OK this software doesn't cost too much so if you're a big user of iMovie and/or Garageband you'll be pretty pleased with the new features I should think. iWeb and iDVD get no new features. However, if you are a big user of iPhoto 09, be prepared to lose a lot of features you may like, or consider downgrading back to iPhoto 09 before the new version touches your photo libraries.

The good things I found out about iPhoto 11 are some neat new slideshows, playing video within the app (and slideshows), smoother book making and it seems quicker to manually assign faces. There may be other improvements I haven't discovered or don't use.

iPhoto '11 loses a lot of things like the ability to view or edit your photos full screen (the new 'full screen' mode is just a sort of iPad interface, not sure why, I'm still using a mouse and a keyboard). There is a lot of wasted space and inflexibility now due to panels being used instead of the old HUD overlay windows for info, effects, etc. It isn't possible, for example, to crop/enhance, etc while also seeing the file information. As soon as you require any info or edit controls you lose about a quarter of a laptop screen. You can only zoom in on your photo when the edit panel is present.

Quickly reviewing photos is harder - you'll need the large info panel open to see any file information because the small panel that used to sit at the bottom of the sidebar is gone. Another change in the sidebar is the missing count of photos in smart albums.

The application is no faster than before (except for the book-making interface, which seems better) and in some areas performance is much worse. Scrolling thumbnails used to be the benchmark for iPhoto but it seems like Apple have just given up and it now jumps jerkily from row to row.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buying iLife to get iDVD 31 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase
Great product as usual from Apple. The only frustration is having to buy it to get iDVD as Apple do not include this program in its new products. Be careful when installing. make sure you only install the iDVD program as the other programs are older versions and will cause problems.

The iDVD software is not included when you buy a new iMac with IOS Lyon or later as your operating system . If you go to Apple you will be told that the iDVD software is no longer available. Being able to get the iLife '11 software from Amazon is a God send, particularly if like me you want to create DVD's with the iMac.
With the iLife '11 software you can "custom install" the missing iDVD software from the disc.

Easy to order, cost effective and a life saver when you pay for a Apple machine and expect the software to be included as advertised and it isn't there. This is the way to get and complete the iLife '11 suite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling Upgrade to iPhoto in iLife '11 14 Nov. 2010
My wife and I have used iPhoto 09 to email photos of family to our relations abroad, and have been reasonably happy with the way it enabled one to do this. I bought the upgrade to iLife '11 because of the new easier book creation function. That function is pretty good, I'm happy with it. But we are going to have to return iLife '11 and reinstall iLife 09 simply because iPhoto '11 is a downgrade when it comes to emailing photos. There are now only two options, and both are pretty poor. You can send the original image (i.e., big file size) or you can send the Apple-specified "Optimised" photo. This latter creates a one-megabyte version of your photo, which is all of about 4 inches wide, yet it is at 72 dpi and so you can't enlarge it usefully. Normally the same image size at 72 dpi created say in PhotoShop and saved in jpeg format would weigh in at about 200k max. Why the "optimised" jpeg which iPhoto creates is 5 times the needed file-size is beyond my ability to explain or figure out. The photo is surrounded by an large unwanted and purposeless white border, this is not an option, you have to have it. But even that should not create this large file size.

Where have the other file-size options gone??? In previous versions you could choose from 4 different settings. This so-called upgrade has reduced that to just two options, and neither are useful.

This is a shockingly bad upgrade, and a waste of time and money. Until Apple get their act together, this is software to be avoided at all costs!

I am a multi-decade and committed Apple Mac user by the way. I have never seen such rubbish software emerge from Cupertino before, pretty disappointing to say the least.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stick with the previous version 28 Oct. 2010
This is an awful product and really should have been given more testing before release. Apple have agreed to refund the purchase price because of the problems I was experiencing, especially with iPhoto '11.

The new iPhoto has some great ideas; unfortunately these appear to have come at the expense of more basic functions. I reported to Apple that when I was typing information, each letter was repeated two or three times or more. I was told by Apple that this was because there was an issue around importing the iPhoto library from previous versions. I followed their instructions and created a new library (which appeared to resolve the problem temporarily) then as I organised the rebuilt library into events, the problem returned.

iPhoto '09 is wonderful. I suggest that you hold fire on iPhoto '11 until Apple have worked some of the bugs out.
