iPhoto ’09 gets update, fixes bugs


Today, Apple released an update to its digital photography software, iPhoto ’09.

The iPhoto 8.1.1. update fixes the 8.1 update’s problem regarding accuracy and face-recognition performance. The update also deals with previous problems on book order panel info displayed incorrectly and incorrect icon display for iPod touch.

Now, users will have no problems regarding faces matched incorrectly or slow performance.

The update is available via OS X’s Software Update, or it can be downloaded by visiting Apple’s support website.

The Cupertino-based company also gives some advice to uses who imported pictures using iPhoto 8.1:

Important: If you imported photos of people while using iPhoto 8.1, there’s an extra step you should take after installing the 8.1.1 update. Select all those photos, Control-click to open the contextual menu, and then choose Detect Missing Faces. This will redetect the faces in those photos and correct any face recognition issues introduced in iPhoto 8.1. You should not quit iPhoto during the Detect Missing Faces process.
