OS that allows you to restore to previous libraries.

    I went back about a month and indeed before the upgrade to High Sierra. When I opened the recovered library under High Sierra Apple converted the iPhoto library to Photos. That worked OK. Then I loaded the photos that were still on my iPhone. It has worked since. Hope it does for you as I believe this problem should be solved by Apple as it causes problems for so many users.

    Wouter3...THANK YOU!!!! I restored an older version of my library, then after having to change some settings, it synched with my icloud pictures and it seems to have fixed the problem. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain this to me. I am soooo happy!!! Thank you again.!

    At the risk of being repetitive, I just thought I would weigh in because it's 2018 and I just experienced the same problem. Turns out I had a corrupted Photo Library. I had just switched over from iPhoto, having just updated to High Sierra from OS 10.6.8. Via an Apple Support call this morning I found the simple solution was to:

    1. Press Option + Command while opening Photos App.
    2. Select 'Repair' (to repair library)
    3. Restart computer.
    4. Open Photos App.

    I was ready to use an alternative photo browser/editor, but luckily I got Photos to work again. Hope this helps somebody.

    High Sierra Photos started crashing regularly tonight: every 30 seconds. Impossible to use. Before that it would crash 1-2 timed per session. This upgraded 64 bit version is obviously a beta and should never have been launched.

    For a couple years I've needed to delete and regenerate my whole library about once a month. I keep hoping that with each revision the issue will be solved (must be hundreds of error logs sent from me to Apple by now), but it never does. I have about 40,000 photos in my library. (iCloud synced).
