Today at the last MacWorld expo Phil Schiller started off with details on the newest installment of iLive, iLive 09. The first portion that was announced is the addition of more “events” in iPhoto such as Faces. This feature uses face recognition to identify people in photos and then pick that particular person out of photos in your album. You can also create an auto-corkboard of people in which you can then tag people to identify who they are. From there you can confirm the different people that Faces finds for you.
The second addition, “Places” is an advanced geo-tagging service for photos. Places works with standalone cameras that have GPS, together with the iPhone’s camera. This service will automatically dig up GPS data on your photo and with the iPhone will provide latitude and longitude data to identify that you were near a landmark like say the Eifel Tower.
iPhoto has a vast database of thousands of well known locations. There is also integrated Facebook and Flickr support, to export all that location and person data. Also there are new themes for showing your photos with all new matching music. One amazing addition is the travel book system, which will group photos based on the location in which they were taken. iMovie also got a bit of tweaking. Users can now edit
