iPhoto '11: The Missing Manual Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With better ways to get your photos online and new options for creating printed projects, iPhoto '11 makes it easier than ever to transfer photos from a digital camera, organize them, and publish, print, or share them in maps — but there's still no printed manual for the program. Fortunately, David Pogue and Lesa Snider team up in this witty, authoritative book that should have been in the box.

iPhoto '11: The Missing Manual lets you marry the stunning quality of digital photography with the power of your imagination, whether you're the next Ansel Adams or just a photo nut.

  • Organizing Your Collection. This book's opening chapters are a guided tour through all the ways iPhoto lets you group your pictures-by events, in albums, or even based on who's in the picture and where it was taken.

  • Editing Basics. Even the greatest photos sometimes need a little touching up. This book covers iPhoto's beefed-up editing suite, including its increasingly Photoshop-like adjustments palette.

  • Finding an audience. iPhoto excels at getting your photos out to the people who really want to see them. Your choices include screen savers, Kodak prints, DVD slideshows (with music), iPhone videos, gift books, calendars, cards, and easy publishing to Flickr, Facebook, and MobileMe Web galleries.

Book News Annotation:

iPhoto is introduced as Apple's answer to the technical hassles involved in digital photo management. For the majority of users who don't need the full features of Apple's Aperture or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, tech columnists Pogue (creator, the Missing Manual series) and Snider (Photoshop CS5: The Missing Manual) introduce iPhoto's new features and approach to basic tasks (e.g., creating albums, uploading to Facebook, making slideshows). The guide includes answers to frequently asked questions, screen shots, troubleshooting information, further resources, and access to an online version of the book.
