You probably already know that Macs were made for media. There’s iPhoto for organizing, editing, and sharing your digital photos; iMovie to let you become a moviemaker; iDVD for preserving that movie and playing your favorites; and of course, iTunes for managing your music. But your Mac is just as happy creating documents, browsing the Internet, putting together cool presentations, or even crunching numbers. This guide shows you how to use all those applications and more. Seven minibooks cover Mac basics; working with photos, movies, and music; using the Internet; working with iLife and iWork applications; various other Mac programs; time-saving tips; and networking. You’ll discover how to
- Set up and customize a new Mac
- Get online, choose a browser, configure an e-mail account, and instant-message with iChat
- Handle Mac security and troubleshoot problems
- Create a Web site with iWeb and get it online
- Back up your files, sync your stuff, and manage your life with your Mac
- Network your Mac with other computers, even PCs, and share files, printers, and more
