In iPhoto '11 Essential Training, Derrick Story offers an in-depth tour of the popular photo management software from Apple, demonstrating its various features for organizing, editing, and sharing images. The course covers techniques to categorize and combine images into custom collections using iPhoto's geotagging, face detection, and Smart Album features, and offers insight on how to perform key image corrections and enhancements. Also covered are tutorials on building customized slideshows and outputting collections to calendars, books, and greeting cards. Exercise files accompany the course.
So when we are in the regular application view of iPhoto in our Library pane we also have our projects and this is where we keep our greeting cards, our books, and calendars too. If we create a calendar they will show up over here and so this is very handy and it's easy to use and so forth. However, if you work in Full Screen mode you get something much different and I'm going to show you that right now. So we're going to go to Full Screen mode, I'll just click down here and here we are enjoying all the beauty of Full Screen mode and you'll notice here in our toolbar we have Projects down here also.
And if I click on that, instead of that oh-so-mundane Library pane we actually get a bookshelf here and it looks like a pine bookshelf, would be my guess, and all of our projects are right here. If we create a calendar we have the Calendar here. All of our Cards, Books. Watch this now. This is fun. Watch when I click on it. Isn't that adorable? A little light goes on, shining on our project there, so that we know what's going on. And if you double-click on that then it opens up your Project and you can continue to work on it and once you're done working on it then you can go back to the Projects view.
Now if you want to - let's say you get a card the way that you want. It says all the stuff on the inside and you want to do in other card from that location with a different picture, you can do something clever such as right-click on that card and duplicate it and now I can change the picture on this and all the type and everything else remains the same. So that's pretty fun and that is the Projects view here in iPhoto, and remember you can only get to it when you're in Full Screen mode. That's the only way that you get the bookshelf with the pretty shining light.
Once you go out of Full-Screen mode you're back to the Library pane.
