Macguide #24 arrived the other day. It contains my Newbies guide to iPhoto and PowerUp to Backups. On looking at my records I see my first Macguide article, Newbies guide to Spreadsheets, was published in issue #6, back in November – December 2002.
Since then I’ve looked at a heap of topics including Mail, iTunes, Address Book, iPod, Safari, Spotlight and a whole bunch of other handy things.
I can’t put my articles online until the print magazine is off the shelves, but here’s a little taster from the Newbies guide to iPhoto, to encourage you to buy the mag:
Having all your photos clumped together in the Library can mean you spend hours scrolling round to find the ones you want, so it’s a good idea to create some albums. An album is simply a list of photos which belong together according to your way of thinking.
One photo can be listed in as many albums as you like, but here’s the thing: there is only ever one copy of each photo, and that’s the one listed in the Library. You can delete photos from an album with no harm, but if you delete a photo from the Library then it’s gone.
