Anyone know how to get into iPhoto itself after it has become just another one of the Aperture Libraries. I need to get there to make a calendar, but when I click on my iPhoto program it will not let me in. It says I have to use the Aperture Library, and no calendars are available via Aperture.

    Do you have the most recent version of iPhoto?  The most recent versions of iPhoto and Aperture share an identical Library file format.  Any Library created in either -- or updated to run in either -- should open in either.

    Close Aperture and open your Library in iPhoto.

    I know you said you have the latest version of iPhoto, but could you please tell us the exact version of iPhoto you are using? It should be 9.4.2 as of the date of this post. (You can find the version while running iPhoto by selecting the menu item iPhoto->About iPhoto. Or in the Applications folder in the Finder, right click on iPhoto and choose Get Info. The version number should be listed there.)

    If you are running MacOS X Mountain Lion (10.8.x), you can click the Apple Menu and select "Software Update". The Mac App Store app will open to the updates page and you should see the latest iPhoto listed with an Update button to its right.

     

    If you have MacOS X 10.7.x you need to find the application called "App Store" in your Applications folder and run it. (It should also be in your dock unless you removed it.) Click the Updates icon at the top of its window.
