When Apple executives released the new application called Photos in the spring of 2015, they left open a very short window in which iPhoto fans could download and install version 9.6.1 of iPhoto, which is the end of the line for that application. Apple had apparently adopted a rather arrogant policy in which they were compelling iPhoto users to make the transition to Photos and to the iCloud by locking iPhoto users out of using the latest iteration of iPhoto anymore. How did they accomplish this? In two ways: (1) by making sure that iPhoto before 9.6.1 was not going to launch under the newest Mac OSes; and (2) by removing version 9.6.1, the last update, from the App Store so that it could not be downloaded. It is their game, and you have to play by their rules, they were saying. If you could not manage to download version 9.6.1 while it was still available through the App Store, you were out-of-luck. Too bad for you! Apple fixed things so that version 9.6 was not going to launch under Yosemite, so many iPhoto fans, who did not check in at the App Store to download the final upgrade before the window abruptly closed, got angry and cursed Apple for leaving them in the lurch. They vented their anger all over the Internet, as they repeatedly encountered what appeared to be an error in the App Store application whenever they tried to download the upgrade to version 9.6.1 of iPhoto. When they tried to download the iPhoto update, all they would get was a cryptic message saying that the file was "temporarily unavailable." This frustration went on for about six months. I was among that group who tried, but failed, to download that final upgrade. Well, the frustration is over, because today, as always, I clicked on iPhoto listing in the Updates tab of the App Store, and, to my surprise and delight, the upgrade to version 9.6.1 of iPhoto actually began to download! I just installed it on the Yosemite partition of my Mac Pro, and it launched just fine. The "temporary" freeze-out appears to have ended. Now, all those diehard iPhoto fans—some of whom complained that they were unable to access their treasure trove of images—can get off their knees: their prayers have been answered. However, these humble supplicants should not overlook the lesson: you never know how long the download window will remain open. So, if you want version 9.6.1 of iPhoto, you better grab it while you still can. You just never know if that window will soon crash right on top of your hands.

Just opened my Macbook and wanted to download all the photos i made. for some reason i can't find my iPhoto. all i found was a line up of my photos in a terrible designed program which is not coming close to what i was used to. Why does apple do this? why would you change a perfectly working program to a shit tool like this. Not that i am against change, but this ...seriously?? Please get it back and make a lot of apple users happy.

I just found this site to DL IPhoto to my newer model Macbook Pro. It didn't have Iphoto in it and had to DL PHOTOS. I rarely use this word but I HATE it. Whoever programmed it must have once worked for Microsoft. There is no rhyme or reason to it. I tried every which way to organize my photos from IPHOTO to the new APP to no avail it was horrendous. PLEASE APPLE people "if it ain't broke don't fix it" Improvements are welcome though IF logical. Apple for some reason is becoming less user friendly on some of its Applications sigh.

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!

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.

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…

I've never had much grief with iPhoto. The program keeps the original version of each image in the, duh, "Originals" folder so that nothing gets ruined permanently if you goof up an edit. This is actually a link from the old name of "Originals" to the newer "Masters" folder for those files. Use right or control-click on the iPhoto Library to access the actual directory structure if you are new to the later versions of the system and software.

Why, for crying out loud, when I update a picture in iPhoto the original file is not updated. I suggest that the stupid guys who programmed this awful code will take a course with the guys who programmed iTunes. There, when you update a song, add a cover picture, fix data and so on, the original file is updated. Between horrible iPhoto and terrible Picasa, there is no real good solution to keeping my pictures neatly organized.

As I tweeted earlier today, iPhoto 9.4 on Mountain Lion is among the most unstable and poorly tested apps from Apple in a long time. Clicking on Export kills it. Several times it has started up after normal shutdowns with finding inconsistencies in the database. It is doing a lousy job of posting photos to FaceBook and Flickr (and can sometimes cause a photo to be posted and then deleted when iPhoto does a reverse sync when you click on a FaceBook album icon. It all used to just work, it now just crashes. Big FAIL for Apple on this version.

