overview

Whether it's charming wallet-size photo-booklet party favors or slideshows with dazzling transitions and synched-up soundtracks that users want to create with iPhoto, chances are they don t want to learn about every last iPhoto feature and function to do so. They just want to create something quickly--and this colorful, compact guide lets them. Veteran author Elizabeth Castro starts at the beginning, showing readers how to import, organize, edit, and select the best photos for use in their iPhoto books and slideshows. From there, she launches into the heart of this book--project-based instruction for creating books and slideshows with iPhoto. Throughout the focus is on doing as full-page, full-color screen shots and simple, step-by-step instructions lead readers through the process of assembling their first books and slideshows with iPhoto. Along the way, users will learn to take advantage of iPhoto's coolest new features: a slew of useful image-editing tools; an improved book-creation engine that lets you drag and drop photos into different layouts with ease; new ways to store, browse, and edit images; and a wider variety of styles, options, and layouts for photo books.
