Importing Photos From Other Sources
You may also want to import photos from other sources (e.g., a photo that was sent to you from a friend in an email that you saved previously to your hard drive). To import photos from other sources, follow the instructions below: 1. Choose File > Add To Library (Command-O). 2. Select the individual photos you want to import, or select an entire folder or disk. 3. Click Import. Back in iPhoto, click on the Photo Library in the left Source column of iPhoto and scroll through the pictures to nd the imported photo(s). You can also drag individual photos or an entire folder from the Finder into iPhoto's photo viewing area. If you drag a folder, a lm roll is created with the folder's name. If the folder you import contains subfolders, lm rolls are created with each subfolder's name.
Figure 2: New Album Dialog Box

Creating a Photo Album

A Photo Album is simply a way to organize your photos according to a specic theme or event; just think of it as a type of folder structure in iPhoto. To create a Photo Album: 1. Select File > New Album (Command-N) or click the Add button near the bottom-left corner of the iPhoto window and choose Album from the New pop-up menu. 2. A dialog box will appear requesting that you enter a name for the album. Type a name for the album (capitalization and spaces ARE allowed) in the text box and click Create. 3. Look to the left Source column in iPhoto and underneath the Photo Library you will see the name of the new album you just created.
Note: You can also add a photo to an album directly from another album, a CD or DVD, or from another location on your hard disk. When you add a photo to an album from another location on your hard disk, iPhoto automatically imports it into your iPhoto Library as well. Remember: The images in an iPhoto Album and an iPhoto Library are connected to one another. If you edit an image in an album, it will also be edited in the Library and vice-versa. In general, it is a good habit to duplicate an image that you wish to edit and perform the actual edit on the copy of the image. To duplicate any image, go to the iPhoto Library, click on the image and then go to Photos > Duplicate or simply click on an image and use Command-D to make a copy of the image. Note, however, that if you delete an image from an album, the image still remains in the iPhoto Library. You can also include the same photo in several albums without making multiple copies of it and the original will remain in the iPhoto Library. If you edit an image by mistake and want to revert to the original version, you can always select the image and then go to Photos > Revert to Original and

camera date. Maybe you would like to add a general title to all the photos as well, such as Class Field Trip April 2004. In iPhoto, you can change the title, date or comments on multiple photos at once. Select all the photos you want to change, and go to the menu bar Photos > Batch Change. From the pull-down menu you can set the Title, Date or Comments. Its that simple to make changes to a group of photos. Now with the date and title set, you can easily organize your photos chronologically or by title. (Note: Setting a photo's title, date, or comments changes it in the iPhoto Library and in ALL Albums, Smart Albums, and Books where it appears.)

Organizing Your Photos

There are several ways you can arrange the photos in your Photo Library or in one of your photo albums. 1. Click on the iPhoto Library and go to the View menu at the top of the iPhoto screen. Select Sort Photos and you will see a number of options from the submenu (i.e., by Film Roll, by Date, by Keyword, by Title, by Rating). By Film Roll displays the photos how they were originally taken on the lm roll; by Date displays the photos by the date they were taken; by Keyword arranges your photos alphabetically according to the keyword assigned to them; by Title arranges them by the title you have assigned to them or that your camera assigned to them; and by Rating arranges them by the 1-5 star rating that you assigned to them. 2. Although you cannot arrange the iPhoto Library images manually, you can manually arrange the images in your photo albums that you create. Click on any photo album you have created and go to the View menu and select Sort Photos > Manually. Then just click and drag the photos around manually in your photo album in the order that you desire to organize them. (Note: Manual organization of photos is not an option within a Smart Album) 3. The option to view your photos arranged according to Film Roll is only available when you are viewing your images within the iPhoto Library view; it is not a viewing option within an Album or a Smart Album. (Note: If you happen to have a lot of photos and begin to experience slow performance in iPhoto, you can sort your photos by lm roll in View > Sort Photos > By Film Roll and then click the triangle next to a lm roll in the actual iPhoto Library in order to hide any photos youre not currently using. To see them again, simple toggle the triangle.) 4. To quickly display only your most recent lm rolls, click the Last Rolls icon in the Source list; to display only your most recent photos, click the Last Months icon. If you don't see the Last Rolls icon in the Source list, choose iPhoto > Preferences, click General at the top of the window, and select the "Show last ___ rolls album" checkbox and selecting the number of rolls you want displayed.

