iPhoto Books are GREAT Mother's Day Gifts
Since I can remember, my photo management and organization software of choice was Picasa. It wasn't long after I received my first Mac that I switched to iPhoto. I know Picasa has all the online features but those aren't things I ever used anyway.
So I had been using iPhoto for well over a year and had never noticed the icons across the bottom of the screen (Book, Calendar, Card). Then I received the April edition of the Apple Insider. The entire email focused on creating photo books with iPhoto (just in time for Mother's Day of course).
Considering that my mom's house had recently burned down and she lost pretty much everything, including a life's worth of photos, I thought this was the perfect Mother's Day gift; I couldn't have been more right. It was honestly the best gift I ever gave my mom. (That's according to her, not me)
So the next time you can't think of a good Mother's Day gift, remember that iPhoto has this feature.
I would write up a how-to but there really is no need since Apple always does a great job with their tutorials.
This link WAS geared towards Mother's Day, but today when I clicked it, it was geared towards Father's day. Nevertheless, be sure to visit the iPhoto Print Products page when you are ready to create the perfect gift for your parents or grandparents.
