I currently have iLife installed on my Snow Leopard computer. If I do a Clean Install of Lion from a USB drive will iLife be on my Mac? If not am I able to install my copy that came with Snow Leopard?
I'll have to look over what I have, but you are saying that Snow Leopard came with an Applications DVD that would have iLife 09, or would there be an applications DVD that came with my iMac (which came with Leopard)?
I did confirm that I have the Applications DVD that came with my iMac. I think it is iLife 09. I'm probably going to upgrade to iPhoto 11. I have that on my new MBA but never had it on my iMac. I use my iMac for all my photos and my MBA just to view them through home sharing.
I have my iPhoto 09 library backed up on an external hard drive. After I do the clean install of Lion should I first install iLife 09 and copy over the iPhoto Library before downloading iPhoto 11, or can I just buy iPhoto 11 and then copy over the library? Will iPhoto 11 recognize the library from 09 if there was no previous version of the software on the computer or is there a conversion that happens first?
Thanks, although I did read some more current reviews and it does seem that many people are unsatisfied with the upgrade to iLife 11. I'm not starting to think I should stick with iLife 09 (which I'll mainly use for iPhoto).
I installed the applications install disc that came with my MBP, and I have iMovie, idvd, and iWeb all working. However iPhoto will not launch at all still. Has anyone been able to fix this problem?
Hmm, I am do not know anything about reading those kinds of things, but here is what happens, hopefully it can help you:
If it helps at all, I tried to follow these directions since I seem to be having the same problems, and I realized idvd is having the same problem
however I do not see any pkg file with 'iPhoto' in it. There are a number of files with 'ilife' but nothing with iPhoto or idvd
Try re-installing iPhoto then. I'm not sure why it won't launch. Sorry I was not much help. Sometimes the quickest solution is just to reinstall. Or wait until others come up with another solution
You did try the simple thing of deleting the iPhoto .plist from preferences?
