    Did you forget that we just had this exact discussion

     

    The answer still is Well when you opened the older iPhoto library with iPhoto '11 you were told that the library would be upgraded and would not be able to be opener by previous versions (like iPhoto 5 or 6 for example). You were then given the option to quit or to upgrade. You chose to upgrade. Therefore your library is no longer able to be accessed byiPhoto 5 or 6

     

    You can use iPhoto Library Manager http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ to try to downgrade the library. If it works you will have a library for your old iPhoto and a seperate and different version for the new iPhoto. You can not access one library from two different versions of iPhoto

    Well if you contine to totally ignore warning messages and click ok do not be shocked when things you were warned against happen exactly as you were told they would

     

    Once you convert a library you can not use it with previous versions as you were warned.

     

    And as you were informed iPhoto Library Manager http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ may be able to down grade your library

     

    Have a nice day