Figure 6: General Preferences
1. Under the area labeled Sources: select the numbers you desire for the default Smart Albums that iPhoto includes to be generated according to numbers of months and numbers of rolls. You may also select the preference of a photo count to be shown for each album. 2. Select what happens when a photo is double-clicked: Changes to edit view (choose this option for todays class), Opens photo in edit window, and Opens photo in: which allows you to have a double-clicked photo open in a selected application such as PhotoShop when you dene the application by clicking on the Select Application. button.

lows you to share songs and playlists in iTunes; however, instead of music, you can share photos with everyone on the same network. By selecting these preferences, you can share the photos of your entire library or just selected albums. You may also set a password that you can give out to friends on your network so that only a select few individuals can view your photos. (Note: Sharing preferences requires that the rewall port 8770 not be blocked on your computer. To unblock this rewall port, go to System Preferences > Sharing > Firewall) iPhoto 5 offers one more preference to setup in this dialog box that wasnt available in iPhoto 4: Keywords. Well come back to this preference later in the section where we discuss Keywords. For now, youre nished setting up your preferences. Click the red close button at the top-left corner of the dialog box to apply these preference settings and close the Preferences dialog box.

Rotating Images

Occasionally, you may take a picture with your camera held vertically (portrait view) and then the image comes into iPhoto incorrectly. For example, the picture below was taken with the camera held vertically and now it appears to be turned on its side when imported in iPhoto:
Figure 7: Appearance Preferences

1. In the Border: area of this dialog box, make your Appearance choices of Outline and Drop Shadow, and select the color you wish to have in the area labeled Background: (Note: This is referring to the background tint when viewing the Photo Library or individual albums in iPhoto. A darker choice is generally better.) 2. Choose how the photos are organized and aligned in the area labeled Organize View: (i.e., Align photos to grid and/or Place most recent photos at the top). 3. Select the size of the Source Text: (this is the size of the text in the program itself, such as the size of the text for the album names listed in the far left column of the iPhoto Source window.) Now that youre nished with setting up the Appearance preferences, click on the Sharing button at the top of this dialog box to set the Sharing preferences. The Sharing Preferences allow you to share your creations with anyone who shares the same network. Now you can share your photos with your whole family or your Macintosh work colleagues that share the same network. iPhoto offers Rendezvous photo sharing -- the same technology that alApple iPhoto 5 Tutorial - Dr. Luanne Fose"
Figure 8: Photo in Need of Rotation
To place the photo in the correct direction, click on the photo to select it and then click on the Rotate button in order to turn the photo at 90-degree angles; keep clicking until it is vertically displayed as you desire. (In this case, because my Preferences were set with a counter-clockwise rotation, I only had to click on the Rotate button once to place the photo into the proper vertical alignment, whereas a clockwise rotation would have required three mouse clicks.)
Adding Titles & Comments to Photos
You can add titles and comments to any of your photos: 1. Click on the photo album you desire. At the bottom of the Source list, you will see an Information box providing information on the album you clicked upon. If you dont see the Information box, click on the info button underneath the column containing the photo albums.
Customizing the Organize Toolbar
The organize toolbar is the row of buttons that appears at the bottom of the iPhoto window when the iPhoto library or an album is selected in the Source list. You can customize the organize toolbar by adding or removing buttons that let you perform the most common tasks for sharing your photos. 1. Choose Share > Show in Toolbar and select the buttons you want to appear in the toolbar from the submenu. (A selected item has a check-mark next to it; choose the item again to deselect it.) 2. For the purpose of this tutorial, please select all of the items (one-by-one) in this list so that they have a checkmark next to them. You will see the buttons appear at the bottom of the iPhoto window. If you dont see all of your choices, click on the arrow (>>) and you will see them.

To preview your page before publishing it on a web server, drag the page into your browser (e.g., Safari, Internet Explorer, or Netscape). Notice how the main.html page with thumbnails allows you to double-click on an image and see the larger image. iPhoto has also generated web pages for the larger images, which also allows for navigation to previous or next images. 9. NOTE: Be sure when you upload these les onto a web server that you upload the entire folder containing all the subfolders on the web site.
Export a Slideshow as HTML Web Pages
This is another really cool feature of iPhoto. Did I say that all of the features are cool? You can export your slideshow into HTML so that it is organized on a web page for you with thumbnails that visitors can click on and see a larger version of your prized photos. Heres how: 1. Make a new folder on your Desktop (Command+Shift+N) and give the folder a title (e.g., iPhoto Web Page) 2. Open iPhoto and select the photo album you wish to make into a web page. Make sure that none of the photos are selected by choosing Edit > Select None; otherwise, youll have a movie of only the photos that are selected in the album. 3. Go to Share > Export 4. When the Export Photos dialog box appears, click on the tab labeled Web Page.

