By creating a PDF, you can distribute the completed photo book electronically so that others can view it using Adobe Acrobat Reader. By creating a PDF of your photo book, you can distribute a single file to others, instead of individual photo files. When you save a photo book as a PDF file, iPhoto creates the PDF file using basically the same process you use to print the photo book. You must specify a name for the PDF file and the location where you want to store the file. As a default, iPhoto stores the file in your personal Documents folder, but you can store it in any other location.
