If there's one thing about iPhoto for iPad and iPhone that I've never been too happy with, it's that the apps aren't exactly self-explanatory and Apple doesn't provide much in terms of an onboard guided tour. Long-time Apple developer and publisher Saied Ghaffari has just published a new iBook ...

After months of deliberation, I finally brought home a new addition to our family -- a digital SLR camera. With the DSLR comes a plethora of options I didn't have before, with the ability to shoot RAW images being at the top of the list. My husband and I passed the camera back and forth to take ...

Not too much in this one -- the latest update to iPhoto is mainly just stability fixes. There is one mentioned issue that causes iPhoto quitting when dealing with multiple user accounts on the system, but otherwise everything else is just smoothing out the app. iPhoto 9.2.3 is now available i...

Earlier today, Steve Sande showed you how to beam photos using the new iPhoto app. Now it's my turn, and I'll briefly discuss what's actually happening when you use this new feature.
