Apple unveiled a new version of iPhoto today alongside the new iPad.

The company is bringing the photo software, already found on MacBooks, to the iPad. Apple executives showed off the editing capabilities of the new iPhoto app and said it would work with photos up to 19 megapixels.

While most fixate on the hardware, Apple has taken equal care to ensure that its software and breadth of available apps complements the device. Many of the other tablets have languished due to the lack of app support.

The iPhoto app is available today and will cost $4.99.

Apple also announced updates to GarageBand and iMovie, also available today. Users can create movie trailers using the app. The iMovie app includes music that was specifically composed for Apple.

GarageBand, meanwhile, will get "smart strings," a note editor, and work with iCloud.

The apps will stay $9.99.
