    Remember to leave all of your thoughts of iPhoto 6, and the review in the comments section under the review :)

    It's pretty much the same to me. Though.. it's quite cool to be able to view the photo and the background blacks out and i can zoom in and out whenever I want. I still have yet to explore it in-depth. The weird thing though that it did was the fact that it took all my photos and put them into a new folder different from where my photos were originally at. Some pictures were left where they were before, and the others moved 2 subfolders away. So... weird.

    Its too bad that Apple had to use a Very incompatible implementation of RSS for their Photocasting


    Shades of Microsoft's Internet Explorer there. :(

    Overall I found iLife 6 disappointing. iPhoto 6 is the best but still, Apple could add more functionality. As for performance, I found iPhoto 6 to be no faster than 5 ( though I only have around 3000 photos , so if I had more I may notice ).

    Its a shame you can't compare side by side the same photo ( before and after editing ).


    At least red eye works better ; red eye in iPhoto 5 was completely hopeless.

    before importing iPhoto should ask me for a few metadata stuff.

    2 or three pull down menus, an advanced button if i want to create custom information.

    you mean you want iPhoto do do what Aperture does?

    I haven't seen any evidence of this being an evil scheme to "kill RSS" as that guy fears... just a lack of attention to the matter that Apple can (and should) correct in an update.

    You know on in the source pane, was there ever a section in the info panel to enter tags/comments directly? Its there now, and very nice that it is. No more control-i. Just start typing immediately into the box. I dont recall it being in iPhoto 05.
