    In the style of your own post: Read a post on a website. It said some stuff.


    Seriously, If you want help you have to give us something to work with.

    Remember: we cannot see your machine. There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on 8 different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary depending on the version of iPhoto and the version of the OS.  So to get help you need to give as much information as you can. Basic things like :



    - What version of iPhoto.

    - What version of the Operating System.

    - Details. As full a description of the problem as you can. For instance: 'iPhoto won't export' is best explained by describing how you are trying to export, and so on.

    - History: Is this going on long? Has anything been installed or deleted?

    - Are there error messages?

    - What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.

    - Anything unusual about your set up? Or how you use iPhoto?


    Anything else you can think of that might help someone understand the problem you have.

    That upgrader is specifically for Libraries from iPhoto 5 or earlier. What version of iPhoto did you have before upgrading?


    Also, you need to run the app not just the Installer. It's in the Applications/Utilities folder.
