Apple iMovie/iPhoto Updates

Apple released two, huge updates today for it's iLife series of programs, iMovie, for video editing and iPhoto, for managing your digital photos. Both updates are available by running Software Update. This is available in your System Preferences under Mac OS X.

While it is great to see regular updates of these programs, the files are exceedingly large and almost require a broadband connection to the Internet, if you expect to download them in a reasonable amount of time.

(For more on the topic of the need for broadband Internet connection, see my column, Moving to Broadband)

iMovie 3.0.1 weighs in at a hefty 84.5 megabytes (MB) and iPhoto at 33.3 MB.

A detailed report of the new features and fixes these versions provide is available here.
