    I don't understand why the photos in the book came up blank.  Perhaps you should rebuild the library database file via the Command+Option launch menthod.

    How can I upgrade to iPhoto '11, yet preserve iPhoto '09? for use with these libraries? I did save a copy of '09 on my external drive and a DVD.

    Here's how I did:

     

    1 - move your iPhoto 8 (09) application to a folder in the Applications folder and reanme it "iPhoto 8".

    2 - rename your iPhoto 8 library to "V8 iPhoto Librar"y.

    3 - install iPhoto 9 (11).

    4 - when you want to launch the V8 library double click on the iPhoto 8 application with the Option key held down and select the V8 library in the window that comes up.

     

    5 - when you want to switch back to the V9 library double click on the V9 application and select the V9 library in the window that comes up.  If you forget you'll get a warning that 1 - the library can't be opened with this version of iPhoto or 2 - the library needs to be upgraded.  In that case quit and start again with the Option key held down. 

     

    Note:  I'd check to make sure the themes that you are using in the iPhoto 8 books are available in iPhoto 9.  Otherwise you'll have to change themes.

    Don't replace the themes folder that iPhoto 9 (11) installs.

     

    After installling the new iPhoto check both the HD/Library and your User/Librarhy to see where it installed the themes.  As I recall it installed the themes in the HD/Library location.  If that's what you find then put the Themes folder from iPhoto 8 (09) back where you found it originally, the User/Library/.....  Then launch iPhoto 8 and check the themes.  It's been so long since I've written that tutorial I forgot some of the details.   Getting old.
