Overview

Learn how to use the basic design tools that already come with your Mac—iLife, AppleWorks, TextEdit, and more. What if it were just you and your Macintosh stranded on a desert island? Would you have the tools and skills necessary to design your way out of the situation—to create a flyer to stick in bottles, a Web site to alert people to your situation, a movie to document your adventure? If you’d remembered to bring along this handy guide, you would! In this witty and engaging full-color book, author Andrew Shalat shows you how to accomplish a surprising number of design projects using the Apple iLife, iWork, and AppleWorks suites of applications, .Mac services, and the tools that come with Mac OS X.

Andrew shows how to create the projects using the simplest Mac tools, from TextEdit and Grab. Then, in sections called “For a Few Bucks More,” Andrew demonstrates how to create the same projects using the tools that are part of Apple’s own easy-to-use and powerful software suites and services.

Divided into three main sections—print, Web, and video—this book demonstrates how to:
•   Make postcards, flyers, business cards, and logos  with TextEdit, AppleWorks, and Pages.
•   Put together Web pages using .Mac, iWork, iPhoto, AppleWorks.
•   Make videos using iPhoto, GarageBand, and iMovie.

Plus, the book offers up plenty of tips and rules of thumb to guide your design.
