Apple’s new iPhoto application is now available as a five dollar download (four Euros) in the App Store, next to the updated versions of GarageBand and iMovie. With this new addition, Apple’s iLife suite has now been fully ported to the iPad.
“With the introduction of iPhoto, we’ve brought the entire suite of iLife apps to iOS and users are going to love it,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, after yesterday's keynote address.
Apple was yet to include the application in the App Store, following yesterday's keynote address.
“Whether brushing an effect onto a photo, shooting a movie trailer or jamming with friends to record a song, iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand let you make amazing creations on iPad and iPhone.”
According to Apple, iPhoto has been completely “reimagined” for the iPad and iPhone.
“Use simple gestures to quickly sort through photos and find your best shots,” reads the App Store description. The app takes full advantage of the Retina display and Multi-Touch gestures, allowing users to control and edit color, exposure and contrast - “you simply touch the parts of the image you want to change,” says Apple.
Users can enhance their photos by adding Apple-designed effects, or by applying adjustments exactly where they want them with fingertip brushes.
You can beam photos between iPhone and iPad, stream photos and slideshows to an Apple TV with AirPlay, use iCloud to publish photo journals to the web, as well as share stuff the traditional way, via Facebook, Flickr and Twitter.
iPhoto is a universal app. It’s compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 Wi-Fi and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G and requires iOS 5.1 or later. Download iPhoto for iPhone and iPad