Exporting Photos for Other Purposes
You may wish to export your photos from an album to send to someone in an email or to import into another application. iPhoto makes this task very simple and allows you to congure the exact size of the exported photos. 1. Create a new folder on your Desktop (Command+Shift+N) and give it a name (e.g., Photos Export) 2. Select the photo(s) or a photo album you want to export. 3. Choose Share > Export

Extension: Choose whether to add the le format extensions (such as.jpg or.tiff) to the end of the photos lenames, titles, or album names. 6. Click the Export button. 7. Navigate to the new folder you created previously on your Desktop (i.e., Photos Export) and then click the OK button to save the les in their new format to the folder.
iPhoto switches to book view, and your new book appears in the Source list. If you want, type a new name for your book in the Source list. 9. Once you create a book, you can change the order of pages or photos, add and change the appearance of text, and even customize the design of individual pages. 10.

Tips on Purchasing a Digital Camera
In order to make the best choice when buying a digital camera, you need to think about how you will be using it. Will you be printing pictures or emailing pictures or publishing them on the web? Will you be taking most of your pictures indoors or outdoors? Will you be taking pictures mostly in the daytime or at nighttime? Will you be taking portrait or landscape shots? Will your subjects be in action shots or mostly stills? Here are some issues you should consider when purchasing a digital camera: 1. Resolution: This refers to the number of dots or pixels per image. Resolution directly impacts the size of a picture you can print. Put simply, more pixels translates into a larger picture that still looks good. With a higher resolution, the camera has captured more detail and doesn't have to "guess" or interpolate at the missing dots or expand the existing ones which often results in a blotchylooking print. Thus, the more pixels there are the better the resolution and the quality of the printed image. In the past, older cameras offered 1- to 2-megapixels; however, newer cameras are now offering up to 8-megapixels. As a rule of thumb, a 2-megapixel camera can produce a good 5 X 7 print; a 3-megapixel camera produces an excellent 8 X 10; and a 4-megapixel camera or above, will result in a good 11 X 17 print. Obviously, the manner in which you plan to use the camera will help you to determine the amount of resolution you need.

Using iPhoto in the Classroom
Digital cameras offer teachers unlimited opportunities to engage students and to incorporate technology into their curriculum. At Cal Poly students, faculty, and staff can check out digital still cameras from Media Distribution Services (http://mds.calpoly.edu) in Building 2 on the rst oor. Check out a camera and experiment with some student projects. Here are some examples of projects you can assign: 1. Assign pairs of students to take pictures on a topic related to class and compose their own iPhoto slideshow; then have them describe the slideshow to the class in a class presentation as it plays on a data projector or post it into Blackboard. 2. Have foreign language students take pictures of everyday things and put into an iPhoto slideshow or web page with a title and comments in Spanish/French/ Italian vocabulary. Or if you prefer, keep the pictures in an iPhoto album arrangement and have them printed out for a classroom "Pictionary" so your students can quiz each other on foreign language vocabulary in class. 3. Take photos of your students the rst day of class with your digital camera and create a directory that you can post in Blackboard to acquaint the students with one another. 4. Take photos of your students the rst day of class and export the pictures into small images that you can import into a Word document. Add names and useful information about the students to help you remember them. This is a great way to help you learn students names more quickly, especially in a large lecture hall. 5. Take a picture of each student in your class and send the le with the iPhoto email tool for the student to post in Blackboard with their own personal Blackboard home page. On their home page, students can share information about themselves with their classmates, express career interests or favorite links. 6. Take a digital camera on a class eld trip. When you return to the classroom, have each student select a picture to label with a short description of what was happening or why this was important; then print a copy for everyone so they can remember what they learned on the trip. 7. Document the growth of a school project: (e.g., a school construction project; planting and growing of a class garden; changes in animals in a laboratory, etc.) Assign a new class photographer every week and have them document moments that demonstrate learning in action with a short description of what was happening and post the photos and descriptions in Blackboard. 8. Take photos of student nal projects in 3-D form and post them in Blackboard.

Apple iPhoto 6

Dr. Luanne Fose, Instructor
A Classroom Tutorial for Cal Poly Faculty & Staff Winter 2007

