Non-working Export menu in iPhoto '08!

No, I am not about to post an iPhoto tip for the second day in a row. The tip will come later today. This is actually a fix to a problem that you might experience since you have installed iLife '08. If you have installed the Facebook Exporter for iPhoto that I mentioned previously on this website, you will notice that the Export dialog doesn't work in iPhoto '08. It seems that this plugin is not compatible with the latest version of iPhoto. There should be an update to this plugin very soon. In the meantime, if you want to use the Export feature, you'll have to find a way to uninstall this plugin. To get it working again:

1. Close iPhoto.
2. In the Applications folder, right-click on iPhoto and choose "Show Package Contents".
3. Open the "Contents" folder.
4. Open "PlugIns".
5. Delete the file called "Facebook.iPhotoExporter".
6. Reopen iPhoto!

This is not perfect because you'll lose the Facebook Exporter but you will at least be able to use the Export menu until the developer updates the exporter.

The real tip is coming later today!

Found this post through a Google search. Thought I'd let others know that this solution works for older versions of iPhoto as well. I have iPhoto 2 and Export didn't work until unselected the Facebook exporter option.
