Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers.

iPhoto ’11 9.2.2

Send Article to a Friend

While it offers just a single change, Apple’s updated iPhoto ’11 9.2.2 will be a welcome release for many. The update enables you to delete individual photos from your iCloud Photo Stream, which should help you winnow out any mistaken photos you may have shot on your iPhone or iPad (or, perhaps, reams of screenshots saved to the Photos app by a preschooler). Previously, the only way to delete any photos from Photo Stream was to delete them all from iCloud via a reset performed in iCloud’s online account settings. ($14.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update through Software Update or the Mac App Store, 256.9 MB)

I wish you had a Take Control book for iPhoto '11. My wife has been taking some great photos, but whenever she sits down in front of iPhoto she gets overwhelmed and gives up. Now she just gets overwhelmed before she starts and doesn't even try.

Yes, having written about every previous version of iPhoto for Peachpit's Visual QuickStart Guide series, I'm quite troubled by iPhoto '11 - I find it confusing and inconsistent (and in some ways, I'm glad I didn't have to write about it, since it's a tough program to explain).

We've thought about a Take Control book, but we've never come up with what seems like a good approach.
