    If you are talking about finding iPhoto in the app store then you need to learn to us the app store - it is simple ot find by seraching or looking under Top Charts ( #6 in my list)  - or under Photoragraphy in the catagories section = or several other ways

    Sorry - this is the iPhoto for Mac forum


    What exactly are you trying to do? With what OS? and what version of iPhoto?


    In iPhoto '11 you can title a photo and you can add a description





    want to ask a complete question?


    about the subject of this forum - iPhoto for the Mac?

    but the 'description' doesn't travel with the photo if I send it as an email attachment.


    Export the photo and in the export dialogue you can write this material to the Exif and IPTC metadata of the shot.

    Email that.


    This User Tip



    has details of the options in the Export dialogue.


    There is an app for iOS called 'Over' which puts text onto a photo. This works on iPhones and iPads only. This is not the same as writing to the metadata and in effect "defaces" the photo. If that's what you want to do use one of the following:

    Preview - already on your machine

    BorderFX - a free plug-in. (


    or an external editor.


    In order of price here are some suggestions:

    Seashore (free)

    The Gimp (free)

    Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)

    Acorn ($50 approx)

    Pixelmator ($50 approx)

    Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)


    There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate.


    You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.
