They claim it fixes the color shift bug. Has anyone tested it yet to see if it actually does? I'm sure it does, but want to make sure and I'm at work awayfrom my Mac right now.

Hefty download. Hopefully this fixes a few of the glitches and speed problems I have been experiencing...

It did speed it up - mine opened much faster.

I'm not seeing a colour shift when I edit something in iPhoto any longer but those graphs are still changing!
Damn. I really thought they would have got this by now.
Oh well, there's always "Revert to original" :rolleyes:

My pictures used to maintain their color, but they would get like 5% brighter... can anyone confirm that this is fixed as well?

Well, this is a relief, though it seems like it shouldn't have taken this long. Does this require 10.4.2? (If the fix required a corresponding OS fix, then that'd explain the delay.)

As far as the colour issues go, I'm no longer seeing a colour shift with the naked eye when you adjust and click Done... but the histograms are still indicating some change.
Since the changed photograph must be recompressed, isn't it likely that that's what you're seeing in the histogram? Another run through a JPEG compressor will probably cause some impreceptable shifts that a histogram will pick up.

I do hope that all those people who made a fuss last night about 10.4.2 not fixing the iPhoto color bug note that, as others guessed, the fix required an iPhoto update. Jumping to conclusions just makes you look silly in the long run.

Yes, you need to update both OS X and iPhoto to get the fix.

I am just glad that the color issue is finally fixed. That was annoying the hell outta me.

An excellent patch to match 10.4.2, I opened iPhoto and one bounce it was there even my mass amount of photos appeared within a couple of seconds, I'm very impressed.

Rebuild Options...

Not sure if many know this but if you hold Apple+Option you are presented with a dialog for rebuilding of the data.

Now when I last used this it seemed to have put duplicates in my Library of images I edited (rotated, color enhanced, red-eyed, etc.). Is this fixed. I had to manually go through my collection and delete all the duplicates; big ole pain in the arse.

Damn. They have had a long time to fix what is a pretty high use App and its still buggy :(

Oh, good point. Does anyone want to try this on a non-compressed format to check this out? I would but I don't have a camera that does RAW.

I would guess that makosuke's analysis is corrrect. The graph would likely change because of the file format being jpeg. Could someone not test this in Photoshop or a Panther version of iPhoto and see if it does the same thing?

The fixed the "lightening" bug!

Finally, I can use iPhoto! It used to add an extra touch of lighting/brightening every time I saved my adjustments. Someone else in this thread mentioned this...well, it is fixed for me!

And, it opens quicker - only one bounce in the dock - it used to be 3 or 4 for me on my Mac Mini with about 4000 pics.

:)

Applespider- what sort of edit did you make? Did you just do like a 1 pixel crop or something more drastic?

Fixed and faster

Like others have posted, on my my Powerbook (see sig) there is no more adjustment upon saving edits to photos. I only tested jpg's. iPhoto used to take at least 20 seconds to launch and beachball while doing so slowling down everything in general while launching. This time there was only about 2 seconds of beach ball and it launched in about 6 seconds with 5,388 photos.

Finally.

Now if you could only resize photos and actually for the love of Buddha change the actual file names, iPhoto might be useful.

Memory problems not fixed

iPhoto 5 is still a huge memory hog. I had hopes that this fix might bring it back to as good as 4 or 3, but alas. Starting iPhoto takes 875MB of my 1GB of physical memory as well as another couple hundred MB of swap. When can we finally have an iPhoto Pro which can handle a medium size library? (About 7,000 photos in my case) Or at least a port of Picassa?

Amen.


Besides this, iPhoto works well for me

My wife is downloading the iPhoto 5.0.3 currently. So far so good. Apple is certainly having a flurry of updates this week, along with a rise in the stock price.
