9.4.3 won't run on Mavericks, that's why there's a 9.5 update.

Ah. I read on the forums that 9.4.3 *would* run on Mavericks, so I was trying this too.
What is the current solution for people who want to share photos between two different versions of iphoto, then?

Frankly, there isn't one that I know of.

Thanks for the fast reply. What a drag to hear that this isn't going to be possible. Well, thank you for trying to help anyway!

Actually iPhoto 9.4.3 will run on Mavericks. I've running it as I repsond. The following screenshot shows the iPhoto 9 versions that will not run on Mavericks:
To downgrade to 9.4.3 follow this iPhoto Library Manager tutorial: Fat Cat Software - iPhoto Library Manager Help - Downgrading a library to an earlier version of iPhoto

I shall stand corrected and apologise to the OP.

Thank you for this info. I still need just a little clarification, sorry.
Here's the deal: see, this is a brand new Air and it has no photos on it. I have no need to downgrade the library since there are zero photos here. I just want to do two things:
1) Uninstall 9.5 (drag it from the app folder to the trash, got it)
2) Reinstall 9.4.3 <- this is what I can't do, as stated in more detail above.
I simply can't get through the install of 9.4.3 (or any earlier version) since each version is considered an upgrade.
Checking out the fatcat software link you attached above doesn't really apply to me, I think, since it seems to be geared to people with actual photo libraries, instead of a brand new machine. Also, this line is really confusing to me: "You will want to be running iPhoto Library Manager on the machine that has the older version of iPhoto you want to convert the library to."
See, my issue is that I can't install the older version of iPhoto!
I remain very grateful for your time, both Terence and Old Toad. This is a very helpfu process and I am hopeful for the outcome.

You need an installer that will give you 9.4.3. In your step 2 above you were trying to use an updater. That neds a base application to update.
Do you have an iLife 11 install disk?
Have you tried just copying the iPhoto app from the other machine (might not work but worth a pop)

Unfortunately, no. It came preinstalled and I guess everything was overridden when I upgraded to mavericks.
Is there a downloadable original installer you could point me to? As you saw, all I'm able to find on apple.com is the upgrades...
Currently Being ModeratedNov 21, 2013 5:29 AM (in response to ashaitar)
No there is no downloadable installer that will bring you back to there.

This is incorrect as of today. 9.4.3 will not work on Mavericks. I have 9.4.3 installed and I recieve the following error message when I attempt to open iphoto.
"To open it, you must upgrade to the latest version of iPhoto."
None of the previous iphoto 9 versions work on Mavericks, even when installed from the iLife 11 DVD and upgraded with the consumer software images.

Stating that 9.4.3 works is not generally true and more specifically, does not address the problem encountered by the original poster. If you have a way to install iPhoto 9.4.3 and have it work, I personally would love to see it. This is the message that iphoto shows me when I try launch iphoto 9.4.3 in Mavericks.
I should also point out that just because your App icon doesnt show the crossed circle, this does not mean that the App will launch succesfully. Like your App icon, my icon does not show the crossed circle, yet I can not launch 9.4.3 in Mavericks.
I await your instructions.
