I tell you, when I hear someone decry the Apple computer, inside I just get ill at their profound level of ignorance. I really don’t blame them; sadly, they just don’t know any better. Last night, using iPhoto, I created a hard cover book from my trip to London. Try doing that on a windows machine without losing your sanity. It will be gorgeous, and I should have it in a few days from Kodak.
Just for kicks, I am uploading the cover and four pages from my book as a pdf file for you to see. Why? Well, because, on a Mac you can, and not only can you, it’s easy to do! Even making a pdf file is as easy as printing a document! To conserve bandwidth, you must have Adobe Acrobat 5 or higher to view the file. I picked pages with some interesting layout options so you can see how cool iPhoto is. The cover page is a bit deceptive because the photos will appear on a black, clothbound, hardback cover, which is not shown in the pdf file, which just looks like a white (blank) background.
For my readers who are still shackled to a windows machine, check out iPhoto–it’s just another really good reason to buy a Mac for your next computer. It comes with iLife, which is free on every Mac. You probably know one of the programs in iLife already, iTunes. They are all just as easy and powerful to use.
Today I begin working on my London Photo Album! Folks seem interested in my London trip as readership has skyrocketed to a record 209 visits hitting 514 pages yesterday alone! Well, stay tuned, the best is yet to come–work on the London Photo Album now begins!
Oh, one final thing before I start: 66% of my readers are still using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer to view my site. I promise you a better internet experience if you will download and start using the free browser Firefox! Please, for the sake of all that is holy, download it now! You will be glad you did! My site and many others do not look as they were designed to look if you use IE.
