Many Mac users actually believe the iLife ’11 is long overdue. iLife brings into life more exciting features with just $49 for old Mac users. Another new feature is the improved iMovie. Even though there is not much difference when compared to the old one, it is now more creative with the introduction of the iMovie movie trailer that makes it possible for you to create a theatre-like movie from your clips and the sound editing tool that searches for people that are in your shot. It also boasts of a better audio editing experience to allow easier adjustments to audio levels and new “one-click” sound effects. The Garage Band feature has undergone a facelift, with a cool feature called “groove time” which brings all of the other instruments into time with the star instruments. This just means you can fix your guitars being out of time with the drums in one click. The iPhoto is another distinctive feature of the new update, being the second photo editing software to Aperture. It can do almost everything that the Aperture can.
The new iLife, however, does not have an update for iDVD and iWeb. This may be the reason why the new update is a bit cheaper than the previous ones. The new update installation does not take too long, so you do not have to worry about spending several hours trying to update to the latest version.
