Major Upgrade Features New Versions of iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD & GarageBand
MACWORLD EXPO, SAN FRANCISCO—January 11, 2005 — Apple® today announced iLife® ‘05, the must-have upgrade to Apple’s award-winning suite of digital lifestyle applications, featuring major new versions of iPhoto™, iMovie®, iDVD® and GarageBand™ and including the latest version of iTunes®. iLife ‘05 continues to lead the industry with the most innovative and comprehensive suite of software for organizing, editing and sharing digital photos; creating stunning digital movies and DVDs; and purchasing, managing and creating digital music.
“iLife ‘05 is far beyond anything available on a PC, and is a must-have upgrade for every Mac user,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “If you have a digital camera, digital camcorder or create music, iLife ‘05 is built for you.”
iPhoto 5 adds advanced editing tools so you can perfect your photos without ever leaving iPhoto, including controls to set exposure, black and white points, saturation, tint, temperature and sharpness, while also showing users a histogram and providing the most intuitive way ever to straighten photos. iPhoto 5 adds support for uncompressed RAW photos throughout the entire application so that high-end users can exploit all the image data their cameras can capture. iPhoto 5 includes a new advanced slideshow builder which allows users to easily apply effects, transitions and durations to each individual slide. iPhoto 5 features an entirely new way to create affordable hardcover and softcover photo books, now starting as low as $3.99. iPhoto 5 lets users choose from stunning new book layouts, all featuring double-sided printing, and easily place and rearrange their photos until perfect, then order their book online right from within iPhoto 5. With iPhoto 5, Apple is also cutting the price of individual 4x6 prints in half, from 39 cents to just 19 cents each.
With iMovie, Apple revolutionized movie-making by allowing anyone to import and edit digital video on their Mac®. Now iMovie HD leads the revolution again by allowing users to capture and edit stunning High Definition Video (HDV) from the new generation of HDV camcorders. iMovie HD also includes Magic iMovie, the easiest way ever to make a movie. With just a few clicks, Magic iMovie automatically imports your video into separate clips, adds titles, transitions and music, all in one step. iMovie HD imports video from HDV and standard DV camcorders, and from video cameras that generate MPEG-4 video.
iDVD 5 includes 15 amazing new themes featuring moving drop zones that can display video clips or photos in motion across DVD menus, just like the latest Hollywood DVDs. iDVD 5 also features OneStep DVD, which lets users create DVDs by simply plugging in a DV camcorder and clicking a button. iDVD 5 now supports all single-sided DVD formats including -R, +R, -RW and +RW with a compatible Apple SuperDrive™.
GarageBand put a complete recording studio on a Mac. GarageBand 2 adds 8-track recording, so users can record an entire band at once, plus pitch and timing correction to quickly fix those tracks that don’t sound perfect. GarageBand 2 now displays and edits musical notation in real time for people who know how to read and write music or want to learn. With Apple’s growing family of GarageBand Jam Packs, including the latest, Jam Pack 4: Symphony Orchestra, GarageBand users can create professional sounding music in their favorite genre.
iLife ‘05 also includes iTunes 4.7.1, the latest version of the world’s best digital music jukebox software with the iTunes Music Store inside. iTunes provides seamless integration with Apple's complete family of popular iPods, including the new iPod shuffle. With Apple’s legendary ease of use, pioneering features such as iMix playlist sharing, seamless integration with iPod and groundbreaking personal use rights, the iTunes Music Store is the best way for Mac and PC users to legally discover, purchase and download music online.
