    With the introduction of a Retina display on the new iPad, Apple has updated all of its stock applications to support the higher resolution, also adding updates to several of its applications including GarageBand and iMovie. But the company has also filled out the remainder of its iPad versions of its iLife suite with the launch of iPhoto for iPad, a new application offering photo editing capabilities right on the device.

    iPhoto for iPad offers a broad array of photo editing and comparison features, including auto-enhancements such as straightening photos and fixing contrast. Brush palettes offer a number of editing tools including red-eye removal, lighten, sharpen, soften, and darken. iPhoto can handle images up to 19 megapixels.
    iPhoto for iPad launches today and is priced at $4.99.

    Ha, 'Gallery' is back on iCloud. Welcome back!

    Just witnessed the return of Gallery functionality in iCloud. Great to see it back.

    Also, interesting 'Beam' option in the sharing options. What's that then?

    Beam seems to be a function for sharing files with a nearby iDevice. Phones have similar apps for sharing contacts etc.

    What kind of stupid limitation is that?

    Can you send iOS iPhoto photos to OSX iPhoto easily and keep the structure you've create on iOS?

    ----------

    Yes. Universal application.

    Love it.

    It makes me want Aperture for iPad even MORE than I did before, but still, this is awesome news.

    Does iPhoto run on iPad 1? I understand that a lot of those editing operations would be much slower. But can iPad 1 users buy and use this new app?

    Note: I do not have an iPad 1, that's why I am asking. My mom does, and the built-in photos app isn't very good for organizing photos. I'm hoping iPhoto is and works on her device.

    Edit: i see a reply right before my now saying it's not supported on iPad 1 :(

    My Sony has 24 MP, so this kind of sucks and makes no sense for me then....

    Looks very cool, SO glad I didn't get Photoshop for iPad (even though this release hadn't leaked), particularly since that one is limited to 1600 by 1600. Adobe has to be feeling that fire under their butt right now...

    And funny that the Apple webpages for the app are up saying it's in iTunes but the link gives an error.

    Probably a good thing to be honest. I'm sure it wouldn't run well on it.

    iPhoto should just launch with every iPad. Or be free for every iPad.

    Really?

    Really? photoshop touch has a 1600 x 1600 pixels limitation

    The photo they were editing was from a d300s and the resolution was 4288x2848 and was 12.2MP...pretty awesome if you ask me.

    Not really as Photoshop for iPad does things beyond image touch up that iPhoto won't do. Where they they will be feeling the heat is when some of the other 3rd party image editing Apps skip well past that limit. Although expect to see some of these features being "new" iPad only.

    Also we may actually see an update for Photoshop that increase that limit... again exclusive to the newer iPad and it's improved graphics capacity.

    Would be really cool to use your iPhoto or Aperture Library and have available to make edits and Tag/Rate the photos and they'd go back to the main library.

    Then if you wanted, you could save them locally on the iPad/iPhone.

    and then be able to view them online would be terrific too.

    Does it let us make cards/books/etc??

    I think iPhoto is an OK program. iPhotos card/book printing is SUPERLATIVE; that is the true strength of the program, beating to death all Hallmark stores and print services worldwide forever and ever.

    Seems like this app is basically a suped-up version of the stock Photos app.

    I wonder if Apple will allow us to remove the stock Photos app if we purchase iPhoto?