For years I've used iPhoto without significant issue; then this update comes along... I run my system in 64-bit mode and am having to re-install the OS (10.8-10.8.2) to see if that will address the fact that iPhoto 9.4 will not launch (iPhoto is stating it's only going to run in 32 bit mode now, and I ran it with the exact same setup earlier today without issue in v9.3.2). Many issues show up in Console, including Binary Images problems, LIbrary's no found, for example: Dyld Error Message: Library not loaded: /Library/Frameworks/NyxAudioAnalysis.framework/Versions/A/NyxAudioAnalysis Referenced from: /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/Frameworks/iLifeSlideshow.framework/Versions/A/iLifeSlideshow Reason: no suitable image found. Did find: /Library/Frameworks/NyxAudioAnalysis.framework/Versions/A/NyxAudioAnalysis: mach-o, but wrong architecture /Library/Frameworks/NyxAudioAnalysis.framework/Versions/A/NyxAudioAnalysis: mach-o, but wrong architecture This issue has occurred on both my 2010 iMac (10,1 version) and my 2011 Mac mini.. The prior version if iPhoto worked fine. So a suggestion, steer clear of 9.4 for the moment.

I have used iPhoto for quite a while now without any problems. The latest 9.3 version is causing problems when uploading to Flickr or Facebook. It get's into a loop during the upload and will freeze. Once the partially uploaded album is then deleted and the is upload restarted it then goes through. On average I need between 2 and 3 attempts to upload an album containing 23 pictures. Stability wise there is certainly work to be done!

I think Apple has lost it on iPhoto. With increasing size of the library, Apple is struggling to keep iPhoto fast and reliable. When you feel you library is corrupt, there is no reliable way to fix it. By running some maintenance script, you often end up losing some information. Also, why would they think it is a good idea to keep sending photos by email in front so you cannot do anything until the email is sent? Unbelievable. Also, I found I have to let iPhoto do its thing for a few minutes before I can relatively work on anything without going crazy.

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

iPhoto is the best choice organizing photos on the Mac. I have 14k pictures and it is enough responsive on my 3-years-old iMac, though more advanced features in photo editing would be welcomed. The UI is awesome. The Books are wonderful, I've printed many and the quality was impressive – i really felt like a profi (that's why I switched to Aperture then :-) And I can also use it to make super slideshows for YouTube!

I wish Apple would create an organizer app for graphics in general -- not just photos. Right now, iPhoto is only great if you use it as a personal photo library. Meaning, you actually shoot the photos you add to iPhoto. If you just collect photos from all over the places -- websites, friends, etc. -- iPhoto is just not up to that. Not to mention, it is the worst app for collecting graphics, in general, like drawings, paintings, or illustrations. They all get mixed with files that actually are photos, they all get their own messed up events. Not to mention that iPhoto tries to face-recognize files even though they are not pictures. I still can't find any rational explanation as to why Apple doesn't allow to deactivate the face recognition system per album/event basis. And the event system itself is the worst if you want to use iPhoto for something even slightly beyond just personal photo library. Now to the UI flaws: - Keywords are a pain to add. You have to click so many times that you will probably fall asleep before you get to the actual keyword adding. - It's impossible to add a description to several photos at once. The field just disappears if you have more than one photo selected. Another mind-boggling illogical thinking of Apple. - It's impossible to add a face to multiple photos at once. Yes, you have to click through all your 1200, or whatever, photos to add a face to them. Even though you only have the same person on all of them. Another mind-boggling illogical thinking of Apple. - In the "Recents" you can only set the "Last [time period]" as low as 1 month. Really, Apple? I'm adding thousands of new photos a month. How am I supposed to find something in there? Why not allow me to set the "Last" to a day? What will happen if you give me such power? Am I going to crash the world's economy by setting the filter to a day? Another mind-boggling illogical thinking of Apple.

Good, but there is an issue with a black screen on MPEG-4 Videos. I would like to see an option on iPhoto to Set as Poster Frame just as in Aperture, so you can choose a picture frame to visually identify the video without having to click on play. I think this shall be an standard feature on iPhoto just as it is on Aperture. It is annoying and ugly to have all MPEG-4 videos on iPhoto masked with a black screen.

I've been using iLife and iPhoto since the suite first came out and like a lot about the applications, including the multi-functionality of iPhoto, how it's an integrated solution for importing, storing, organizing, emailing and printing my photos, and for creating cards and books. That said, I really don't like this version. The interface and usability seems to be a step backwards. I have problems scrolling through my long list of rolls as it jumps around uncontrollably most of the time. And I don't like how the escape key no longer works. But there is one thing that I hate. In the previous versions of iPhoto, I could create some great looking cards and print them out on my printer. This functionality has been stripped out of iPhoto. Now we are forced to BUY cards through Apple's service. This stinks of petty greed.

