iPhoto hits the iPad -- makes photo editing multi-touch


Not content with giving iPad-totting photo fans the joy which is a Retina display, Apple have also rolled out a tablet version of their photo editing software iPhoto.

Bringing multi-touch to your photo library iPhoto lets users browse, edit, and share images from a iPad 2 (or later) and iPhone 4 (or later).

A spokesperson for Apple said: "iPhoto, Apple’s popular photography app, has been completely reimagined for iOS to take full advantage of the Retina display and intuitive Multi-Touch gestures on iPad and iPhone.

"Simple gestures can be used to select and compare photos side by side and flag your best shots. iPhoto gives you full control over color, exposure and contrast, and you simply touch the parts of the image you want to change."

There is also the ability to post photos direct to Facebook, Flickr and Twitter as well as beam photos to your Apple TV with AirPlay and you can also use iCloud to publish photo journals to the web.
