      Excellent

      I bought iLife for iWeb, so that I could create a website for my business. It makes site building incredibly easy, to a simple drag n' drop. I've got audio and video links going, photos, html widgets (but without the need to know about html).

      Also, the excellent Garage Band allows the creation of music in what is basically not dissimilar to a very stripped down version of Logic Express (GarageBand files are compatible with Logic).

      iMovie is useful for editing video footage from cameras and camcorders - and makes it easy to do. Beware though, editing is slow on lower performance macs.

      In iPhoto 11 they've added the face recognition (actually it may have already appeared in iPhoto '09 but I upgraded from iPhoto 08!).

      Finally, iDVD. I've never found a use for this but as the overall package was cheap anyway so I don't mind.

      This is worth the money if you want an enhanced multimedia experience with your mac.

    Upgrade to iLife '11 and you'll do more with photos, movies and music than you ever thought possible. In iPhoto, you can browse, edit and share your photos with full-screen views. Turn your home videos into epic movie trailers in iMovie. And GarageBand gives you everything you need to make a great-sounding song - including tools for keeping your song in perfect rhythm as well as guitar and piano lessons.

    Bigger is better, especially when it comes to your photos. In iPhoto '11, you can browse, edit and share your photos full screen. With a quick click, desktop applications, the menu bar and other distractions disappear, bringing your images front and center. Full-screen views take advantage of every inch of your display. So your Faces corkboard and Places map stretch from edge to edge, and you see more of your events, albums and projects. Go from picture to picture while basking in full-screen greatness using the new filmstrip. More screen real estate means a bigger workspace for perfecting each shot or creating the most memorable iPhoto projects ever.

    Go from indie filmmaker to master sound editor with audio editing tools in iMovie. Sound effects, voiceover and music - you control them all. iMovie shows you detailed audio waveforms for all your clips. They're color-coded, so you can see where the audio is overpowering. To adjust the audio levels of a clip or part of a clip, just drag the volume slider. To shorten or extend fades, drag the fade edges. As you make changes, waveforms update immediately so you always see what you hear. And the single-row view shows you your entire movie project in one horizontal row, so it's easier to preview and edit your soundtrack.

    GarageBand brings you seven guitar amps for a total of 12. They're modeled on the most revered gear in the world - from clean sounds to heavy distortion and everything in between. You can also reproduce the sound of classic foot pedals with five stompbox effects, making 15 to choose from. Mix amps with stompboxes and find thousands of ways to rock. And with the Apogee GiO, you can control GarageBand hands-free, so you don't ever have to stop playing. The GiO lets you control stompbox effects, recording and transport controls with your feet. Plug an electric guitar into your Mac, crank it up and let it rip.

    Create a site that's fun to visit by adding a few interactive widgets. iWeb makes it drag-and-drop easy to add RSS feeds, iSight photos and videos, a countdown timer, YouTube videos, HTML snippets, and other dynamic features. The iWeb Widget Browser puts every widget within reach. All you do is drop the widget you want anywhere on your page.

    Take magic iDVD, for example. Open iDVD and choose Magic iDVD. Then pick a theme and select the movies and photos you want to feature from the iLife media browser. Magic iDVD automatically creates a complete project - including main menu, buttons, scene selection menus and slideshow menus - from start to finish. All you do is burn your DVD.
