• Improves reliability when upgrading a library from an earlier version of iPhoto
• iPhoto now correctly preserves the sort order of Events after upgrading a library
• Event titles displayed in headers can now be edited in Photos view
• Addresses a problem that could cause duplicate photos to be added to a MobileMe album
• Scrolling overlay now correctly displays ratings when photos are sorted by rating
• Photos are now sorted correctly when a rating is changed and photos are sorted by rating

  1. Can’t wait to install this. Does classic mean that I’ll have the option of e-mailing photos as useful seperately dragable photos so they can be used as we see fit, instead of the group being stuck together? I hated that.

  2. Yes, you can. What they did now is, in addition to those fancy templates, added the ‘Classic’ template, which pretty much does exactly what they old one did: you get an empty body of an e-mail message, with your images attached (embedded) individually at the end, in a size of your choice (Optimized, large, medium, small, original). THe only difference between the old iPhoto 09 and the new (11) is that it doesn’t launch your ‘Mail’ application, but instead creates the new message from within iPhoto.

    Other templates still do the old thing: create a single big image with a collage of your selected pictures, with the attached ZIP file, containing originals in the size of your choice. My wife gave up e-mailing pictures because the images in the collage were just way too small, and nobody she knows could figure out what to do with those ZIP files (luddites, I know, but that’s the point). She can start e-mailing again now.
