    seriously why???

    I've had this issue for MONTHS. I posted it a while ago on MR but never really got a solid solution....

    I've since updated to iLife 08....nothing has changed.

    so here goes again.

    in iPhoto, whenever I right click on any picture, I get the pop up image below, and when I click ok....iPhoto just shuts off. Doesn't crash, just quits....in disgust...:p

    But it sucks!....WHY does it do that??:confused:

    You on an administator account? Repaired disk permissions?

    Your photos located on your Mac HD or elsewhere?

    That sounds like a permissions issue.
    Try Repairing Permissions.
    If you are using from a non-admin. acct. take a look at the Photos folder and see who the owner is ("Get Info") and what permissions are granted to "others".
    I had a similar problem on my daughters computer regarding a game in the shared folder. They could play but not save. Check

    Thanks for the replies.

    This is a tough one.

    -I've repaired permissions countless times (this is not a new problem, I've had it since the spring)

    -I'm on an administrator account, I don't have anything but an administrator account.

    -all my pics are where they should be. Local HD - in Pictures folder.

    i'll try that when I get home, thanks. :)

    You are from BC and I am guessing that you smoked pot before you attempted to use your mac. This is not a good idea unless you are working on an app that you are familiar with or you are replying to a message in a forum that has been posted by someone from BC.

    Hmmmm .... I think I should log out now

    Cheers. :D :apple:

    This may just be impossible.

    Nothing works.

    Repaired permisions.
    did a 'get info' all privileges are set to me (also tried setting them to system)
    tried messing with get info-> read write access for other folders inside the package (like the originals and modified) folders....

    nothing...

    totally baffled. Can ANYONE help me on this?????????


    ummmm, no offense, but what the hell are you talking about?
