Avoid a bad iPhoto5 'vanishing album' bug
Authored by: gperks on Jan 26, '05 04:39:38PM

I managed to lose a few albums in this fashion before I realized what was happening. Some I recovered via Undo, but it was too late for others.

Now if I try to recreate the albums, iPhoto tells me that the album already exists.

The missing albums are not found in AlbumData.xml, but are in the Albums folder. My guess it that hand-editing AlbumData.xml will restore the missing albums, but I haven't tried it yet.

Has anyone recovered missing albums?

iPhoto '05 is a blessing and a curse. It has some fabulous new features (way to go, iPhoto team!), but several easily found and serious bugs. It's hard to believe that it shipped in this state; very un-Apple like. I hope they get a patch out ASAP.
