Apple iPhoto '11 Editor's Review

Apple is known mostly for its category redefining gadgets and computing devices but the company also makes some stellar software for its products that sets new benchmark for competitors. It is true about its cutting edge video editor FCP or the newest iteration of photo editor iPhoto. The Mac edition of iPhoto comes with a plethora of new features and native 64-bit support. It is even more suitable for sharing and printing images. 

You can get iPhoto with new Macs, from Mac App Store or as part of the popular iLife suite. It may not match the prowess of rivals like Photoshop elements but offers decent bang for the buck. You will need OS X 10.9 Mavericks to run the software. The app performance and speed is improved owing to 64 bit support on compatible Macs.  

As always, the UI of iPhoto is really sleek and well organized. It looks so much better than UI of competitors like Picasa and the full-screen mode is really nice to use. In Full screen mode, you can use all features of the app. The three-panel view is there with main viewable are in middle of sidebar and info and adjustments. In Library view, you can skim through the thumbnails with mouse cursor. You can make use of the app’s zoom slider in both editing and viewing modes.  

When you connect a camera or external drive containing images, the app’s import window appears. The app supports popular RAW file formats. After image import is complete, you can organize them in many ways. You can segregate images based on Events. Group of selected images can be stored as albums for later use.

Nowadays, nearly all image organizer and editor apps come with face recognition feature and Apple cannot lag behind in this! The ideal way to organize your photos in the app is Faces. You can tag images and once that is complete, finding images with a particular tag is simple. You can enable geo- tagging in Advanced Preferences so that photos uploaded to online sharing sites retain the information.

While iPhoto is not an advanced image editor, basic retouching and enhancement is breeze. The auto-enhance is mostly useful. You can also edit attributes manually. Saturation, contrast and exposure can be adjusted using sliders. You can also adjust the histogram. Its red-eye correction produces decent results too. It identifies and eliminates red eye issues in all eyes in an image easily. The blemish retouch tool also works very well.

The new maps feature in iPhoto work well and GPS-tagged photos are shown on spot of capturing. For images lacking GPS data, you can manually enter location in info panel. The location tracking is fairly accurate, most of the times but the iOS version offers more precision. The app supports Photo Stream feature of iCloud. Now iPhoto supports Photo Sharing-ideal for several users to upload and view images. You may add video clips for sharing as well.

iPhoto’s new share button makes sharing images simpler with several online sites. There is a Facebook share option but it does not let you post on timeline of a friend. For Flickr sharing, you can set the viewing privacy. You can also post to Twitter. These online sharing options make iPhoto race ahead of Picasa.

In iPhoto the print interface can be accessed from the Share button itself. You get full screen preview before printing. There are several custom sizes to pick from. You can select from Professional output options. The app has decent slideshow feature. You get 12 neat themes and music options.

Positive Points:
•    Excellent integration with iCloud.
•    Enhanced Image sharing options.
•    Native 64 bit support.
•    Good slideshow creation features.

Negative Points:
•    Runs only on OS X 10.9.

Conclusion:
Apple's iPhoto remains the user friendly yet feature rich entry level image organizer and editor for Mac users. The new version sports some usability and interface changes that cannot be called drastic. Apple has made some tweaks in layout that reduce clutter. The full screen view is excellent and basic image adjustment tools work well. The red eye correction feature and Faces also work as desired most of the times. The app comes free with new Macs while standalone license cost is not much. In overall features and especially online sharing, it trounces rivals like Picasa. The users will benefit from enhanced iCloud integration features and Photo Stream capabilities. The big downer in this versatile app is lack of support for older versions of Mac OS X.

Rating: 3.5/5
