Good Morning Folks,  I recently had my HDD replaced under the Apple scheme.  I restored everything succesfully from time Machine.  However for some reason I was convinced that I needed to reinstall iPhoto 11 (Don't ask).  So I did, now when I open iPhoto  I get a box saying that,


"You can’t open your current photo library using this version of iPhoto."

"You have made changes to your photo library using a newer version of iPhoto.

Do you want to quit and use the latest version of iPhoto, or do you want to create a new photo library?"


But it only gives me a box for "QUIT" I spent hours yesterday cataloguing and culling my library.   I've got all the photos but I don't know how to get back to where I was or why this has happened.  And I really quail at the thought of replicating yesterday's work.  Any help appreciated.  I'm using Snow Lepoard 10.6.8 on iMac 27 and I've installed all the updates this morning.  I don't know what newer version of iPhoto there is other that 11.


I've tried to use time Machine to go back to yesterday but

the 'RESTORE' arrow is greyed out.

All ideas gratefully received.Wilf
