Creating Books

Even though books end up looking highly professional, they’re still easy to create. Here we’ll skim over the process of making a book; subsequent pages go into the details.

To prepare a book:

1.
Make an album containing the photos you want in your book (see “Creating Albums” and “Adding Photos to Albums” in Chapter 3, “Organizing Photos”).

2.
Click the album name to switch to it.

3.
Click the Book button under the display pane to switch to book mode.

4.
Pick a theme from the Theme pop-up menu in the book pane. Each theme offers different layout options.

5.
Decide if you want titles, comments, or page numbers to show in your book. Not all themes display them regardless of how you set the checkboxes.

6.
Working left to right, choose the design for each page from the Page Design pop-up menu and add text as desired. To keep a page from changing, click Lock Page.

7.
Click Preview at any time to see your book in its own window at a larger size. You can also print a draft book; choose Print from the File menu ().

8.
When you’re done, click the Order Book button, and run through the process of ordering your book. For details about this process, see “Ordering Books” in Chapter 6, “Sharing Photos.”
