    Hello,

    I hope someone can help me, I am using a imac G5 desktop, running 10.5.8. The current iphoto which is running is 5.0.4, i would like to use a higher version, as i want to be able to do more with my photos, and also to be able to sort photos in to events.
    I have tried using the apple support page thingy, and I have downloaded and tried to upgrade with iphoto 6.0.4 and 7.1.5 both times i got an error message saying that:An eligible iPhoto application was not found in the location /Applications/iPhoto.app.

    what can i do now? can someone help me? :( :( :(

    You can't just download the updates, as they are not the full app ... you need to buy a newer version of iLife.

    No, you need an earlier version:

    iLife '08 should run on your G5:
