Great update.

I upgraded iPhotos for iOS (v 1.0 > 1.1) after upgrading the iPad to iOS 6.0. It looks like there are many new features which I'm eager to learn, but did have one serious PROBLEM; now my journals won't upload to iCloud. I've worked on it myself (tried multiple devices and new journals, etc.) and contacted Apple regarding the problem. No word yet on what's up, but I'd advise not upgrading to v 1.1 until this has been resolved.

but is there a "select all" button. Kinda annoying when you have 200+ photos you want to remove and there isnt one.

No, still not fixed.
You still have to do it from the app Photos.

"iPhoto for iOS v1.1 requires iOS6"

Ouch! Didn't want to update my iPad 3 until a jailbreak is available, which I consider essential for, among other hacks, Quasar and f-lux.

Epic. Looking forward to working with my D800e NEFs. :-)

Keep looking forward to it. It'll only work with your D800e JPGs.

I still don't see the ability to view, sort, and rate the photos on my iMac's iPhoto library, preferably via my appletv so everyone can join in...

Maybe I missed it.

What's good on iOS and Mac is you buy the app once and enjoy on 5 different computers/devices with years of free major updates (PS: OS excluded). So no worries to be an early bird with a trustworthy company.
I just hope Microsoft/Adobe can make this happen to their loyal users. I hate to buy different license for different platform and pay a premium when newer version comes out.

Actually, Microsoft and Adobe both have options for several installations and free updates per license...but only via their (expensive) subscription plans.

By chadley_chad (Sep 20, 2012)

Free updates via paid subscription plans ... Hmmm!

By VirtualMirage (Sep 20, 2012)

Just like Apple, Microsoft and Adobe do the same thing. So I don't see what is so different here. They both release updates, sometime major updates, to a current version product at no charge. Only when a whole new version releases do you need to upgrade.

Apple does the same thing, incremental updates (no matter how major they are) are usually free. But once they release a major version change, like Aperture 2 to Aperture 3 or iLife '09 to '11 (which iMovie and iPhoto are packaged in).

Now with Apps on the iPhone and iPad it is still too early to tell since Apple hasn't released a major version change yet.

So again, I don't see what is different here.

Having said that, I have been holding out on iPhoto since the initial release couldn't support my 24MP A77 pictures. But now that it does, I'll will probably purchase it and give it a try.
