    My big question before I buy iPhoto for the iPad is what happens when you sync with iTunes. Does iPhoto for OsX receive the edits to the photo’s you made in iOs iPhoto. What about album creation and tags are they synced also?

      It does not appear that iPhoto for Mac gets the edits when you sync. You would need to use the Share button in iPhoto for iOS, then share to your Camera Roll. Then that new photo can be imported into iPhoto for Mac.
      You don’t create albums in iPhoto. You edit photos. You can create Albums in the “Photos” app — and that works the same as it did before. No change.

        Thanks for the feed back; I think it would be nice if there was a better integration between the two product offerings, but the solution you propose is a viable work around, I just wish it was more automatic.

    What about Aperture 3 users? Can pictures from Aperture be imported into iOS iPhoto? How about vise versa? iOS iPhoto can publish to a web pageā€”is that similar to the Gallery in MobleMe?

      Pictures from Aperture can go to your iOS device just as pictures from iPhoto (Mac) can. So the functionality should be the same whether you use iPhoto on your Mac or Aperture.
      For publishing to the web, see the very next video (episode 683)

    If I buy the iPad app, do I have to buy the iPhone app as well? I have mostly free apps so it has not mattered, but when there are different versions for iPad and iPhone, I am not sure what to do.

      No. Like with any app that is “for iPhone and iPad” you buy it once and then can install it on any iOS devices that use your Apple ID. In this case there is a single iPhoto app that works on both iPad and iPhone.

    Can I arrange photos within albums or events on the ipad2 using photos or the iPhoto app.
    Can you also do this journals. I haven’t been able to yet.

      8 years ago

      You can arrange your photos into albums in the Photos app. As for Journals, see the very next episode (683).

        Thanks, i understand the journals but on the iphone or iPad i am not able to arrange the pictures that are -already- in albums. is this possible?

        on the iMac i can do this but not on the iPad. perhaps i am missing something

          Those albums are created in iPhoto on the Mac. You can’t alter them on the iPad because they “belong” to your iPhoto library collection on your Mac. You can imagine the chaos that could easily be created if you could alter them in both places — you’d change then on your iPad and then they would need to sync to your Mac. But if you change them in both places, which one is right?
          So just arrange all of your albums on your Mac. You can use the Photos app (not iPhoto) to create new albums, just not alter the Mac ones.
