Looking purchase iLife '08 or '09 to upgrade current iPhoto 6.0.6 but I can't find information about versions in those packages.  I missed it first time around;  having just upgraded OS from Tiger to Snow Leopard, without adding additional memory cards I understand Lion probably won't be compatible to my system.  iPhoto is not happy and constantly stalling and quitting.  I looked at iLife'11 but specs require min 10.7...  Any ideas for me?  I found iLife software for sale but don't know which is what I would need, or if what I want is even possible.  What happened to iPhoto v7?

THank you,


iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Aug 2012 upgrade

    There is no iLife or iPhoto '07. ILife versions contain the same version of iPhoto. You should be able to purchase iLife '08 or '09 on EBAY or Amazon

    Thank you for answering so promptly LarryHN.   I was referring to iPhoto version 7 (not the iLife package, fyi)...  I did find there was a version 7.  Found only download available for 7.1 so I was confused.    I couldn't find any archived information either.

     

    Thank you.  I'll continue to shop.

    iPhoto 08 is v7

     

    iPhoto 09 is v8

     

    iPhoto 11 is v9

     

    There is no way to update to iphoto 08 or 09 without an appropriate iLife install disk (iLife 08 and 09 respectively)

     

    Regards

    Obtained and installed iLife'09 (v8.0) ..  new problems...   ERROR MESSAGE READS:

     

    "The photo library needs to be upgraded to work with this version of iPhoto.   

    Your library will not be readable by PREVIOUS (6.0.6) AFTER THIS UPGRADE. 

    The upgrade process may take several minutes depending on the number of photos in the library." (390.4MB)    QUIT or upgrade !!!  

     

    What unknown consequences may follow if I try to upgrade?  I'm afraid!   [and I didn't finish cleaning up iPHoto library either before install.  I didn't expect more problems.]

     

    Happen to also have HP3140 All-in-One Printer/Scanner using Photosmart Studio.  It doesn't appear to have all of my iPhoto library uploaded with only 25.4MB. I couldn't import from iphoto tonight ...  Thought I could use as backup.  Maybe I should just use this and learn how to use it...

    That's not an Error message. That's a standard warning. Everyone gets it and it means only what it says. The Library will be upgraded. You won't be able to use iPhoto 6 on this any more.

     

    As for unknown consequences? Well you have a back up, right?

     

    No idea what you're asking about thos HP3140. No, you cannot use a Printer/Scanner as a back up.

    Thank you Terence Devlin in iPhoto:   I burned some disks a few weeks ago upgrading OS from Tiger to Snow Leopard, but don't know if everything is on them and it would take me a long to time to figure that out.  [This part is new for me... obviously.   I'm a few years behind having been ill and am trying to catch up and unable to purchase newer equipment.]

     

    I was concerned that "message" was warning me about something going wrong ... 

     

    I didn't find iLife'08 only iLife'09 so I went for it;  so I'm going from 6.0.6 passing version 7.  Is that done? or do they need to be sequential?  You did say 8 OR 9...

     

    I was only referring to the software that the HP has called Photosmart Studio, much like iPhoto.  Wasn't referring to "Printer/Scanner as a backup", only the Software that came with it that has editing capabilities, just not all my iphoto library is  in there.  That's what I meant as a backup, much like uploading to Shutterfly, or Snapfish.

     

    Thanks, Please continue to advise.

    That's perfectly doable. You're doing fine.

    I installed iLife'09 iPhoto 8.1.2.  I so liked 6.0.6 better.   Had previous import problems which prompted this upgrade, I know have duplicate, triplicates of photos.  With "Events" that iPhoto has predetermined based on "I-don't-know-what",  I can't just view the Library as before to compare photo-to-photo and delete extras.  I don't need extras unless they are modified (crops). 

     

    Now I'm curious about specs for iLife'10, version 9; is it usuable on Snow Leopard?   

     

    I made further mistakes importing Photos Folder into iPhone thru iTUnes (because I learned all the photos in the Folder were not necessarily in my iPhoto "Library") and have to figure out how to clean all that up on iphone without delete to trash edit function.  I'm guessing changing settings on iTunes Photo syncing might be of help.

     

    So what's the purpose of having a separate "Photos" Folder I wonder?

     

    Next mission is to learn about wifi, wireless routers, airport...

    a few things

     

    stay out of the iPhoto library - there are no user servicable parts in it  direct access to it is not supported and never has been. it is a SQLite database and can only be accessed via the database management software - iPhoto

     

    Events are generated for each import according to your settings in the iPhoto preferences

     

    NEVER make any changes to the structure or content of the database, the iPhoto library using any program including the finder  except iPhoto

     

    There is no iLife '10 - only '08, '09 and '11

     

    as to photos 'necessarily" being in your iPhoto library, no  --  only photos you have imported to iPhoto are in the iPhoto library
