I have recently moved from windows to my Mac and love it, however I'm having problems with missing photos in iPhotos.

I have imported all my old photos to iPhoto from folders on my desktop. Most photos have been imported ok, however there are a few now showing the missing photo icon. Looking at the iPhoto help it explains the photos are not in the iPhoto library folder (they are) and to re import them (which I have several times!) When re importing the photos it then show them a duplicates! However as soon as I close iPhoto they disappear.

I have removed all traces of the photos from the iPhoto and the iPhoto library folder and tried again but to no avail.

Any body else had this problem and how did you get round it? Is there a problem with the actual photos.

Help!

If the thumbnails show up in iPhoto have you tried this

Click on thumbnail----Go to Photos (On menu bar)---Then choose Revert to original

It worked for me when something similar happen to me I had the thumbnail and when I clicked on it to edit I got the "!"

Thanks for your advice, however when I tried what you suggested the revert to original opinion is not available, it's in light grey.

Anybody else?

You have to click on the thumbnail in iphoto first.. it should highlight blue

You could also import the pictures by Dragging them on to the iPhoto icon as I do somtimes
