These days, nobody really wants to learn everything there is to know about working with digital video, images, music, and DVDs. And even if you did, who has the time to endlessly tinker and play with it until you figure everything out?
You just want a book that will quickly show you how to get things done ¿ things that aren¿t already covered in the docs, and things you can¿t just figure out on your own.
iLife in a Snap is designed specifically for today¿s computer user:
- Somebody who is new to managing digital media with iLife, but not new to Macs.
- Somebody who doesn¿t have time for long-winded, mind-numbing explanations ¿ and certainly no time or patience for bad jokes.
Organized into a series of well-organized, bite-sized, quickly accomplished tasks, this book lets the reader zero right in on the one particular task he or she wants to accomplish, quickly figure out what to do, do it, and then get back to work.
