Updating thumbnails in iphoto
Once it's done, your image thumbnails should be back and ready for your viewing pleasure.
If some of your photo thumbnails are still missing try quitting i Photo, then use the .i Photo, with thumbnail images restored Lots of Mac users have a love/hate relationship with i Photo because it offers some great features, but also has some annoying bugs, too.

Many thanks i OS5 USERS several readers have commented saying the 3 files to delete are no longer present since upgrading to i OS5 and were unsure which files to delete.
Try all of the other options before using this one.
This isn’t ideal though and if you want to keep the images to hand on the phone you’ll need to create a new photos folder and resync the photos to the i Phone for future viewing.
A few people have contacted me directly asking if they could make a small contribution for saving all their holiday photos or saving them hours on the phone to Apple Care.
You may have noticed some adverts scattered around my site, I put these on to try and make enough money to cover the hosting cost for my blog but very few people ever click on them, I could probably get a better click rate if I smothered my site in annoying pop-up ads but I’ll never do that, however, if you have found this post helpful and would like to make a small donation every pound/dollar/euro/cent/pence would be greatly appreciated.
There are still some questions you need to answer as you move to the new Photos app, from whether you should use the option to store your library in i Cloud to what you should do with your old i Photo library.
If your computer was not shutdown correctly, there may be files that were left open at the time. Rebuild Thumbnails i Photo may have missing or damaged temporary images that i Photo needs. Repair Database If the photos in your library don't match what i Photo thinks it should be, this option will fix that problem.
i Photo looks at what photos are in the library and updates its records accordingly.
Once merged, related photos can be viewed in one place and unneeded items pruned out.
Using i Photo to manage the photos from your i Phone, i Pad, and digital camera is fine unless the thumbnails showing you previews of your snapshots disappear.
