    When I sync my iPhone with the specified albums in iPhoto, I get some albums on my iPhone which do not include all of the photos. Recently, I am trying to sync an album on iphoto with 57 photos and only get 15 photos in that album on my iphone?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    It's possible that some of the data in iPhoto is corrupt.
    Try to narrow it down by syncing one album at a time, and when you get to one that will not sync, look at all the photos in that album. You can't do it by just looking at the thumbnails, you will have to open the photos, one by one.
    You may have to use the option in iPhoto to rebuild the data base.

    Rebuild Database?

    James,
    You are correct, some of the photos appear corrupted. I am not familiar with "rebuilding the database" option in iPhoto. Can you help me with that?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Here is a link to the Apple site.
    Be careful here as they list several different iPhoto versions.
    There are also different kinds of rebuilds, so look down the whole page before you begin.
