Ways to deal with a low-resolution warning icon

  • Choose a different page design so the photo with the warning icon shrinks small enough that the icon disappears (Figure 7.18).

    Figure 7.18. To make the warning icon disappear, change the page design so the printed size better matches the resolution of the image. Note how the mermaid picture no longer has the warning icon now that it's set to print smaller.


  • Move the image to a different location on the current page or another page where it will appear at the necessary smaller size.

  • Cropping a photo or zooming it in book mode makes it more likely that the image won't be large enough to print properly. To remove cropping, select the image, and from the Photos menu choose Revert to Original. Remember that this will remove all your changes, not just the cropping. Try again after cropping the image less heavily.

  • If you run into this problem regularly, make sure your camera is set to take pictures at its highest resolution.

  • If you decide to live with a low-resolution warning icon, note that the icon won't appear on the printed page.

Text Warning Icons

If you see a small, yellow, triangular warning icon next to a text box while designing pages (Figure 7.17), it's because the text doesn't fit in the box. The font size is predetermined by the theme, but you can switch to a different font or shorten the text.

I've seen earlier versions of iPhoto generate these warning icons spuriously when you're zoomed all the way out. If that happens to you, zoom in, and if the icons go away, everything should print fine.
