On my new Mac book pro, I have aperture on yosemite. I can no longer open iPhoto. The necessary upgrade is not available on the UK App store.. How do I restore iPhoto.

  • Which version of Yosemite are you on? iPhoto has now been replaced with "Photos" which should have already downloaded as part of a software update. – smoooosher May 26 '15 at 20:13
  • Is the iPhoto Library still there or do you see the "Photos Library"? If that's the case, then there's very little that you can do. – chrisjr May 26 '15 at 21:12
  • Did you ever have installed/purchase iPhoto on your Mac? – nohillside May 27 '15 at 11:15

If you've "purchased" iPhoto before, trash the old version and download the current version (9.6.1) from your Purchases tab in the App Store. Edit: updating won't work any more (Apple wants you to use Photos).

PS. I have Photos, Aperture and iPhoto 9.6.1, the latter I can download any time from the 'Purchases' page in (UK) App Store and launch/use it.

  • Don't know why this got the downvote; it's precisely what I'd try – Tetsujin May 27 '15 at 7:18
  • AFAIK downloading iPhoto from the Purchased tab is only possible if you aquired iPhoto before Apple launched Photos. – nohillside May 27 '15 at 9:38
  • @patrix Which is reflected in the answer. – Redarm May 27 '15 at 9:41
  • It's downvoted because it is not an answer to the question. It is a step to try, but iPhoto doesn't work on Yosemite 10.10.3 even if you purchased it beforehand. – smoooosher May 27 '15 at 16:21
  • @smoooosher That's even more confusing. What do you mean by "iPhoto doesn't work on Yosemite 10.10.3"? – Redarm May 27 '15 at 18:56
