Organizing images in an iPhoto library has always been easy, but with the new Places feature, photographers just need a few clicks of the mouse to create albums with geo–specific data. In iPhoto ’09: 10 Things to Know About Places, professional photographer Derrick Story explores the functions of Places and shows how geotagging can help with accessing photos, creating Smart Albums, and adding dimension to printed photo collections.
We shoot pictures all over the place, from our own front yard to the zoo, to out-of-the-way vacation spots. How do you keep track of them all? Three words. Location, location, location. Where we take a picture is sometimes as important as who is in it. Now iPhoto can locate your picture in your library by reading the geo-data that you have given it. Hi! My name is Derrick Story and I would like to welcome you to iPhoto '09: 10 Things to Know About Places. I'm a professional photographer and a senior contributor for Macworld magazine. That means two things: I take a lot of pictures and I travel a lot. So I was intrigued when Apple introduced the Places function to iPhoto '09.
In this course, I'm going to show you ten ways to get the most out of Places. You see how simple it is to add geo- data to the photos already in your library and how to use geo-data from GPS- enabled cameras. I'll show you ways to search, organize and export pictures with location data. We'll also get into plotting your vacation photos on a map so you can print it out or include it in a book. Photos are all about remembering what it was like at a certain time in a certain spot. Places makes it that much easier to recall the moment.
