ok, after the 5.0.3 update i decided to rebuild the iphoto library. where you hold down control apple option on startup of iphoto or something like that. well anyways it finished, i quit and re-opened iphoto, and all my albums were gone, the only things in the sidebar are library and trash

even after putting in a little effort (google ;)), I still can't find why you would want to rebuild the iphoto library. What does it do for you? should everyone do it at some point?

I'm just as lost as you but I've never had any problems with iPhoto (admittedly I'm not a power user, if that's even possible with this app) so I figure why bother...
