So apparently I've done something dumb without realizing it.

I have been making up some DVD slideshows and it was really annoying me to go through all the different rolls to find the pictures I was looking for. Some were sent to me by friends, so I would put them into iphoto, not realizing that each picture would make its own roll! Before I knew it I had 250 rolls with one picture on each of them!
So I went through and deleted the duplicates in Finder and put them all into categories where they'll be easier to find. Except now when I view slideshows on iphoto, half of the pictures have blank spots where my pics used to be!

How do I fix this? Please help the idiot girl in the corner!!

Thanks!!!

No, thank goodness I'm not that dumb... I restored everything and then went through and organized, but half of the pics are still coming up with that little grey exclamation point... I'm so annoyed!!!

OK, I'm going to ask one of those trademark blonde questions... how do I do that? It won't delete all of my pictures would it? Because that would be VERY bad!! LOL

Well, I tried it but it didn't work. A window keeps coming up saying that the file I'm trying to import into iPhoto is an unreadable file.

are you selecting all of the photos at once and draging them in? or indiviualy cause if your doing it all at once there could be a non image file that you selected by mistake that is stoping you from importing

I have figured something out... if I move the files one at a time into the applications folder, then to iphoto, then delete the non-image... that works. It's just a long process and there must be something faster.

Basically, I'm moving the picture so I can see it in my iphoto... I guess I shouldn't do that then!! LOL!! OMG, I'm going to leave it alone and play with it again tomorrow. But thanks for the suggestions... hopefully tomorrow I can get it to go!
