Creating your contact book

Your contact book is just like your little black book of friends who like pictures. You should include everyone and anyone you plan on sending files to.

When you enter e-mail addresses in the book, you can easily send e-mail messages to those people. Note that this contact book is unique to Album. You cannot exchange it with other applications, including your e-mail client.

Album keeps a record of who you've e-mailed photos and even what images were sent. You can actually search for files based on who you have e-mailed them to. For details on finding photos, see Chapter 8.

If you often e-mail files to the same group of people, you can set up a group in the contact book to make your e-mailing process even more productive.

Here are the steps to create your contact book:

1. Choose ViewOContact Book.

The Contact Book dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 13-2.

2. To add a person, click the New Contact button.

The New Contact dialog box appears.

3. Enter the person's name and e-mail address, as shown in Figure 13-3. Click the Address tab to add a mailing address and phone number, if desired.

Repeat Step 3 to add all the people you want to include.
