WARNING!!
Authored by: rbenezra on Mar 05, '09 04:37:43AM

Using this command did indeed speed up iPhoto but I now have noticed that about 5% of my photos give a (!) when I try to edit them. The photos are in the database but have to be re-imported to show up properly. Major hassle. I rebuilt he database/thumbnails, etc that you can do on an option/command launch but that did not help. Could this be related to the vacuuming or is this likely to have existed beforehand? On another computer, that is also running iPhoto 09 no such problem exists but I haven't vacuumed (and won't until I figure this out). Have any others seen this problem after running the vacuum command?

With further testing it does now seem the vacuuming might have done the damage. I had a SuperDuper clone which was running iPhoto 09 with the cloned library that hadn't been vacuumed and that library was fine. I would be very careful using this hint and although Robg said it didn't break anything I wonder how carefully he (or others) looked. Please post if you have a similar problem.

I scanned my entire library, and didn't notice any "!" tagged photos, but that was about the extent of my testing.

This is a problem that I've noticed for some time as a result of using iphoto diet a while back. I don't know if there's an easy way to do a batch of photos, but for individual photos - "revert to original" seems to bring the photo back.
