iPhoto 8, from iLife 9 should work, it was "Universal" & required 10.5.6, I think the problem is the one she's trying to use is a copy from an IntelMac install... which is the other architecture.
Version iLife Introduction OS X Binary iPhoto 1 – January 7, 2002 10.1 PowerPC iPhoto 2 iLife January 3, 2003 10.1 PowerPC iPhoto 4 iLife '04 January 6, 2004 10.2.6 PowerPC iPhoto 5 iLife '05 January 11, 2005 10.3.4 PowerPC iPhoto 6 iLife '06 January 10, 2006 10.4.3 Universal iPhoto 7 iLife '08 August 7, 2007 10.4.9 Universal iPhoto 8 iLife '09 January 7, 2009 10.5.6 Universal iPhoto 9 iLife '11 October 20, 2010 10.6.3 Intel

Thanks for the help. I like the chart, but now I cannot find a suitable version to replace the one on her computer.
I have tried to find a version that will work, but no luck.

iPhoto 8.1.2 is the correct version for Leopard 10.5.8, and is the version I use, so the reasons for it not opening are not one of comppability.
It is correctly placed in your Applications folder?

My understanding is that iLife in an an optional install on one of the original grey disks shipped with new Macs. It is not included on black retail OS install disks. If you want to install a missing or damaged iLife you can do it from an original grey disk or purchase it from Apple.

I have the gray disks for the original G5 machine as well as the Leopard disk as well as the gray Snow Leopard disks. I will see if I can find it with Pacifist.
Thanks to all.

iPhoto 8.1.2 is an updater, not the full application, which is part of iLife 9. Do you have the original disk for iLife 9? You need to have iPhoto installed in your Applications folder before you can update it.

There is no reason why iPhoto 8.1.2 should not exist as a full application but the following link is not a full application it is only an updater:
The OP should be able to install an old version of iLife from his original grey OS install disks and then update it via Software Update.
