Apple today may release a new version of
iPhoto, its most recently introduced consumer application. As MacCentral posted this article, iPhoto 1.0 was still the only version officially available for download from Apple’s Web site.
iPhoto was introduced at Macworld Expo in San Francisco this past January. Working in conjunction with Apple’s own Image Capture technology in OS X, iPhoto enables Mac users to plug in their digital cameras and have the images downloaded and cataloged automatically. iPhoto also provides basic image editing capabilities and various output options, including one that enables you to have your pictures printed in a hardbound, custom made book.
New features in iPhoto 1.1 include:
email your photos using Apple Mail
adjust brightness and contrast to improve the appearance of your photo
retain and display EXIF data (image and camera information about each photo)
automatically create an album by dragging a folder of photos into the Photo Library list
import directly from a Photo CD or Picture CD
import a group of photos as separate film rolls by dragging a folder with subfolders into the photo viewing area
set your desktop image from within iPhoto
set your screen saver from within iPhoto
As always, iPhoto is free. It requires Mac OS X 10.1 or higher. Visit Apple’s Web site for more details.
