Chapter 1: Getting Familiar with iPhoto '11 > iPhoto '11 System Requirements

iPhoto '11 System Requirements

The first thing you need in order to use iPhoto '11 is an Apple computer. iPhoto is Mac-only and has never had (and likely never will have) a Windows-compatible sister. Once you have the Mac, you'll want to make sure you already have iPhoto '11 on it; if you don't, you'll want to get it (see the earlier “Getting iPhoto '11” section).

For those of you who don't have a Mac that shipped with iPhoto '11 and are upgrading to iLife or iPhoto '11, you'll want to make sure you have a Mac computer with the following:

  • An Intel dual-core processor
  • Mac OS X 10.6.3 or newer (known as “Snow Leopard”)
  • At least 1GB of RAM
  • At least 5GB of free hard-drive space

Recommended Extras

Considering the scope of what iPhoto '11 allows you to do, it will also be helpful if you have the following extra items. These are not necessary to use iPhoto, but you'll find having them will allow you to really take advantage of all iPhoto '11 has to offer. You'll learn throughout the book about how having these extras will improve your iPhoto experience.
