You are my new best friend. Thank you very much, this works!!!!!
You are and Angel. It works. THANKS
Thank you so much! Apple completely let me down on this. Now I can decide myself whether and when to switch to Photos (or probably something else).
Hi, I tried to download the file, but it doesn't work, probably the link is not active anymore.. can you please help me?
Thank you so much! Muchas Gracias! Funciona correctamente en iMac 27" 2011 con MacOs 10.11.6 El Capitan.
Thank you sooooo much! Made the jump from Snow Leopard to El Capitan for my wife's last generation White Macbook Unibody (2.4ghz) - and she has 400+GB of photos!!....like 50,000 or so, give or take a few.......thousand!
So you can only imagine the hell I was in trying to get "Photos" to accept that old version of iPhoto.....wasn't working at all....did all sorts of gymnastics.....finally read a thread where they said "go find a copy of the last version of iPhoto (which of course Apple doesn't offer)......you guys/gals are my heros! Pretty sure my wife would HATE "Photos" anyway....
It's working on 10.13.1 OS. No idea how you found it. All I see all over internet is people saying that older version of iPhoto will not work on newer OS version. Well, thank you much for your contribution, whatever and however but is working on my 2011 MBP running 10.13.1. Thx again
works for me too!! Thx so much!
Thank you a million! I just bought a new MacBook Pro 2018 and this saved my life.
Un grand merci pour ce téléchargement. Je n'avais plus iPhoto depuis que j'avais réinstallé High Sierra sur mon Mac et Photo ne me satisfait pas.
too beaucoup, 1000+1 thanks
Works beautifully in Sierra 10.12.6. Thank you so much!
I hope this will work, very interested in trying this
This app neded for importing photos from old iPhoto, thank you!
Missing photos after upgrading iPhoto 6 to iPhoto 9.6.1 or Photos 1.5 #
Old Mac running OS X 10.6.8 with iPhoto 6 library containing 5,238 items
Imported data, including iPhoto Library, to new Mac running OS X 10.11.5 and Photos 1.5. via Migration Assistant.
Photos Library displayed only 1,794 photos (through September 2010), even though all photos were found in ~/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary/Masters and ~/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary/Previews.
Deleted Photo Library and iPhoto Library, manually copied iPhoto Library from old Mac again, relaunched both iPhoto and Photos - same result.
Attempting to run iPhoto Library Upgrader 1.1 (which "prepares libraries from iPhoto 7 or earlier so they can be upgraded with the current version of iPhoto") on yet another copy of the original iPhoto Library returned "Your library can open with the current version of iPhoto and does not need to be prepared with this tool."
Rebuilding the iPhoto library on both the old and new Mac (by holding down Command and Option while starting iPhoto, etc) did not help.
Opening yet another copy of the original iPhoto Library in iPhoto Library Manager showed only the same 1,794 photos and misidentified the library as an iPhoto 8 library.
Copied original iPhoto Library to a third Mac running OS X 10.6.8 and iPhoto 6 (all 5,238 items appeared in iPhoto).
Installed iPhoto Library Manager 3.8.6 (for Mac OS X 10.5.8 and iPhoto 7.1.5 and earlier).
iPhoto Library Manager.app > File > Rebuild Library. As Christoph Bartneck explains, "The software has a tool to recover corrupted libraries. But it works differently from Apple’s approach. It starts with a fresh clean library and imports all the photos, including their meta data, such as location, faces, date. It also manages to rebuild albums and folders."
Copied rebuilt iPhoto Library to new Mac running OS X 10.11.5.
Ran iPhoto Library Upgrader 1.1 (which now ran normally intead of returning "Your library can open with the current version of iPhoto and does not need to be prepared with this tool" as above).
Opened the upgraded iPhoto Library in iPhoto 9.6.1, which reported "This photo library needs to be upgraded to work with this version of iPhoto." After the upgrade process, all 5,238 items (including albums, metadata, etc) appeared intact!
Opened Photos.app which imported the entire iPhoto Library successfully.
Obviously you will receive a billion compliments for this brilliance. I used to work magic tricks on PCs back in the day, but switched to MAC because I thought buying was easier & better. Obviously not, and you have cracked their little sneaky attempt to penny push iCloud, etc. So, congratulations on your find, charm & wit. I honestly thank you for your genius/sharing of this solution. Have a fantastic life my friend, live long & prosper & never give up
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having made easily available this path to keep my precious digital photo library when we upgrade our Mac OS X from very old version (Mountain Lion 2011 to a most recent one - High Sierra).
Thanks so much for this. I lost access to 2,400 photos in iPhotos when I changed my operating system from 10.6 to El Capitan. I had to purchase iLife 11 from Ebay to get 9.0, then downloaded upgrade to 9.1, then downloaded upgrade to 9.4, both from Apple. Finally, I was able to download your link to get 9.6, and I can see my photos again at last. Every once in awhile someone goes to the trouble to make a way to do something that seems blocked at every turn; thanks so much for your generous contribution in saving my photos.
Many thanks! very much appreciated! you saved me big time!
Thanks for this, works like a charm. Easily replaced my outdated version of iPhoto on El Cap.
Works perfectly on High Sierra 10.13.6! Thank you so much!!!
