iTunes 3, the third of four components that make up iLife, is also available as a free download from Apple's Web site. iDVD, the fourth application included with iLife, will not be available as a download due to its size.
iPhoto 2 now includes one-click photo Enhance, which can improve less-than-perfect pictures; a new Retouch tool for removing scratches, hair, lens dirt, etc.; photo archiving to a CD or DVD to preserve and share your iPhoto library; and the ability to e-mail photos with one click using Mac OS X Mail, Eudora, Entourage and AOL.
iMovie 3 features pro-quality special effects, including the new "Ken Burns" effect for adding motion to still photos; new audio editing tools and sound effects from Skywalker Sound's seven-time Academy Award winner Gary Rydstrom; special video effects such as Aged Film, Letterbox and Earthquake; and the ability to add chapter markers to movies for DVD navigation and scene selection.
iDVD 3 includes 24 new pro-quality, Apple-designed, customizable DVD menu themes; automatically created DVD scene selection menus from iMovie chapter markers; and the ability to personalize iDVD 3 themes with personal photos, music and movies using iDVD Drop Zones.
Originally slated to be released on January 25, 2003 and then delayed for a week, the iLife bundle started to reach customers this week.
