Organize everything with a click
The way that iPhoto is designed will allow you to quickly find your photos at any moment. It includes different ways to organize, but what makes the difference are its intelligent albums. Just by applying some rule, they will group the photos instead of you. These rules, or criteria are Events, Faces, Places, Albums and Projects.
Its simple but powerful editing tools will turn a simple photo into a spectacular one
In Events, the photos will be organized by the tag you add them, for example "Weekend Party", "Harry's Birthday 2015", or whatever. Places and Albums work in a similar way, you just have to include metadata in the photo (locations, tags, etc) and they will organize automatically. Faces is a another outstanding feature; at first, you will have to tag the faces of the people in your images, but just the first time. Once you have done this, the program will recognize the faces and will classify the photos according to the people in them. Finally, the Projects feature groups the photos depending on which project you have used them for.
In regards to Projects, you can turn your photos into the perfect present for your family and friends. With iPhoto you can design a book of photos, cards, calendars, and send them to be printed from your Mac. They will deliver your printed creations to your home or wherever you want. Creating books is quite easy, just select a theme and choose your favorite pictures, and iPhoto will organize those photo by date. Then, you can add captions, maps, etc. The same occurs with cards and calendars; just add the images and iPhoto will do the rest.
