Chapter 7. Creating Books > To arrange photos on pages

To arrange photos on pages

  • To change the number of photo slots on a page, choose a different page type from the Page Type pop-up menu.

    If the new page type has more slots, iPhoto pulls more photos down from the unplaced photo list to fill unused slots.

    If the new page type has fewer slots, iPhoto pushes some photos back up into the unused photos list.

  • To add a photo to a page manually, drag it from the unplaced photo list or from another page to a blank portion of the page (Figure 7.13).

    Figure 7.13. To add a photo to a page, creating a new slot, drag a photo to a blank portion of the page.


  • To remove a photo from a photo slot, drag a photo from the slot to the area outside the page, or to the unplaced photo list.

    iPhoto removes the photo from the slot, putting it either at the beginning of the unplaced photo list or where you dropped it. The slot may or may not disappear, depending on the number of remaining slots.

  • To add a photo to a slot, drag it either from the unplaced photo list or from another visible slot, to the desired slot (Figure 7.14).

    Figure 7.14. To add a photo to an existing slot, drag it to the destination slot.


    If the destination slot is empty, iPhoto assigns the photo that slot. If the destination slot is already occupied, iPhoto swaps the two photos.

  • To change how a photo overlaps with an adjacent photo, -click it and choose Move to Front or Send to Back from the contextual menu that appears.

Working with Photos on Pages

There are a few things you can do in book mode after clicking a photo to select it. All of these actions use the same commands you'd use in organize or edit mode.

  • You can rotate the photo.

  • You can duplicate the photo.

  • You can revert to the original version of the photo.

  • You can set the title of one or more photos using the Information pane or the Batch Change command

  • You can see more information about the photo.
