    I have my Photos library hosted on my NAS and access the library between my rMBP 13" and my 2007 iMac. Both are running Yosemite (10.10.3) with the latest versions of Photos.

    Lately though, regardless of which computer used the library last I have to do a Repair of the library every time I open Photos. Anyone else having any issues like this? Any suggestions on cause or solution? Thanks.

    Proposed solution: move to Lightroom and don't look back.

    I'm actually moving over to Flickr. I haven't looked at it for years but the re-write of it is actually pretty nice, 1TB of storage too which is plenty for me.

    If there's any sort of corruption then Photos.app will prompt you to repair. I don't know of any way to do it manually.

    Hold down command-option when launching.
