I've always been a windows user, UNTIL about a year and a half ago my son introduced me to the world of MAC. I love my MAC. There was a bit of a learning curve, won't deny it. And I must say I'm still learning. The hardest thing for me was not having that photo editing software to work with. I'm a creature of habit, once I find something that works for me, I don't change it. Ever. Well toss that out the window. Being on this Mac I had to change my editing software. No choice.
So I sat down one day and went thru the video's at UTube until I found some on using iPhoto. Wow. If you get someone who really knows their stuff you can conquer about anything. So let me show you how I learned to work with my images in iPhoto!
First thing you have to do is figure out where you have the images you want to work on and then where you want them to go when you are done with them. Once you have that you've got it made. Now comes the fun part. So here we go! The captions UNDER each photo will explain the process for that screen.... READY?
Above - The screen that starts it all. Ignore the "Recent". Look at the pull down window. See where it says, IMPORT TO LIBRARY? Yeah that one. Click on it. When you do it opens .....
SEE, I told you it wasn't that big a deal. And once you do it a couple of times it makes things so easy! Hope this helps. I'm not the biggest techie in the world but when I find something and it works I like to share it. I know that not everyone likes or uses iPhoto, but if you've thought about it, now might be a good time to give it a try!
