Windows XP is the ultimate companion for any user that wants to integrate digital media into their lifestyle. And Great Digital Media with Windows XP will explain how it works, for both new and experienced users alike.

The book describes how to use the base OS tools for controlling digital cameras, sharing photographs on digital cameras without first moving them to the hard drive, and a variety of image editing tools. Windows XP also integrates with third-party photo printing services from Ofoto and Kodak so that users can make regular prints from their digital camera. For digital audio lovers, Windows XP makes it possible to rip music from CDs in MP3 or Windows Media formats, store and organize digital music, and record audio mix CDs, and Great Digital Media with Windows XP demonstrates how to do this step-by-step. Windows XP also includes tools discussed in the book for acquiring digital or analog video on the computer, adding titles and transitions, and saving the completed productions in a digital format that can be shared via the Web or e-mail.
