Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Creating Cards Calendars and Books with Photos for OS X.
- Before you take this class, it's a good idea to have a basic familiarity with Photos for OS X. Now, if you haven't used this program very much, make sure you check out the essential training series here, available on lynda.com, as well as some of the classes that I have that'll help you do more with your images. However, if you're coming from iPhoto, and you've created books, calendars, or cards in the past, you'll find the process similar. There are some differences between the two programs, but the overall design process is pretty much the same.
Ideally, you'll also have a good familiarity with working with your computer, basic computer operations, like using the mouse and interacting on screen. This is a fairly straightforward process, so whether you're a kid, a grown up, or somewhere in between, you could actually create some fantastic things easily with Photos for OS X.
