BEWARE: iPhoto 9.5 removes the Home Sharing Feature! No, no, no Apple! Why did you kill the Home Sharing feature?

With smaller SSDs in our Macs, and no storage in our ATV2, we need to locally share a Master library from a Mac with a higher storage capacity. I don't what to use slow and limited internet services like iCloud and Photo Streams to do this. Did Apple remove Home Sharing to make us pay more for an expanded iCloud storage - me thinks so!

Also, why did they replace the search field with a stupid search button that when clicked just expands into the search field? Pointless animation. Likewise, when will they bring the small floating Info pane back instead of forcing us to use up all the screen real estate on the left and ultimately see less of our images?

Finally, I so miss the fast, brilliant old Keyword Manager by Bullstorm for iPhoto... but that stopped working a while ago.

I really wish there was a decent alternative to this degraded iPhoto as they have degraded Aperture as well!

$15? Don't be so cheap, Apple. Make it free and leave Aperture as the paid upgrade.

I know that you'll be all over me, but it has to be said - iPhoto sucks ! I migrated my MBP to a new retina MBP - everything migrated smoothly (the entire computer, even ADOBE CS5.5 with database and everything) EXCEPT iPhoto. My entire database is ruined and the associations between the thumbnails and the actual pictures are gone. I tried to rebuild the database with iPhoto internal command as well as with Fat Cat - to no avail.

Just copy the iPhoto Library from your backup and open it…you do have a backup…right?

Mikaelf, thanks for the tip. I did try to copy the DB from my previous computer (tried a couple of times, from two time machines HDs too). The problem was, in fact, that iPhoto ruined its own DB on the old MAC (and it was "time machined" like that), but when I launched iPhoto for the first time on the new MAC the problems popped out. Turned out that some of the videos in the old MAC were stored as ghost files residing in limbo (so they would play on the old MAC, but the link with these ghosts was broken after the migration). The problem is the odd and unstable procedure according to which this terrible software stores the files in billions of folders, and the DB management is unable to keep track of all these files.

What did you do to try to fix the problem? Know about these methods? http://ilifehelp.com/tutorials/iPhoto/rebuild/How.to.rebuild.repair.iPhoto.html

I can't use it in OS X 10.8. It said it needs 10.8.2 or higher one.

If you're already on 10.8, why not update to 10.8.2?

VP-charlotte

Seriously, I would like to update to 10.8.2, but I don't know why it can't update in app store. In store, it isn't able to update. It shows there is nothing to update. If you know, can you help me?

Huh, that's really odd. Try manually downloading the updater from here http://macupdate.com/app/mac/41879/apple-os-x-mountain-lion and see if that does the trick

It's very nice for you to give me a suggestion,I’ll have a try. If you mind me suppose a question——the OS 10.8 exists copycat one?

VP-charlotte
+0

I’m so puzzled, because the manual updater is not able for my computer, and it said——it just can be fit with the 10.8.1 or later. Dose that mean 10.8 can't update by it? It's normal?

I apologize, I should have pointed out you'll have to use the combo updater that is located in the "Related Links" section of that page.

VP-charlotte

OK,u are so nice! I will try it. But just now, I downloaded a 10.8.1 updater, and it can't be fitted. I guess that is the same reason you mentioned.

VP-charlotte
+0

that's so bad, it still can't be work. It says——update combined can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for the update. That is same like which be mentioned when I want to update 10.8.1?_?

VP-Charlotte, sounds like you are using a pre-release version or something, probably downloaded illegally from somewhere.
Just buy a real copy of Mountain Lion on the Appstore and you'll be all set.

I have used iPhoto for years, however I am just in the process of going back to sort my photos in the Finder. It's just taking too much time to keep my stuff in order with iPhoto. In the beginning, iPhoto is a nice app, everything looks polished and handy, but if you are a long-time-user and you've had to rebuild your library several times after many upgrades, you start loosing hope that Apple get's this right at some point… Apple seems to be more interested in presenting new features (to attract new buyers) than maintaining the app. Most features look great in the commercial-like videos, but in reality they don't really work. The duplicate-creation of iPhoto is terrible, especially if you use an iPhone – and by deleting duplicates, you always run danger of deleting the wrong ones (even with the specialised duplicate remover apps. Actually it is quite telling about iPhoto that those apps even exist). Another really bad thing is that iPhoto can completely mess up date and time of your photos. So after all, I can recommend iPhoto to order prints and photo books, and for slideshows. However the organisation and especially the import of files I wouldn't hand over to it. If you still do, and you have many pictures, you should have more than one library, otherwise iPhoto can become very slow. Anyway, I would love this app, if it would work as advertised…

OK, after all, I recommend GraphicConverter as iPhoto replacement.

lemon-kun, I agree with you that there is not much logic in the way iPhoto organizes the photos (I wrote so below). I am not sure that GC (which I have) is the right replacement.

Useless when half of m previous library photos can't be edited. Asked to make a duplicate, but that's impossible because they don't exist any more.
