iPhoto & Preview -- WTF?

Post by Gary » Mon May 28, 2012 5:00 pm

Every once in a while, after I have transferred photos from my camera to iPhoto and I attempt to resize said photos using Preview, Preview can't locate the newly created event. This has been happening ever since I acquired my Mac Mini, about three years ago. Sometimes, if I merge the newly created Event with an existing event, Preview will be able to find the photos. To add insult to injury, preview will sometimes attempt to display the thumbnail of photos that I deleted from an Event. It's as if a pointer or an index is not being properly updated. I do have a program, called Drive Genius, that I use for running maintenance on my hard drive, but other than that I don't have anything to use for diagnostics. I am running OSX 10.6.8, if that makes a difference.


Any ideas?

I don't have a Mac, so I have no idea. Have you tried uninstalling and then reinstalling?

No, I try to avoid uninstalls and reinstalls whenever possible as it usually results in very bad things.

Interesting. It's a standard trick for fixing things in Windows.
