iPhoto ’11 9.2

Send Article to a Friend

In the massive iCloud-related set of software updates, Apple released iPhoto ’11 9.2. Along with providing compatibility with iCloud’s Photo Stream feature, iPhoto 9.2 adds left and right swipe gestures for navigating between photos in Magnify (1-up) view, displays previously imported photos in a separate section of the Import window, and enables you to choose book/calendar/card themes from a pop-up menu in the carousel view. Several bugs have also been fixed, including one that could cause pages of books to print incorrectly and another that could lose saved slideshows and books when rebuilding a library. It’s easiest to get iPhoto 9.2 via Software Update or the Mac App Store. ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 357.18 MB)
