Summary

This chapter introduced you to iLife '05 and the applications it encompasses. iTunes can be used to turn your Macintosh into the centerpiece of your entertainment system. iTunes gives you access to audio media in a straightforward and entertaining manner, and its special features make organization a snap. The recent addition of the online Music Store provides a convenient source for high-quality versions of recent releases. iPhoto helps you manage and share your digital photographs. With features for editing and sharing your work, you can easily spend hours perfecting your images and preparing them for display. GarageBand helps you compose music, even if your only musical training is years of listening. By combining and refining snippets of percussion and instrumentation, you can create an original work and easily share it with others. (If you are more musically advanced, GarageBand also enables you to record and mix your own music.) iMovie HD, a digital video editing application, enables you to turn your home movies into finished products with titles, music, and transitions. It also lets you share your movies in several popular formats. Finally, iDVD lets you share your video or still photos in the popular DVD format, with features that rival those of professionally made DVDs. If you're a music enthusiast, digital photographer, or budding filmmaker, iLife '05 is for you.