All in all the software works well for me. 5 stars until then. But ... Up to version 9.1.1 I was able to scroll with my Logitech mouse (MX 700) still in iPhoto. This works no longer since update 9.1.2. Permissions repaired, no improvement. I thought a recent update (9.1.3) would remedy this issue (I'm the only one with th problem?). Going back to second last version. 1 star off for that (I don't know, is that a problem made by Apple or made by Logitech).

After I've changed disk on my MB Pro, and reinstalled OS X, I haven't bother to install this crap again. iPhoto is getting worse and worse, even after those "minor" updates :( Now the Picasa seems to be great app, but has troubled facebook plugin (with more uploading photos it doesn't work)... Now I regret, that i didn't make a copy of iPhoto 8 before I sold it with my old MB. :-(

9.1.2 has supports Outlook 2011 as an email client. You do have to go to the preferences and manually select Outlook, even if it appears this is already selected, but it does now work. If they can fix the silly fullscreen mode so that it actually provides a benefit over the windowed mode, like the previous version, I may actually be able to use iPhoto again without constantly being annoyed.

A major step backward, that's what iPhoto 9 is compared to iPhoto 8. The biggest "improvement" is that iPhoto now creates a duplicate for every image that is edited in an external program such as Photoshop Elements. Truly annoying, because the edited image doesn't have any link to the original version. Previously iPhoto 8 saved the version edited in Photoshop Elements back, maintaining the link to the original. Thereby, if things went wrong one could always go back. Now I've got to keep three images on my harddrive: the original, the iPhoto modified version (both shown as ONE image in iPhoto), and the version that was edited with an external editor (shown as a separate image in iPhoto). Now, THAT is truly annoying.

HOW IN THE HELL DO YOU TAKE OUT THE KEYWORD FUNCTIONALITY?? Keywords should display under each image. It's a damn bug.. It's nauseating that you haven't fixed it since release. I bought this software and downgraded back because I got sick of waiting for a fix.. Another new release. Another non-fix. Shame.

While I did like the automatic import of images from my digital camera with iPhoto, packaging the application as a photo organizer (distinguishing old and new photos) is less convincing than providing more options for image editing. Apple's philosophy seems to be that iTunes organizes and syncs songs, so iPhoto should so the same thing with images. As a result, I find I'm avoiding contact with iPhoto entirely. Give me more hardcore photo editing capabilities, instead.

Horrible, money lost. Don't buy it, use the old but better iPhoto 09. Fullscreen?? Ah Ah ah... No possibility to see photos in fullscreen without un-useless toolbar. No toolbar hiding.. No possibility to zoom-in zoom-out in fullscreen using the multitouch, no possibility to compare photos in fullscreen without toolbar... What kind of fullscreen is?? Downgraded to version 09.

Wow, Apple allows me to use external mail software to mail photos from iPhote. This is very kind of you, steve. I found it very irritating, that this wasn't possible at first. I think Apple is testing user reaction towards more closed systems. So this update is welcome. Thanks for giving me choice, but why take away choice from the user in the first place?

Useless...... still not remembering the "upgrade". I push the UPGRADE button and it does something, but is it finished when the bar has disappeared, and the spinning cirkel takes over? I have waited for hours, activity-monitor says there nothing going on. I can quit, but I can't emty my trash in iPhoto, and it's all over when I start again.... ??? Why is Apple not taking us serious? "In rare cases"..... I'm so disappointed.

No problems here. Working like a dream, opens and responds quicker than before. Love the new look and the full screen option is great. Having a bit of bother stopping the slideshows always playing that annoying piece of supplied guitar music though, rather than the music I choose. Probably my fault- any hints?

This is a mess. I can open my library, expand a single photo, then when I try to go back to library I watch my screen, and computer completely freeze. I have to shut down with the button on the back of the iMac, then restart. I have done the restart with the CMD-Option button pressed and done the rebuilds and permissions. Nada! This could have been averted by the Usability Engineering people testing this product across the entire spectrum of Intel Based Macs from the beginning to today's Macs. Obviously asleep on the job!

Bugs may not come often from Apple... ...but when they do, they often involve rather nasty bits like data loss apparently. Remember Snow Leopard guest account? If this is 'Back to the Mac' then Apple, please stop before I loose everything. Do it properly or don't at all. Data loss... once is a mistake, twice is sloppy work.

