Recommended Reading: iPhoto '11: The Missing Manual


With David Pogue as co-author (along with the talented Lesa Snider), "iPhoto '11: The Missing Manual" (http://macte.ch/v8Q3G) has a lively, tongue-in-cheek approach that keeps things lively. But it's also packed with useful info.

iPhoto '11 makes it easier than ever to transfer photos from a digital camera, organize them, and publish, print, or share them. Of course, there's still no printed manual -- and the folks at the Missing Manual brand no doubt thank you sincerely for that, Apple. The new version of iPhoto boasts loads of new features including easier ways to get your photos online and new options for creating printed projects. And Pogue and Snider cover 'em all, covering topics such as:

° Organizing your collection. Discover all of the options for grouping your pictures -- by events, in albums, or based on who’s in the photo or where it was taken.

° Sharpening your editing skills. Learn how to use iPhoto’s beefed-up editing options, including its Photoshop-like adjustments panel.

° Sharings images online. Get your photos to everyone on your list by publishing them to Flickr, Facebook, and MobileMe.
° Diving into creative projects, such as building slideshows (with music), gift books, calendars, and cards.

Pogue is the weekly personal-technology columnist for "The New York Times "and an Emmy-award-winning tech correspondent for CBS News. His funny tech videos appear weekly on CNBC. With three million books in print, he is also one of the world's bestselling how-to authors. In 1999, he launched his own series of amusing, practical, and user-friendly computer books called Missing Manuals, which now includes more than 100 titles.



Snider is an acclaimed speaker and the author of "Photoshop CS5: The Missing Manual." She writes a monthly column for "Photoshop User," "Photoshop Elements Techniques" and "Macworld" magazines. In addition, Snider is a stock photographer and chief evangelist for iStockphoto.com, and founder of the creative tutorial site http://www.GraphicReporter.com . She has recorded many training videos including “From Photo to Graphic Art,” “Practical Photoshop Elements,” “Photoshop Elements for Photographers” (all at http://www.KelbyTraining.com), and “Graphic Secrets for Business Professionals” (http://www.Lynda.com).
