Introduction

The iLife suite might be one of the best things about having a Mac. It’s called a suite because it includes the following applications:


  • iPhoto
  • iMovie
  • iWeb
  • iDVD
  • GarageBand

Each of these applications empowers you to do amazing and creative things with digital photos, movies, and sound, and then you can publish what you create online and on DVD.

The iLife applications are great for several reasons. First, they are powerful and feature packed so that you have amazing toolkits available to you with almost no limits to what you can do. Second, they are well designed so that you can focus on your projects rather than the software. Third, they are designed to work together so that you can use the content in each application for projects in the other applications easily. For example, you can use photos in iPhoto or in iMovie projects or publish them in iWeb with just a couple of mouse clicks.

This book is designed to make your entry to the iLife, well, easy. (It’s not hard to figure where we got the book’s title, is it?) This book is designed to be as visually appealing and intuitive as the iLife software itself. As you flip through its pages, you will see lots of graphics and just a little text to guide you on your way. You will accomplish the tasks with a minimum of reading; steps are linked to the graphics to make it easy to follow along.

The book is organized into groups for each application. Within the groups, the chapters start at the beginning for that application and move toward the “end” in the same way you do projects. You can jump to any application’s first chapter and getgoing without reading the chapters that came before (for example, move to Chapter 7 to get going with iMovie). You should definitely read Chapter 1 to get started because that chapter includes topics that apply to all the applications.

The best way to learn how to be creative with iLife is to use its applications to create your own projects. The steps in this book will get you going and help you combine your content and creativity with the amazing iLife tools with great results. So, grab your Mac, open this book where you want to start, and enjoy!
