I'm not sure how to review this: some people could potentially be buying this to upgrade a very old version of iLife. If I review this as a standalone piece of software, it's fantastic and quite a value. For less than $50 you get a world class digital music studio, one of the best photo organizing programs, and a remarkably capable video editing package. (Oh, and passable web editing and DVD authoring programs, but nobody cares much about those, least of all Apple.) Easily five stars.

However, if I judge this as an upgrade from iLife '09, it's extremely weak. Here's what you get of any substance: the ability to better edit audio in iMovie, slightly better full screen modes in iPhoto, really impressive time warping facilities in Garage Band to fix timing, and some very nice guitar and piano lessons which actually show you where you making mistakes. All great features, to be sure. But are these worth $50 if you have '09? Probably not.

The frustrating thing is that the most major feature in this upgrade is just plain silly: they added the ability to make cutesy little fake "trailers" in iMovie. This is apparently their big innovation. You can now replace your boring home movies with one of eight or so two minute jokes that I guarantee you will get old very quickly. Very quickly. They also added a fake news program theme, and a fake sports theme. All very gaudy and over-the-top, even for iMovie standards. And not at all useful beyond just playing with them once.

It's pretty clear that Apple's focus has shifted away from Mac OS X and iLife and on to the greener pastures of iOS: the iPad and iPhone. In fact, from now on we'll likely see features come first to their consumer devices, and then later to their desktop computers.

I have used the iLife Applications ever since I returned to Macs in 2003. I love the iLife applications, but is the iLife 11 update worth this purchase price?

While my purchase of a new Mac often coincides with a release of a new version of iLife, I now always have one or two older machines that need to be upgraded. It is not always fun to feel the need to purchase the upgrade to the latest version of iLife, but in the Mac universe, you often find you need to stay on top of releases to keep all your Apple products functioning, syncing, together, effectively. They all work together.

The primary application I use in iLIfe is iPhoto. I have tried the professional applications such as Aperture and Light room, I use them occasionally, but most of the time I prefer to keep my primary photo library in iPhoto. It's clean, simple, and easy to use.

This newest iPhoto has several new features. It's one of the most visually different looking releases for some time. Some have complained of their photo library not updating correctly, when installing this new release. I have thorough backups of my iPhoto library, so I took the plunge. Be sure you have a backup! Some have reported losing pictures.

However, I must say, I did not lose a single picture or movie during the update process. Hopefully the problems are rare.

Sadly, the iLife '11 applications have not been rewritten in 64-bit, so there is not the speed increase some other Apple products saw, when they switched.

The most significant change is iPhoto's encouragement to enter "full screen," mode. You can enter full screen mode to do anything now. Browse photos, edit, view, full screen mode can be used for anything. It does look gorgeous.

Normally, I love the upgrades to ilife. This version (if you can really call it an upgrade) doesn't have any major upgrades over the '09 version. In fact, iPhoto is actually WORSE. I don't like the new UI, and it managed to destroy an entire library of approximately 400 photos during the "upgrade" process. I did manage to recover most of them from another computer and some backup discs, but all the metadata that went with them is gone.

I wanted to give ilife '11 a fair shot...so I re-installed it, updated it through the on-line software update and re-imported the photos that I was able to recover from the first time around. This time I got to play around with '11 and get a look at what some of the changes were. In sort, after re-launching the program a few time over the course of a few days, it crashed and burned again, corrupting my photo library along with it.

I went back to '09 and haven't had any more troubles (aside from having to re-import, and re add faces, and locations to all my photos...again)

I am sticking with '09 for a while longer, it's stable, and it works.

I am a bit of a Mac fan boy and when Steve tells me to upgrade I upgrade. So I bought iLife 11 and installed it but the first time I opened iPhoto it told me to upgrade the photo database. No problem with this but after 15 minutes it tells me that the database is corrupted and can not be used. I have been using it every single day with the previous version of iPhoto so I am confused why iPhoto 11 would have an issue with it. Lucky Steve also told me to buy a timecapsule so I have a backup but the internet is filled with thousands of people who lost all their photo's after upgrading. I have spend nearly a day trying to get this to work but have not been able to. I will try to get the previous version of iPhoto back installed and I am hoping that my timemachine is actually working. Some people managed to get passed the upgrade process to find that some of their pictures are missing.

Stay away from this version until apple has fixed all these bugs.
