Software Overview

Apple iPhoto is a digital photo editor bundled with Mac OS X. It organizes, edits, and shares digital photographs. Apple discontinued iPhoto in 2015 and replaced it with Apple Photos.

iPhoto has editing capabilities that allow you to make quick and easy touch-ups to your images. You can adjust exposure, remove red eyes, touch up blemishes, and enhance your image. You can also add effects and filters, such as black-and-white, vignettes, blurred edges, and sepia tones.

Another valuable part of iPhoto is its image management and sharing. It automatically groups your photos by event but allows you to customize their organization. If you add a name to a photo, iPhoto will automatically detect the person in your other pictures and give you suggestions.


If you were a Mac user in the 2000s and early 2010s, you likely found iPhoto a convenient and helpful program for managing your photos. Additionally, if you are a Mac user now, you will likely find Apple Photos, which replaced iPhoto in 2015, to be an even more helpful photo organizer and editor.
