Interesting photo, May. I love how the colors in the clothes exactly match the colors of many of the houses you have also photographed. This is a really nice flavor shot.

Thank you Ryan, for finding the photos which are further back, since I can't upload any new ones for the moment.

Yes, it's the colours and the unusual sight of clothes drying at the fence, what made me stop and get out of the car. It shows something of the practical sense the Irish people have developped. To use the fence as a washdryer - I just loved it!

I wonder, if Gerry will see it as well.

Greetings, May

Yes, I've seen clothes dried on a line many times, but never on a fence.

Why can't you upload more, did your apple break?

Greetings, Ryan

There is something wrong with the system, the files don't show anymore. I will have to see an expert, if I can't find out by myself. :-(

I have found out on the internet, that many persons have problems with i-Photo as well. Too bad!

Ryan Calhoun on September 26, 2007

I would fix it for you if I could, May! Unfortunately the travel and shipping costs would be a little bit prohibitive.

Is it just photos, or other files too?

Do you mean the photos don't show in iPhoto, or they aren't on the hard drive anymore?

Did you just do an update to a new version or anything? Or did it just stop working one day?

I'm sure if many people have the same problem, a solution will be found pretty quickly.

Fingers crossed!

Thank you Ryan! I didn't know you were an expert. I guess I could buy some new computers for the amount your travel would cost.

It's the photos, but as soon as I want to look at the system, the whole thing freezes.

They are for certain on the HD. They just don't load anymore.

I am sure to find a solution for it. At the worst case I start to save money for a new computer and scan the old ones and I still have some old pics on my old computer. But that's actually not what I intended. :-))

Thanks and Greetings,

Couldn't you try to view the images with another program like Preview instead of iPhoto, or even copy the files to a usb drive and then to your other computer to look at? I think they way iPhoto works, it puts the library into a bunch of folders and keeps them organized for you, but the original image files should all still be there for the taking.

I think I have heard of iPhoto's library being corrupted before, but that you can rebuild the library, and this doesn't damage any of the pictures. It's something like pressing Control or Command or maybe Shift or Alt as you start the program, and it asks you if you want to rebuild the library. I don't know if it would work or not, but it shouldn't hurt anything at all (it won't affect the image files themselves).

Many lucks!

Thanks Ryan! Don't worry! I have seen all the questions and answers in the Apple-Forum about similar problems.

The problem is deeper, i-photo had collapsed in Spring and even the specialist couldn't save it. Everything was messed up, worse than when I brought it. I rebuilt it manually and it worked up to now.

Thanks, I just won't talk about it anymore. I'll either find a solution or I buy a PC next time. Greetings, May

Greetings Arthur

Thank you Arthur! I think it's a funny picture. What a good and simple solution to hang up the washing there. I sometimes wish, the world would be so practical to find the nearest solution. ;)

Greetings, May
