Extra Bits

Get Photos from Camera p. 2

  • iPhoto should open automatically when you plug your camera into your Mac. If it doesn't, open the Image Capture program (really!) that is in your Applications folder and choose Preferences. Then, in the Camera pane, select iPhoto next to When a camera is connected, open:.

  • Some cameras have to be in Play mode in order to trigger iPhoto to open.

  • Some cameras need to be dismounted before they can be disconnected. Click the eject icon next to their name in the Source list in order to dismount them.

  • Once you disconnect your camera from your computer, it will disappear from the Source list.

Get Photos from a Disk p. 3

  • You can download the photos used to create the projects in this book from the web site (see page xiii). Then drag them to iPhoto as described here.

  • You don't have to drag a whole folder. You can drag individual images into iPhoto from the Finder.

  • You can also drag photos to iPhoto from an email. This is a quick and easy way to add the pictures that your sister sent you of your niece into your iPhoto library.

  • If you drag a folder to the main part of the iPhoto window, you'll get a new film roll with the same name as the folder, as shown. If you drag a folder to the Source list at the left of the iPhoto window, you'll get a new album as well as a new film roll with the same name as the folder. For more details, see page 14.

  • Dragging photos into iPhoto is also the easiest way to get scanned photos into your library.

  • You can also choose File > Add to Library and choose the folder that contains the photographs you wish to import.
