Using Pages with iPhoto Book

Has anyone used Pages to create a page in an iPhoto Book and do you have any suggestions/tips?

Create the page and do a print to PDF using the send pdf to iPhoto option

  • PDF text pages in iPhoto books

    I'm not sure that this is a problem. I just want reassurance before I click the ORDER BOOK button and buy the iPhoto book I have created.
    I have imported PDF pages of text into the book, as I was able to get more control over the text layout that way. However, when I proof a PDF-text page, it looks more blurry and pixellated than standard, typed-on-the-page text, as if the resolution is not quite so high. It is perfectly legible, just a shade less sharp.
    Is this likely to be a resolution matter with my printer, or will the text be marginally more blurry in the printed book's PDF pages, too? If blurry is the answer, is there anything I can do before ordering the book to get the text looking just as sharp on the PDF pages as on the non-PDF, direct-to-page, text?
    Many thanks in advance.

    In PS under Edit->Color Settings Working Spaces set Grayscale to Dot Gain 20% and set the RGB menu to sRGB IEC61966-2.1. This is for future uses.
    Now open each file in PS CS2 from withing iPhoto, go to the Image->Mode menu and select RGB. Save the changes, Command+S, and that's it. The photo will then appear normally in iPhoto.
    Here's how to use Photoshop from within iPhoto:
    Using Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) as Your Editor of Choice in iPhoto.
    1 - select Photoshop as your editor of choice in iPhoto's General Preference Section's under the "Edit photo:" menu.
    2 - double click on the thumbnail in iPhoto to open it in Photoshop. When you're finished editing click on the Save button. If you immediately get the JPEG Options window make your selection (Baseline standard seems to be the most compatible jpeg format) and click on the OK button. Your done.
    3 - however, if you get the navigation window that indicates that PS wants to save it as a PS formatted file. You'll need to either select JPEG from the menu and save (top image) or click on the desktop in the Navigation window (bottom image) and save it to the desktop for importing as a new photo.
    This method will let iPhoto know that the photo has been editied and will update the thumbnail file to reflect the edit..
    NOTE: With Photoshop Elements 6 the Saving File preferences should be configured: "On First Save: Save Over Current File". Also I suggest the Maximize PSD File Compatabilty be set to Always.
    If you want to use both iPhoto's editing mode and PS without having to go back and forth to the Preference pane, once you've selected PS as your editor of choice, reset the Preferences back to "Open in main window". That will let you either edit in iPhoto (double click on the thumbnail) or in PS (Control-click on the thumbnail and seledt "Edit in external editor" in the Contextual menu). This way you get the best of both worlds
    2 - double click on the thumbnail in iPhoto to open it in Photoshop. When you're finished editing click on the Save button. If you immediately get the JPEG Options window make your selection (Baseline standard seems to be the most compatible jpeg format) and click on the OK button. Your done.

    If you ever do any scanning of B/W photos always scan as color.

    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Using Picassa with iPhoto

    I'm able to export my photos to Picasa using iPhoto but unfortunately, the comments from iPhoto don't show up in Picasa. It says in the Picasa webpage that those comments would be imported too.
    What am I doing wrong? Is there a setting button that I should be clicking?
    I'm using iPhoto 4.0.3.
    Thanks.

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. What is the workflow you're using in iPhoto to print and the printer settings? What happens when you export to the desktop (cropped to the size you want), open in Preview and print from there? If it's still grainy it may be a printer problem. By saving to preview do you mean saving as a PDF file and printing that? That would be pretty much the same. Still try opening the jpg with Preview and printing from there.
    Apple just released new HP drivers two days ago. You might try installing them and try again. HP Printer Driver 1.1.1.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back.

    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    Note: There's now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

  • Anyone help with Iphoto Book???

    New to Maverick & MacBook Air -- have just put together an Iphoto Book and want to make changes to a page -- anyone know what happens if you leave a frame blank -- will Apple print the frame and it looks ridiculous -- I want to put two small photos on my last page and it will only allow two large photos.  Any suggestions???

    anyone know what happens if you leave a frame blank -- will Apple print the frame and it looks ridiculous --
    Check that by making a preview of your  book - probably it will look ridiculous. See this link:  iPhoto, Aperture: Previewing an order in iPhoto or Aperture
    You can change the layout of any page to a different number of photo boxes; select the page in the pages viewer and open it in the layout panel. Change the number of photos to two with a textbox. You can insert an empty text into the text box. The additional textbox will make the photo boxes smaller.
    As to the missing photo, you will get ths warning:
    All boxes need to be filled - if you want to leave a box empty, you need to put some dummy picture there.

