Screen zooming used to show content on TV and Panther new zoom options

Sunday, November 23rd, 2003

When you want to show something on screen to many people, having a 12″ iBook might not be ideal. But there is a way around this shortcoming : using an Apple AV Cable, you can use your computer to show your screen on a TV (some other Mac portables have this option as well). This helped me when I wanted to show pictures to my family using iPhoto. But I also wanted to give titles to those pictures, and make sure names and places would be written correctly, so I asked my aunt to proofread as I wrote. Given the poor resolution of the TV, it was impossible for her to read, but using screen zooming, I managed to make it possible. Using two key sequences, I was able to zoom in to the rename box in iPhoto, and zoom back to full screen where our pictures were displayed as big as possible (filling the photo frame in iPhoto).

I’ll introduce key concepts to Screen zooming as well as the new options that appeared in Panther.
