    During today’s new iPad launch, Apple also announced and demoed iPhoto for iPad and iPhone, plus major updates for iMovie and GarageBand, thus completing its iLife suite of apps for iOS. iPhoto includes breakthrough Multi-Touch features, which mean that you can use simple gestures to sort through hundreds of photos, as well as enhancing and retouching your images using fingertip brushes. The app is designed to take full advantage of the new iPad’s Retina display as well as that of the iPhone, and will give the user full control over colour, exposure and contrast, whereby you simply touch the parts of the image that you want to change. As well as posting photos to Facebook, Flickr and Twitter, you will also be able to beam photos between your iPhone and iPad, and stream photos and slideshows to your Apple TV with AirPlay, and use iCloud to publish photo journals on the web and share with your friends and family.

    [FONT=&amp]iPhoto is available to download now from the App Store for $4.99 (although it’s not actually there yet, hence no link, but it should be any minute now!).[/FONT]

    Tried it out and it displays EXIF data of images. An unexpected bonus.

    I think it's going to be a must have app. Anyway, I must.

    I'm following right behind you twerppoet! You and gabriel1 told me about Skitch, which has been very helpful here. You both are my "app-shop" advisors!

    Wellll, ok. Thought I'm buying purely on the 'probable' utility of it. If I were a cautious man I'd wait untill at least one in depth review was out; but's iPadmas (stollen from Kelly of TUAW), and I need some presents to open. ;)

    Looks good to me too. Still haven't got Skitch, but I'm getting it as soon as I get home. I need to do some serious clearing out of my 16GB, and I'll need access to my computer to do it.

    Well that is interesting. When I purchased iPhoto from the App Store it did not do it's usual go-back-to-homescreen thing. Might have been a glitch, since I had to agree to new terms; or maybe not. It would certainly make shopping for multiple apps more pleasant in the future.

    That's good news Twerppoet. I always found it annoying when it went to the home screen. So you have done the update already?

    I agree that it is good news about not going back to the home screen after a purchase. I have changed my mind a number of times when purchasing multiple apps because of getting kicked out of the store. It would be nice to cue up a few apps, because sometimes I forget what I'm shopping for.
    For me, it would be nice to change the order of the update downloads. Most of the time I pick and choose which ones to update during waking hours. Each one takes me back to the screen where the app's icon lives. Some updates have to wait until I get to a high speed connection.

    Hold in mind it was a one time thing. I have no idea if it is a new feature. There certainly hasn't been any news about it (that I've seen). It happened, It may never happen again.

    Does anyone know if you will be able to create photobooks, or print the journals? I am looking for the ability to create the printed photobooks.

    No options to create photo books, or to print the Journals. Other than publishing a journal to iCloud the only other option is to export to iTunes. This results in a folder with files I assume can be used to manually create a journal on a non iCloud server.

    I've only given it a quick play but some of the changes are not so intuitive which is unusual for an Apple product but as a whole I would say this is a great app for managing and editing images. I'll give it another play when I get some time to figure out the nuances of it.

    Anybody figure out the method of which "Export to iTunes" works when you create a Journal?
    I checked my library and I don't see any new files. I'm doing everything wirelessly if that makes a difference. I assumed you would do a sync and while synced use the export button..

    Haven't tried that yet but I'm guessing using that method means the next time you connect to iTunes, you can scroll down to app sharing on the apps table and save the journal from within the app to your computer.

    Exactly what I thought. I checked out my apps and there isn't a listing for iPhoto. I wonder if its a bug or if there is a very specific method to retrieve your files.

    I tried it a few ways so far.

    1) Export prior to connecting to iTunes wirelessly
    2) Export while connected to iTunes wirelessly
    3) Export prior to connecting to iTunes wired
    4) Export while connected to iTunes wired

    I figured it would work like iBook Author does. You click the publish and it sends directly to your iPad, but obviously this is reverse iPad to computer.
