If you installed iPhoto from the iLife ’11 DVD, or if iPhoto was preinstalled on your computer along with Mac OS X Snow Leopard v10.6.8 or earlier, iPhoto periodically checks for updates when you open iPhoto and notifies you if an update is available. Check for updates manually in the Mac App Store (if you purchased iPhoto in the Mac App Store, or if iPhoto and OS X Lion v10.7 or later were preinstalled) Open the Mac App Store and click Updates in the toolbar. If an iPhoto update is available, it appears in the Mac App Store window.

iPhoto: Back up your iPhoto library
It’s a good idea to routinely back up, or archive, your iPhoto library in case image files become corrupted or are unintentionally erased from your hard disk. There are two ways to back up all or part of your photo library: Save photos to an external hard drive: If you have an external hard drive set up, you can use Time Machine or the Backup utility to make a backup copy of your photos. Using Time Machine, an application included with OS X, is the easiest and most efficient way to back up your computer, including your entire photo library. After you set it up, Time Machine automatically backs up your computer regularly, without any more effort on your part. Important: Time Machine can’t do a full backup of your iPhoto library when iPhoto is open. To ensure that Time Machine does a complete backup of your library, quit iPhoto periodically before backing up. To restore photos, quit iPhoto , open the folder containing your iPhoto library, and then open Time Machine. To open Time Machine, click its icon in the Dock, or click the Time Machine icon in the menu bar and choose Enter Time Machine. For more information on Time Machine or Backup, see the topics in Help Center. Burn photos to CD or DVD: For instructions, see Create your own photo CDs and DVDs.https://support.apple.com/kb/PH19865?locale=en_GB
This update addresses minor issues in the area of import and syncing to iPhone, iPod or Apple TV. The update is recommended for all users of iPhoto ’09.

Update iPhoto '11 to 9.0.1 before upgrading library
Before an existing iPhoto library can be used with iPhoto '11 it must be upgraded. This process occurs when you open your library with iPhoto '11 for the first time. In extremely rare cases, if you do not follow the recommendations below during the upgrade process, you may experience data loss. This article outlines the various events that may occur during the library upgrade process and offers advice on how to avoid data loss.https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT202146
iPhoto Library Upgrader 1.1
This tool prepares libraries from iPhoto 7 or earlier so they can be upgraded with the current version of iPhoto .https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1523?locale=en_GB
Using the iPhoto Library Upgrader tool
When you open a library created by an earlier version of iPhoto , you might see a message that says "Library version too old. Please upgrade your library ' iPhoto Library' using the free iPhoto Library Upgrader available from Apple." The iPhoto Library Upgrader prepares libraries from iPhoto '08 (v7.x) or earlier so that you can use them with the current version of iPhoto or Photos for OS X. If your library was created by iPhoto '09 (v8.x) or later, you don't need to use this tool.https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT202358
iPhoto '09 & iPhoto '11: Improving face recognition results
Follow the guidelines below to improve the face recognition capabilities of iPhoto '09 and iPhoto '11. Note: Only faces that have been automatically detected in your photo library will help iPhoto match faces. Manually identified faces will not aid iPhoto's face-matching ability. Identifying profiled faces Matching a name to a profiled face, as in the image below, may help iPhoto find and suggest more profile shots of that person in that person's face tile in Faces. Manually matching a profile image of a face in your library will not help with direct shots of that person. Identify and confirm direct and profile shots in order for iPhoto to suggest both variations. Identifying a face at different stages of age If you happen to have photos of the same person spanning a long time frame, such as photos from baby through adult years, identifying all of them under the same name may help iPhoto in finding more matches of that particular person. Identifying back-of-the-head images iPhoto should not detect the back of a person's head when matching faces. If the back of a person's head is automatically detected, it would be better to eliminate the detected "face" in order to maintain iPhoto's ability to recognize this person. Select the photo with the detected back-of-head and select the Name icon in the tool bar. Hover over the "unknown face" and then select the X that appears on the top left of the face box. Note: If you have manually added a missing face to be the back of someone's head, this will neither positively nor negatively affect iPhoto's ability to recognize that person in other photos. Identifying blurry, badly lit or very small faces If iPhoto has automatically detected a face from an image that is blurry, badly lit, or has a small face, then identifying it with a name will broaden the suggested photos for that particular person in that person's face tile in Faces. Note: In these types of photos, faces are harder to distinguish and iPhoto may incorrectly suggest these types of faces in other face tiles as well.https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201891

