Hey, What’s This?
This ebook began as a print book in Peachpit Press’s Visual QuickStart Guide series. We’ve converted it to a true ebook by increasing the page (and thus font) size; adding bookmarks; and linking the table of contents, index, and URLs. We encourage you to view the free 55-page sample, since it is different from the Take Control design.
If you want a complete manual for iPhoto ’09, look no further than Take Control publisher Adam Engst’s iPhoto ’09: Visual QuickStart Guide. Relying on concise, step-by-step instructions supported by numerous full-color screenshots and photos, this title first explains how best to import, organize, and edit your photos. Adam then shows you how to master iPhoto’s new Faces and Places features; publish photos to Facebook, Flickr, and MobileMe; and create themed slideshows and prints, along with stunning photo books, greeting cards, and calendars. Also covered are how to burn CDs for Mac and Windows users, send photos via email, share an iPhoto library with another person, and, well, everything else that iPhoto can do.
A troubleshooting chapter helps readers solve common problems, and the appendixes cover background topics like aspect ratios, resolution, and color management and provide plenty of tips for taking better photos.
"Mr. Engst’s book is well written, easy to follow, and contains lots of in depth information to help you become an iPhoto expert quickly."
—Nancy Gravley, writing for The Mac Observer about an earlier edition
