Chapter 7. Creating Books > To design a page

To design a page

1.
Select a page by clicking it.

2.
From the Page Type pop-up menu, choose either the page type (Cover, Introduction, etc.) or the number of photos you want to appear on the page (Figure 7.9).

Figure 7.9. For a new page, first choose the number of photos you want to appear on the page from the Page Type pop-up menu.


iPhoto changes the design of the selected page, bringing photos down from the unplaced photo list to fill unused slots, or pushing photos back up to the unplaced photo list if you reduced the number of available photo slots.

3.
From the Page Design pop-up menu, choose a design (Figure 7.10).

Figure 7.10. Next, choose a design from the Page Design pop-up menu.


4.
Add, remove, or rearrange photos within the available slots.

5.
Repeat steps 2–4 until you have the page looking exactly as you want.

✓ Tips

  • Each theme offers different page design possibilities, ranging from none (Picture Book) to some that vary primarily by background color (Watercolor, Crayon). Spend some time looking at the page designs in each theme to get a feel for which ones you like the most.

  • If you want your cover image to appear inside the book as well, you must duplicate it (see “Duplicating Photos” in Chapter 4, “Editing Photos”).
