Rebuild the iPhoto Library
Authored by: rich13 on Jun 23, '03 06:09:24PM

I rebuilt my library, having had a few problems with reimporting a backup I made.

It really messes with the ordering of photos, in a way that seems totally bizarre... so I'd advise anyone doing this to watch out. You may have a slightly screwy library, but rebuilding it may make it really screwy :-\

If you want to go back to the old library, just go to your com.apple.iPhoto.plist file in ~/Library/Preferences/ and look for the line:

	<key>RootDirectory</key>
	<string>/Users/*you*/Pictures/iPhoto Library_1</string>

which in my file is line 171, and delete the _1

No wucking furries :-)
