Sebastopol, CA--iPhoto, Apple's wildly popular application for
organizing, retrieving, and sharing digital images, has finally given
people who own digital cameras something to do with all the pictures
they take. "Until now, you almost needed a degree in computer science
to process your digital photos," says David Pogue, coauthor, with
Joseph Schorr and Derrick Story, of iPhoto: The Missing Manual (Pogue
Press/O'Reilly, US $24.95). "Sure, you could take the pictures easily
enough, but then what? The entire process was so complicated that the
old-fashioned way of shooting prints and stuffing them in a shoe box
didn't seem so bad." With Pogue's latest book, iPhoto users can quickly
learn how to take their digital photos to the screen, to the Web, to
printouts, to hardbound photo books, even to DVDs.
"iPhoto: The Missing Manual" takes readers far beyond iPhoto's
seemingly simple feature list. And the software application is just the
beginning. The book also covers choosing and mastering a digital
camera, the basics of good photocomposition, and tips for shooting
special subjects like kids, sports, nighttime shots, portraits, and
"iPhoto has done for digital photography what the microwave did to
cooking," Pogue proclaims. "And 'iPhoto: The Missing Manual' gives you
everything you need to know, from selecting the right camera to
publishing the images on the Web."
The latest in the series of bestselling "Missing Manual" titles created
by prolific writer/publisher Pogue in collaboration with O'Reilly &
Associates, "iPhoto: The Missing Manual" is "the book that should have
been in the box," and more. It's the essential guide for any Mac user
who wants to master digital photography.
