Welcome

I thought it was easy to use and contains many powerful and creative features. Hi! I'm Derrick Story, professional photographer, writer and publisher of The Digital Story. And welcome to Up and Running with iPhoto. In this course, I'll show you the features that you need to do know to be productive in this friendly photo management app. Some of the topics I cover include, understanding how to organize your iPhoto library.

Improving the appearance of your pictures with it's image editing tools. Sharing your photos to Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. Creating beautiful email attachments and greeting cards. Building your own slideshows to impress your friends and family. And tapping the power of iCloud to back up your images. One of the important changes in this version of iPhoto that was introduced after Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9, was the new Share menu that replaced Create.

I'll show you how that works, and even throw in a few tips and tricks. So please join me for Up and Running with iPhoto, and let's start making beautiful pictures together.
