How easy is it to downgrade from the latest version of iPhoto '08 to iPhoto 6 while keeping the library intact?

Can it be done with a download via Apple's website, or do i need to source a cd from somewhere?

I don't think this is possible since the iPhoto library format changed drastically with iPhoto '08, as compared to iPhoto '06...:(

Can you export all the photos to an external or just the hard drive for example. Remove iPhoto '08 from the mac, use the disks provided with the Mac (if you bought it during Tiger) to reinstall the older version. And reimport all the photos...

Not pretty, don't even know if it's possible and the library won't survive, just the photos...

So basically, any other ideas peeps? ;)

Has anybody else tried this?

User is not happy with iPhoto '08 look/feel and is having silly printing problems, which they did not expect to have on a mac, and wish to go back to what 'just worked' for them...

I want to downgrade too!

I can't stand iPhoto 8.1.1!! Not being able to manually arrange photos in the library? Come on!

If I backup all my files, delete iPhoto 8, and reinstall an older version would that work? Do I need a disk or can I download the older version online?

Please advise! Thanks!
