iPhoto is an application made exclusively for Mac OS X. It makes managing your digital photo collections both easy and fun. You can effortlessly import photos straight from most digital cameras, as well as from other sources, such as a digital card reader, CD, Zip disk, or from a location on your iMac's hard disk. Use iPhoto to organize and edit your photos, then share them with friends, relatives, or business associates in a number of different ways.

Even if you don't own a digital camera, you can send your exposed film to companies that offers digital film services. These companies can process your film and put your photos on a CD or post them on the web for you to download. Visit or to see what services are available.
