Every time I run iPhoto 09 on snow leopard it hangs after displaying the main window. The "beach ball" goes on forever and I have to force quit.
Anybody knows what might be going on?
Same problem here, but not able to sort it out yet. Mine happened after accidentally interrupting an import from my iPhone.
None of these have so far worked for me: iPhoto starts up, seems fine (displays all of my images) but beachballs as soon as I click in the photo library pane, or try and import an image in to a clean library.
Other possible solutions I've seen mentioned.
I am on 10.6.6 / iPhoto 9.1.1 (= iPhoto '11) - around 10k images in the library.
Sources of information are linked, but arg, can only post two, so will add follow up comments with additional ones.