I am highly disappointed with current release of iLife mostly because of untouched iWeb, but also with changes to iPhoto. For a start - iLife '11 apps are still 32-bit only. This should be a real shame for Apple for releasing such memory hungry applications with ancient technology... Also, iPhoto'11 looks "new", but in fact all what changed are new slideshow themes and new ways to socialise your ugly face photos on Facebook or Flickr. iPhoto'11 is just rebuild interface of previous version with "better" full screen mode, which in fact gives you SMALLER preview of photo you are working on than it was before! With iPhoto'09 all tools were located on sliding in/out toolbars. Now it is changed to non resizable bar to the right of your screen. There is no way to turn off distracting buttons and sliders. Amazing, how nice idea can be done so wrong. Secondly - there is single change to photo editing tools. Not single new/enhanced effect! All editing is untouched comparing to previous version (only with changed UI) In my opinion paying $49 for couple of new slideshow themes and new books formats (which I can't order as Apple do not sell to my country at all) is just pointless. If you are not ordering books, or are not slideshow heavy maker - just stick to iPhoto'09 and spend that money on anything else.

i don't understand how can people use this software. in my home i have several macs, and a central file server that holds all the family photos, this enables us all to share them over the network. iphoto does not allow you to do that. i cant believe that apple did not handle this as part of the capsule or something...

iPhoto has a long ways to go before becoming a great organizer. Events seemed like a great idea when they were released in iPhoto 08 but the trouble with them is that you can't put events inside of other events. The reason this is such a problem is that after you load so many thousands of photographs there becomes to many events and it becomes cumbersome to sludge through them all. Their solution to this problem in 08 was the add the ability to merge events together. When this happens everything becomes one large event, it doesn't maintain the groups of the events you merge together. I guess I can forgive them not totally thinking this feature though in iPhoto 08 but nearly a year and a half later they should have got this right by now. Adding events inside of events is a lot more important than even features like faces and places. Doing a search is also limiting from the search box. You can't set multiple search criteria at a time like in the Finder or Adobe Bridge. In other words I can't say show me the files with these keywords that were taken during this time period and have this rating. I can only do one at a time. Yes I can do this with a smart folder but I would like to have option not to since I don't always want to come back to the search later. Posting to Facebook and Flickr only gives you access to some of the features on those sites. You can't enter in all the information about the pictures from directly with in iPhoto (captions for photos, who can see the pictures, what should be the key photograph for an album etc.) Also iPhoto doesn't pull the previous albums you created back in to iPhoto so you can only view some of your albums not all of them. If you ever have to move your information to a new hard drive down the road all the work you did to put together slide shows won't come across with the rest of the photos. I found this out the hard way as a spent a lot of time setting up manual Ken Burns effects so that they would pan from one particular area of a photograph to another. Now the only way a can access them is to boot back and forth between my old hard drive. It is a good thing I happen to have two drives in my machine or I would have to recreate them. I imagine this is what you would have to do if you had a laptop. The recent area on the sidebar only shows the last event you look at. This is ok but I would like to see a history of the last several events I viewed. The last 12 months area doesn't organize those photos by events so you just gets this massive number of photos which isn't very convenient. Keep in mind that these features I am talking about are not even pro features they are all basic features that should be available for everyone.

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. iMac 24" 2.8GHz/4GB RAM 10.5.7

NO METRIC SIZES WHEN PRINTING PHOTOS! IPHOTO IS NOT COMPLIANT WITH EU MARKET AND NOT SUITABLE FOR EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS AT ALL!!! I tried using custom sizes but there is a bug that causes improper orientation of photos. I think EU should come up with regulation that all software is compatible with metric system before any product is allowed to the market.

As much as I've always liked iPhoto, and have used it for may generations now, the '09 version isn't working well for me. For the cost of iLife, it's undoubtedly a very good value media manager, and is still far better than either Picasa or Expressions. It's also worth remembering that this is a 'consumer' level application, not a Pro app, so in the right context it is one of the best image managers there is. (I also think it's unfair to knock down iPhoto for poor Raw format support - this is part of the OS, and affects anything that uses Apple Raw support, including Aperture). However, there are some niggles for me. My biggest is very poor editing performance with Raw images. I use Olympus E510 pics, at about 10MB each, and editing them in iPhoto is actually pretty painful. If I do some quick adjustments, and move to the next image, iPhoto will eventually pause, sometimes for as much as two minutes. I can alleviate this by watching my iStat menu for processor usage, and waiting until it drops before moving on - this still takes a good 20 seconds per image though. Fortunately I'm not a Pro, so it isn't critical. As others have mentioned, the 'Faces' feature isn't quite there yet, and it seems to work less well as more faces are added. I'd like a function to disable the features altogether.

