iLife '09

Apple’s iLife ’09 will be available starting today, offering major upgrades to iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand, and new ways to organize and manage photos, create movies and learn to play music.

Apple said iPhoto ’09 builds on the ability to automatically organise photos into Events by adding Faces and Places as innovative new ways to easily organise and manage your photos using face detection, face recognition and GPS geo-tagging technologies.

iMovie ’09 expands on the fast movie creation introduced in iMovie ’08 by adding the depth users want through new features such as the Precision Editor, video stabilization, advanced drag and drop, and animated travel maps.

GarageBand ’09, Apple says, introduces a whole new way to help you learn to play piano and guitar with 18 basic lessons and optional lessons from top artists such as Sara Bareilles, John Fogerty, Norah Jones and Sting.

iLife ’09 is available to Mac users as an upgrade for $79.
