Just got my new iMac, any good reference or tutorial sites?

I know this site has a ton of stuff. These forums are invaluable!

I'm also looking for video or text tutorials.

I'm a techy guy, but a complete mac idiot. I need help with basic OS stuff, how to use some programs like iPhoto, iDVD, iMovie, etc.

Any pointers or sites to visit is appreciated!


PS. I just imported eleventy-billion photos into iPhoto...woohoo. My pics never looked so good! i love this thing.

It looks good.

Hey Scott,

If you're new to the Mac, it's all about OS X Help: http://osxhelp.com/
I suggest you start at the 1st blog post, as mentioned on the front page.

Have fun!!

Thanks everyone. I love this thing!

I'm figuring most of it out, but these helpers will show me things I hven't found and stuff I still haven't figured out.

Wow! Necro-bump!
I had forgotten about this post. Now, years later, it's almost humorous. I can't use Windows anymore... it's all OS X now.
