After upgrading my iPhoto '08 from 7.1.3 to 7.1.4 I have noticed that the geotag info on pictures imported from iPhone 3G and opened in Preview (to use the Location feature) have wrong Longitude, sending my pictures many thousand kilometer to the west. This wasn't an issue in 7.1.3 and still isn't an issue on my MacBook Pro running 7.1.3.

I have reported this to Apple, but while waiting for them to fix this, I would like to downgrade my iMac to 7.1.3. But I do not know how to do this.

I have the 7.1.3 installation package, but when I try to install it tells me that a newer version is already installed. I have also tried moving the 7.1.4 application file from the Applications folder to a temporary folder, but then the installer tells me that "An eligible iPhoto application was not found in the location /Applications."

Does anybody have an idea on how to downgrade to 7.1.3 ? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Unless you can roll back via a back up such as Time Machine, the only way to do this is to completely re-install iPhoto.

    Put the app in the trash.
    Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name

    Re-install and update to 7.1.3

    I do not have an iPhone but geocode my photos with an ATP Photo Finder and I am having no problems - it is possible that your problem is not iPhoto 7.1.4


    PS - what is the Location feature in preview - I am not aware of it

    You can look at the EXIT Lat/Long data in iPhoto by selecting a photo and using the get photo info command (photo menu or right click) and there is a neat iPhoto to Google earth export plug in to show them in google earth
