Oh well, Macs used to be so good, iLife was one of those things people wanted to buy Macs for, but iWeb is dead, not even for blogging, it's a nightmare. iMovie is cool, but when you export your masterpiece you find out the output quality is soooo bad it makes it useless, yes and it's not just me, there's users all over the web talking about the same thing, iMovie creates awful banding on black areas of video footage. iDVD is nothing without a good iMovie. iPhoto, should be named iSlow, it's good to browser and organize, but if you want to make some easy photo enhancements be prepared to wait and wait, Garage band seems to be the best thing of all. Apple is rotten!

Don't bother upgrading yet! I appreciate some of the new features in iMovie and Garageband, but the new iPhoto has so many problems I want to revert back to iLife '09. There is no real full-screen mode and I miss having the editing tools on palettes. Have also had slow-downs and freezes - unbelievable, this should still be Beta software. Wait until the next major fix at least.

hmmmm.... i'm not satisfied enough to see what 2011 has to offer? this is mostly the same ilife i bought last year the only things that change is the imovie trailer feature, the iphoto quality feature which moved up to like 2% higher, and garageband, well at least garageband some new stuff that last year didn't have, but i'm not a musician. maybe this year might be helpful for the musician.

I don't like to give less than 3 stars but the current iLife '11 is a 0 star product.

There may be many cool features hiding in all those apps but I tried everything for about a week now and iMove is just crashing or brings the whole system to a fatal hold. Can't access my Aperture library - copied everything into a fresh iPhoto 11 library (this took about 9h!)
Now the new iPhoto library is displayed in iMovie but if i try to open it just a spinning wheel ending with a crash after a few minutes.

iLife '11 is simply unusable for me so I cant test any of those new features as in first place I can't access any of my movies without crashing. And while playing around with another movie directly imported iMovie just freezed the whole system while crashing. I just tried to change the duration of that clip.

I'm not sure if anyone at Apple ever tested any of these apps?

I just installed iPhoto 11 in two computers. I am very disappointed because of the problems I've been having in both.
1) The application runs slowly when compared to previous versions.
2) When I double click on a photo to make it bigger, in some cases the photo does not become amplified and I see an image with a huge black frame.
3) Some of my photos have become "unviewable" because when I click on them, the screen goes black and a big warning triangle with an exclamation sign in its center appears.
I think that I may go back to the previous version, that worked flawlessly. Or, maybe I should wait for the upgrade that may be coming out with the solution to this problems.

Very nice upgrade. When you look a little further you 'll see a lot of nice, new and handy features in iPhoto, iMovie and Garageband. Maybe an update in the near future for the "rough edges" will finish it. This suite is also cheaper than ever ! Recommended for every user !

I had the same corrupt library issue when trying to activate iPhoto (it was the corrupt library issue with iPhoto and Aperture which drove me away from those products). Luckily, as I don't use iPhoto, I could afford to delete my iPhoto library before installation. The first reaction upon using the new version was "is that it?". It's for anyone who enjoys Facebook really. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but if that's not you, then it ain't worth upgrading. iMovie 06 was probably the best version in terms of its flexibility. This new version doesn't change that. There's no real change in iDVD, iWeb or Garageband either. This just seems to be a reflection of how good this software was in its early years, when there was no other software like it and the difficulty Apple may have in constantly having to make each version so much better than the last. In conclusion, not worth upgrading; this is only super software if you've never used a Mac before.

Wow, Apple STILL does not eat their own dogfood -- iLife 11 is STILL not 64-bit.

Absolute useless upgrade. Just skip it. The only "new feature" I noticed in iPhoto 11 is the annoying rainbow beach ball on launch.

I am highly disappointed with current release of iLife mostly because of untouched iWeb, but also with changes to iPhoto.

For a start - iLife '11 apps are still 32-bit only. This should be a real shame for Apple for releasing such memory hungry applications with ancient technology...

Also, iPhoto'11 looks "new", but in fact all what changed are new slideshow themes and new ways to socialise your ugly face photos on Facebook or Flickr. iPhoto'11 is just rebuild interface of previous version with "better" full screen mode, which in fact gives you SMALLER preview of photo you are working on than it was before! With iPhoto'09 all tools were located on sliding in/out toolbars. Now it is changed to non resizable bar to the right of your screen. There is no way to turn off distracting buttons and sliders. Amazing, how nice idea can be done so wrong.

Secondly - there is single change to photo editing tools. Not single new/enhanced effect! All editing is untouched comparing to previous version (only with changed UI)

In my opinion paying $49 for couple of new slideshow themes and new books formats (which I can't order as Apple do not sell to my country at all) is just pointless. If you are not ordering books, or are not slideshow heavy maker - just stick to iPhoto'09 and spend that money on anything else.

Just installed iLife '11. I'd love to tell you what I think, except it doesn't work. iPhoto needs to upgrade the database - gets halfway through - crash. 6 times. After restarts, permissions rebuilds, everything else I could think of... no go.