  • Can I use Pages with more than one user?

    Hi,
    I recently purchased Pages and want to be able to use it with two different users (one personal, one business). Is this possible? If so, how? I have no problem using it with the user I purchased it with, but my business user does not the option for Pages in the launchpad. How can I use Pages across users?
    Thank you,
    Britta

    Pages should be installed in the Applications folder at the top level of your hard drive to be available to all users of that Mac. By default, if you are logged in as an administrator, applications are installed in this folder. I haven't done it, but I understand that if you are not an administrator, applications are installed only in that user's applications folder.
    My installation of iWork is from the retail disc from more than three years ago but I did check for an app purchased from the Mac App Store in another user account on my Mac & had no problems finding it or launching it from Launchpad. Launchpad can be very cluttered &, unless you take the time to organize it, it can be very difficult to find a particular application. I would suggest trying to launch Pages from a Finder window or with a Spotlight search. And keep the Pages icon in the Dock for easy access the next time.

  • Using Pages with iOS. How do I reduce image file size when I create a document with embedded images?

    Hi,
    I have created an annual family news letter in Pages on my iPad which incorporates pictures of events, holidays, occasions etc etc. I've then gone to covert it to pdf with the intention of sharing it via email but get a warning message about the resulting file size (in this case 16Mb).
    Is there any way of reducing the file size - which is obviously being driven by the images?  The pics are being pulled in from the iPad photo library.
    Thanks Mike

    (1) you are asking about Pages for iOS in a forum dedicated to Pages for OSX.
    Most of us aren't using Pages for iOS so it would be more efficient to ask in the forum dedicated to iWork for iOS (at this time this discussion area isn't divided in three areas).
    https://discussions.apple.com/community/app_store/iwork_for_ios
    (2) As you understood why your file is huge, the answer is simple : reduce the size of your picture files before inserting them in Pages documents.
    Drop the unneeded areas, reduce the resolution in tools dedicated to image processing before inserting them.

  • Using Elements with iPhoto

    Dear Friends,
    What is the best way to help a Mac user who has downloaded images into iPhoto but wants to adjust them in Elements (or CS5)?
    He has asked if he can move an event over to work in Photoshop, or can he only open one image at a time?
    Is there  way to set iPhoto so that images automatically open in Photoshop?
    Thanks for your advice.

  • Problem with iPhoto Book and pictures

    Hello,
    When i create a photo book with iphoto, i havent got my photo in the real size. iphoto crop my photos.
    Other thing : is it possible to insert a 16/9 photo ? Choose the size of the picture : like square, panoramic ... ????
    Thanks for your help.

    You cannot change the actual sizes of the frames in the books. You can make some adjustments to the way your photo is displayed by double-clicking on it. You can resize the photo and move the photo within the frame, but that is about all you can do.
    For information about the iPhoto books, check out this website: http://www.lizcastro.com/iphotobookthemes/
    I hope this helps.

  • Using picasa with iphoto?

    I was considering downloading Picasa as an easy way to share photos with family. If I do so, will I be forced to chose between using one or the other for editing/viewing. Do they work well together?

    Yes you can upload to Picasa Web Albums directly from your Mac without using the Picasa app. Search on Google for a plug-in or use any of the usual methods of accessing your Library.
    There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:
    *For Users of 10.5 and later*
    You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Command-Click for selecting multiple pics.
    Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
    (Note the above illustration is not a Finder Window. It's the dialogue you get when you go File -> Open)
    You can access the Library from the New Message Window in Mail:
    Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
    *For users of 10.4 and later* ...
    Many internet sites such as Flickr and SmugMug have plug-ins for accessing the iPhoto Library. If the site you want to use doesn’t then some, one or any of these will also work:
    To upload to a site that does not have an iPhoto Export Plug-in the recommended way is to Select the Pic in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export and export the pic to the desktop, then upload from there. After the upload you can trash the pic on the desktop. It's only a copy and your original is safe in iPhoto.
    This is also true for emailing with Web-based services. However, if you're using Gmail you can use iPhoto2GMail
    If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
    If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
    *If you want to access the files with iPhoto not running*:
    For users of 10.6 and later:
    You can download a free Services component from MacOSXAutomation which will give you access to the iPhoto Library from your Services Menu. Using the Services Preference Pane you can even create a keyboard shortcut for it.
    For Users of 10.4 and later:
    Create a Media Browser using Automator (takes about 10 seconds) or use this free utility Karelia iMedia Browser
    Other options include:
    1. *Drag and Drop*: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
    2. *File -> Export*: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.
    3. *Show File*: Right- (or Control-) Click on a pic and in the resulting dialogue choose 'Show File'. A Finder window will pop open with the file already selected.
    I would not recommend using Picasa and iPhoto together. Picasa can access the iPhoto Library but uses an unsupported hack to do this. A change to the iPhoto Library or even a system update could easily break that link.

