About the Book

Our experts show you all the fun hidden in the software you already own!
Here's what you will find inside:
Written in the indelible MacAddict style you have come to love, we provide both a thorough overview of each iApp, as well as a dose of MacAddict tips, tricks, and style.
Hundreds of resources and links to software and hardware that will help improve your iLife even more. Some are products you can buy, some are fabulous freeware and shareware goodies developed by fellow Mac lovers.
iTunes® is friend to all music fans, especially iPod® owners. We show you how to turn your timid Mac into an audio powerhouse!
We show wannabe rock stars how to make music with Apple's GarageBand™, the music-making software that turns guitar-strummers and keyboard plunkers into music producers.
Edit and manage your digital photo collection using Apple's iPhoto™, an industrial-strength picture management tool.
Be your own producer, using iMovie®. Shoot, edit, and add music to your own home movies– whether you're filming your buddy's first bungee jump or your little girl's first steps, we show you how to make it look professional.
Once your video is captured, edited, and ready to distribute, use iDVD™ to package it up and share it with friends and family. We show you how!
Just as surely as Macworld Expo San Francisco follows the New Year, iDVD is the logical next step for movie-makers who want to share their projects with a breathless public.
Chat your days away on the Internet with iChat, use iCal® to schedule your hot personal life, and use iSync to take it all with you on your portable computer, iPod, or PDA.
Every new—or even relatively new—Mac® comes loaded with powerful "digital lifestyle" applications. Problem is, Apple provides little if any documentation. Sure, these iApps are easy to use, but each of them also has tons of undocumented features and shortcuts. We'll visually explain each app's basic features, then go beyond the basics to show hidden features and time-saving shortcuts. In addition, each section that focuses on the creative iApps will include off-the-wall and entertaining—yet useful—projects that'll show you how to have fun with the easy-but-powerful software that came with your Mac. Finally, we'll take a look inside the Utilities folder to explore all its geeky goodness, and teach you which of these apps can help you, and which are better left alone—and which one is the gateway to a host of old-school games that we bet you didn't even know were there. Only MacAddict knows how to turn dry and technically complex subjects into a value-filled collection of expert/insider tips and tricks, and yet keep the whole package a light, surprising, entertaining page-turner. Even if you're not in need of advice in a particular technical area, you'll read that area anyway, just for the fun of it.
