Following the news that Google has released Picasa for Mac Beta, we are now pleased to announce that Apple has showcased their iLife ‘09 suit which includes iPhoto alongside iMovie, iDVD, iWeb and GarageBand at the Macworld 2009 Expo. The iLife 09 update will be offered for free to new clients (people that just now purchase a Mac); if you already have a Mac you can upgrade (for this you will be charged a small fee).

There are several new features that iPhoto 09 brings to the table, features that could potentially have you forget about Picasa for Mac Beta: face recognition, geo-tagging, themed slideshow, Flickr and Facebook integration, enhanced editing, and travel maps.

The face recognition feature is part of what Apple calls Faces: “iPhoto uses face detection to identify faces of people in your photos and face recognition to match faces that look like the same person. That makes it easy for you to add names to your photos. And it helps you find the people you’re looking for — even in the largest photo libraries.”

The geo-tagging feature (called Places) will add a tag to the photos you took with your GPS-enabled camera or iPhone. The pictures will then be sorted according to those tags, making it easier for you to find the photos you are looking for.

The Flickr and Facebook integration feature refers to the fact that you can publish your favorite photos without ever having to leave iPhoto 09. All you have to do is select the picture you want to put up on Facebook/Flickr and a few clicks latter the process is finished.

The Travel Maps feature allows you to create a custom “professionally printed photo book” enhanced by maps that show off the places you’ve been.

A more detailed look at iPhoto 09, as well as a download/update location, is available here.
