iPhoto ’11 9.1.1
Apple wants to make holiday photos even easier to share, based on its recent release of iPhoto ’11 9.1.1, which includes several specific fixes and improvements. Most notably, you can now set a preference to open a specific external email application when you send photos (rather than relying on iPhoto ’11’s built-in email capability), and two new email themes are available. You can choose whether to attach photos in small, medium, or large sizes when attaching them within iPhoto, too. Upgrading from earlier versions of iPhoto is now more reliable and preserves the sort order for events. Other bugs addressed include duplicated photos in MobileMe albums, issues with sorting photos by
rating, and problems with inaccessible text formatting controls when editing a photo calendar. ($49 new as part of iLife ’11, free update, 62.09 MB)
New events still are created at the top and not the bottom of the event window. This was a change in 11 and needs fixed.
Will this fix the face recognition problems people seem to be having?
How do you have your events sorted? If by date, new events will be created at the bottom.
I am having freeze problems with iPhoto 11, and the update 9.1.1 didn't fix it. I have had this problem consistently since the 9.1 was released, but only on one older iMac (the trouble iMac is running OSX 10.6.5 and has an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz). I have done everything suggested to rebuild the iPhoto photo file, but it freezes, displays squiggly images, and eventually comes back to life but can take several minutes. Anyone found a solution please let me know.
during adding images to Iphoto 9.1.1, I got the deaded "YOU MUST RESTART YOUR MACINTOSH" in several languages and after restarting, I got a message that my files needed to be corrected or other words. I complied and now I have lost the Thumb nail image on most images. There is a blank screen with the image size outlined by a dashed line and the image will show on a double click,
I wonder when Apple will update iPhoto (and Preview) to respect user-added metadata, which these programs often unceremoniously throw away if you so much as crop a pixel off your image.
The Metadata Working Group's new guidelines state that "user metadata must not be deleted without specific user intent". Apple is a member of the MWG; let's see if they decide to play by their own rules.
