I updated from snow leopard to Mountain Lion and iPhoto stream for iCloud does not work. I updated it to iPhoto '09 (v 8.1.2) after upgrade. I meet the qualifications of the second bullet point

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion

    Welcome to Apple Communities


    You need iPhoto 9.3.2, because your version doesn't support Photo Stream. Buy it in App Store and open

    This is not that much short of outrageous. I've also just upgraded to ML and now I'm being forced to buy a new copy of iPhoto to get back functionality I had before I upgraded my OS.


    All a bit sneaky.


    Feels like Apple have discovered low take up of iLife upgrades (is there really much more that can be done with a consumer photo editing program?) so are forcing people who are quite happy with v8 to upgrade.


    Wonder what incompatibility I'll find when I next fire up iMovie...

    WOW even MORE sneaky.


    I just went to the App Store to check out the price  - to see if it was worth buying.


    The app had the 'Install' button highlighted (instrad of the price), so thinking that the installation might somehow be included in the ML purchase I hit it. I wsa then told that as I have v8 of iPhoto installed I would have to buy it I hit 'Buy' thinking it would then reveal the price.


    It didn't. It just downloaded it.


    Can anyone tell me how much I just got rinsed for?
