Sharing Pictures: Macintosh
Sharing (a bit different from what
your kindergarten teacher taught you)
The iPhoto program arranges pictures
in albums. There are three basic ways of creating an
album in iPhoto:
The simplest way to share pictures in any computer is to burn them to a Compact Disc (CD) or a Digital Versatile Disc (DVD). Macintosh systems equipped with either a “ComboDrive” (CD recording, DVD reading) or a “SuperDrive” (CD and DVD recording) can copy an iPhoto album to a CD-R or CD-RW disc. To make a CD, select an album from the Source menu (or create a new album of acquired pictures), and then click on Share > Burn Disc. The computer will prompt the user to “Please insert a blank disc”. Mount a blank disc in the optical drive and click on OK to proceed.
Pictures may be uploaded to an Internet home page, published in a “.mac” photo-sharing site or sent to an Internet photo-processor for printing, all from the Share pull-down menu.
The Book tool, below the main photo view window, makes it easy to create custom, printed photo albums on an inkjet printer, or a color laser printer.
The Slideshow tool allows the user to display photos in a full-screen presentation, complete with music, narration and visual effects between slides. And, once a slideshow has been created, it can be exported to Apple’s iDVD application, where the slideshow can be rendered into a DVD video presentation.