Introduction

This workshop for Mac OS X users focuses upon using iPhoto 6, the easy-to-use, all-in-one application for importing, organizing, editing, and sharing digital photos. Apples newest version of iPhoto in iLife 6 can handle even more images than before (up to 250,000), is even faster than iPhoto 5, and provides an assortment of useful new features. Lets learn whats new in iPhoto 6 and how to use its effects and features to minimize your workload. Create fantastic photos, awesome slideshows, and web page photo galleries with the simplistic ease that Apple software is known for producing.
iPhoto 6 Gains Speed (NEW)
iPhoto 6 is much faster than previous versions. It opens quicker and can scroll through your thumbnails much faster. iPhoto can now manage 250,000 photos in a single library without choking. This new version allows you to see an overlay showing the lm roll name and the date of the lm roll as you scroll quickly through the iPhoto library. And unlike previous versions of iPhoto, youre no longer required to copy imported pictures into its own library if you dont want to. To turn that option off, select iPhoto > Preferences > Advanced and uncheck the option of Copy les to iPhoto Library folder when adding to library.
they are HUGE! a RAW image can be 3-4 times bigger than its JPEG counterpart. The advantage of the RAW image format is that you can manually process them in a program such as Photoshop where you would do things that you would normally do with your camera settings BEFORE you take the picture (e.g., adjust the lighting, sharpening, white balance, etc.) iPhoto can import the RAW image format into its Library but it immediately makes a JPEG out of the image. You must remember that iPhoto is a consumer-level program and compression is needed as well to work with the other iLife software (e.g., iMovie, iWeb, GarageBand, etc.) However, even though iPhoto 6 compresses the RAW image, you can still nd it in the Originals folder of your Pictures > iPhoto Library even though the Library of the program will display the JPEG conversions. You will need a program such as Adobe Photoshop or Apples Aperture to manipulate and edit the RAW image data.
iPhoto 6 Integrated with iWeb Now (NEW)
iPhoto 6 is now totally integrated with iWeb allowing for manipulation of your photos within iWeb in a way that you are used to.

iPhoto 6 Calendars (NEW)

iPhoto 6 introduces a calendar feature - another way for Apple to make more money! Basically, you go through the same steps as creating an Apple Book to create a calendar by choosing an album of pictures and clicking on the Calendar icon. When you are done, you are sent to an Apple order form to buy your calendar online and have it sent in the mail a few days later.
iPhoto 6 Handles the RAW Image Format (NEW)
New to iPhoto 6 is the ability to handle the RAW image format (extension =.CRW). Most cameras take pictures in JPEG format, which is a type of compression format. For most people, this compression is OK for normal purposes. No matter how you feel about it, JPEG format is a form of compression, meaning that a certain amount of information from the photo is disregarded. Professional photographers prefer cameras that allow for the use of RAW images as well as JPEG format. RAW images are completely uncompressed with RAW data as picked up by the cameras sensors and

iPhoto 6 Greeting Cards (NEW)
Did we mention that Apple wants to make more money? The Greeting Card feature allows you to create greeting cards from a photo based upon prescribed templates that are provided in iPhoto 6. Like the calendar feature, you simply click
on the picture you want to make a greeting card from and select the Card icon. Set up your theme from prescribed templates and ll out the Apple order form to buy them online. (Personally, I prefer the free method of making greeting cards with the Print feature that will be discussed later on in this tutorial.)
into iPhoto by selecting File > Subscribe to Photocast and paste the URL there and press Subscribe. 9. Recipients cannot edit the photos in the photocast; however, they can drag the photos into their own iPhoto Library and then edit them. 10. As a recipient, if you wish to stop subscribing to the photocast, select the photocast album and press Delete. When you do this, iPhoto will warn you that some of the photos are in use and will be kept in your iPhoto Library. The unused photos will be moved to the Trash unless you choose to import them. If you wish to keep the photos of the photocast that you have in your Library, click on Import photos to your Library before deleting the photocast album and then click the Delete button of this dialog box. 11. On the publishing side of the photocast, you will see a photocast icon next to the album. To stop publishing your photocast album, select the album and then select Share > Photocast and where it says, Are you sure you want to stop publishing the photocast album? click on the Stop Publishing button. This will stop publication of your photocast and remove the photo album from your.Mac account; however, it will NOT remove your photos from your iPhoto Library. 12. Windows users can use a compatible free RSS reader such as Blog Navigator (Google it). The Try It version is freeware which allows you to view the photocast. Within Blog Navigator, select New and copy/paste the URL address of the photocast. Of course, the layout is not nearly as nice as on a Mac with iPhoto but it will allow your Windows friends and relatives to view your photos. Bonus Question: Do Mac users allow friends and relatives to even use Windows? I thought the saying was: Friends dont let friends use PCs!
iPhoto 6 - Photocasting (NEW)
This new feature allows you to publish your photos to the web where your friends and family can subscribe. When you update your photocast with new pictures, the new pictures automatically appear on each subscribers photocast area. How does it work? If you have a bunch of photos you want to share with friends and family, you dont need to create a webpage anymore displaying your photos (although that is easy enough to do with iWeb) and you dont need to burn them to CD and pass them out. Instead, you can post them to an album that you publish to your.Mac account (approx. $99 per year). When you provide your friends and family with the proper URL for that photocast, they will be able to see your photos. You can password protect it so that only the people you wish to see it can view it. Windows users can use an RSS feed to view your pictures but if they are a Mac user with iPhoto, they can view your photocast right in their own iPhoto software (NOTE: Mac recipients must have iPhoto 6, not previous versions of iPhoto, to view the photocast within iPhoto.) Here are the steps for setting up a photocast: 1. Place the photos you want to share with others in an album. 2. Select the album and choose Share > Photocast or click on the Photocast button at the bottom of your iPhoto screen. 3. When the dialog box appears, select Photo size (i.e., Actual size, small, medium, or large). 4. Choose to automatically update when the album changes. This option will allow your guests to see any new pictures that you added or edited. 5. Select Require name and password and supply information to restrict access. (NOTE: Dont provide your.Mac account info here, that would be a big mistake!) 6. Click the Publish button and youll see a gear next to the album name showing that it is processing your request. 7. Once it is done processing and uploading to your.Mac account, it will provide you with a URL address or the option to click Announce Photocast, which will open your email program and give you the opportunity to send the URL address to others. 8. Mac recipients can take the URL in the email and click on it to open it with Safari or they can copy/paste the URL

