Apple, after having recently released iPhoto 2009 (iPhoto ’09) at the Macworld 2009 Expo, has come out to comment on the software that alongside iMovie, iDVD, iWeb and GarageBand is part of iLife ’09. So what does Apple have to say about iPhoto ’09, which by the way won the “Best of Show” award at Macworld?

“What we’ve seen with Face Detection and Geotagging so far is that they haven’t been useful. If you’re not a pro, photo tagging has failed, but with iPhoto it’s really a lot of fun,” says the Vice President of Applications Product Marketing with Apple, Rob Schoeben in an interview for Macworld.


Just as a little reminder, Face Detection or the face recognition feature as it is also known is part of what Apple calls Faces. Geotagging is apart of Places and can be used to add a tag to the photos you took with your GPS-enabled camera or iPhone. This tag will later on be used when sorting your pictures or when you need to locate a picture you took in one geographical area (the photo you know you took while on vacation in Mexico that seems to have disappeared).

Regarding the Flickr and Facebook integration into iPhoto ’09, here is what Rob Schoeben has to say: “Sharing is what people want to do. We don’t want to replicate what’s out there, we just want to tap into it.” His statement refers to the fact that you do not even have to exit iPhoto ’09 when it comes to publishing photos to your Flickr or Facebook account.

As I’ve mentioned above, the 2009 updated version of iPhoto won the “Best of Show” award. At the Macworld 2009 Expo, 9 other products received the same award. Here they are, just in case you were interested to know: Cisco WebEx Meeting Center; Cultured Code Things for Mac 1.0; Ecamm Network BT-1 Bluetooth Web Cam; FileMaker Pro 10; HP MediaSmart Server; Livescribe Pulse Smartpen; Marketcircle Daylite touch; Sling Media SlingPlayer for the iPhone.
