iPhoto: iOS to OSX Project Migration Never Worked

When iOS 8 was released iPhoto was removed and replaced by “Photos” the project section from the previous version (iPhoto) was removed. I had projects in que to print books,calendars and so on, I have yet to see my projects show up in the iPhoto on my Mac which means effectively my projects are gone. All the time I spent Configuring a book for nothing. It has been about a year and still no show on my projects in iPhoto, I had to recreate those projects all over again. With no way to leave a review for a product that has been pulled from market I will make my review here. With that said I like iPhoto and its my main photo manager but will go from 5 to 4 stars because of the above mentioned.

Not sure what the fuss is about

I like iPhoto, I like the way it organizes my photos and I have as of yet (knock on wood) to have any problems with it. It’s been great and it has a ton of features that I find impressive. A lot of people throw their photos in it and don’t do anything with it other than that but I like to keep my photos organized and I find iPhoto is perfect for that. Not 5 star worthy, but certainly not less than four for me.

Smooth Sailing

I was rather dismayed as I read the negative comments and waited for the “Installing” button to change to “Open”. It did. The subsequent steps necessary to update my iPhoto Library appeared in due course and within 1 1/2 hours I was using the application wtih very satisfactory results. No movies or photos have gone missing. Apple, today I can only give you the thumbs up!