Importing Video Clips from a Camera (NEW)
iPhoto 6 has the ability to import video clips from any digital still camera that uses QuickTime -supported video formats. To import video clips from your camera into iPhoto, follow the same steps as described above for transferring photos from a digital camera. The rst frame of a video clip is shown in your iPhoto Library with a camera icon and its total running time is displayed on the bottom of its thumbnail. To play a video clip you've imported into iPhoto, double-click it. The movie will open in QuickTime Player. You can use the QuickTime controls to play and pause your movie, step through the movie frame by frame, ne-tune the sound, and more.
Importing Photos from Your Digital Camera
Importing pictures from your digital camera into iPhoto is a very simple task. The good news is that IPhoto does not require any additional drivers or software to get started! Both your computer and your camera must have built-in Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports. To import pictures from your camera, follow the steps below: 1. Plug in your digital camera into the USB port of your Macintosh and turn your camera on. 2. As soon as your camera is connected, iPhoto switches to import mode and your camera appears in the Source list. If nothing happens when you connect your camera, check your camera to see if it's turned on and set to the correct mode. (For which mode to choose, see the instructions provided with your camera.) 3. Type a roll name for the group of photos you're importing in the Roll Name eld. 4. Type a description for the group of photos in the Description eld. 5. If you want the photos to be deleted from your camera as soon as they are imported, select the "Delete items from camera after importing" checkbox. (We suggest that you NOT erase your photos in case something goes wrong in the import better to erase the photos manually on the digital camera AFTER you are sure you have secured the contents to your hard drive.) 6. Click the Import button. Wait until all your photos have been transferred into iPhoto or click Stop Import before disconnecting your camera. If your camera has a "sleep" mode, make sure it is disabled or set to a time increment long enough to allow your images to download.
IMPORTANT: Dont simply disconnect your camera after importing your photos by pulling out the USB plug from your computer port; this may cause damage to your camera. After you nish importing your photos, click the Eject button or drag the camera's icon from the Finder desktop to the Trash, turn off your camera, and then disconnect it from your computer.
Importing Photos From Other Sources
You may also want to import photos from other sources (e.g., a photo that was sent to you from a friend in an email that you saved previously to your hard drive). To import photos from other sources rst drag the photos onto your hard disk, then follow the instructions below: 1. Choose File > Import to Library (Shift-Command-I). 2. Navigate to the location of the photos you wish to import and select the individual photos you want to import or select an entire folder or disk. 3. Click Import. Back in iPhoto, click on the Photo Library in the left Source column of iPhoto and scroll through the pictures to nd the imported photo(s). You can also drag individual photos or an entire folder from the Finder into iPhoto's photo viewing area. If you drag a folder, a lm roll is created with the folder's name. If the folder you import contains subfolders, lm rolls are created with each subfolder's name.

Creating a Photo Album

A Photo Album is simply a way to organize your photos according to a specic theme or event; just think of it as a type of folder structure in iPhoto. To create a Photo Album: 1. Select File > New Album (Command-N) or click the Add button (looks like a + sign) near the bottom-left corner of the iPhoto window; then choose Album from the popup menu. 2. A dialog box will appear requesting that you enter a name for the album. Type a name for the album (capitalization and spaces ARE allowed) in the text box and then click Create. 3. Look to the left Source column in iPhoto and underneath the Photo Library you will see the name of the new album you just created.
Figure 1: Import Dialog Box
4. If you click on the new album, you will see that it is empty. You will need to move the contents that you wish
to have in your new album from the iPhoto Library where you imported the photos. 5. To add pictures to the new album, click on the iPhoto Library and click on the images you wish to have in your new album (Command-click to select multiple photos). 6. Drag the images that you have selected from the iPhoto Library on top of your new album icon and release your mouse (Note: As you drag the photos, a red dot will appear with a number inside; this is the number of images you are currently moving into the album.) 7. Now click on the new album and you will see only the pictures that you inserted there. (Note: The pictures will still remain in the main iPhoto Library but are better organized now into the specic album that you just created.) 8. As an alternative to steps 1-7 above, you can simply create an album from a selection of photos. First, select the photos you want to include in the album (Commandclick), and then choose File > New Album From Selection. Name the album and click the Create button.
the iPhoto Library. If you edit an image by mistake and want to revert to the original version, you can always select the image and then go to Photos > Revert to Original and iPhoto will return the image to its original state as it was when it was imported into iPhoto.

