Unable to open iPhoto

by Honig_family / December 27, 2012 4:37 PM PST

When I tried to open iPhoto, there was an error message: "There is a problem accessing one or more files in your iPhoto library. Do you want iPhoto to repair permissions for this library for you?" I selected the repair option but get another message: "iPhoto was unable to repair permissions for the library." I was forced to quit without being able to open iPhoto.

Time to start looking at your backup of iPhoto

you could try repairing permissions on the whole disk, using Disk Utility. Not sure it would do anything but it can hurt anything.
