So I've been browsing around a few various tip sites for Mail and I ran across the fact that you can rebuild your mail dbase. For the heck of it a did a search on rebuilding iPhoto. Sure enough I found out that if you hold down + option during iPhoto startup you get a bunch of options for repairing the iPhoto Library. I did this and OMG. Its like something just forced iPhoto to chug about 30 cans of Jolt and kicked it in the butt HARD. Teh snappy has returned to iPhoto. I'm going to do this for my other libraries but for the life of me why doesn't Apple have this documented in either their help files or simply an option under help -> Repair or something. As much as I like OS X and its iLife packages the design choices made by Apple can really be....frustrating. From time to time.
