Following the launch of iOS 6 which brings Shared Photo Streams, Apple rolled out updates to its photography software on the Mac and iOS platforms, including updates to the iPhoto application on both fronts.
iPhoto on the Mac, now available at version 9.4, adds support for the new Shared Photo Streams feature, but only on OS X Mountain Lion. Customers running older versions of the Mac operating system are left out this time.
However, there are a few changes in iPhoto 9.4 that all users can enjoy. For example, comments can now be added to photos after publishing them to Facebook, and there’s a bunch of new card and calendar themes for everyone to use.
Also, a new option in the File menu opens the current photo library in Aperture, if the customer has it installed. The usual performance and stability improvements are also included. Download iPhoto for Mac
Moving onto the iOS front, iPhoto 1.1 for iPhone and iPad is a much bigger update. A mile-long changelog accompanies this release, which is why we’ll only focus on the most important features in this story (avid users can jump straight to the full release notes
, if they wish).
iPhoto 1.1 now supports the fourth-generation iPod touch “and later” models, including the fifth-generation SKU with its larger 4-inch display.
Some “coaching tips” have been added to the Help system, and Apple is throwing in six new ink effects – such as Chalk and Palette Knife – all designed by the Cupertino giant.
iTunes File Sharing can now be used to import full-resolution photos, and you can now save multiple photos to the Camera Roll in one tap.
Facebook fans will be glad to learn that they can now upload videos straight to their favorite social network. They can also set locations and friend tags when posting photos.
All this and much, much more, can be had in the latest version of iPhoto for iOS. Download and enjoy! Download iPhoto iOS
