In this course, Macworld senior editor Christopher Breen provides a comprehensive overview of Mac OS X Lion, complete with insider tips for getting the most out of the operating system. The course shows how to configure system preferences, personalize the interface, and master gestures, as well as achieve fluency with applications such as Mail, iCal, and Preview. The course also includes tutorials on browsing the web with Safari, automating complex tasks with Automator, sharing over a network, and performing maintenance operations using the disk utility, along with timesaving techniques for using the Mac efficiently.
If you are premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this tile. I have a very few exercise files on the desktop. They include a smattering of still images, motion captures and audio files that you can drag into iMovie, and that's it, because it's just that simple. If you are a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
