in iPhoto 11 (9.1.4), when either selecting a photo to preview or attempting to edit, it dissappears and leaves me with a blank preview. no borders or exclamation points. just nothing. original  images are all still in their original locations.

permission issue? i can't find anything online like this.

> updated and the problem no longer exists.

if the problem no long exists after updating the program as instructed above, the question should be considered answered rather than to be deleted.
