Three questions
-What computer are you running
-What version of iPhoto are you running
-What version of Leopard are you running

I have a similar problem but I photo works OK (I did run the on line update).

For me, it's Photoshop that doesn't work. (Full version Photoshop )

Machine is G5 Dual 1.8 ghz, 2.25 g RAM.

If a program is crashing, can you post a link to the crash report (ie: upload it to somewhere on the web rather than post it here)? You'll find crash reports in /Users/yourusername/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/.

At least we can figure out if it's Apple or if it's something third party you've installed, the latter being most common.

Hi there,
I've got exactly the same problem. Installed Leopard a couple of days ago and BINGO Iphoto won't run. I've done Software Update but no joy. Happy New Year to all by the way.:)

If your running any add ons for iphoto, delete them and restart the computer, see if that helps.

And regarding photoshop, google it

Check that you only have one iPhoto Library in your iPhoto folder, and that it's a file, not a folder. If your old folder is still in there you'll have to remove it and rename the new library file "iPhoto Library".

Edit: Sorry, this post was assuming you'd just installed iPhoto '08.

Have you tried the good old delete iPhoto preferences - and if this fails, reinstall it from your iLife DVD.

I had a similar problem and here's what worked for me:

- hold down "Option" key, then click iPhoto to launch
- iPhoto will ask you to identify your iPhoto Library
- find the iPhoto library, click open

Once I did this, iPhoto now launches without a problem.

Hope that's helpful.

Thanks JB,

Reinstall worked a treat.