  • Need help with iphoto book.

    I made one iphoto book and it turned out great! However, now I am trying to make another one and I can not get the photos to 'stick' on the page. I watched the video over and over trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've been trying to figure this out for over a week. Please help!

    first - you are in edit mode - only one large page (maybe part of a second one too) on the screen?
    Try quitting and restarting your computer and see if that helps
    If not renew your iPhoto preference file -
    A good general step for strange issues is to renew the iPhoto preference file - quit iPhoto and go to "your user name" ==> library ==> preferences ==> com.apple.iPhoto.plist and trash it - launch iPhoto which creates a fresh new default preference file and reset any personal preferences you have changed and if you have moved the iPhoto library repoint to it. This may help
    This does not affect your photos or any database information (keywords, faces, places, ratings, etc) in any way - they are stored in the iPhoto library - the iPhoto preference file simply controls how iPhoto works - which is why renewing it is a good first step.

  • Desparte for help with Iphoto Book:

    My book will sometimes load almost the the end then just stop - I have even tried putting my whole library on another computer and it still wont load.
    I have been working on 3 books for several months and have successfully done over 12 books in the past.
    Can anyone help me!!

    I have exactly the same problem. I spoke at length with Apple tech people and worked through all their suggestions, including the safe mode one. No luck. Finally they told me my upload speed was too slow. My IP says they cannot provide anything faster. Had some success uploading a book through the 4G network using a hotspot via the cellphone, which provided a faster upload speed, and managed to get one book through. But now even with the faster upload speed it's not working again. This seems ridiculous given that on earlier version of iPhoto I've had no trouble whatsoever - it's just been with the most iPhoto 11 that the problem has arisen. I'm at my wits end.

  • Using Pages for e-books - am I doing something wrong here?

    Hi!
    I wrote 5 e-books with a total of around 1.500 pages in Pages. Great program
    Now I wanted to apply a template but in a mix og horror and frustration, I'm not sure if I got all this wrong.
    Can't I apply a template on a document already written? I bought a template with 10-12 different page setups, looking really nice.
    It's like I can only add new pages and move my text to them, page by page and I'm NOT going to do that with 1.500+ pages :s
    Am I doing this wrong? Is Pages the wrong choise for this?
    If not, what program would be the one to use for setting up my books?
    Thanks in advance for any feedback

    Pages templates do not work in this way, they have fairly poor templating and styling methods.
    If it is simply a matter of styling a lot of word processing you could open the previous work in Pages *Word Processing mode* and replace each style with an edited version of itself. Replacing colors is not so easy and layout extremely difficult.
    Pages does not have the efficient keyboard methods of applying styles, that more capable DTP packages have. So applying the styles is tedious.
    Even with styling unless you had been extremely careful dividing your paragraph, character and list styles you will likely have a lot of manual work to do. Pages does not have a method that I know of to show unstyled text that would drop through the cracks of any changes.
    If you did the previous work in *Layout mode*, you may as well start from scratch, there would be too much manual adjustments etc to make it worthwhile.
    To get the sophisticated updating of firstly styled text, you would need a DTP program that allows direct exchange of styles. To have the ability to change layout you really would need Adobe InDesign.

    Dreamweaver CS6 is not retina ready. Dreamweaver CS6 Cloud I believe was patched at 12.1 for this. However, I do not believe Adobe sees this as a patch but rather as a new feature thus if you are using Dreamweaver CS6 you will not get this release until Dreamweaver CS6.5 or CS7.
