Apple brings iPhoto to iPad Video Transcript
With iPhoto for iOS, we had the opportunity to reinvent it and take advantage of multi touch and take it to a whole new level. I'd like to show it to you. We launch the application and we start up with these beautiful shows that show you all the photos that are on your device. We've got your albums, we can switch over, take a look at your events. You get to see all the photos that you have here. If we tap on one, we can take a look. We bring up the editing interface. It's very customizeable. I can swipe in from the side to bring in a thumbnail view. I can change the sides of this to change the number of columns here. I can even flip this from left to right for left handed or right handed layout. Now, these are photos from a trip that I recently took to Antarctica. So one of the first things you wanna do is find the best photos. We have some great ways for doing that. You can simply tap on this to take a look at them but if you wanna compare photos, I can just press and hold to bring them up side by side. If I just double tap there, it's gonna actually analyze the thumbnails and find all the similar photos and put them up side by side for me so I can compare them. Now, when I wanna go through and find the best ones, like the second one in the first column, he's not looking at the camera, I'll just swipe down. That one disappears. His eyes are kinda closed there so I'll swipe down. Not looking at the camera. So now I'm down to 2. The one at the top's nice but I think I like the expression on the one at the better so I'm gonna swipe down on the one on top. Now I can zoom in by just pinching a part and you can see the amount of the... the kind of detail that I have here. 'Cause now that we've chosen the image... the best one of that group, I'll touch the flag button to mark it. Once I've chosen a number of photos and flagged them, I can tap at the top of the thumbnail column and select to just view the flagged photos. Photos like this penguin staring contest here. Once you've got the photos, we have some great sharing options. I'll tap the share button. We have things like e-mail and Twitter, Flickr and Facebook that you can just send your photos to. Once you've chosen the best photos, you wanna make them look even better and we've got some great tools for that. Jump over to another album here. So here's a nice photo but we can make that look better. Down at the bottom along my toolbar, I'm gonna tap the auto enhance button and we're gonna automatically adjust the contrast and color of the image to make it look better. But you'll notice, the horizon line is not quite level, so I'm gonna down along the... in the lower left here, I've got my tools. I'm gonna tap on the first one which is my crop tool and iPhoto's gonna automatically analyze the photo and find the horizon line. Just draw in a line across and I have a button on the right side and I just touch that button and it straightens the horizon line for me. Now the crop tool also has some great multi touch features to it. So I can just use my fingers to pinch a part and pan around. If I turn my hand, I can actually rotate. I've got a dial at the bottom, it allows me to do the same as well. I can grab a corner and change the cropping. Or if I wanna go to some standard sized, I tap the gear in the lower right corner and it brings up some standard sizes. So say I wanna do a square crop there and I can just reframe and just like that, I can crop the photo. Now another thing is you run into a lot with photos is these things that are too light or too dark and the second tool I have is my exposure tool. So I'm just gonna touch my finger in the lower left and it brings up these controls and I just slide upwards in there and up come the shadows. The same thing works for color. I'll switch to my color tool and now I'm just gonna touch and slide up and it's gonna adjust the saturation. So I'm able to go from this to this with just 2 touches of my finger. Now sometimes, you wanna adjust just a portion of an image. This multi touch controls allow me to do that. I can touch in the sky and just slide to the left and I'm gonna be able to darken or lighten my sky. Another color issue that you run into is white balance. We've got some great tools for white balance but we have a brand new one which is a skin tone white balance. I just touch on the skin tone control, up pops this little loop, and as I drag this around, it's live white balancing on whatever's under the loop and I just drag this onto anything where there's skin tone and I'm able to go from this greenish cast over to a really nicely balanced image. It's really, really easy. Now sometimes you run into situations in an image like this one where a part of the image is nice like the sky but part of it's kinda dark, like the face. We've got some great tools for that. I'm gonna bring up my brushes. I'm gonna go ahead and tap on my lighting brush and now I'm just gonna use my finger to work on the image. I just rub over the image and these brushes are set up to work in a very soft way so you just go back and forth a couple of times on the image and so I'm able to go from this to this. You get a very natural looking change to the image just using my finger with the multi touch on the screen. Now, the next thing I'm gonna show is we have some great effects and we've got a whole bunch of different ones that I can choose from. I'm gonna go ahead and choose my black and white card. Now, to apply a black and white, I just touch on the little film strip down here and it applies in black and white and I can get all kinds of different effects. I just slide my finger to where I like it. With kind of a dark sky I kinda like the way that looks. And then I've got a couple of extra options here, like I can touch on the vignette and then just using my fingers, I can pinch and get a great effect just with a couple of movements of my finger and we have a great new way of doing that. Switch over here to an event, got a set of pictures from a trip to Thailand, and I'm gonna select to share those. I'm gonna choose journal, choose all, we'll give this a name and when I say create journal, it's automatically gonna lay these photos out on the pages, one for each day of the trip and then when I go ahead and show these, we end up with all my photos laid out on this really beautiful looking layout. I just touch the edit button in the upper right corner and I can pick up and move around any of the photos on here. But one of the things that's really great about this is it let's you tell a story along with your photos and we have some great story elements that you can add. We've got a palette of them up here. I have a calendar element that I can drop in which automatically picks up the date from the photos around it. We have a great new sharing option where we can share to a new feature of iCloud where this gets published up to iCloud and then you can share a link with your friends and family that they can then view in any web browser on their... on an iPad or on a laptop, any place in the world. So it's really easy to share this with your friends and family. Now, everything that I've shown here can also be done on the iPhone. This is a universal application. So all of the editing, selection, even the journal creation, can be done on the iPhone as well. And that is iPhoto for iOS. Thanks very much.
