Apple releases iPhoto 8.1.1 update

in macOS edited January 2014
A new update for iPhoto '09 was released Tuesday. It contains fixes for face recognition performance and accuracy and also resolves minor issues with book ordering and iPod touch support.

The update can be installed via Software Update or though a standalone installer. It is recommended for all users of iPhoto '09.

Apple does caution before installing:

If you imported photos of people while using iPhoto 8.1, there's an extra step you should take after installing the 8.1.1 update. Select all those photos, Control-click to open the contextual menu, and then choose Detect Missing Faces. This will redetect the faces in those photos and correct any face recognition issues introduced in iPhoto 8.1. You should not quit iPhoto during the Detect Missing Faces process.
