Speed up iPhoto '09 by vacuuming its databases
Authored by: wjv on Nov 06, '09 09:22:28AM
If you open iPhoto '09 version 8.1 in "library rebuild mode" by holding down cmd and opt, as detailed in this Apple knowledgebase article, then there is now an option to "Reclaim unused disk space from databases". I can't see how this can imply anything other than vacuuming the databases.

I don't know whether this option was also in 8.0; it's been a long time since I've rebuilt my iPhoto library. At any rate, I assume that using this officially supported way of vacuuming the databases should probably be used in preference to the manual way I outlined in the original hint.
