This is a movie for Mac users only, in particular Mac users who use iPhoto to organize their photos. If you want to bring your iPhoto photos into a Bookify book, here is what you will do. To show you this, I'm going to open a new book in Bookify. As you have seen me do before, I will go to the Apps menu and choose Bookify Online. I will click Get Started, I will choose a book size, I'll choose a starter style, and here, where Bookify asks where I would like to get the photos for this book, I'll choose From my computer.
I am going to click OK to dismiss that tip. And here's where things get a little different for iPhoto users. Instead of navigating in my file system to try to find the photos that I want to bring into Bookify, I am going to scroll all the way down in this blue column on the left until I see the Media category. If the Media category is not expanded like this, I will click the arrow to the left of Media, and then I will click Photos. This shows me my entire iPhoto library. I can expand this box so that I can see more of the thumbnails of photos in my iPhoto library.
Before I did this, I made an album in iPhoto, into which I put the photos that I want to use in this particular book. If I click on that album in this area, then I can see just those photos down here, and I can select the ones that I want to bring into this book. I will click on one and I'll hold the Command key on the Mac, the Ctrl key on a PC, and click on the other photos that I want to bring in. And when I've got all of the photos that I want, I will click Open. Those photos are now uploading to Blurb.
Once my iPhoto photos are uploaded, Bookify asks me, as it always does, no matter where I get my photos, how I want to design my book. Do I want Bookify to autoflow the photos onto pages for me, or will I drag-and-drop the photos myself? And everything from this point on is just as it is for any Bookify book. So, that's what you need to do if you're working on a Mac and you want to bring your iPhoto photos into your Bookify book.
