    iPhoto Crashed
    Hi

    iPhoto recently crashed on me (along with iTunes after an OS update). Whilst I think most of the 7,000 photos I had are still there, they are just random collection of photos, not in their Event folders and not even in the correct date order. To say I am pissed off is putting it mildly.

    Does anyone know a way of recovering what I had?

    Assuming you didn't make a backup before upgrading OS X.... You can try to rebuild and or repair your iPhoto library and see if that sorts things out for you again.

    Wonderful. Just roll back to the version of the iPhoto Library from the day before the OS update.
