Here I go again. One step forward and two back

I thought I was doing great. I got a new album transferred from a USB Flash drive to my I-photo library. I even got the pictures into a named album.

So...hubby and I were reviewing the album using the slideshow and that went well. Then I went into an album to delete some photos and that went well.

Then I tried to close I-photo and I had no place to close it. I have no way of getting back to the original I-Photo page. I shut my computer down and restarted. I went onto I-Photo and it flashed the original page for about 1 second and then I got switched to all my physical albums...and I am stuck.

How do I get unstuck and get my original I-Photo page back??

I have no idea why it happened.

I got it back. I don't know how but my front page is back.

Did you chose "Import photos" (from the flash drive) into iPhoto?

In iPhoto, when you import photos these are imported and saved as "Events." So, launch iPhoto and then look at the iPhoto window on the screen. You will notice "Events" near the left top corner of the window. You will also see "Photos" not too far from Events.

If you click on Photos, then you can view all the photos in all the events. If you click on Events instead of photos, then you will see groups of photos as imported from the flash drive, or any other place.

In older versions of iPhoto, you only see one photo when you click on one Event. But if you scroll over the the first photo of an even, you will notice that the other photos in that Event will flash-by. If you then want to see all the photos on that even, just double-click over the photo in that Event. Now the window should show thumbnails all all your photos on that event. If you now want to see any of these photos in full size, just double-click on the photo, and the whole window will be filled with this photo.
