Hi Iam Ashik. I think i can help you

What version of iPhoto are you using ? (iPhoto 8 or iPhoto 9)
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i think 08. I got my mac in 2007 and have done the apple requests for updating without paying for anything extra.
Expert:  Ashik replied 7 years ago.
Okay..you can reinstall iPhoto from your Mac OS X installation disks. Its very easy,
  • Insert your Mac OS X 10.x Install disc 1.
  • Double-click the "Optional Installs.mpkg" from the Setup window. You may need to scroll down to see the Optional Installs icon.
  • After the installer opens, you can check iPhoto only from the list under Applications.
  • Continue and finish installation.
  • Then restart your Mac and iPhoto should be there. Good Luck !

Best Regards,
Ashik

I got to the optional icons install, it did not give me a list under applications, just the "optional Installs". I checked it and continued. it said there is nothing to install, i repeated it, it asked for my computer password, then it installed a few things like ical, safari, etc, but i did not see iphoto come up yet. Should i shut off my computer and see what is on it when it powers back on?

Since iPhoto 8 is universal, you can download iPhoto 08' from here. I uploaded it, just download and copy it to your Applications folder.
