    I have an iPhoto '08 and wondering if I should upgrade to '09 or '11? Am I missing anything if I don't have the upgrades? I'm happy with the '08, it seems like I have the features already in the '09 like faces, places and facebook integration. I think the only thing missing is the full screen feature in '11? Is that worth upgrading? I know a lot of people having problems with the iPhoto '11 so it's probably not worth upgrading but then is it worth upgrading to '09? Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I have been using iPhoto '9 and it's good as previous versions. I can't tell u what it has that iPhoto '8 doesnt have.

    I too want to upgrade to the latest version but have been reluctant since there were so many problems. But now thats the only version that supports photo stream so.....

    U that have upgraded have u stayed? Is it ok? Do u wish u were back on a previous version? Has '11 gotten better??

    If you are happy so why bother?


    If you are happy with iPhoto '08, why upgrade?

    There are two things that springs to mind when you are asking for new futures.
    A.) Fullscreen ability
    B.) iCloud streaming

    Then again, it only cost around 20 US Dollar to buy the latest version in App Store. Take with you a lunch box to work a couple of days and you have saved in the cost ;) .

    Mostly it's slow as cold tar. Then a lot of people were having problems with photos getting deleted during the upgrade.
