Overview

Apple's free, wildly popular iPhoto software does for digital photography what iMovie did for camcorder footage—and what Apple did for computers. In short, iPhoto is a gorgeous, polished digital shoebox for downloading, organizing, printing, publishing, and touching up unlimited numbers of digital photos.In this comprehensive, witty companion to Mac OS X: The Missing Manual and iMovie 2: The Missing Manual, Pogue Press/O'Reilly gives iPhoto 1.1 the one feature it lacks: a manual. With this guide, Macintosh fans can take their digital photos to the screen, to the Web, to printouts, to hardbound photo books, even to DVDs. And they'll learn how to take iPhoto far beyond its seemingly simple feature list.But giving someone iPhoto without also teaching basic digital-camera techniques is like giving a map to a teenager without teaching him to drive. That's why iPhoto: The Missing Manual also covers choosing and mastering a digital camera, basic photographic techniques, and tips for shooting special subjects like kids, sports, nighttime shots, portraits, and more.iPhoto: The Missing Manual is coauthored by an experienced team of Macintosh experts: David Pogue, series creator and New York Times computer columnist; Joseph Schorr, Macworld columnist and longtime Pogue collaborator; and Derrick Story, professional photographer and O'Reilly Network author.
