Apple released iPhoto 9.2 on Wednesday, an update to the company’s consumer photo management and manipulation software that adds support for iCloud and iOS 5, including iCloud’s Photo Stream feature. The update also includes support for new gestures, new navigation features, and a few bug fixes.
With Photo Stream, when you take a photo on an iCloud-enabled device, it will be pushed to all of your iOS devices, your Mac, and/or your PC. Photo Stream keeps the last 1,000 pictures you took, and users can grab any image from the Stream and save them or otherwise manipulate them.
Apple’s patch notes:
iPhoto 9.2 supports compatibility with iCloud and iOS 5. This update also addresses minor stability, performance and compatibility issues, including:
- Left and right swipe gestures can now be used to navigate between photos in Magnify (1-up) view
- Previously imported photos are now displayed in a separate section of the Import window
- Book/calendar themes and card categories can now be selected using a pop-up menu in the carousel view
- Resolves an issue that could cause some pages of books to print incorrectly
- Rebuilding a library now correctly preserves saved slideshows and books
The update is recommended for all users of iPhoto ‘11.
The update is a 376.3MB download in Software Update, and you can see it if you have iLife ‘11 on your Mac and once you’ve updated to OS X 10.7.2 (Lion), which was also released on Wednesday.
You can also download a 357.17MB standalone installer from Apple’s download site.
