    What happens to iLife9 when iLife11 is installed
    1. do they both coexist in the system or is 9 deleted by 11?
    2. if they both coexist whats the purpose?
    3. how can 9 be deleted before 11 is installed?
    4. do the settings in iPhoto and the photo organization (and other apps) pass on to the newer 11th version?

    iLife 09 is replaced by iLife 11.

    Remember to run Software Update before you use iPhoto 11.

    iPhoto 11 has a bug in which it may deletes your photos unless you update it. The chance of it happening is rather small, only a small amount of users were effected by it, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

    I have done this, and also upgraded to iPhoto 11, but I now have a problem that the small multicoloured Mac version of the "HourGlass" comes up at regular intervals and the whole program hangs. :( Sometimes it comes back, but often I have to kill the process.

    iPhoto9 was stable as a rock.

    Have I don't anything wrong?

    I did the following:

    - Ran Software update
    - Installed iPhoto11 default settings
    - Ran Software update (iPhoto update)

    I mostly get problems when making cards and photo albums. It just stops responding.

    Is it easy to revert to iPhoto 9?

    iLife 11 is the worst rendition of Life yet. It's the most buggy and unstable pile of crap made by Apple. Downgrading is easy. Delete the iLife Apps and then insert your iLife 09 disk and install. Worked a treat for me

    The only problem is, is that your iPhoto library will now be incompatible with iPhoto 09. You will need to either rebuild it manually or use an earlier version from any backups you have.

    Thanks! Do you think there is any chance Apple might fix the issues, or is downgrading the only real option?

    Since Apple have only recently released iLife 11, there is plenty chance for more updates with fixes in the future. However, at the moment, unless you can live with the bugs in 11, either getting something like Aperture or downgrading is the only option.

    by saying bugs, what do you mean exactly, can you tell us what an iLife11 user may encounter in real... life? :D
