Apple Intros iLife '08
Tuesday, August 7, 2007
Posted by: Brian

Apple today introduced iLife '08, which it says is the most significant upgrade ever to the award- winning suite of digital lifestyle applications, featuring a major new version of iPhoto and a completely reinvented iMovie. iPhoto '08 automatically organizes photo libraries into Events that let users more easily manage their growing photo collections, and iMovie '08 introduces an entirely new way for users to quickly make movies and share them online. Both iPhoto and iMovie integrate seamlessly with the new .Mac Web Gallery, Apple's new service for .Mac members to instantly create and host stunning online websites for their photos and videos. iLife '08 also features iWeb '08, with live web widgets such as Google Maps that let users create even more dynamic websites, and GarageBand '08, with its new Magic GarageBand feature that makes it fun and easy for both musicians and non-musicians to create great sounding songs. iLife '08 is priced at $79.

Hi All, new to this forum...and new to Macs also...

I was playing around with iPhoto and noticed that it does not have a "resize" feature. I have to use something call "export" to resize each picture. This is really a pain.

Does anyone know if there is a way to resize pics in iPhoto? I've seen third party Mac software that will resize photos easier but it's just sad that iPhoto does not allow you to resize one or more photos on the fly.

I don't think the new iPhoto released today has that feature either.

Thanks,
MiniMe Duo

I'm kind of confused about the new iMovie... is anyone else getting the feeling they're dumbing it down? The method of video editing in this new version seems so totally different, and not quite as in depth. The current iMovie might be a little more complicated for some people to use (not as much instant gratification) but I'm worried about how much they're promoting "fast! easy! bam! done!" etc. Has anyone caught that? I hope this isn't an effort to make iMovie less powerful to make us more experienced video editors buy Final Cut... please tell me I'm wrong...

That's for iMovie with certain Macs.

iDVD requires a 733MHz or faster processor.

iMovie is the one that I'm excited about. It looks like they really opened up a lot of functionality and other options in it! Can hardly wait to try that out!

Yes, I guess I should hold my judgement until I use it. It does look like a cool app, but I just hope the purpose of it hasn't changed, if you know what I mean.

People with PowerPC Minis (or other PowerPC computers of any kind) need to carefully read the system requirements. Most of iLife '08 will run on any just about anything. iMovie will work on any Intel, but only on some fairly high-end PowerPC G5 Macs. It would therefore not work on my Power Mac G5 1.8 GHz SP system, though it would apparently run on my Intel Mini or my MacBook. As noted in another post, iDVD has a requirement also, though it's nowhere near as high-end as iMovie.

Also, there seem to be a number of tutorials on the Apple site as well.

From posts elsewhere, installing iLife '08 apparently doesn't remove iMovie HD 6, AND apparently Apple is making iMovie HD 6 a free download. This addresses people who claim that iMovie '08 is missing features from iMovie HD 6 that they can't live without, and it also addresses those with configurations not supported by iMovie '08.

Now that Apple have realised that navigating around 4 or 5 thousand photos is a pain in the behind, they're allowing users to divide these huge iPhoto collections into what Apple are calling 'Events'.

Wouldn't it be great if Apple produced a version of iTunes that allows users to split their huge music library up into.....well, let's call them..... 'Albums'?

Incredible isn't it? What kind of drugs have I been smoking to come up with that cah-razy idea?
