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.

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?

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…

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.

Crashes frequently when editing photos, especially when using the "De-noise" and "Tint" sliders. It's been very crash-prone ever since version 9.0, and it's becoming frustrating to use. Previous versions have never crashed on me.

This update to 9.2 (I have 9.1.5) shows up as an update at the App Store. But I get this weird "an error has occurred" in the App Store application before I even try to download the update (which the store clearly thinks I should have.)

When I try to do the update...the little iPhoto icon sails down the the dock...and then, just sits there...and if I mouse over the icon it says, "iPhoto — waiting. . ."

Anybody else running into this? Any suggestions? Simple being told "an error has occurred" isn't much help!

Thanks for any feedback or suggestions,
Steve

I updated to the latest 8.0.3 today, midway through working on a slideshow project. Prior to updating I had successfully exported several versions of my project using the same non-DRM-protected mp3 file. After updating, my slideshow has no exported sound. None. I tried AAC, still no sound. Restarted the computer, no sound. Even tried the built in themes, no sound on the exported file. Deleted the ~.plist, restarted the computer, iPhoto opens like new (all libraries intact) but once again, no sound on the exported slideshow.

Frustrating. Tomorrow I pull out my disks and reinstall software, not letting iPhoto update to see if there is any joy in mudville.

I have a G4 Powerbook and recently updated IPhoto to the 5.0.4 version.
On prior IPhoto versions, I had no problems importing pics from my Sony Cybershot digital camera.
Now, IPhoto opens the import screen, knows how many pics there are to import (and I have deleted some to see if it is reading the camera true and it is) but after I click on "import", it gets stuck at that point, tells me it is "importing"...
When I ask it to stop importing, it gets stuck on "stopping".
I also can't eject the device - and have to unplug the USB - then I get the message telling me off for doing that.
Any tips? CHEERS - KW

You probably want to reformat your camera's memory card. You might also want to try repairing running Applejack (which can be found here on MacUpdate).

iPhoto is not a free application like iTunes. What you can download here, is an updater. Not the whole application. You can buy it, together with iMovie, iWeb, iDVD and Garageband for $79. The package is called 'iLife'.
