iPhoto is a digital photograph manipulation software application developed by Apple Inc. and released with every Macintosh personal computer as part of the iLife suite of digital media management applications. First released in 2002, iPhoto can import, organize, edit, print and share digital photos. iPhoto is often compared to Google's Picasa, CyberLink's MediaShow, Adobe's Photoshop Album, Phase One's Media Pro and Microsoft's Windows Live Photo Gallery. iPhoto 9, the latest version of the software, was released as part of the iLife '11 suite on October 20, 2010. On March 7, 2012, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced a new, iOS-native version of iPhoto alongside the third-generation iPad. iPhoto is designed to allow the importing of pictures from digital cameras, scanners, picture CDs and the Internet to a user's iPhoto Library. Almost all digital cameras are recognized without additional software, as are many scanners. iPhoto supports most common image file formats.
