iPhoto, despite the large number of features, comes with no manual. OiReilly & Associates is looking to remedy this situation with its new book, "iPhoto2: The Missing Manual." The book offers users of Appleis iPhoto software tips on managing and manipulating digital photos, choosing a camera, and even taking pictures. From OiReilly:
If Appleis iPhoto application made it easy for digital camera owners to manage, organize, store, print, and otherwise manipulate their digital photos, then iPhoto 2 has made it nearly effortless. But while iPhoto 2 may be simple to use, itis not simplistic. It offers a wide range of tools, shortcuts, and database-like features, a complete arsenal of photo-presentation features, and sophisticated multimedia and internet hooks. Newly enhanced and accelerated, iPhoto version 2 comes with everything needed to turn digital photos into slide shows, screen savers, web pages, Kodak prints, or even an attractive, hardbound book. But, it doesnit come with a single page of instructions. To Mac owners everywhere this means one thing--there has to be a Missing Manual. And theyire right. "iPhoto2: The Missing Manual" by David Pogue, Joseph Schorr, and Derrick Story (OiReilly/Pogue Press US $24.95) is the authoritative, witty guide to mastering both iPhoto 2 and the modern digital camera.
iPhoto 2 incorporates many powerful new features and improvements that the earlier version of iPhoto lacked. These include better picture editing that let users enhance color or touch-up photos within the iPhoto application, better slide shows, new printing templates, the ability to send photo attachments with a variety of email programs, burning directly to CDs and DVDs from within iPhoto, and much more.
