Chapter 1. iPhoto > Create a book

Create a book

1.
First create a new album, or select an existing album, that contains the photos you want to use in a book. The order in which photos appear in the album is the order in which they will appear in the book that you create, so re-arrange the photos before you start building your book. However, if you change your mind on the order of photos you can still make changes later. The first photo in the album is used as the cover of your book.

2.
With your album selected, click the “Book” button to start the design process of building your book.

We selected the album (circled, far-left) that contains the photos we want to use in a book.

3.
In the Theme sheet that drops down (shown below), select a book type from the “Book Type” pop-up menu (shown left). Next, choose if you want double-sided pages (click the “Double-sided pages” checkbox), then a design theme from the scrolling pane on the left.

You can select from four different book styles.

4.
You can add titles, comments, or captions to most photo pages, depending on the theme style or page design you choose.

Click the “Choose Theme” button (circled above). In the message that drops down (shown below), decide if you want to place photos manually in the book, or have iPhoto automatically create a layout.
