IPhoto 6: Just installed and have many questions!

I have just installed iLife 06, and my life seems to be much more difficult. Am I missing something here? Hope someone can help me.
1) When I installed iPhoto 6, I was asked to upgrade my Library so that iPhoto 6 can read it, so I did. What I noticed it did, was to replace the files that were originally sorted out by Date folders in iLife 05 to 2 main folders Originals and Modified, then sub folders by year then by Roll. I like the old way of organizing by date, because that way I am able to find my photos in the hard drive quite easily. How should I find my photos now in the hard drive? Why did Apple decide to organize the photos by Roll instead of by date?
2) When the library is updated to Version 6, I understand that the library will not be opened in iPhoto 5 anymore. But for some logistic reasons, I need to be operating using iLife 05 in my iBook for the next 1 year. What should I do now? Do I have to re-import the jpg files into my iPhoto 5 and retag all my keywords to the photos and lose all my previous organization?
3) There are a few photos that have lost the link to the original photos: i.e. I can see the thumbnails in iPhoto Library, but when I tried to see in edit view, it shows no photos. How can I correct that? How can I locate all photos that have broken link?
4) There are at least 20 photos in my Library that when I try to open them in Edit view, iPhoto would crash. Why is that so? Are the photos corrupted?
Hope someone can enlighten me. It seems that iLife 06 gives me more problem than iLife 05. Can I reinstall iLife 05 back? If yes, how?

How should I find my photos now in the hard drive?
This new system comes in with iPhoto 6, and is expected behaviour. If you wish, you can set up your own file structure and still work with iPhoto 6, but in the meantime to find your files you can
1: Right (or Control) -Click on a pic and select 'Show File'. A new Finder window will open with the file selected.
or
2. Export the files to the Desktop (File -> Export)
or
3. Drag and Drop the pics to the desktop (or indeed any folder where you want them)
Of course, exporting and dragging and dropping will create a copy of the pic at the destination.
iPhoto is designed so that everything you need to do can be done via the iPhoto WIndow. It is strongly advised that you do not move, change or in anyway alter things in the iPhoto Library Folder as this can cause the application to fail and even lead to data loss
Do I have to re-import the jpg files into my iPhoto 5 and retag all my keywords to the photos and lose all my previous organization?
Unfortunately, yes. iPhoto 5 cannot read the v6 library.
There are a few photos that have lost the link to the original photo
Try rebuilding the thumbnail and Library database - hold down the apple and option key when you launch the app and the resulting dialogue box will give you the maintenance options.
There are at least 20 photos in my Library that when I try to open them in Edit view, iPhoto would crash. Why is that so? Are the photos corrupted?
They may be, though I don't know why. Do you have Graphic Convertor? Try export them or drag and drop them to the desktop, open them in GC and use Save As to save them as jpegs again. Then re-import them. This sometimes works.
It seems that iLife 06 gives me more problem than iLife 05. Can I reinstall iLife 05 back?
Yes you can. Simply drag the app to the trash, then go to HD/Library/Receipts and trash any file there with iPhoto in the title. Then re-install 5 from your original disk. However, while there may be a learning curve, in my experience 6 is superior in every way to 5, faster, more features, more stable.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask

    I have lightroom 5.7 installed, and have just downloaded / installed Lightroom CC, but although lightroom 5 runs ok, Lightroom CC will not run, any ideas please.

    What seems to be working for many users (myself included) is to sign out of CC and then sign back in.  After signing back in, LR will run.

