One possible cause of a slow-to-launch iPhoto
Authored by: Coumerelli on Dec 31, '09 08:47:15AM

We were having a similar issue on our iMac so I just copied iPhoto from my MacBook to it and trashed the original one. Works great now.

Problem: When it was first opened we'd get the spinning beach ball of death (SBOD) for a good minute or so, then it would seem to act fine for scrolling etc. If we wanted to magnify a photo (double-click) it would get real funky and not act right. It would hang indefinitely until I hit the right combination of escape and/or enter and clicking. Maybe I'd have to stand on my right foot and poke my tongue out, too. Just really strange.
