I bought iPhoto for iOS way back when it had just come out, used it for a week and gave up on it. Decided there were a lot of things Apple still had to figure out, and I would wait for them to get to it. However now, more than a year later I come to iPhoto and find that though it's easier to control, it's still not very useful. I'm a Mac user, and I use both iPhoto and Aperture on my Mac. iPhoto I use to organize, and Aperture I use to retouch. I have a library of about 120Gb. I do this because I find that iPhoto is simple enough to manage for organising and creating albums, but Aperture gives me the real freedom to retouch and enhance photos to exactly how I want them. Enter the iOS version of iPhoto. This seemed like a good idea because I figured it would let me edit photos on the fly, and then simply sync them back to my library. This is far from the truth, however. Granted, the current version of iPhoto for iPad works marvellously, I can edit photos about twice as fast as I could on the Mac, and the small tweaks I do are streamlined in the iPhoto for iOS controls making my life easier. However, I can't for the life of me, figure out how to sync the photos back to the corresponding albums in iPhoto for Mac. This creates a rather stupid situation. I'm left with two versions of the photos, one on my iPad (tweaked) and another on my Mac (untweaked). Why don't the tweaks sync? Is this intentional? What is the point of tweaking these photos if the tweaks won't sync back to the Mac? Can someone please explain what is the point of iPhoto for iOS if you cannot sync the tweaks back to your main library? Can it really be designed to simply edit photos that will only be seen on my iPad? And exporting these photos via photo stream is not acceptable. Why would I want to duplicate my photos? Why can't iPhoto for Mac simply read the edits on the iPad and attach them to the corresponding image files? Why? why? why? I'm hoping maybe it's just I'm missing something. Which is why im posting this, hoping someone can show me the way.