Although I cannot abide to praise the ease of use of iPhoto, the truth is that Apple doesn't seem to care for some clients at all. This software is out for almost 6 months, and so is the Panasonic Lumix 3 camera which is a fairly popular camera, still, after all this time and after 2 updates, still no support for RAW mode in this camera. I mean, is it that difficult to add a library to the program that is already made and that gives the desired functionality? Adobe did it in a bit more than 1 month in their software ... Apple is making us wait for more than 6 months. Also, as interesting and innovative as the face recognition may seem, the truth is that is practically always wrong. All the faces need manual checking and tagging.

DANGER - WILL ROBINSON - DANGER! The last (what is it?) 2 version of iPhoto, Running on a 2GHz (white) iMac, strip ALL INFORMATION above (early count) 154 characters from any information linked to your images. THIS IS SERIOUS. I log LOTS of data when I pull references from the Web, for example, for copyright reasons - links, notes, etc. I've lost ALL but the first 154 characters on ALL FILES (yes, I add a lot of data) and this means (usually) the LINK itself as I tend to put this last. APPLE - WHAT GIVES??? If this has happened to any of you I HOPE you have a very recent full library data backup? Luckily mine is only maybe a week old, but for some people, I fear, this will be disastrous. The new version does NOT fix this problem, and still truncates. I hope Apple is NOT stripping our functionality in order to further sales of Aperture? That would me a MicroSoft tactic. This latest faux pas is certainly inexcusable at any rate. This is NOT the Apple software we've come to know -AND TRUST! So far this problem does not appear to have affected my iPhoto data on a new (last series) Mac Pro (Quad-Dual Core). Thank God! #$()&)@~#$()_#%$U!_(#$@~_#

ugh, this program is so bloated and slow and im on an iMac G5 running at 2 ghz! Honestly, i'd be happy with less stupid greeting card and .mac fixes that nobody uses and more stability/speed improvements because how it is right now is unacceptable for the money spent. also, albums/events are great.. but i like viewing all my pictures at once like it used to be.. anyone know how to do that? or did apple screw that up too?

This iteration of iPhoto, while having a number of new 'gee whiz' features -- also suffers from the great 'dumbing down' that other users are complaining about with iMovie and iDVD. My gripes are here: http://expatleo.wordpress.com/2007/08/28/iphoto-7-drops-n-up-printing-as-a-feature-dumb/ I also list the workarounds to get around this so-called 'enhancement'. C'mon Apple. Bring back N-Up and real contact sheets. I would give iPhoto 6 4.5 stars, and at this point recommend it over iPhoto 7.0x for at least the next couple months.

From MacInTouch.com: "The folks at Unsanity may finally have unravelled the mystery of randomly-disastrous Apple software updates: Shock and Awe: How Installing Apple's Updates can Render Your Mac Unbootable and How You Can Prevent it ... When you see the "Optimizing System Performance" phase of a software update, Mac OS X is really updating prebinding. Updating prebinding has a very, very nasty bug in it (look at _dyld_update_prebinding). If multiple processes are updating prebinding at the same time, then it is possible for a system file to be completely zero'd out. Basically, all data in the file is deleted and it is replaced with nothing. This bug is usually triggered when updating Mac OS X and every update to Mac OS X has the potential to render your system unbootable depending on if the "right" file is deleted or not. It's triggered during the "Optimizing System Performance" phase of installing an update. This phase is actually just running update_prebinding. If you launch an application that links to libraries that are not yet prebound, there is a chance one of those files will be zero'd out as dyld automatically redoes the prebinding on that file. I've been tracking this particular bug for about 18 months now. Most of the real "random" failures reported on various Mac OS X "troubleshooting" sites after a user has installed an Apple software update are actually manifestations of this bug. By real I mean not imagined problems or ones that have been there for a very long time but the user is just now noticing it and artificially connecting the cause to the recent update (it's called Pareidolia). Yes, this nasty prebinding bug has been reported to Apple and yes, it is 100% reproducible if you want to reproduce it. Every single time you install an update to Mac OS X whether it be an iTunes update, a QuickTime update, an update for daylight saving time, a security update, an Airport update, or an actual Mac OS X update, you can be hit by this bug. In order to prevent yourself from being smacked in the face by this bug, follow this simple rule: When "Optimize System Performance" appears during the update process do not touch your computer and definitely do not launch any applications. Just back away from your computer box as if it were a swarm of bees. Yes, it does mean that if you install the Mac OS X 10.4.9 update, you may get hit by the bug."
