Thanks...Was able to download iPhoto9.4.3, but the installer prompts the following msg with no option to continue: [The version of iPhoto installed on this Mac must be updated through the Mac App Store. Check the Mac App Store to see if an update is available]. So I checked the Mac App Store [which is at itunes.app.com], whereas, the link you provided was via [support.apple.com]; and there is nothing comparable to iPhoto.
I cannot download anything from the App store, even If I try to unhide my purchases it does not exist for me. This is probably because I bought the mac in 2011 and installed from a disk, not from a download. The app store was not really around at this time.
am using an OS X Mavericks iPhoto 9.4.3 and trying to install iPhoto 9.5.1 - but when I load up iPhoto 9.4.3, it states that I should update to iPhoto 9.5.1 - I click "Go to Software Update", am booted to the Mac App Store, then it doesn't show iPhoto 9.5.1 as an available download.
I went the route of Ask Different iPhoto 9.5.1 upgrade thread and deleted the com.apple.storehelper/* but that didn't help. Then I went and deleted iPhoto.app. Big mistake. Now I'm unable to download the app from the Mac App Store (it states "Newest version of iPhoto is for OS X Yosemite only - want to download the previous version?" I click yes and am told "Mac App Store error (null)" and that's it.
How should I proceed? I was able to find a downloader for iPhoto 9.4.3 from the Apple Support pages - and am hoping that it will at least let me re-install iPhoto 9.4.3, but getting to iPhoto 9.5.1 would be pretty important right about now.
iPhoto is available in the App Store if you owned it before and had downloaded it from the App Store before. It will be in your Purchases tab. It will not be visible if you did not previously have iPhoto on the Mac.
There is no way to legally download the latest version of iPhoto for free, as it only came 'free' with brand new Macs for a few years (and has now been replaced on the newest Macs with an app just called "Photos"). With the new Macs that qualified for the free downloads, the first time you signed in to the App Store you would be prompted to "Accept" iPhoto, iMovie and Garageband which would then bind these apps to your Apple ID as purchases (although they were free). At this point you could then technically download them on all machines that you owned for free, provided they met system requirements and you remembered your Apple ID and password (no activation key required).
After the brief introduction of iPhoto Library Manager and the new Photos app, you may have a better understanding of it. Here we will show you how to use iPhoto Library Manager on Mac. You can download iPhoto Library Manager above and follow below guidance to find manage iPhoto libraries such as finding duplicate photos or rebuilding corrupted libraries. 2b1af7f3a8
