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.
Well I've talked about finding your photos and organizing your photos by when they were taken and by who was in them, and we have a third way in iPhoto with Places, which is where they were taken, and this is pretty fun stuff. What I'm looking at right now is the overview for Places and I get to that just by clicking on Places right here in the Library pane. And just like anything else in iPhoto, we can work in Full Screen mode also if we want to have a more pleasurable experience, a more pleasurable visual experience here.
Now when a photo has been geotagged and we're going to do to geotagging in the next movie. But when a photo has been geotagged, you actually get a pin on a map and that pin tells you that you have at least one photo in that location and you can click on that and it will show you the photos from there. Now you have this little Navigation tool right up here. So if we click on that, it brings us back to the map. Now Apple has done a little cleaning up of the Places interface and we now get these tools up here too. Before they were a sort of a separate view and so we can look at countries.
We only have one country at the moment and one state at the moment, however we are going to change that, and Cities, all up here at the top. And so if we had multiple ones then we could make a selection from here and it would take us to that area. And you have a couple of different views. You have Terrain, which we were looking at right now, and Satellite and then of course Hybrid, which gives you both text and visuals. We will go back to Terrain and then you can control how big of an area that you are looking at with the Zoom key, as we zoom out.
So that is the Places interface. I think what we need to do next is start adding pins to our map and put this technology to use.