iPhoto 6 and later: Rebuilding the iPhoto library
iPhoto includes a feature that allows you to rebuild the currently selected iPhoto library. Sometimes rebuilding the library may resolve issues such as the library appearing to be unreadable, missing photos, or other issues related to reading the iPhoto library structure. Important: You should back up your existing iPhoto Library before using the rebuild feature. A backup allows you to restore the iPhoto Library if anything unexpected happens during the rebuild that prevents the library from rebuilding correctly. Before performing a rebuild, you should install any iPhoto updates by using Software Update. If a software update resolves your issue, then you don't need to rebuild. It's also a good idea to search Apple's Support Page for your specific iPhoto symptom before doing a rebuild, just in case there is a more specific article or relevant solution. To rebuild the iPhoto library:
Quit iPhoto if it is open.
Hold down the Command and Option keys on the keyboard.
Open iPhoto .
Keep the keys held down until you are prompted to rebuild the library.
A dialog will appear with rebuild options. Select the options you want to use.
Click Rebuild to begin the rebuild process. This may take a few minutes to complete.
Use these guidelines to determine which options to choose in the rebuild dialog:
Select the option(s) to rebuild thumbnails only if the thumbnails appear to be an issue (gray, blank, missing or mismatched).
Select the option to recover orphaned photos if photos appear to be missing from the iPhoto library. iPhoto will examine the library folder for any photos that are not currently being displayed in Albums or Events in the iPhoto source list.
In iPhoto '08 and later, select the option to examine and repair iPhoto Library file permissions if it appears that you cannot edit certain photos or if the iPhoto library will not open. See " iPhoto 6 can't open due to permissions alert" for more information.
In iPhoto '08, select the option to "Rebuild the iPhoto Library database" if iPhoto unexpectedly quits when opened or does not get past loading photos.
In iPhoto '09, select the option to "Rebuild the iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup" if iPhoto unexpectedly quits when opened or does not get past loading photos. This option is similar to the option to "Rebuild the iPhoto Library database" in iPhoto '08, except that it has the added ability to regenerate a database from an automatically backed up library database. Also, after rebuilding your library database using this option, your original database files can be found in the "Before Restore" folder inside the library package.
In iPhoto '11, select the option to "Repair the iPhoto Library Database" to check the iPhoto Library database for inconsistencies and repair them, if necessary. iPhoto '11 also includes the option to "Rebuild the iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup," which performs the same functions as it does in iPhoto '09, but should only be attempted if the "Repair the iPhoto Library Database" option does not help.
Note: Any "recovered" photos may not appear in their original album in the source list. However, they should appear in the newly created "Recovered Photos" album in the source list.https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201769
iPhoto 9.5: Use iPhoto with Aperture
Use iPhoto with Aperture If you have iPhoto 9.4 (or later) and Aperture 3.4 (or later) installed on your computer, you can use your photo libraries in either application. This is useful if, for example, you want to edit photos from your iPhoto library using the professional tools in Aperture, or if you want to create print projects in iPhoto from your Aperture photos. You can also merge your iPhoto and Aperture libraries into a single library by importing your iPhoto library into Aperture. The merged library can then be used in either application. Open your iPhoto library in Aperture In iPhoto , choose File > Open Library in Aperture. If you’re in full-screen view, move the pointer to the top of the screen to make the menu bar appear. iPhoto closes and Aperture opens. To switch back to iPhoto from Aperture, choose File > Open Library in iPhoto . Switch to a different iPhoto or Aperture library In iPhoto , choose File > Switch to Library. If you’re in full-screen view, move the pointer to the top of the screen to make the menu bar appear. A list of your photo libraries appears. Click a library to select it, and then click Choose. iPhoto quits and then reopens with the library you selected. If you selected an Aperture library, a new item called Events appears in the Source list. To view a complete list of your events, move the pointer over the item and then click Show. To switch back to the previous library, choose File > Switch to Library, select the library, and then click Choose. Merge your iPhoto and Aperture libraries Quit iPhoto if it’s open, and then open Aperture. If your Aperture library isn’t open, choose File > Switch to Library, and choose your Aperture library from the submenu. Choose File > Import > Library/Project. Navigate to your iPhoto library and select it (by default, photo libraries are located in the Pictures folder). Click Import. Aperture imports your iPhoto library and merges it with your Aperture library. Tip: When you merge your iPhoto and Aperture libraries, photos that exist in both libraries are retained, resulting in duplicates. To save disk space, remove potential duplicate photos from one of the libraries before merging. When working with your iPhoto and Aperture libraries, keep in mind the following: All photos, albums, events, and Faces and Places data can be viewed and edited in either application. Smart Albums and slideshows can be viewed in either application but can be edited only in the application in which they were created. Print products (books, calendars, and cards) can be viewed and edited only in the application in which they were created. Note: Your iPhoto or Aperture library can be opened in only one application at a time. For more information about using your iPhoto library in Aperture, see Aperture Help.https://support.apple.com/kb/PH15167?locale=en_GB