Batch Changes

Sometimes you may need to change the date on a large group of photos. Perhaps they are old photographs you digitally scanned, les imported with the date from when the le was created on your computer (not when the photo was captured) or your digital photos were captured with an incorrect camera date. Maybe you would like to add a general title to all the photos as well, such as Class Field Trip April 2004. In iPhoto, you can change the title, date or comments on multiple photos at once. Select all the photos you want to change, and go to the menu bar Photos > Batch Change. From the pull-down menu you can set the Title, Date or Comments. Its that simple to make changes to a group of photos. Now with the date and title set, you can easily organize your photos chronologically or by title. (WARNING: Setting a photo's title, date, or comments changes it in the iPhoto Library and in ALL Albums, Smart Albums, and Books where it appears.)
With your ratings set, you can now arrange your photos by Rating. In the menu bar, select View > Sort Photos > by Rating. You've just organized your photos by highest to lowest rating.

Figure 4: Photo Ratings

Smart Albums
Using the dates, titles or ratings of your photos, you can create Smart Albums. What is a Smart Album? It is a photo album that searches for photos in your library based on the criteria you give, such as Album, Date, Title, My Rating, Keyword, Comments, Filename, Roll, etc. When you create it, the Smart Album nds all the photos meeting your criteria. The best thing about a Smart Album is that it also keeps searching for new photos in the future and continues to add those that t the set criteria to the album.
Figure 3: Batch Change Dialog Box

iPhoto Image Ratings

Another very useful feature in iPhoto is the ability to apply ratings to your photos. Similar to ratings of songs in iTunes, you can give your photos 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 stars or none at all. To rate your photos, rst select a photo or group of photos (Command-click) that you want to give the same rating to (e.g., select a group of photos you wish to assign 5 stars). Then, you can either Control-Click (i.e., right-click) the selection and from the submenu that appears, select My Ratings and then choose the number of stars you wish to assign to the photos, or from the menu bar go to Photos > My Ratings and select the number of stars to assign to the photos you selected. To see the ratings you have assigned photos, make sure that you have View > My Rating turned on.

Assigning Keywords & Searching Photos
Another method of organizing photos is to assign keywords to the photos, which are then later searchable. Keywords are also great for setting up criteria for Smart Albums. The rst thing you will need to do is to create your own keywords by editing the keyword list in Preferences. (Note: Editing a keyword in iPhoto Preferences changes that keyword in any photos to which you have assigned it.) To add a new keyword to the Keywords list: 1. Choose iPhoto > Preferences. 2. Click the Keywords button at the top of the window. 3. Click the + (plus) button. 4. Type your new keyword. To rename an existing keyword: Click on the keyword you want to change, click the Rename button, and then type a
Figure 15: Keyword Pane in iPhoto 6
Now you will be able to search for any photo by its keyword. To nd photos that contain a specic keyword:
1. Select the Library icon or select an album, slideshow, or book that contains the photos you want to search. 2. Click the Keyword button (shown above in Figure 15). 3. To display photos that contain a specic keyword, click the keyword in the Keywords list. You can select more than one keyword to narrow your search. 4. To hide photos that contain a specic keyword, click the keyword in the Keywords list while pressing the Option key. You can select more than one keyword to narrow your search. 5. To display all photos again after you've nished a search, click the Reset (x) button.

Figure 17: Edit Button

2. In Edit mode, you will see a button labeled Enhance. Click on the Enhance button and watch closely as iPhoto enhances the photo. (Note: Sometimes the change is dramatic and other times it is quite small.)

Searching for Photos

iPhoto also has the ability to search for any photo by text contained in its lm roll, title, comments, keywords, or lename by typing its text in the Search box. To search for a photo by its lm roll, title, comments, keyword or lename: 1. Select the Library icon or select an album, slideshow, or book that contains the photos you're looking for. 2. Type text in the search eld (shown below in Figure 16). 3. As you type, photos that contain the text you entered will appear in the iPhoto window. 4. To see all photos again, click the Reset button (i.e, the little "x" in the search eld box).
Figure 18: Enhance Button
3. To compare with the way the photo looked originally, in this Edit window, hold down the Control key. Toggling back and forth with the Control key will let you compare how the enhance adjustment affected the photo. 4. When you are done with enhancing a photo, click the Done button and iPhoto will save the changes and take you back to the location you were originally at (i.e., Library or photo album) before entering the Edit window. You may also choose to enhance several photos without exiting Edit view by simply selecting a new photo to edit from the photo browser at the top of the iPhoto window and clicking the Enhance button to change the photo. (Note: If you don't see a row of photos at the top of the window, choose View > Thumbnails.) 5. Note: If you decide you dont like the enhancements and you just want to return to the original version of your photo, go to the Photos menu and select Revert to Original. A dialog box will appear saying, Are you sure you want to revert to the original version? All changes will be lost. If you wish to revert, click on the OK button and you will see your photo again in the original, unenhanced version of the photo.

