    reinstall iPhoto -  reinstall from the restore disks that came with your computer - do a custom install of bundled software only

    reinstall from the restore disks that came with your computer

    Nothing was said about the Lion install disk - iPhoto does NOT come with any OS upgrade - DVD or App store - it comes as stated on the restore disks that came with your computer  --  or on an iLife disk if you have purchased one

    but since Lion already comes with them, I would like to restore from there, because are upgraded versions.

     

     

    if you downloaded/upgraded to Lion from the app store it won't include iLife '11 , you have to purchase separately iLife'11

     

    Here's what Lion comes with :http://www.apple.com/macosx/apps/

    In fact, I found in the web that you can ask for these apps from the App Store if you haven't required them with the Lion Installation by clicking some "accept" button that I cannot find.

    Only if you just purchased a new mac these come with you new mac,

    If something has been downloaded/installed already on your mac from the App Store, the price tag will be replaced with an Install button in case these have been accidentally deleted

     

    I believe LarryHN is clear on this

    You are incorrect - iPhoto (or any iLife applications)  are on all new Macs and upgrades are sold separately from OS upgrades - neither Lion nor Snow Lepard OS ugrades include iLife apps

     

    If you read the App store description of the Lion software no where does it mention iPhoto - iPhoto simply is not part of Lion and was not a part of SL either)

     

    The solution to your question is very simple and has been given twice now

     

    reinstall iPhoto -  reinstall from the restore disks that came with your computer - do a custom install of bundled software only - or install from purchased iLife disks or from iPhoto purchased from the App store

     

    Now three times

     

    There is no other way

    Just out of curiosity - by uninstall you don't mean removing the apps from the dock right?

    If that is the case, check your applications folder :P

    What ever you say

     

    iLife is seperate and does not come on any OS upgrade - Lion or SL or any other

     

    If you choose to keep beating this dead horse go ahead - you hae the only answer there is - your choice whether you accept it of not

    And it is exactly what it should be - iLife is not part of Lion - ou must reinstall form the original disks or purchased applications (disk or App store)  - what you describing is exactly what happens - and unless you reinstall iPhoto you will not have it since it is not a part of the Lion upgrade
