seems like my iphoto 11 has disappeared from applications, how can I recover/reinstall it. Given it is part of osx10.8.2 i dont want to have to purchase it separately to reinstall??
No - iPhoto is not a part of any OS - it is a seperate application
You reinstall for the original source - either the restore disks taht came with your computer or the Purchased applications in the App Store (you may have to accept first)