Figure 20: Retouch Button
3. Click on the Retouch button and then begin moving over the blemish on the photo with your mouse that you wish to x by making brush-type strokes. 4. If you wish to zoom in so that you can select the area more easily, simply drag the Zoom slider. 5. Remember, you can always check to see what the original photo looked like to compare before and after by clicking on the photo and using the Control key to toggle back and forth or you may revert to the original version by using the Photos > Revert to Original command. 6. Click the Done button to return to the Library, album, slideshow, or book view; or select a new photo to edit from the photo browser at the top of the iPhoto window. (If you don't see a row of photos at the top of the window, choose View > Thumbnails.) (NEW) RETOUCH ADVANCED: You can also control the size of the area that you apply the retouch to by doing the steps you did for red-eye advanced: 7. Click the Retouch button to turn on the retouch tool and press the CAPS LOCK button on your keyboard. 8. Press Control-9 and then the TAB key. This will give you a tool where you can change its size with the bracket keys [ ] on your keyboard. 9. Once you get the proper size for retouching the area you desire, press the Retouch button.
Retouching a Blemish in a Photo
The Retouch tool in iPhoto is very handy for removing small facial blemishes or other imperfections in a picture. Warning: The Retouch tool is intended for very small mistakes or errors in a photo. If you use it to work on a large area of a picture, it will end up looking rather blurry and will actually draw too much attention to the blemish. Also, note that retouching a photo changes its appearance in the iPhoto Library and every album where it appears. To edit a photo without changing it
10. You can use the TAB key to toggle this advanced retouch tool back and forth. This special tools feature will continue to remain for access via the TAB key as long as you have your preferences set to Edit photo: in main window.
4. iPhoto removes the area of the photo that was not included in the selection.

Figure 19: Constrain Pull-Down Menu
4. Now when you go into the picture to select an area to crop with the mouse, you will have a set size proportion. The cursor will change into a hand. With the hand, move around the proportion window so that it ts over the area you want to crop. No matter how large you make the cropping, the ratio of the width and height will stay the same. 5. Click on the Crop button and you will see that the cropping is constrained to the 4 X 6 proportion that you chose with the mouse. 6. Click the Done button to return to the Library, album, slideshow, or book view; or select a new photo to edit from the photo browser at the top of the iPhoto window. (If you don't see a row of photos at the top of the window, choose View > Thumbnails.)
Cropping an Image in iPhoto 6
If there is an area of your photo that you wish to eliminate, you may use the Crop tool to remove the area from the picture. 1. Click on the photo in your photo album that you wish to crop and click on the Edit button. 2. Drag your mouse in a square or rectangle shape over the image to select the area you wish to retain. (Note: Once you release the mouse, if you need to enlarge or decrease the cropping box you created, simply drag from the outer edges.) 3. Click on the Crop button in the toolbar.
The Adjust Button in iPhoto 6
With the Adjust button, iPhoto 6 includes editing options for improving a photos exposure, gray balance, sharpness, brightness and contrast, color adjustment, straightening, and saturation in order to assist you in xing those not-so-perfect shots (none of us have those, right?).
Note: Adjusting a photo with this tool changes its appearance in the iPhoto Library and in every album, slideshow, and book where it appears. To edit a photo without changing it everywhere it appears, make a duplicate (Command-D) before editing. 1. To use the Adjust tools, click on the photo in your photo album that you wish to crop and click on the Edit button. 2. Click on the Adjust button (Figure 22 below).
Creating a Photo Slideshow in iPhoto 6
You can convert your photo albums into slide shows and include music to play from your iTunes library as well. 1. Select a photo album or group of photos you want in a slideshow and click on the Slideshow button. 2. Drag photos into the order you want in the Photo Browser at the top of the iPhoto viewing area. 3. Note: After you create a slideshow, you can also add photos to it by dragging them directly from another album, a CD or DVD, or from another location on your hard disk. When you add a photo to a slideshow from another location on your hard disk, iPhoto automatically imports it into your photo library.

