I can't access the 'last import' photos from web forums or when trying to attach to an email which I'm already writing. Sometimes they are in 'last 12 months' but most often don't appear for a few hours, even the next day. Closing and re-opeing iphoto, or rebooting, makes no difference. I've also tried copying to an album and starting the whole upload process again to no effect. However, when I close/reopen iPhoto, they are always there in 'last import' etc.

Anyone any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
