    I wrote and used a perl script for removing duplicate files on my mac and it had an unexpected and unpleasant result with iPhoto.

    During the time of my extensive use of iPhoto some of my images, especially ones I had scanned, were duplicated. When I used the script to delete them iPhoto appears to have gotten really confused and now many of the pictures are not viewable, exportable or editable.

    I either need to find a way to have iPhoto reindex it's database or just use a script to rip out all my photos and re-import them.

    Does anyone have any experience in this or advice on how to do it? It's about 4,000 photos right now.

    I have already exported all of the photos to a DVD (just barely manyaged to fit them all on one 4.7G dvd) so at least I'm backed up there...
