    iPhoto Library Problems
    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.
