A closer look at iLife '09

We have a slew of photos from iLife '09 which was being shown at the Apple Booth at the Expo, which was announced Tuesday morning with updated versions of iPhoto, iDVD, iWeb, and GarageBand (with new tutorials and self-learning functions). It is expected to ship by the end of the month and will be included as part of Apple's Mac Box Set bundle, which is also set to ship in the same time frame. iLife's iPhoto has added a Faces option for navigation using facial recognition, which is now built in to the application and has learning capabilities. Slideshows have been upgraded in iPhoto and Geo-tagging allows users to search for photos by location. iMovie has added image stabilization and new precision editing capabilities, GarageBand has added music lessons hosted by major musicians and iWeb has added widgets, allowing users to quickly integrate timers, HTML code, iSight links and more.

    Check out the QuickTime demo on Apple website. Both iPhoto and iMovie are very impressive. The parts that blows me away are facial recognition (finding the same person from all of your photo collections), photo shoot location recognition (via newest camera that has GPS built-in), and slide show (very creatively done). For iMovie, stabilizing shaky video shot and incorporating effects on the fly are impressive.
