The thing we love the most about Apple is that it has an unrivalled ability to make things simple.
The Facebook integration in iPhoto is the perfect example. We’ve all loaded photos manually onto the social network site and, in the past, it has required creating a folder, dropping images into it and then uploading and tagging. It was a bit of a pain. In iPhoto 11 this has all changed. Not only can you quickly share an entire album but you can view comments, likes and tags as well as all of the other cool information that iPhoto provides. It’s a great system that puts the power of social networking in the hands of your favourite photo tool. Here’s a quick guide.
