Missing photos?

I was cleaning up my iPhoto library, making folders, cropping photo's, enlarging them in full screen mode, and then suddenly, as I went to enlarge a photo, and it didn't show up. It came up like this, which was weird since those photo's had been there in previous months, and in previous hours.

So I went and imported all the photo's that were missing, from there folders, and still that didn't help. I closed iPhoto, decided to go do something else, and when I opened iPhoto again, it said reindexing thumbnails, which gave me hope, but alas, it did not help.
But the weirdest part about the problem is that I can still see the photo's when they are small, to almost the largest, but when I move the slider to the highest point it just becomes a grey question mark.

I am running iPhoto 6, version 6.0.6 (322) on an CD iMac. Thank you in advance.

Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.

Hmm, crap. This happened with my iPhoto and I fixed it. Now I don't recall how I did.

Try removing all the cache files for your iPhoto Library in /Users/yourusername/Library/Caches

Then do the rebuild.

I think I did a rebuilding to fix it when it happened to me a while back.
