Can I update iPhoto from version 8.1.2 to 9 or higher versionfor free?

Is your profile signature "Mac OS X (10.6.8)" still current? With that MacOS X version you can upgrade to iPhoto 9.2.x. Only, the iPhoto version 9.5.1 currently sold at the AppStore requires MacOS X 10.9.x. If you you are not running Mavericks, you could try to buy a boxed retail version of iLife '11. That will have a compatible early iPhoto 9.x version.

  • I can't update iPhoto from 8.0.1 to newer version

    Hello everybody.
    I have the iPhoto 09 version 8.0.1 (397), and when I start it, check the updater and show that there's updater to do. Click to update, and then when the software updater check the updater it say me that there isn't any newer version.
    I'm trying to install it manually (8.0.2 and even 8.1 version) and it says that this updater is't for my version of iPhoto
    What can I do?
    Thanks !

    Victor
    Welcome to the Apple user to user assistance forums
    Have you "cleaned up" your applications folder by moving iPhoto into a folder?
    That will do it - all of the iLife applications need to be loose in the Applications folder - at the root lever - where they were originally installed for the updater to work - move them back and they will update (8.1.0 is the latest)
    And always backup before updating

  • Can't update iphoto from the apps store

    I purchased iphoto from the apps store (version 9.1.1) to replace/upgrade the version that came with my 2008 imac, but have been unable to update to the current version 9.1.5. When I attempt to update (and the apps store tells me there is an update available for my purchase) a dialog box tells me to log into the account which i used to purchase the program notwithstanding that I am logged into the account.  Any suggestions as how to solve this problem?

    I imagine if you delete the iPhoto app, you should be able to download and install the current version from the app store without problem. The conflict is probably because the version you purchased is disc based.
    Prior to doing this, make sure you backup your hard drive so that you can restore in case you accidentally delete something that you need.

  • Can't update appletv from version 4.3(2557)

    I have tried using "update software", reset and restore , no luck . I can't see mirroring option on iPad, though AirPlay does work.

    It is a free update, most users are getting it without a problem however some users seem to be having difficulty.
    First thing the update is only for system running Mavericks. HA=ave you upgraded the OS yet?
    If you have is Aperture installed in the systems Applications folder and named Aperture. These two points are important for Software Update to do its thing.
    Have you tun Software Update and update from the Mac App Store. In my case it did not show up in the App Store until I had updated from 3.4.5 to 3.5.
    Some users have had success getting the upgrade by uninstalling Aperture, reinstalling from their original media and then running Software Update. Remember if you try this you will need your serial numbers for Aperture so make sure you have them before trying it.

  • Updated system from 10.5.8 to 10.7.5 . Can I update iPhoto from 7.1.5 to iCloud usable version /

    I have recently upgraded my Macbook from 10.5.8  to 10.7.5 and would like to update my Iphoto to a version which will allow me to stream photos from my Macbook to my other device, which is an Ipad mini IOS 7.1 . What is the procedure ?

    There is only one way.
    Buy the Snow Leopard retail DVD from http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard
    Install SL over the existing OS - it will only replace system files and won't touch your user stuff or applications (But you should make a backup first in case of glitches).
    When you've installed SL it will be 10.6.3. You need to update that to 10.6.8 with the combo installer from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399

  • Trying to update iPhoto from version 2, missing versions on Apple site

    I am trying to move up to the most current version of iPhoto that I am allowed. You can see the versions of the related software that is dependent for this update in my details.
    The earlist version that can find is 4.0.3 but when I download this and try to install it, the installation fails and I am warned that the install cannot find either version 4.0 or 4.0.1 of iPhoto.
    There are apparently no versions below version 4.0.3 so I am stuck despite the fact that I am owed versions up to 5 or 6.
    Any help would be greatly appreciatted.

