Bringing Digital Photography into the Light: O'Reilly and Pogue Press Release a Missing Manual for Apple's iPhoto

Sebastopol, CA--iPhoto, Apple's wildly popular application for organizing, retrieving, and sharing digital images, has finally given people who own digital cameras something to do with all the pictures they take. "Until now, you almost needed a degree in computer science to process your digital photos," says David Pogue, coauthor, with Joseph Schorr and Derrick Story, of iPhoto: The Missing Manual (Pogue Press/O'Reilly, US $24.95). "Sure, you could take the pictures easily enough, but then what? The entire process was so complicated that the old-fashioned way of shooting prints and stuffing them in a shoe box didn't seem so bad." With Pogue's latest book, iPhoto users can quickly learn how to take their digital photos to the screen, to the Web, to printouts, to hardbound photo books, even to DVDs.

"iPhoto: The Missing Manual" takes readers far beyond iPhoto's seemingly simple feature list. And the software application is just the beginning. The book also covers choosing and mastering a digital camera, the basics of good photocomposition, and tips for shooting special subjects like kids, sports, nighttime shots, portraits, and more.

"iPhoto has done for digital photography what the microwave did to cooking," Pogue proclaims. "And 'iPhoto: The Missing Manual' gives you everything you need to know, from selecting the right camera to publishing the images on the Web."

The latest in the series of bestselling "Missing Manual" titles created by prolific writer/publisher Pogue in collaboration with O'Reilly & Associates, "iPhoto: The Missing Manual" is "the book that should have been in the box," and more. It's the essential guide for any Mac user who wants to master digital photography.
