iPhoto no longer displays full view of photos after Time Machine restore. Nor will it upload photos from my camera. Help me figure these problems out.

I have an iMac (27" 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB RAM 1TB HD). Recently I had to get the hard drive replaced
and so dutifully made sure I had Time Machine back it up to my external TB drive before I took it in for the replacement.
When the hard drive had been replaced I started the computer up from the Recovery system (Command-R at startup) and then used the "Restore From Time Machine Backup" utility.
Most everything came back working fine and there were no error messages. Unfortunately, iPhoto no longer displays photos in full view or edit view. It also reports not being able to read the file type ("unrecognizable format") when trying to upload new photos from my camera (same camera I've always used).
The photos themselves seem fine as I am able to open them in Preview to their full resolution.
Any advice or ideas are appreciated. Thanks!
(There is an issue with my Apple Care registration that is being worked out so I am not able to consult with them at the moment.)
