Hi I have a 10.7.5 MAC - I downloaded the trial LR5 which downloaded fine. BUT I have my photos stored in Albums in iPhoto. The LR5 is not offering me iPhoto as an "Import" choice. I go to the "other source" prompt and I see the icon for the iPhoto file, but it is not lit up as one I can pick from! I can't get to my photos to "Import" to the LR5 to even try it. Im very frustrated. Solution please.

Thank you it worked! And as you stated it downloaded ALL my iPhoto pix- even ones I thought I deleted! Now shifting re-trashing a lot and will get to trying this LR 5.7 after I have clean catalog. I am grateful for your help
