I'd like to give you a brief overview of the new features in iPhoto '11, and I am going to start with Full Screen mode. I think it's probably the most notable of the new features and I am going to click down here. The cool thing about this is you can do all of your work in Full Screen mode, use all the pixels in your display. Whether you're image editing or creating a card, you can do it all in Full Screen mode, and it's very attractive. Now they've also done some work with the sharing. Let me go down here to Share.
You can control the images on Facebook and Flickr from iPhoto and they've improved that communication. They've added some email templates for emailing photos. Some folks love this new function, some folks feel like it's a takeaway. I am going to show you how it works and let you decide for yourself. Slideshows also have some very attractive new template so you can make dynamite slideshows right here in iPhoto. The photo books have changed a lot.
So I'm going to go under Create right here and they've rewritten the whole book generating tool here and iPhoto actually lays out your book for you and then you can make adjustments from there. Very handy and again I am going to show that to you. Then finally, letterpress cards, which is a very stylish output. So you can put your photo on this very nice paper with a letterpress styling, very attractive, and we'll show you that too. So that's just a nice brief overview of the new features in iPhoto '11 and we are going to dig into them right now.
