    Hi,

    I have a weird problem. This morning when I opened up iPhoto to burn some photos to CD, all my thumbnails blacked out. When I scroll through them, I get a rolling block that shows the images, but as soon as I stop scrolling, the images black out again.

    Any idea what the problem might be please?

    My set up is this:

    Apple MacBook Pro 15" 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo, 2Gb Ram, 320Gb WD hard drive
    Mac OS X v10.4.11
    iPhoto 6, v6.0.6
    12,701 photos, taking up 51.3 Gb in the iPhoto library

    and this is a screen shot: :eek:

    Any ideas? Run out of memory? Virus? Too many pictures for iPhoto to cope with?

    Thanks for any help or advice,
    Effortless.

    I had a slightly similar issue to this and I rebuild the thumbnail library which sorted it out.

    See Apple Support Docs here
