Say Hello to iLife '05 -- And Get Your Preview Here

iLife is about to get better. At today's Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Steve Jobs unveiled iLife '05, a new version of Apple's personal digital media studio. Available on January 21 for $79 (and, as always, bundled with new Macs), iLife '05 includes new versions of iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, and GarageBand. Each program is refined and enhanced, and all four programs -- along with iTunes -- work together better than ever.

I've been working with iLife '05 for some time now, and I'm already hard at work on the next edition of my book/DVD. To whet your appetite, I've written a 16-page "first look" containing excerpts from the next edition of my book.

The preview contains full details on iLife '05's greatest hits: iPhoto's spectacular new books, enhanced editing, and broader media support; iMovie HD's high-definition and widescreen enhancements; iDVD's beautiful new design themes and enhanced authoring features; and GarageBand's multitrack recording capability, improved loop features, and new sonic options.

Like everything that comes from the collaboration between Avondale Media and Peachpit Press, the preview is in full color and is drop-dead gorgeous.
