My wife and I both have G4 powerpc 733 mhx 1.0gb ram running 10.4.11. A few months ago, I went to check my photos in iPhoto..... they were all gone !!! Now, yesterday, my wife was going to print out a photo, low and behold, all her photos are missing on her machine !!!!

What the heck :is happening ????

Seems unlikely they are gone gone... so hopefully your directory is confused and can't find them. Can you search for images in general - set spotlight to look for images only. Hopefully you will find them. Where does your iPhoto "prefs" say they are?

When you open iPhoto what's there or on screen?

Repair Permissions.

Disk First Aid.

Try a Combo Updater on your OS to see if something is corrupted in the OS that can be fixed with the Combo.

Look in her Home Directory, inside Pictures and do a Get Info on iPhoto Library. Check the permissions on it. How big is the database?


Lots of stuff to look at.

Yes, be sure you are logged into the correct user too, if there are multiple accounts on either box.

Backups?

You might try rebuilding the library. That is if you have a backup. Check this out Apple Support (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2638)
