VINE VOICEon 1 August 2011
Having moved from Windows to an iMac in November 2010, I still find myself 9 months after, mostly using the iMac with Windows 7 on Boot Camp.

Total lack of useful documentation supplied with the iMac is partly responsible for this, plus the general unusability of the iMac for business purposes.

However, I have a huge collection of photographs and music, and pretty much my only use of the iMac has been for that. The photographs were all personally organised in a Windows folder structure, and a straight import to iPhoto destroyed that, rendering it unusable. With no basic documentation [online does not work well when trying to get up to speed] provided by Apple, and a file structure with OS X that is, in my opinion, much poorer than that of Windows, I needed something to kickstart my use of the software, as a way of kickstarting my use of the iMac generally.

The Missing Manual Books are simply brilliant - even more so when supplied in Kindle format. I use my iPad and iPhone to read them, either when using the iMac, or when elsewhere in the house, or even on the bus. The content is relevant and perfectly presented.

I can't think why Apple did not originally provide something of the sort.

I absolutely recommend this book! It is worth every penny.

A good book if you are going to get the full use out of iPhotos. Only one complaint it would help if you printed the text a little larger and in black us 70+ need this so I used there electronic view on the web sight.

I have always bought 'the missing manual' for all applications and operating systems that I have had. I have always found them very useful - they also have a comprehensive index, which is invaluable.

At last a comprehensive manual that helps to guide a user through the complex world of iPhoto. It was badly needed and has made using iPhoto so much more enjoyable.

This book is a "must have item" for those who operate the Mac iMovie video editor.
Clear concise instructions, with excellent colour photographs.
Highly recommended. ( Nice price from Amazon, too !.

Excellent. I was stumbling to get a movie done which incorporated both movie clips and stills from my camera. I was failing to find the essential things from the "help" menus and getting frustrated with the whole project. When this book arrived it not only solved my immediate problems but provided a wholly unexpected insight into other aspects of movie creating which I hadn't thought of. What I created and can create are things of real pleasure to view and opportunities to develop my skills further.

Well written and very helpful, the sort of information apple should supply. Makes using iPhoto a realistic alternative to photoshop elements when you have good equipment and just want to do minimal processing on your photos.

Well explained basic introduction to iPhoto. Useful tips and tricks and a nicely presented style would buy similar titles from same author again.

It’s not the content I dislike, it’s having the product in Kindle format.
It’s very difficult to access a manual on Kindle when one needs to go back and forth.
The manual seems well written (I have others in the missing manual series), but I regret buying it in kindle format.
