iphotologoThe next version of iPhoto will be redesigned to be more like the iOS version of iPhoto, according to Belgian website Apple Weetjes [Google Translate].

The report includes a couple of details about potential new features. The new Mac version of iPhoto is said to gain the excellent iPhoto Journals feature and a redesigned photo retouching system, both inspired by the iOS version of iPhoto. The site also claims that the new iPhoto will require OS X Lion or Mountain Lion -- Snow Leopard won't be supported.

Apple Weetjes doesn't have much of a track record on rumors, but the features they mention do seem likely to make their way to the Mac version of iPhoto at some point.

I hope that Apple integrates iPhoto into the Photos app on iOS, it makes no sense to have two apps considering they have the exact same function bar a few photo editing features on iPhoto.

Yay! Let's dumb everything down even more! WTF has happened to apple... They used to have excellent products.


Have you even used the App? Its got much more to offer than the current iPhoto app for Mac.

Seriously. Everyone needs to get off the "Apple are dumbing down everything" bandwagon :rolleyes:

Interesting. I'm guessing it will be optimally used with the trackpad since it seems that is the direction Apple is going. What would be cool is if you could transfer pictures via a home's Wifi between the iOS and Mac version w/o going outside the program or app or having to use iCloud.

You can publish the photo's to Photostream but I believe it lessons the MP.

For an average user this would be a nice change. The rest of us photography snobs can keep using what we use.

They really need to have iOS iPhoto sync up with Mac iPhoto. It doesn't make a lot of sense to have two separate libraries and force the users to do a bunch of legwork to keep them up to date. Ideally, we would have an option to back up our libraries to iCloud (iPhoto in the Cloud?) for a fee? The current solution is a bit rubbish, I think. :confused: /opinion

Do you understand how large photos are? My low end DSLR makes files that are about 15MB a piece. Some of the high end models such as the Nikon D800 make photos up to 75MB. Lets use my camera for example. I typically take about 250-400 shots per shoot. Assuming each file is around 15MB, that would mean I have between 3.7 and 6 GB of data. Like most in the US, I also have low upload bandwidth. To be exact, I get about 1.5megaBITs up, or 192 kilobytes per second. At that rate, it would take over five and a half hours just to upload 250 shots to iCloud. If I had a nice D800, it would take 27 hours to upload those shots on my connection. Also note that on one vacation, in which I toured Europe, I took over 2000 photos. Do you see how ridiculous it would be to actually use iCloud? It is not a viable option.
Photostream is a consumer product. It is designed to push iDevice photos to other devices, getting rid of the need to transfer your photos to your computer. Doing so, it backs up your photos to your PC, without the need to do any work.

For $100, you can get 55GB of yearly storage. That will satisfy 99.9% of the population. The fact that you may be in the 0.1 percent, is tough luck :P.

Lucky Apple and Canon didn't forget about you :
