Hey, What’s This?
This ebook began as a print book in Peachpit Press’s Visual QuickStart Guide series. We’ve now 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 download the free 47-page sample to see what it looks like, since it is different from our Take Control design.

If you’ve found yourself wanting a complete manual for iPhoto 6, look no further than Take Control publisher Adam Engst’s iPhoto 6: Visual QuickStart Guide. Relying on concise, step-by-step instructions supported by numerous full-color screenshots (providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Adam and Tonya’s life), this title first explains how best to import, organize, and edit your photos.

Adam then shows you how to create slideshows and prints, along with stunning photo books, greeting cards, and calendars. Also covered are how to get started with photocasting, burn CDs for Mac and Windows users, send photos via email, share an iPhoto Library with another person, and more. A troubleshooting chapter helps readers solve common problems, followed by a pair of appendixes, one covering background topics like aspect ratios, resolution, and color management; and another that provides lots of tips for taking better photos.

You may instead be interested in the newer iPhoto ’08: Visual QuickStart Guide or iPhoto ’09: Visual QuickStart Guide.
