It’s Official: iPhoto For iPad Is Here [iPad 3 Event]



And looks like the rumors were true. Now that the iPad can both take and show 1080p images, Apple’s unveiling iPhoto for iPad. And, as with everything Apple does, it’s supposed to be amazing.

According to Phil Schiller, “Why do it need iPhoto for iPad? If you’re someone who truly loves photos, that’s what it’s for.”

What can you do with iPhoto for iPad? All of the best things you can do on iPhoto for Mac — effects, editing, photo journals. There’s also smart browsing, brushes, multi-touch effects, share on social networks, and more.

You can even beam photos from device to device: for example, from an iPad to an iPhone.

You can also do multi-photo comparisons, which work with images up to 19 megapixels.

In some ways, iPhoto for iPad is more advanced than on the Mac. For example, you can adjust specific parts of an image, just by tapping on them. That makes it a challenger to the likes of PhotoShop Touch. All edits and adjustments are handled non-destructively: you can go back to the original image at any time.

Photo album creation is also pretty neat. New photo albums can be laid out similar to Flipboard, with lots of different sized spaces all fit together like window tiles. You can also add notes, maps, location, even weather. Awesome!

Available today, just $4.99!
