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.

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
