Chapter 5. Creating Books > Arranging Photos on Pages

Arranging Photos on Pages

As you design pages, you need to arrange photos so they appear in the right order.

To arrange photos on pages:

1.
Make sure that your desired cover photo is the first (top left) image in the album in organize mode (Figure 5.7).

Figure 5.7. Drag your desired cover photo into the top left position so it’s the first image in the album.


2.
Switch to book mode and select the second page. Choose a page design for it; all themes have an optional Introduction design with plenty of room for text.

3.
Click the next page thumbnail and choose a page design. Choosing a design with more spots for photos pulls them from the pages to the right; choosing a design with fewer photo spots pushes the photos to the pages on the right.

4.
To rearrange photos on the same page, drag them to the desired locations (Figure 5.8).

Figure 5.8. To move a photo on a page, drag it to the desired location. iPhoto rearranges the photos in the album in organize mode automatically.


5.
To move an image to another page, switch to organize mode, and drag the image to the desired location. Switch back to book mode.

6.
To move a page containing multiple photos, drag it to the desired location. The other pages hop out of the way as you drag (Figure 5.9). iPhoto rearranges the photos in organize mode for you.

Figure 5.9. To move an entire page, drag its thumbnail to the desired location. iPhoto rearranges the photos in the album in organize mode automatically.


7.
Repeat steps 3 through 6 until done.
