This solution works exactly as described, but you must have iPhoto available to update. Thank you!! Worked perfectly for me today. I am dreading the day that iPhotos stops working for good. I really rely on events, and having them down the side panel on Photos is cumbersome, particularly when you have a large photo library. I am amazed at how crappy things have gotten since I a bought my brand-new iMac and b have had to try and get used to this lemon that is Yosemite. I use PCs at work but have been using Mac for about 10 years for all the used-to-be-cool stuff they had to offer.

Could not agree with you more.

Stop giving us crap OS updates that kill your hardware. I do think someone like Samsung could easily topple Apple if they keep going in this direction. Oct 6, Tried to find IPhoto in the App store and could not locate it. I also hate Photos and wish to have IPhoto back. Click the App Store Icon 2. Click the Show Updates button 3. At the bottom of the list, click Update next to iPhoto 9.

Follow the install prompts. Another hint: I had the issue that AppStore told me that the needed iPhoto version is currently not available for download or update.

Mac OS X 10.4.11 lands, along with iPhoto 7.1.1

For anyone with the same problem I recommend following solution by user Terrell Smith https: That worked for me. I am so sorry I updated to Yosemite. Lost iPhoto. Photos seems like a downgrade. For the first time I am considering leaving Apple. Microsoft seems to be a better solution.

Apple suggested I purchase yet another program. It seems to be all about money now. Not customer satisfaction. Bring back iPhoto. I love IPhotos and am having a hard time navigating through Photos.

The pictures of out of order. They still show up in all of the libraries, even after I have put them in Event Folders.

I hope Apple will continue to support IPhotos!!! Apple no longer has iPhoto available in the App store. Perhaps they removed it for good to force people to migrate to Photos. It will be in your Purchases tab. It will not be visible if you did not previously have iPhoto on the Mac.

Good to see I have company. My reform MacBook Pro has caused me much grief. Photos is an app designed for Mom to take pictures of the kids.

iBook G4 running Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger. Useful in 2018?

Not that Apple cares. So sad that the last American company that seemed to know what it was doing has finally succumbed to the lowest common denominator. Also an artist, and finding the photos app is crap. We bought a desktop Mac for the purpose of it being shared between my husband and I. It has always had iPhoto as far as I know. The iMac is currently running Maverick but apparently my iPhoto is 9. Am I stuck getting the photos app now? I have all of our photos backed on an external hard drive. Thank you for your very helpful information. I had recently upgraded clean install to El Capitan and backed up everything to Time Machine.

After failing to import my iPhoto library due to permission errors I tried all sorts of tips to restore and import. Your solution to use iPhoto instead of Photos app worked a treat. I, however, never purchased a copy through the App Store, nor did it appear in my list of applications with a cross more like the no smoking sign over it. In the end I was able to import the iPhoto app from my Time Machine back up and ran it using your Terminal command method.

I was able to successfully repair the permissions and then import to Photos without losing any photos or videos. You have saved my marriage. When I updated to Yosemite a little over a year ago, it installed Photos and disabled iPhoto without asking. Not too cool, Apple. At that point there was no way to use iPhoto, or go back, as described in earlier posts, although the app was still there.

Apple's software for viewing and managing your photos

Recently, an update to iPhoto appeared. I went ahead and installed it, and iPhoto will now come up. It is asking which photo library file to point to, and as soon as I can figure out what to do without destroying anything, I will go back to iPhoto. All my photos are covered in black pixels when I open the thumbnail. Can anyone help with this? Thank god I still had iPhoto. I hope! Just got done with 7months in SE Asia and took a ton of pictures which went into my macbook pro High Sierra.
