What's new in iPhoto?

So, what are some of the new features in this new version of iPhoto? Well, I have to start with the share menu, which is right down here. That combines share, create, and printing all into one handy area. So if you're sending images to Facebook, or making a greeting card, or. Maybe sending a picture to the printer. It's all right here under share. And we're definitely going to look at that a bit closer. Integration with iCloud is also a new feature.

And I'll go to preferences and show you a bit about that. So you can set it up so that you have automatic import of images that are captured with your iPhone or your iPad. They'll come right into your iPhoto library. Or if you want, you can go the other way and when you import pictures into iPhoto, you can send em out to your iOS devices. So this iCloud integration is quite handy. We'll definitely be touching on that. E-mail, wow, email has gotten really fancy.

Let me just select a few images here. We have these beautiful new email templates. And I'll go to share, and we'll go up to mail, that allow you to dazzle your recipients with artistic presentation of your photos, and I'm going to show you how to work these so that you can start sending them right away. And then also there's enhancements for Facebook. I think the integration is a lot better with Facebook. Slideshow production has gotten a few new tricks, and we're going to talk about how to make a really nice slideshow.

And then, finally, we have full screen viewing. We've had it before, but it's been enhanced, and I'll show you how. Now you have a projects shelf. So if you're making books and cards, all those projects will show up here and a nice presentation of your albums. So we have lots to look forward to. I'm going to show you how this stuff works so you can start taking advantage of it right away and really up your game in this version of iPhoto.
