iPhoto has been discontinued by Apple and has been replaced by the
Photos application in OS X Yosemite.Â The app is no longer available for download or use. Download.com presents data on the last available version for informational purposes only.
iPhoto 11 is the latest version of Apple's popular photo manipulation and sharing app. With iPhoto 11 you can touch up photos, create slideshows, organize photos in albums, and share photos quickly via social media and photo sites.
iPhoto 11 is simple to use. The interface lets you quickly upload photos from attached devices, open folders of images, or grab photos from other sources. Once you have all the photos imported, you can create albums and slideshows that act like movies, and share them with others easily. A cool new feature in iPhoto 11 called Photo Stream lets you take a picture with an iPad or iPhone and have it automatically appear in iPhoto 11! The new version also makes it easier to e-mail or upload photos. Another new feature we really like is full-screen mode, which takes up your entire display instead of using frames. Forget buying a digital photo frame: your iMac or MacBook does a better job!
iPhoto 11 is an update of a popular app and we liked the changes. Photo Stream was the one we found ourselves using a lot, especially with the higher-res cameras on today's iDevices. The editing capabilities can turn an average shot into a great shot, but that's just scratching the surface of what iPhoto 11 can do.
iPhoto gets a new look with stunning full-screen views for Events, Faces, Places, and Albums that let you take advantage of every inch of your Mac display. iPhoto also offers new ways to share and showcase your photos. You can upload your photos to your Facebook Timeline and even view friends' comments right in iPhoto. Turn your email into something really special with ten Apple-designed photo mail templates. iPhoto '11 works with iCloud Photos, so the photos you take on your iOS devices automatically appear in iPhoto, and you can share selected photos with other people. Add movement and music to your photos with one of 12 dynamic slideshow themes. iPhoto '11 introduces a new way to create professional-quality photo books quickly and easily. And new letterpress cards let you combine your photos and text with elegant imprinted designs.
I use Windows myself, but have to help people with Apple and IPhoto. It is not user friendly, not intuitive at all, can't find the photos on the hard disk, they become a sort of ghost pictures, only viewable in IPhoto, like IPhoto doesn't want to let go of the pictures? "they are mine now"? There is a last import section, last 12 months section, trash, marked, a library, happenings, photos section, I'm completly lost what it does and how it thinks and works... if you copy them to 10 different places, rename them, change them, give other names, then throw 1 of them in the trash, they all disappear... Well, don't even know if this is a good example, even not sure if I know how to rename them, but it really gives me headaches this program, can't explain why though, even that! And my parents both 79 and 80 work with it, Apple users, even old ones, don't seem to have any of the problems I do, maybe I'm crazy!

Version: Apple iPhoto 9.5.1
User friendly, interfaces with Mac Mail to easily browse photos for email attachment, easy to sort and delete photos.
No option to apply photo borders.
I tried Corel Aftershot Pro on my iMac, but got frustrated with their directory (difficult to move files around) and inability to easily delete unwanted photos. I came back to iPhoto on our iMac and am very happy with it. My husband uses the Photo Browser feature with Mac Mail quite often. It's an easy way to search for and insert photos into email. Overall, iPhoto is a great user-friendly program.

Version: Apple iPhoto 9.2.3
Has many tools in one: editing, slideshow, photo sharing, album creation, and more.
Nothing of any consequence.
A versatile program for photo buffs that makes Macs more appealing to anyone who's into photography. The photo editing tool is somewhat limited, but then this is a free program; if you need more versatility in editing photos, get Photoshop.
