iPhoto 08 is the best version of Apple's photo management and processing application. It is included on every new Mac sold, and can be purchased separately as part of the iLife 08 suite.
My personal view is that Mac photographers should become familiar with this imaging program, even if they're using other tools such as Aperture, Lightroom, and CS3. The combination of iPhoto's great user interface, powerful set of imaging tools, and wide variety of output options make this software an excellent addition to any photography workflow.
In this podcast, I show you some of my favorite features in iPhoto 08, plus share some handy tricks for working more efficiently in the application. I've just spent a week in the recording studio at Lynda.com working on an iPhoto title, so I'm reved up and ready to go.
