iPhoto 9.2 implements iCloud, Photo Stream support

updated 02:05 pm EDT, Wed October 12, 2011

Also makes interface changes, bugfixes

Continuing a barrage of software updates, Apple has released a new version of iPhoto, 9.2. The software implements compatibility with iCloud, especially Photo Stream, which syncs and shares photos with iOS 5. Apple has also made some interface upgrades however, for instance adding swipe gestures to photos in the Magnify (1-up) view, and breaking off previously imported photos into a separate part of the Import window.

Card categories and book and calendar themes can be newly selected through a pop-up menu in the carousel view. Bugfixes in the update correct some badly-printed book pages, and ensure that rebuilding a library properly saves old books and slideshows. iPhoto 9.2 is a 376MB download, and requires Lion; v10.7.2 is the only iCloud-compatible version of the OS.

    You may want to wait a bit to upgrade iPhoto to 9.

    I just upgraded Mac OS 10.7.2 and iPhoto to 9.2 unfortunetly iPhoto now crashes systematically. It might be an old plug-in laying around but you might just want to wait a couple of days to install this update.

    Pages next, please

    iCloud under 10.7.2 is not too meaningful without an update to Pages.

    Echoing Davidjoly's comment. iPhoto is no longer able to import images. Crashes every time. Have tried importing from CF cards, SD cards, folders on the hard drive and have even tried importing files taken with different cameras (EOS 5DMkII, Sony HXR-NX70U, Go Pro HD, JPEG files that had been previously exported from iPhoto). All cause the app to quit. On reopen it usually has between 2 and 7 files that have not been imported and it crashes if you try to import at that time.
