iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iSight See Updates -- Apple last week released updates to three of its iLife '05 applications, providing a small but welcome collection of bug fixes. iPhoto 5.0.2 (a 5.5 MB download) gains stability and improved performance, especially on PowerPC G3-based Macs. It also allows resizable thumbnails in book layout mode and improves slideshow performance. iMovie HD 5.0.2 (a 2.7 MB download) addresses audio and video synchronization, adds better support for pass-through devices (such as analog-to-digital converters), and improves exporting HDV (high definition) video back to the camera. It also seems to fix a bug where titles would disrupt DV video clips, and better handles iMovie 4 projects that used speed-adjusted clips. iDVD 5.0.1 (a 2.6 MB download) improves stability and compatibility with iMovie HD and with iPhoto slideshows. Lastly, Apple updated the iSight software to version 1.0.3 (a 1.1 MB download), which improves the audio recording capabilities of the tiny video camera. All four updates are available via Software Update, or as separate downloads. [JLC]
