How to Restore Photos Which IPhoto Library is Not Showing?

“I had moved my iPhoto library to an external HD and it worked fine for months. One day when I was downloading pictures from my camera, suddenly all other images on my iPhoto disappeared. No photos are showing up in iPhoto. How do I make iPhoto to show my photos again? They are my precious photos and I don’t want to lose them. Kindly help me resolve this issue.”

Cause behind the problem:

Collection of pictures in iPhoto is more than just an iPhoto application. Your entire master pictures, thumbnails, preview version of images, information including how iPhoto application handle your pictures etc will be saved on a separate folder, which is in a wholly different location from main iPhoto application. At times when database record mixed up, it may give some abnormal output which actually doesn’t match with data stored in database. For example Illustrations like showing less number of photos than actual number, fail to give proper result for input and so on.

How to fix the issue:

Close iPhoto > hold option and command keys together > launch iPhoto application > opt for Repair Database and wait > then re-launch iPhoto and look for photos in the Events folders

If repairing database gives no result then you need to rebuild library to bring back iPhoto application into normal condition. But you need to think about your priceless photos.
