PS I am buying Apple - and doing very well with it and expect to continue to do so
What version were you updating from?
There is no mention of the fact that iPhoto11 will lock access to YOUR photo's into an inaccessible directory controlled by Apple (the arrogant sh*ts) meaning there is no way to move or recover individual files.
Well here's to the clueless, bless them everywhere. Your photos are locked into nothing, you just don't know how to use the app. And this has been the way with every version of iPhoto since iPhoto 6. Really. Take a few minutes to learn how to use the app before sounding off. Search the forum for any of the thousands and thousands of posts that tell you how to access your files. Really.
