I have just tried to open iPhoto after the latest 'fix' from Apple.
When it starts I get a message saying that I need to ensure that I have Read and Write rights in Library>iPhoto order to proceed.

Can someone help me with this anomoly?

Thank you.

Thank you for your offer of help but I discovered the answer. I did not have permission for access to folder levels under level 1 of the folder structure. I had to change that and then everything was OK.

This may help someone else in the future.

As a long time unix and Linux user before coming to Mac, I know that file permissions don't simply spontaneously change themselves. What is it with Macs that you need to repair permissions so often? Something is badly wrong if this is the case.

In the case of the above, you had a fully functioning iPhoto setup I am guessing. Then you upgraded to the latest version, and suddenly you were being denied access to part of your set up. How does this happen? Is this a bug in iPhoto, or something deeper about Macs that I am just too new to "get"?

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
