  • Anyone know how to update to this build from the beta build? Tried software update but there is no update to be found.
  • If you find this out, do let someone know. My update isn't showing up either.
  • Go to iPhoto app and go to show package contents - then go to version.plist then change from 9.2 to 9.1.2 - reboot Mac - check update.
    Warning iPhoto updates to 9.2 but crashes with 2 min of opening
  • Does it stop crashing or does it always crash when you open it? And is your library file intact?
  • Yes, every time I launch iPhoto it crashes fast. Only way to fix is to disable photo stream.. I did this by launching Aperture then enable photo stream from it.. Only 1 app can photo stream.. After this iPhoto will launch and work.. Yet no photo stream..
  • So, I have iPhoto 6.x. This seems to obviously mean that I will not be able to use iCloud to have my photos pushed to my Mac, right? How do I get iPhoto 9?
    Edit: Hmm... I guess I buy it ($14.99 in Mac App store) or possibly get Lion. Phooey.
  • I have 9.15 and it won't update. Any suggestions? It says I have the most recent version
  • If I enable photostream iPhoto crashes.. Only fix for me was to launch aperture enable photo stream which removes enablement from iPhoto.
    Basically iPhoto does not work with photo stream..
