Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Jim Heid has captured the throbbing, pounding multimedia heart of iLife '05. His beautiful full-color book covers all you need to know to run the latest iDVD, iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand like a pro. And it comes with nearly two hours of step-by-step instructional video, on a slickly produced DVD from Heid's own highly renowned training company.

iLife '05 has been souped up big-time. Heid seamlessly weaves in all these new features, delivering the same insightful explanations that have made his book indispensable since before Apple even called these programs "iLife."

For instance, you'll learn about iPhoto 5's powerful new slide show and book-publishing features, and improved photo enhancement and organization tools. (iPhoto 5 will even work with your camera's RAW files, giving you even more control over your images.) Heid shows how iMovie HD lets you shoot widescreen, even with a miniDV camera. (Not up to that? You'll learn how to use Magic iMovie to create a whole movie with just a few clicks.)

You'll discover iDVD 5's sweet new menu design themes and more powerful authoring features. And the latest GarageBand Hot. Heid covers it all, from viewing and editing performances in standard music notation, to easily correct sour notes and sloppy timing.

You'll find hundreds of tips throughout. (How to join tracks to eliminate gaps. How to fine-tune the MIDI files you've imported into GarageBand. How to rip your old vinyl albums.) And, wherever there's something the official iLife Apps don't do, chances are Heid knows a third-party alternative. The Macintosh iLife '05 is fun to learn from, a pleasure to look at, and deeply knowledgeable about everything it covers. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
