iPhoto 11 gets email improvements

Apple has released a new update for iPhoto 11 that adds a number of new features including the ability to email photos from an external email application like Outlook.

The new 65MB update, which should automatically appear in the “software update” queue also adds "Classic" and "Journal" themes to email as well as the photos to be attached to an email Small, Medium or Large,  rather than just one standard size.

Other features, say Apple, include improved reliability when upgrading a library from an earlier version of iPhoto, correctly preserving the sort order of Events after upgrading a library, and the ability to edit event titles in headers.

Other fixes include Apple addressing a problem that could cause duplicate photos to be added to a MobileMe album, the scrolling overlay now correctly displays ratings when photos are sorted by rating, and photos are now sorted correctly when a rating is changed and photos are sorted by rating.

The update is recommended for all users of iPhoto '11.
