    Hi,

    I was wondering if I should upgrade to iLife '08?

    The main reason I want to, is that I need the Time Machine compatibility in iPhoto.

    Is iLife '08 a good upgrade? Should I upgrade?

    Thanks.

    If you need a feature than it's always a good upgrade I guess, but I think the iPhoto upgrade in iLife '08 was pretty good and you'd be silly not to say it's a good reason to upgrade too.

    Yes, I really like the iPhoto that's in iLife '08.

    It was a little sluggish when it first came out, but a few recent updates have REALLY tweaked it up. It runs beautifully now (I'm using it on a G4 right now, I can't imagine it on an Intel duo).

    I like both IPhoto 08 and IDVD, but I'm not a fan of the new IMovie. I am using IMovie 06. My opinion is it's worth upgrading.....just hold on to the previous version of IMovie as it provides more control.

    Hi,

    I read somewhere that Apple are offering iMovie HD 6 as a free download for users of iLife '08.

    Is this correct?

    Thanks.

    Yup. Clickety click click.

    Go ahead. Run both and decide which you prefer.

    I am using the 06 version which I got for free. Between the IMovie 06 and the new components of 08, I am happy. :D

    The ability to group photos into Events is fantastic. It's worth paying the purchase price for that feature alone.

    Go for it.
