Excellent! - As a person brand new to Apple products, this was a great way to learn about iPhoto. I was hoping to get in to the store for One on One training, but this has to be so much better! I was able to learn in the comfort of my own home, stop and start as needed, and even have the option of typing notes along the side of each lesson. Anyone that hasn't learned to use iPhoto yet should take the time and watch this course. I can't wait to get started organizing all of my favorite photos. I LOVED that it showed me how to import all of my photos from Facebook too. I have been posting my favorite photos for years to Facebook. I was able to retreive all of them last night and put them into my library on my MacBook :) Also, the person that taught the course was very professional and pleasant to listen to. The volume of his voice was perfect and his pictures were so beautiful to look at that it made watching even more fun.

Review by JungleSports

Still not working - Update (Dec. 17, 2011): In response to Scott S's review: I have hundreds of apps on my Mac. To infer that I don't know "how to access this app" is quite condescending. Let me see… to access it, do I locate it first and perhaps double click… As for my review, I only am reporting on my experience. Granted, yours (and others) may be different. Good for you. As I said, I use many, many apps. Most work great. Some have problems (bugs which are annoying for the most part). And some just don't work to begin with (can't even get it started… just spinning beach ball requiring a force quit). If this app worked great, or worked but was buggy, I would say that too. This app for me though just doesn't even get started. That's all I'm saying. Maybe others might find that info helpful. As I pointed out in the first part of this review, I have other apps of a similar nature that work fine, so this leads me to believe that there is something with this app that needs fixing. Lastly, it is so obvious that you are connected to this dev somehow (although I must add that I'm positive the same could be said for most devs, and I don't have a problem with that. Just another form of marketing a product). While I could refer to many quotes you used to lend credence to my case, your statement for the updated version of "great additions" for bug fixes and one addtional topic seems a bit over the top, as does the phrase "Simply the best." Compared to what? Have you tried similar products? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Updated (Dec 14, 2011) : I was hoping this update would get this 400mb app that is just sitting on my hard drive working… but still no such luck. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First and foremost, this app does not work on my computer, an iMac running the latest version of Lion. Tried numerous times. Only get the spinning beach ball and need to force quit to end the program every time. Without rebooting, I tried "Tutor for Lion" & "SCOtutor for Lion." Both these apps work fine. Then I investigated the reviews for this app and for "Learn - Lion Edition." I did this by clicking on the name of the reviewer to see what other apps they had reviewed, usually a good sign as to whether they are truly objective reviews, or friends and family of the developer. The first 10 reviews for "Learn - Lion Edition" were done by reviewers that only had that one review. For the five reviews for this app, only one reviewer had a single other app review. Bottom line, buyer beware. This app did not work for me and all the five star reviews appear to be bogus.

Review by HPE Gal

Exactly what I needed - I have been using IPhoto for years but never really understood how to organize my pictures. The IPhoto Workshop was too general and there was not enough time to address my questions. This tutorial answered all my questions regarding organization and makes IPhoto so much more enjoyable.

This program will not run on macOS Sierra version 10.12.3 - Purchased program and it downloaded then when I clicked “open” nothing happens. Went back to app store and clicked “open” again nothing. Finally got a error message that this program will not run on macOS Sierra 10.12.3. Give me back my money.
