Updates & Corrections

Please note the exam code included in this book expires on January 31, 2011.


On page 45, due to a change in the interface, the field in blue shown in the screenshot above step 3 should say "photo place" and the drop-down menu should read "Find on map".

On page 101, Apple has replaced "Name" with "Face" in the current version of iPhoto. Thus, the two screenshots on page 101 and the first one on 102 should say "Face" instead of "Name"; and in step 2 on page 101, "Name" should be replaced by "Face".
