with a full-color photo book.

00:00:07,607 --> 00:00:09,976
First select the photos that you want to use

5
00:00:09,976 --> 00:00:13,179
or choose an event
and then click the "Book" button.

6
00:00:14,114 --> 00:00:17,283
Next choose the size and type
of book that you want,

7
00:00:17,283 --> 00:00:19,619
hardcover, softcover

8
00:00:19,619 --> 00:00:21,688
or wire bound softcover.

9
00:00:21,688 --> 00:00:24,424
Will choose hardcover.

10
00:00:24,457 --> 00:00:26,559
iPhoto provides a number of different themes

11
00:00:26,559 --> 00:00:28,395
you can choose from to get started,

12
00:00:28,395 --> 00:00:30,263
but don't worry, you can switch themes

13
00:00:30,296 --> 00:00:32,799
any time if you change your mind.

14
00:00:33,266 --> 00:00:35,135
With a picture book theme selected

15
00:00:35,135 --> 00:00:38,805
click "Choose" and iPhoto
begins the book for you.

16
00:00:38,805 --> 00:00:40,974
The photo browser at the top shows thumbnails

17
00:00:40,974 --> 00:00:44,411
of all the photos that you selected.

18
00:00:44,411 --> 00:00:46,579
To add a photo for the cover of the book

19
00:00:46,579 --> 00:00:50,483
just drag a thumbnail to the gray box.

20
00:00:50,483 --> 00:00:53,119
The check marks that appear
on the bottom of the thumbnails

21
00:00:53,119 --> 00:00:55,955
show that you've used this photo
somewhere else in the book,

22
00:00:55,955 --> 00:00:59,192
but you can add the same photo
as many times as you like.

23
00:00:59,192 --> 00:01:01,694
To modify a photo, click it

24
00:01:01,694 --> 00:01:04,330
and then drag the slider to resize the photo

25
00:01:04,330 --> 00:01:08,568
and use the hand tool
to position the photo in the frame.

26
00:01:08,568 --> 00:01:12,572
For the book title click
the placeholder text and type over.

27
00:01:12,572 --> 00:01:14,507
You can replace the rest of the placeholder text

28
00:01:14,507 --> 00:01:18,411
throughout the book the same way.

29
00:01:18,411 --> 00:01:20,480
If you want, iPhoto can do the work

30
00:01:20,480 --> 00:01:22,649
of filling your pages for you.

31
00:01:22,649 --> 00:01:24,551
Just click the "Autoflow" button

32
00:01:24,551 --> 00:01:27,821
and the pages fill with photos
from the photo browser.

33
00:01:27,821 --> 00:01:29,823
You can always change the photos on the page

34
00:01:29,823 --> 00:01:32,325
by dragging them to different locations.

35
00:01:32,325 --> 00:01:34,761
You can also print pages in a different order,

36
00:01:34,761 --> 00:01:37,063
in the photo browser at the top of the page,

37
00:01:37,063 --> 00:01:39,599
be sure that the page view icon is selected

38
00:01:39,599 --> 00:01:44,437
and then drag individual pages to a new place.

39
00:01:44,437 --> 00:01:47,073
There are other ways
to customize your book too.

40
00:01:47,073 --> 00:01:49,742
Let's say you want to change
the number of photos on a page,

41
00:01:50,410 --> 00:01:53,313
select a page and click "Layout"

42
00:01:53,313 --> 00:01:56,816
then choose a layout
with a number of photos that you want

43
00:01:56,816 --> 00:01:59,652
and you can also change your theme in any time.

44
00:01:59,652 --> 00:02:02,288
Click the "Themes" button

45
00:02:02,288 --> 00:02:06,860
and choose again from the sheet that appears.

46
00:02:06,860 --> 00:02:08,628
iPhoto will reformat your book

47
00:02:08,628 --> 00:02:12,065
using the same photographs in the new theme.

48
00:02:12,065 --> 00:02:14,601
If your book includes photos from your travels

49
00:02:14,601 --> 00:02:16,436
you may want to add a custom travel map

50
00:02:16,436 --> 00:02:18,805
that shows the places you've visited.

51
00:02:18,805 --> 00:02:21,741
Select a page where you'd like your map to be

52
00:02:21,741 --> 00:02:23,209
and then click the "Layout" button

53
00:02:23,209 --> 00:02:26,012
and choose "Map" from the pop-up menu.

54
00:02:26,012 --> 00:02:28,214
With the location information of your photos

55
00:02:28,248 --> 00:02:31,217
the map will show just where you
were when the photos were taken.

56
00:02:32,285 --> 00:02:34,821
Even if your photos don't have location data

57
00:02:34,821 --> 00:02:38,324
you can still use iPhoto
to draw custom map for you.

58
00:02:38,324 --> 00:02:40,093
Just add your map to a book page

59
00:02:40,093 --> 00:02:42,262
and then click on it,

60
00:02:42,262 --> 00:02:44,764
the map options pane then appears.

61
00:02:44,764 --> 00:02:46,332
To add a location

62
00:02:46,332 --> 00:02:48,067
click the plus button and type in the name

63
00:02:48,067 --> 00:02:50,203
of the place that you travel.

64
00:02:50,203 --> 00:02:52,572
You may have been to more than just one place,

65
00:02:52,572 --> 00:02:55,808
so be sure to add the other locations as well.

66
00:02:59,479 --> 00:03:02,949
Next click the "Show lines" checkbox.

67
00:03:02,949 --> 00:03:04,817
iPhoto will then create a reference map

68
00:03:04,817 --> 00:03:08,521
with arrows to show the places
that you've travel.

69
00:03:08,521 --> 00:03:10,323
If your locations are out of order

70
00:03:10,323 --> 00:03:12,325
you can easily drag them in the options pane

71
00:03:12,325 --> 00:03:14,027
to change the sequence

72
00:03:14,027 --> 00:03:17,363
and iPhoto will change the arrows accordingly.

73
00:03:17,363 --> 00:03:19,165
You can use the zoom magnifier

74
00:03:19,165 --> 00:03:23,303
and reposition tools to get the map just right.

75
00:03:23,303 --> 00:03:26,639
When you book is finished
and is exactly how you want it,

76
00:03:26,639 --> 00:03:28,341
click the "Buy" button.

77
00:03:28,374 --> 00:03:30,143
Your book will be delivered to your door.

78
00:03:30,977 --> 00:03:33,246
iPhoto makes it easy to turn your photographs

79
00:03:33,246 --> 00:03:35,148
into a custom, high quality book

80
00:03:35,181 --> 00:03:37,450
that you can keep forever.
