Apple Outs iLife 11

At its “Back to the Mac” event today, Apple unveiled the latest update to its iLife suit for the Mac.

iPhoto has been enhanced with a full screen mode so you can lose yourself in your holiday photos, and see your geotagged located in Places more clearly. The presentation of albums has also been influenced by the iPad with images now stacked on top of each other. iPhoto also offers tighter integration with Facebook, with the ability to publish to your wall with a single click, and you can also email a selection of photos from inside the application.

At the launch Steve Jobs, was particularly proud of the new slideshows feature with 12 new themes to choose from, and it is also easier to create a Book for printing.

iMovie now offers greater control over audio editing, and there’s a new feature that enables users to create ‘fun’ trailers – we can’t wait for the results to litter YouTube. The Face Detection has also been imported from iPhoto and into iMovie, while Garageband now has full screen modes for its Lessons feature.

iLife ’11 is available immediately for £45, while a 5-license pack is available for £69.

@Sleeper - iPhoto is very good though - the rest I'm not so sure about. What I've noticed though is that in the App Store screenshots, the iLife apps are on sale individually. So, I'm going to wait until the OS X App Store is released, and hope I can then buy iPhoto by itself.

@Sleeper, I guess you didn't watch keynote.

Show me a single product from Microsoft & Google that will do it for free and has the same features.

Pretty much everythign in Google's app suite and Microsoft's Live Essentials.


Which is obviously included in the price - I have a Mac by the way - or it would be a free download for upgrades (like Google and MS) and not £45.

I have a Mac and used to use Iphoto etc but not anymore! Adobe lightroom 3 smashed it too the floor in ease of use etc. Well for me anyway but the main reason is because it stores them in folders and not in apples own package thing. I know lightroom 3 is like £260 but as a student i napped it for £59 (:

Garageband. Only thing free like that is Ardour, but ease of use is a light year away. I can understand most people don't has a use for it, but if you do then it's worth all the £45

Hold on, can anything from google and MS do any movie editing? Or DVD creation?
