iPhoto 11 Update Adds Email App Support

Apple released an update for iPhoto ‘11 on Tuesday that added support for using email applications when sending photos, and also added two new themes for users that prefer to email photos from within the application. iPhoto is Apple’s digital photo management application and is included with the iLife creativity suite for Mac OS X.

iLife’s iPhoto ‘11

The ability to email photos via Mail or other email applications was a feature in earlier versions of iPhoto, but was dropped from iPhoto ‘11 in favor of sending photos only from within the application.

The iPhoto 9.1.1 update added Classic and Journal email themes, improved image sizing options when emailing photos, added the ability to edit event titles in the Photos view, addressed photo sorting issues, fixed a duplicate photo problem with MobileMe albums, improved reliability when upgrading photo albums from earlier versions of iPhoto, and more.

iPhoto 9.1.1 is available as a free update for iLife ‘11 via the Software Update application or as a download at the Apple Support Web site.
