4.0 out of 5 stars The book is fine for as long as it is relevant, 21 July 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: iPhoto: The Missing Manual: 2014 release, covers iPhoto 9.5 for Mac and 2.0 for iOS 7 (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)
Am using this with a heavy heart because of the expense I have incurred buying it for my new iMac only to read that in the Autumn a new Operating system (which eventually I will have to install to be able to use newer software being developed) WITHOUT iPhoto is issued. How are we supposed to continue use things that are suitable for our purpose if the companies constantly make them obsolete? The book is fine for as long as it is relevant.

Apple has done this in the past with the excellent iDVD software, which was removed from the operating system on a previous upgrade. Apparently Apple believes DVDs are obsolete - try telling that to a 92 year old relative who wants to see family holiday videos and only has a DVD player and no Internet!
However, in that case at least - and it may well be true for iPhoto too - software that was included with earlier versions of OSX remain on the system when it is upgraded. iDVD was there after the upgrade. For a MacBook I bought after the upgrade, I purchased iLife 11 from Amazon and retro-installed iDVD, though that did have its challenges.
So, hopefully you will find that iPhoto will still be usable after Yosemite is released.
For my part, I'll check that out on my MacBook at the time and if iPhoto vanishes, I simply won't upgrade my iMac to Yosemite.

Apple now has this obsession with its own hardware iPhones and iPads to the exclusion of all else and barely even support Android phones ( at least when uploading images to Photos)
iPhoto has been replaced by the dummed down Photos which is purely geared to making the iPhone IOS system compatible with OS.,I have just ourchased an iMac ( with Yosemite and photos) and CANNOT get iPhoto downloaded from Apps.
Apple have effectively deleted iPhoto AND their programme Aperture - period - and will not be supporting them any more
I also have a MacAir - 2013 - ( with Mavericks) doubt I will make the upgrade available to Yosemite - or if i do , hopefully iPhoto and the original iMovie , will remain intact.
