Rebuild the iPhoto Library
Authored by: TvE on Feb 04, '05 04:05:24PM

HMM

Just upgraded to iLife 5.0.1 and wanted to have my thumbnails (Library) rebuild since some of the thumbnails are looking a lot worse than others - even though they're all shot with the same Nikon D100 at the same settings.

Anyways it seems that the shortcut to invoke the Library rebuilding is CMD-OPT - not the before mentioned SHIFT-OPT.
The latter - or just SHIFT - gives you they upportunity to create a new album or choose another preexisting album.

Anyways I'll hit the "Rebuild Library" button now and see how long time it takes to have 2.300 6 megapixel images rebuilded on my old TiBook ;-)

Hmm - the thumbnail-files are NOT rebuild, I wonder how you can acheive that WITHOUT having to re-import all the images

BINGO - with iPhoto 5.0.2 you now get four different items to choose from when you hold CMD-OPT down during the launch of iPhoto - one of them being "Rebuild Thumbnails".

It took a whole hour (with 100% CPU-load) for my 867 MHz TiBook to rebuild everything (2.700 six megapixel Nikon D100 shots) - but it was definately worth the wait since my bad looking thumbnail-problem is SOLVED now.

I guess someone should rewrite the hint, anyways - now it's in a comment ;-)


PS.: I guess it (still) helps to tell Apple what features/bugs you find (I did :-)