    BAckup your iPhoto library, depress and hold the option and command keys while launching iPhoto until the first aid window comes up and repair permissions and if necessary rebuild your database

  • I have many questions, I have called Support,  they refuse to forward or give me Tech Support See Be

    Hi,
    I have many questions, and have had a very frustrating time to get in touch with the correct person.
    I have called support twice, both times even though it was a technical question about cloud, they refused to forward my calls and told me there is NO technicall support for Cloud and that I have to place my questions here in the forum.
    I am CONTINUALLY told to change my password, 2 and 3 times a week.  I am a sysAdmin, my passwords are a MINIMUM of 13 Char/UP/Lower/Number/Special Combo, always have been. They work out to a 100% approval in any algorythm checker.   Yes, I was one of the persons who had their password stolen which has caused me a tad bit of inconvenience, but such is life.   Is This Normal? I have gone on twitter a few times to verify the emails, I have got them so often.
    My "Cloud Sync" Hasn't worked since PhotoShop's Site Closed, I know this beause I stored my 20gigs of files, .ai,  and .eps, .psd eveything that I couldn't move to Revel (which btw, I never got a refund for having to purchase the revel account 20gigs, when photoshop was closed, which also was never refunded.) 
    I actually wasn't too worried about the cloud issue because I only work at home, if I go somewhere else.. work's not going with me
    Since about three weeks ago and currently I am having NOTHING but problems with cloud, The errors in my Event Log are NUMEROUS

    manifest for x86/64bit at both dll files compiled so I cannot review their content.
    However it should be noted at this time, I did not invoke Dreamweaver, the Cloud did, and this is not the first time.
    This particular error occured 5 times in 3 seconds.
    Same two errors at 3:49pm on the 28th.
    Today, I went and bought a new solid state drive. Brand New Fresh OS, Downloaded Cloud, CC, and of course The Edge Products, which I dearly love btw.       Everything seems to be working fine, EXCEPT,
    1.) where did CS6 Products Go?
    2.) Why after being a Faithful Product User/Cloud Supporter for the Last two years, after going through all the trials and tribulations with Adobe, am I being asked to renew my license for a "One Time Per Year Fee" which is MORE than my monthly amount? ( deal: 599.80; payments at 49.95 per month is 599.40 Go Figure? ) So, I'm being asked to pay the same amount, make it a single payment and get half the software, litterally.   Did I miss a paticularly important anouncement?
    3.) EVERYONE OF MY IRREPLACABLE FILES IN MY CLOUD ALL MY AI FILES, are gone. Yesterday, it would seem My having the SYNC TURNED OFF was over-ridden by the system (Adobes) and they have upload 'garbage' files, and my original files, the caligraphy files are no longer there. My gorgeous image of a little boy with flowers is no longer there. I PAID ALMOST A GRAND for these files. Stored them on Adobe, because, well, you deal with images, so you're the best right, that's why I bought extra storage on photoshop.com, then was told I would have to move to revel, but not the ai, eps, or pdf and i don't remember about png's. files, so I moved everything to revel (purchased the extra storage there.) AND put everything on the cloud and turned off my file sync.  Not everyone is an idiot, maybe something is turned off, there's a reason for it, how dare someone override MY SETTINGS. They could have emailed, called, chat, google chat, irc, or snail mailed me, it's pretty easy to get my attention.
    I could just cry.
    lost my files,
    asked to pay one time instead on monthy, and there's not even a discount and no additional incentive. Lost the ability to work without having to be connected to the internet, which will be delimited here very shortly since I'm on comcast.
    and the worst, the very absolutely worst part is this is the SECOND time in a row now, I've had an issue with Adobe that has gone on for over a year while support TELLS ME A PAYING CUSTOMER, that 'gee, sorry, no support for cloud" , "No I can't forward you to a tech" (direct quote) and "The Only support for any cloud issues is the forum"
    How can I handle this in the future, my nerves just can't take it anymore. Seriously, I'm just shaking now I'm so upset about this and I really hate writing something like this, or airing issues in public that really should be, imho, private.

