What version of Mac Os X are you using ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Version 10.8.5

Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
We can reinstall your Mac OS X and that should fix it. Reinstalling the OS X replace the system files and won't delete any others. Restart your Mac and immediately hold down Command and R keys at the same time. This will boot into Mac OS X Utilities menu. Select Reinstall Mac OS X option in there and follow the onscreen instructions.

And put the iPhoto and Libraries back to the Appications and Pictures folder before reinstlling OS X.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.
