    When you upgrade iPhoto to the next version the upgrade installer will automaticallly install the themes folder.  You don't have to save or copy anything.

    That's only if you have books with themes that are not included in the newer version of iPhoto.  If you have books with themes are are included with iPhoto 9 (11) you can ignore that step.

    I don't know.  Why not try to launch them now to see if they will open.

    One approach would be to get an external HD and clone your current boot drive to it or add a parition to an existing EHD and install your system and add the 8.1.2 iPhoto application and library.  Other files and documents wouldn't be needed. All you need is a system to boot into that has your working library and iPhoto 8.1.2 to work on your books.

     

    There's one think I'm still not sure of.  Do you currently have a working library that contains your books and all your photos?

    If the books are completed or nearly so I'd keep them separate. They are at a size that is small enought to burn to a DVD via the Finder (NOT from inside iPhoto) for archiving.  If you ever wanted to order another book at a later date you can copy the library back from the DVD, open it with iPhoto and order another copy.

    That's why I keep a partition on an EHD with the older version of iPhoto and it's themes so I can order books from there if the theme I've used is not offered with the current iPhoto.  However, if the iPhoto application is too old it can't be used to order books at all.  I believe the cut off point is  iPhoto 6.  It's not supported by the Apple Print store.

    How did you delete the unwanted photos?
