Apple updates iPhoto '11 to 9.1.1

updated 05:35 pm EST, Tue December 21, 2010

Fixes several bugs, adds e-mail options

Apple this afternoon updated its photo-organizing and editing app iPhoto '11, part of the iLife '11 suite, to v9.1.1 -- adding new themes to its built-in e-mail options and restoring both a preference to allow photos to be e-mailed using external mail applications and the option to size photo attachments as Small, Medium or Large. The update also addresses a number of issues and improves overall stability.

While users could always email photos from iPhoto '11 by simply dragging a photo directly from iPhoto to a mail program's icon on the dock, the option to do so automatically was missing from preferences until now. Also missing was the ability for the user to pick from a preset of resolutions to avoid sending large photos when not necessary.

The update also addresses a number of issues with ratings, including having the scrolling overly now correctly display ratings when photos are sorted by ratings, and fixing the sort when a rating is changed and photos are sorted by rating. Other bugs addressed include preserving the sort order of Events after upgrading a library, Event titles in Photo view can now be edited, a fix for occasional duplicate photos when uploading to a MobileMe album, removing a bug in the calendar text editing controls and improving the reliability of upgrading a library from an earlier version of iPhoto.

The update is available now through Software Update for iPhoto '11 owners and is recommended for all users. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 or higher. The update comes in at around 65MB.

    Could have used this an hour ago...

    But thanks Apple, it's nice that you restore old features that everyone used. *rolls eyes*

    This still doesn't do it for me

    When you restore full screen editing and get rid of those fixed edit windows maybe I'll re-install. I need the ability to compare two images, side-by-side in full screen, not on 60% of the screen. Those fixed editing tool windows are just plain dumb.

    What do you mean they added an option for people to email via some third-party email application. Doesn't everyone use Apple Mail?

    One would have to be insane to think that, just because they set some preference that said you wanted to use some other application for your mail, that you'd expect Apple to have to spend the manpower and time to actually support that decision.
