Hi Guys,

i know this isn't really an iPhone thread, so mods, i apologise. I have been looking at Iphoto 09 and like the idea of face / geotagging etc.

Am i able to purchase / get iphoto 09 stand alone?

Secondly, i have never used Picasa for mac, so id basically like some "real" reviews on the benefits of using either?

All i use a photo software package for is to store ALL photos in albums based on events, upload to facebook, maybe a little editing. I would love the Faces feature, id use that a lot, but my camera doesn't have the geotagging ability, so only my iPhone pics would be geotagged (not many so not make or break for me)

So i apologise for being off subject, but id just like some ideas?

Thanks again, you always help me!

I'm not too familiar with Picasa yet because I just downloaded it. I like it so far, the face recognition has alright so far but I only have a handfull of photos here at work.

I do have to ask you though...why don't you download the free program and try it for yourself to see if you like it, before committing to a program that costs money?
