Currently Being ModeratedJun 2, 2006 1:12 PM (in response to Niku)There are no such things as "iPhoto downloads" (well, there is one for iPhoto 2). Subsequent versions of iPhoto are bundled as part of the iLife suite of applications, and can be purchased directly from the Apple Store on-line (or from your favorite Apple software reseller).
Fabulous package -- buy iPhoto, and get iMovie, Garage Band, iWeb, and one or two others thrown in for free.
Your questions can be answered in greater detail in the iPhoto 6 discussion forums. In particular, make sure your system meets the minimum hardware requirements for iLife '06 before you spend the 80 (or so) dollars.Bondi iMac (rev.B), 500 MHz HARMONi CPU, Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 2, 2006 1:06 PM (in response to Niku)Hi, Niku. iPhoto 2 was the last version that Apple gave away, other than bundling newer versions with the purchase of certain new Macs. To upgrade beyond 2.x, you must buy iLife. For iPhoto 6, buy iLife '06. Intermediate steps are unnecessary; iPhoto 6 will be a completely new installation. iLife also includes iDVD, iMovie and Garageband. They may or may not interest you, but the only way to obtain any of these apps is by buying iLife and getting them all.TiBook/1Ghz/512M; PTProG3/500MHz/768M, Mac OS X (10.3.9), film & flatbed scanners, projector, graphics tablet, laser & photo printers

Your answer reminded me that I still had some CD-ROMs that I had never used. iLife '04 was among them, and I'm going to install it. 04 is not 06, but it's got to be better than 02. In any event, it's free, and I'm going to give it a try. Hey, I might even install some other disks that are lying around. David Pogue makes it easy, or at least easier than many do.
Thanks for your help.iMac DV (Special Edition), Mac OS X (10.3.9)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2006 10:21 AM (in response to Brie Fly)I don't remember reading your comments before. Either I didn't give them sufficient attention, or I never knew that they had been posted (I wish this site still informed posters when their postings have been answered). In any event, I did what you warned me against: I bought iPhoto 6 without finding out what the requirements were. Unfortunately, one of the requirements was OS 10.4, which I don't have. I guess I'll have to wait until I buy my next iMac, because I'm not going to buy OS 10.4 now. Thanks for attempting to warn me, anyway. Oh, there was one interesting thing I found. I found two iPhoto discs in with my OS X discs. I think one of them was for CDs and one for DVDs (I don't that understand either). Anyway, neither of them worked. I can't remember what the computer said, but it acknowledged my attempt to download iPhoto, but said I couldn't do it for some reason or other.

# Macintosh computer with a PowerPC G4, PowerPC G5, or Intel Core processor; 733MHz or faster for iDVD
# 256MB of RAM, 512MB recommended
# Mac OS X v10.3.9 or v10.4.3 or later; v10.4.4 recommended

Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2006 2:28 PM (in response to Giles)Actually you may have fallen foul of the iLife 06 installer which apparently prevents it installing on a G3. However if you look in the iPhoto6 forum it has some info. about using iPhoto6 on a G3. SHould work OK.iMac DV 450MHz, 640MB, 20GB HD, Airport Xtreme, Mac OS X (10.3)
