Lately every time I start iPhoto I get the following message:

iPhoto has detected inconsistencies in your library.

I always click on repair library but the next time I open it I get the same message.

I am using a new iMac with Lion and up until recently everything was fine.

Any ideas on what I can do?

Thanks

Haven't seen that particular error message, but the first thing I would do is repair disk permissions and let Onyx and Disk Utility scan my HD, just in case I had a hardware issue developing with the drive.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Hold down the command and option keys when starting iPhoto for various repair options if you haven't used that option.
Otherwise run Onyx.
