How to Save QuickTime Movies Without QuickTime Pro

QuickTime is a great application, but if you don't upgrade to QuickTime Pro, you won't be able to save QuickTime movies you find on the Internet. Or will you? If you aren't willing to shell out thirty dollars for Quicktime Pro and you want to download video clips to your computer, here's a quick and dirty way of doing so. Just note that this will only work with videos and not streaming or protected content.

Here's how to do it:

Make a Movie with iMovie and a Digital Camera

We've used iMovie for a couple of years to make movies (well, short videos). It's a great tool: Easy to use, and inexpensive! Here, in a nutshell, is how you can do it too. We'll show you how to do it without an expensive camcorder -- from start to finish, and on the cheap. We're slanting our tutorial to those of you who have digital cameras (use the movie mode -- you won't regret it!).

How to Print Borderless Photos with iPhoto

We use iPhoto for our digital photos. (Who doesn't?) For this tutorial, we wanted to perform two iPhoto tasks: print 8.5x11 photos, and crop a portrait photo from a landscape original. We used iPhoto '06 on Mac OS 10.4, with a Hewlett-Packard 7960 Photosmart printer. Differences in printers and in the iPhoto and OS versions should not make for too dissimilar of a process, provided the OS is in the 10.4 range.

How to Create Slideshows Using iDVD

What You Need

- An Apple computer with a SuperDrive
- Mac OS 10.3.9 or later
- iLife '06 ($79, http://store.apple.com)

Do you want to show off your photos on something besides your Mac? Then you need to create a slideshow and burn it to a DVD! You'll be able to play your slideshow on any DVD player.
