Apple Launches new iMac targeted at digital
Using iPhoto, Mac users can view their photos in full-screen, cross-dissolved slide shows accompanied by their favorite music; automatically create custom web pages of their photos; e-mail their photos to friends and family; order prints and enlargements online; or create and order a custom-printed, linen-covered hard bound book of their photos online.
"Digital cameras are revolutionizing the way we take pictures. iPhoto revolutionizes the way we save, organize, share and enjoy them," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO.
After plugging in a digital camera (click here for list of supported cameras), iPhoto automatically imports, catalogs, stores and displays the photos on screen. Users can view individual shots in greater detail for precise cropping, or see hundreds of photos on the screen at once. With iPhoto, users can also order professionally processed Kodak prints and enlargements online, printed by Ofoto, a subsidiary of Kodak
The new software also includes a built-in page-layout program. Users choose one of the six supplied book designs and iPhoto will automatically create a custom book of photos. Each page can be easily customized to have one, two, three or four photos. Users can even order custom-printed, linen-covered hard-bound book of photos online (for $29.99(US) for the first 10 pages and $3(US) for each additional page).
