(bright music) - [Voiceover] Welcome to iPhoto 09 Essential Training. I'm Damian Allen, president of Pixerati, a post-production studio based in L.A. I'll be taking you through this comprehensive training in iPhoto 09. Now if you're brand new to iPhoto, be sure to check out the getting started section first to get a feel for the interface. You'll also get to see how to import images from different sources, set preferences, and how to navigate inside of iPhoto. And regardless of whether you're a new user, or you're an iPhoto veteran from versions past, the faces and places features in this new version will change the way you organize your photos.

If you've always wanted to fix the color in your photos or touch them up a little, I'll be teaching you how to crop an image, straighten it, adjust the exposure, create effects, and apply lots of other enhancements. You'll soon find that tweaking a few simple sliders can make good photos look amazing. And finally, I'll show you how to share your photos on different viewing platforms like Facebook and Flickr and in various formats. So go ahead, grab your latest shots, launch iPhoto 09, and let's get straight into it.
