It’s no secret that Apple is moving away from packaged software, with even OS X Lion being sold as a Mac App Store exclusive. As it turns out, there’s one noteworthy side effect of this new push -- the copy of iLife you get free with every new Mac will also work on any other system using the same Apple ID as well.
Software updates! Who doesn’t love ‘em? If you’re having issues with iPhoto or even with OpenType fonts under Snow Leopard 10.6.7, Apple has a pair of updates waiting to make your day -- provided that you download them first, of course.
While there hasn’t been much digital ink on the subject, apparently iPhoto ’11 has been giving nothing but grief to Mac users with NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT graphics cards. But relief appears at hand, simply by installing this week’s Mac OS X 10.6.7 update.
As more homes become networked for modern Wi-Fi technology, having centralized storage that can be shared by the entire household makes good sense. Thankfully, network-attached storage (NAS) is plentiful and cheap -- and with a few caveats, can even be used to get your iPhoto collection off your computer and onto your network.
Wireless all-in-one inkjet printers are all the rage these days, and from a quick glance at the specs, you’d be led to believe that they’re mostly the same.

With iPhoto's new card and calendar making feature, it's pretty easy to make a last minute keepsake for relatively cheap, and without having to don your parka and head out to the store or post office.

The new iPhoto ’11 looks amazing—and that’s a great thing for software that helps you get the most out of your photos. But it’s more than just a pretty face, letting you actually do some pretty amazing things with all those pixels. Apple built in major enhancements to the full-screen mode, slideshow templates, and online sharing tools. But iPhoto isn’t just about zeroes and ones—’11 boasts improved book-design tools and a new letterpress-card feature for those extra-special anniversaries and events, making it that much easier and more satisfying to bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds.
Right on the heels of last week’s 9.0.1 update which addressed potential data loss when updating your library from a previous version, Apple has released iPhoto 9.1 on Thursday. Among the changes are the ability to create and order calendars, additional letterpress holiday greeting cards and bug fixes.
With the release of iLife '11 comes a freshly polished version of iPhoto, the digital photo manager that's been helping us keep our photos in tip-top shape since 2001. The updated software introduces a handful of new and improved features that will surely make it easier for you to organize, edit, and share those precious digital memories. We put some tips together to get you started with the new release, or to give those of you who still haven't upgraded a sneak peak at the new update.
