About this product
- DescriptionIn the world of the Macintosh, the digital hub is the place to be: where music, movies, digital photos, CDs, and DVDs converge. Apple's free i-ware is a key component behind this convergence--iTunes for MP3 music, iMovie for digital video, iPhoto for digital photography, iDVD for creating DVD discs, and iTools for publishing digital content on the Web. While these tools are more elegant than most, creating digital content is never straightforward. There are technical and creativity concepts to master, like how to balance file size and image quality in digital photography and how to create effective DVD menus, as well as more advanced concepts, like how to record Internet radio for later playback, prepare iMovies for Web distribution, and get digital photos printed onto mugs and mousepads. The Macintosh Digital Hub addresses all these concepts and more via a DVD-book format that delivers a highly interactive, fun learning experience. The DVD contains over two hours of instructional material. Readers actually see the steps involved in digitizing a CD, creating a movie, burning a DVD and more. When they want more technical background and tips, they can turn to the beautifully illustrated companion sections of the book. MP3 fans, home movie buffs, and amateur and professional photographers alike will find The Macintosh Digital Hub the interactive key to getting up and running on Apple i-ware.