Figure 22: Adjust Button

3. Drag the slider controls for Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Temperature, Tint, Sharpness, Straighten, and Exposure and adjust to the level you desire (see Figure 23 below). 4. After adjusting the sliders in a photo, you can press the Control key to compare the edited photo to its previous version. To reset the photo to its initial settings, click Reset Sliders. 5. If you don't like the changes you've made to a photo, you can undo your most recent change by choosing Edit > Undo. You can also revert to the photo's original version by choosing Photos > Revert to Original. 6. Click the Done button to return to the Library, album, slideshow, or book view; or select a new photo to edit from the photo browser at the top of the iPhoto window. (If you don't see a row of photos at the top of the window, choose View > Thumbnails.)
4. Select the various options for transitions and effects for each photo. To view the transitions/effects on an individual photo, click on the Preview button. 5. If you wish to use the same transition and effects globally for the entire slideshow, click on the Settings button to bring up the Settings dialog box and make your selections (Figure 24).

Set a Photo to Your Desktop Background
You probably already know that you can easily set a photo or image to be the background Desktop image for your computer by going into your System Preferences and making the appropriate changes in the Desktop & Screensaver area, but iPhoto will allow you to do this right within iPhoto. NOTE: DO NOT DO THESE NEXT STEPS IF YOU ARE IN A LAB! iPhoto makes it easy for you to assign any picture in the iPhoto Library as your Desktop image. 1. Select the photo in the photo library or an album. 2. Choose Share > Desktop or click on the Desktop icon at the bottom of the iPhoto window. 3. The Desktop will change displaying the photo that you selected as the background image. 4. You can also have your Desktop image cycle through a series of photos. Select an album or group of photos, choose Share > Desktop, and choose how often you want the picture to change from the Change picture pop-up menu (e.g., Every 30 minutes, every hour, every day, etc.) and make sure the checkmark is selected next to it. Close out this dialog box to save your changes.
Burn a Photo Album to a CD or DVD
iPhoto has a built-in feature that allows you to put your iPhoto Library or a specic photo album or even specic individual pictures on a CD or DVD and burn them. IMPORTANT: Use iPhotos burn feature only to archive your photos and albums for viewing in iPhoto. If you need to create a disc to be viewed by a Windows computer or a photo processing company, use the Burn Disc command within the Finder instead! 1. Click on individual photos, a photo album, or your entire iPhoto Library (this is great for backups). 2. Select Share > Burn or click on the Burn icon at the bottom of the iPhoto window.

3. Insert a blank CD-R , CD-RW, or DVD-R disc into the drive and click OK. Disc information appears at the bottom of the iPhoto viewing area. The green area on the disc icon represents the amount of disc space your photos require. 4. If necessary, type a new name for the disc in the Name eld and then click the Burn button. 5. Click the Burn button in the Burn Disc dialog. 6. It may take several minutes to write the disc.

Set an iPhoto Album as a Screen Saver
To protect your display, you can set a screen saver to appear automatically if your computer hasn't been used for several minutes. If you want, you can use an album from your iPhoto Library as your screen saver. The photos appear one after the other, like a slideshow. 1. Select an album and choose Edit > Select None. 2. Choose Share > Desktop and when the Desktop & Screen Saver dialog box appears, click the Screen Saver tab.

3. Instead of sharing your whole library, it is best to select Share selected albums and then choose the ones you wish to see from your other Macs. 4. You can set a name and password to restrict access to people on your network. (Dont forget to supply them with the name and password!) IMPORTANT: If you dont password protect it, anyone will be able to view your photos - BAD IDEA! 5. Now from the other Macs, go into iPhoto and open the same dialog box by going to iPhoto > Preferences > Sharing and then select Look for shared photos. The shared photos will appear in an album on your iPhoto Source list. 6. You cannot edit the pictures on a shared network but you can place them into a slideshow.

Full description

Owning a digital camera makes it easy to snap tons of photos. But once you import those digital photos from your camera to your computer, it's organizing, editing, and printing them that can cause you headaches. What to do with the piles of digital photos you're suddenly amassing? Enter iPhoto 5. Included on all new Mac systems, iPhoto 5 is a significant update to Apple's photo-editing component of its revolutionary iLife '05 suite. Aside from organizing, sharing and editing digital photos, iPhoto lets you create stunning slideshows, assemble photo albums, and burn your images to DVD, to name a few features. Written by longtime Macintosh authority and best-selling author Adam Engst, this smart, thoughtful guide ensures you make the most of it. Using simple, step-by-step instructions accompanied by copious screenshots, this book tackles all that's old and new in iPhoto 5. With the help of Adam's sharp advice and insightful instruction, you'll learn the ins and outs of using iPhoto both separately and in tandem with the other iLife apps - adding GarageBand-created tracks to your slideshows, using iPhoto slide shows in iDVD and iMovie projects, and more.
