.I have a question regarding my iphone and Mac desk top. I am using OS X El Capitan. I currently have iphoto 1.5. I am trying to download the iphoto update (to 9.6.1) but when i do the error comes up saying "not available to this Apple ID either bc it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled. " I am not sure what this means. I have had this same desk top for years. I recently bought a lap top a few months ago but not sure why that would be related. My whole goal is to make a photobook. My main problem is downloading picture from my iphone 7 to my desk top. It says there are 6-8 images that are corrupt and therefore will not download any of the 815 from my phone. Yes, they are all in icloud but icloud will only let me download 1 picture at a time back to my desk top. I thought updating my iphoto would help solve this issue now this. I did buy an iphone X thinking it would solve any future problems however when i download photos to my desk top from the iphone x it says there are 3-4 corrupt files however it still downloads all the rest of the pictures unlike the iphone 7. Bot***** *****ne- i would like to get my pictures from my iphone 7 to desk top to make a photobook. Or figure out how to download from icloud but by selecting many not one by one. Please help. I have dedicated this entire weekend to figure this out. Child care and everything. Thanks I

please

Usually, that means that you changed your Apple ID email address at some point and it is linked to an older account.

I dont think I have. I have only had one email account to yahoo my whole life. Is that my Apple ID email, right?
Technician: Harry, IT replied 6 months ago

I am not sure what your Apple ID account is but it would be the email address that you used with Apple.
