Be grateful for some help. I do a lot of photography, club stuff, and was using iPhoto to organise a few people's contributions prior to making a Keynote presentation. These were on pen drives. Suddenly iPhoto closed and said I something about my using a later version of iPhoto (not so) and I could not thereafter access any of my iPhoto library. In the end I deleted and reinstalled iPhoto from the installation disk - having earlier deleted the iphoto library of photos and copied them back from Time Machine.
That solved the problem... but I need the lot on my Macbook, which has 10.8.2 so I can read files from iMac (10.6.8) via wireless.
Problem now is that the photo library has a red circle with a white bar saying I do not have permission. I did the get info bit but there was no option to give myself permission.
I am a bit stuck for ideas... not being a programmer!

Try "get info" on the library. Under "Sharing and permissions" make sure you have permission...