    Hi Ken,
    Wow, I've logged into adobe and never seen your response until now.
    I need to make the forums more of a daily stop I guess.
    Thank you for your response, When I go to the Archives, it states I have none. In addition, previously when I'd tried to move items to the archive, they just disappeared  
    Currently my desktop is not connecting at all, Everytime I connect, it's states "We have now logged you out" and requests I login again.
    I have of course rebooted,
    Gone into taskmanager, killed all the relevant threads,  tried again to login through the desktop, no luck, I'll have to uninstall it, make sure the threads are killed, then reboot it and then reinstall it, but I've not had the time to do that.
    On another note, and just as a point of reference, myself, personally, I hate these "cloud" file repositories (not to be confused with adobe cloud services which I love) but the file repositories themselves imho, are a blackhole of resource usage when one doesn't/isn't using them,
    Is there a way we can use it more of a "ftp" sort of thing, when I want to I can  put files there?  There is no way to "Download" the repository, no way to download the folders.. only individual files and then it takes I think three different steps before the download starts.. I find this very inhibiting.  Just an fyi. for what it's worth.
    Please, feel free to contact me,
    I'm on g+ chat [email protected]

  • Officejet Pro 8000 A809 - can I print just black and have empty color cartridge?

    I saw in a previous post entitled "PSC 1410 - can I print just black and have empty color cartridge"
    that the printer does color underprinting even when printing black and white, to prevent bleeding.
    My question is, is this also true when selecting the grayscale printing option in the printer properties dialog box?
    I installed the printer using an ethernet connection to a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop computer running Windows XP Professional

    Yes you will still need the color cartridge.  The printer uses what is called under printing, it still uses some of the color cartridge's ink in this process, even when printing in just black, the reason is to stop the black from "bleeding"
    I was an HP employee

  • How to export iPhoto Album in iMAC and have similar folder structure(with Timestamps) which can be viewed in finder

    How to export iPhoto Album in iMAC and have similar folder structure(with Timestamps) which can be viewed in finder
    In simple terms, I wanted to view the photos in Windows system, similar strcture of iPhotos

    If you want to copy all of your photos to a Windows machine and have them in folders representing the iPhoto Events the were in quickly and easily just do the following:
    1  - open the library with the Finder as shown in this screenshot:
    2 - COPY the Originals/Masters folder to the Desktop.
    3 - copy the Originals/Masters folder to the Windows machine.
    This will give you all of your original image file in their Event folder on the Windows machine.
    NOTE:  With iPhoto 8 or newer the Event folders in the Masters folder will be titled by date (EXIF) if imported from a camera.  If imported from a folder the event folder will have the same title as the source folder.  If imported singularly or in a group without a folder the title will be a date, either the EXIF date or import date.
    With iPhoto 7 (08) and earlier the Event folders in the Originals folder will have the same title as the Event has in the library.
    This method would be quicker but not provide the additional metadata you might have added in iPhoto like keywords, titles, descriptions that exporting out of iPhoto with Format=JPEG and the checkboxes selected to include keywords, titles, places, etc, checked.

  • Clean installing Lion- have some questions.

    I'm gonna clean install Lion on my macbook pro and have some questions regarding the same...
    should I update to 10.7.2 and then clean install or will i have to update again anyway after a clean install?
    is it true that downloading mac app store apps again from the app's page reincurrs the charges?

    most important... how do i initiate a clean install?!
    Thanks for your time, in advance.

    Thank you, that definitely suggests that it isn't actually doing anything useful!
    I switched it off, cleared the PRAM and re-formatted the drive unencrypted (I found the option, it was in the dropdown for filesystem).
    That appears to have been the issue, as the download and install immediately identified the disc name, which it wasn't doing before. Guess it was having an issue with my encrypted drive. I guess it's handy I'm not a secret agent or an political dissident I shall run unencrypted...

    Hello, if those Question marks are in the Dock, it means OSX can't find them either.
    Right click on the Q mark & choose Remove from Dock, might be Roght click or click, then Options>Remove from dock on later OSX versions.
    Sometimes you can just drag it of the Dock, or CMD +drag it off.
