Tutorial Description

iLife '09 is here!

Even though I've only had the package a couple of days, how could I not resist doing a show this week about one of the applications in the newly updated iLife '09 suite. Some significant enhancements across the board but I decided to focus in on the new features of iPhoto '09. Apple have introduced two brand new features into iPhoto '09 and added in some great updates to some old favourites, along with additional integration with two of the worlds most popular social networks (FaceBook and Flickr)

The two major enhancements are Faces and Places.

Faces allows you to finally undertake the task of correctly tagging your photos by identifying the people in them - automatically. Apples stunning implementation of face detection and recognition, allows you to correctly identify all the people in your iPhoto library to search and organise thousands of photos. In the show, I take you through the steps of setting up faces with some hints and tips on how to optimise faces detection and recognition on your photos.

Places brings location information to your photo library. If your lucky enough to have a GPS enabled camera or phone (such as the iPhone), iPhoto '09 will analyse the location information contained within each photo and automatically place your photos on a map for easy viewing or searching. If you already have GPS information in your existing photos, it's all done for you automatically. If you don't have such data, iPhoto '09 also allows you to add in location information manually to your existing photos with integration with Google Maps.
