I am no musician so GarageBand is not enough incentive for me to purchase iLife 04, however a faster and improved iPhoto would be. Currently with only 220 pictures in my library iPhoto is slow on my iBook/900/384 So I wouldn't mind improved performance in this respect. But does any one have a review of the new iPhoto?

Cheers!

I installed iLife last evening but only used iPhoto for about 20 minutes or so, just to give it a brief workout.

I've got about 1000 digital pics; iPhoto handled my library with aplomb. It definitely feels much faster. But from my brief experience with the new iPhoto last evening, I'd say the review that Heart referred us to is pretty well bang on. I'll do more serious / in-depth testing this week & more on the weekend.

I'm no musician either (at least not nowadays) but GarageBand is definitely fun.

I have found that with heavy editing that iPhot crashes continuously, leaving my images with a black border were they were previously cropped.

It is also dog slow with 3 gigs of pics.

I hope that this is way better, I should have mine by Friday.

Just Loaded and Used.
Blazingly fast by comparison. I have about 1.5 gig/1000 photo's.