    Garrett: Apple does not pretend that iLife is free, nor is it included when you buy an Apple operating system. iLife is included with the purchase of some new Macs, but any subsequent upgrades must be paid for, just as upgrades to any other commercial software must be paid for. (I received the full version of Photoshop 2.5 bundled with a $1200 scanner about 12 years ago, but you'd better believe Adobe doesn't think that entitles me to free upgrades of Photoshop for life.)
    You apparently got iPhoto 2 free, no strings attached. Apple isn't forcing you to upgrade it. It's not a professional tool, and never pretended to be one. There are equal or better alternatives available quite inexpensively for many of the purposes that iPhoto serves. The same is true of iCal and the Address Book. People who like iLife like it because it integrates many functions well. Those who don't care about that integration or about some of those functions often see iLife as a bundle of less-than-professional apps in which capabilities that are of no interest inflate the cost of those that are useful. Is the glass half full or half empty? You have to decide for yourself, and it sounds as though you have. But Apple hasn't been dishonest with you: the fact that you needed to buy iPhoto 4,5, or 6 if you wanted to upgrade to 4.x, 5.x or 6.x was right there in the System Requirements for each of the updaters, and of course you are perfectly free to go on using the software you got for free without upgrading it.

  • Can't update Aperture from version 3.4.5 to 3.5 without paying full price.

    I read about the new Aperture update to version 3.5 but it does not appear in regular software updates. When I found it in the App Store it is listed at $79.99. I already own Aperture and currently have version 3.4.5. I understood this to be a free update.

  • I bought over a Mac Book Pro from a friend. I can't update iPhoto and other apps as it seems like these are tagged to the previous owner's account. Pls advise.

    I bought over a Mac Book Pro from a friend. I can't update iPhoto and other apps as it seems like these are tagged to the previous owner's account. It basically requires me to sign in to my fren's account which is absurb! Because iphoto comes with mac isn't it?

    Contact your "friend." Have him set up the MBP for your with your own account, settings and passwords. You are not running IOS 5.1. That is for iPhone and iPad users. What OS are you running? Did he give you the OS installer disks?

    How can I update iPhoto and iVideo from Mavericks?

    Was iVideo purchased on the app store?  If so, both iPhoto and iVideo can be updated via the App Store.  (You can click on Software Update under the Apple menu at the top left of your display).

    They are updated through the Software Update facility, not the Mac App Store.
    Thanks for popping in....
    My iLife apps are all from retail install disks predating Lion/ML; I am running 10.8.4 and as soon as I choose Software Update from the menu, the app store 'Updates" window opens with "checking for updates". I believe that behavior (SU being directed to MAS) was changed with ML?

  • Can't update iPhoto after loading yosemite

    Uploaded Yosemite and can't update iPhoto.  message is that the app was bought by another user or cancelled.  Not true.  What should I do?

    How can I get a 'redeem code'?  I have the same problem.
    In that case you need a redeem code for iPhoto from the App Store to be able to update.
    Obviously you contact App store support - link is on the right of the App store window

    You installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
    Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store alert. For example, the App Store may prompt you to update "Angry Birds" or "Twitter," but the hacked app may be something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you must carry out a systematic search with Spotlight.
    1. Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    2. In the Finder, press command-F to open a search window, or select
    File ▹ Find
    from the menu bar. In the search window, select
    Search: This Mac
    from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu of search criteria, initially showing Kind. From that menu, select
    Other...
    A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select
    Raw Query
    as the criterion, then click OK or press return.
    Now there will be a text box to the right of the menu of search criteria. That's where you enter the raw search query. Click in that box and paste the text you copied earlier by pressing command-V.
    4. The search window will now show all the App Store products that are installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
    At least one of the apps in the Spotlight search results is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash, after quitting it if it's running. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
    Quit and relaunch the App Store. Test.
    If you find these instructions confusing, ask for an alternative method.

    (1) Download the Windows Installer CleanUp utility installer file (msicuu2.exe) from the following Major Geeks page (use one of the links under the "DOWNLOAD LOCATIONS" thingy on the Major Geeks page):
    http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4459
    (2) Doubleclick the msicuu2.exe file and follow the prompts to install the Windows Installer CleanUp utility. (If you're on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system and you get a Code 800A0046 error message when doubleclicking the msicuu2.exe file, try instead right-clicking on the msicuu2.exe file and selecting "Run as administrator".)
    (3) In your Start menu click All Programs and then click Windows Install Clean Up. The Windows Installer CleanUp utility window appears, listing software that is currently installed on your computer.
    (4) In the list of programs that appears in CleanUp, select any Bonjour entries and click "Remove", as per the following screenshot:
    (5) Quit out of CleanUp, restart the PC and try another iTunes install. Does it go through properly this time?
