Description - iPhoto '08 the Missing Manual by David Pogue
While the last version of iPhoto expanded the envelope with new ways to import, organize, edit, and share as many as 250,000 images, iPhoto 08 is being dramatically enhanced and taken to a whole new level. iPhoto 08 has "events" - a way of navigating through the thousands of digital photos you've taken over the years; the ability to hide photos and bring them back later; a unified search feature, so you can search by date, keyword, rating; and new editing tools including the ability to copy and paste adjustments to other photos. Books and calendars have been improved, theme based home printing is now available. Plus, there's a new "skimming" feature that enables you to quickly see different photos in an event by simply moving your mouse over the event icon. The new iPhoto extends features into .Mac, as well, by letting users publish .Mac Web galleries, and features one-button photo sharing.Apple will also leveraging the iPhone's capabilities. The iPhone can talk to .Mac, lets you pick a gallery, and e-mails photos to the Web gallery. Apple makes it sound so easy: just drag this, click that and you're done.
But, as intuitive as these features are, users can still get lost, especially if they're new to iPhoto. A manual would be helpful so that they know what they're doing before they do it. "iPhoto 08: The Missing Manual", like all the bestselling editions before it, shows users how to take advantage of all these powerful tools and beguiling new features without confusion or frustration. Popular authors David Pogue and Derrick Story offer an objective, clear-cut explanation of how things work, with plenty of undocumented tips and tricks for mastering the new iPhoto.
