    Hello,

    I'm the unfortunate victim of a corrupted iPhoto database. I can see my images if I show the contents of the iPhoto Library Package. However, iPhoto cannot access the images.

    After some research I discovered that I need to rebuild my iPhoto Library Database. Obviously, I have never done this before and I wanted to ask anyone else here if they have encountered this. Are there any special precautions that I need to take aside from making a backup?

    TIA

    Nope, no other special precautions. Just make sure you do the backup before you try to rebuild. That way, whatever happens, you can always go back and not be worse off than before you did the rebuild.
