One of the big reasons I’m such a fan of Apple computers these days is their Iphoto program. While Picasa 3 does a better job of organizing photos and makes it easy to find a certain photo you’re looking for, Iphoto has one function that I can’t find anywhere else. With just a few clicks we can create our own professional photo books. You choose the layout, the size, and the photos you want to use and then you’re off. It’s that easy. This year they are adding some revolutionary features such as face recognition (which will allow you to search for friends WITHIN photos) and slideshows that can be exported to the handheld devices such as the Iphone. As always Mac has also got video tutorials that guide you through the process making it as easy as pie. The books can be ordered online and will arrive at your doorstep within 2 weeks. They make great keepsakes and people are always impressed when they see them for the first time – I know I was.
If anyone hears of a windows program that has the same feature please let me know I’d love to give it a test drive.
