In the next couple of movies, I want to highlight a few new features that you'll encounter in the Book module. I'm not going to talk about all of the in's and out's of building and designing books, yet I do want to highlight a few things. For starters, up in the Book Settings, if you click on your Paper Type, you'll notice that there is a new option, which is Standard. This is very similar to Premium Luster yet it's a bit more affordable. Next, what I want to do, just for demo purposes, is to highlight that I've selected a folder. I have a few images here, these are some portraits that I captured and I'm going to click Auto Layout, because what I want to highlight in this movie is how you can now add text to your book projects with more ease.
I'm going to go ahead and select a layout, this one here, and then I'll zoom in on it by clicking on this icon, which allows me to see these two pages. When I click on one of the pages, you'll notice that there's a new button. This is a welcome new button, it says Add Photo Text. To add text, all that we need to do is click and then we can go ahead and add some text, in this case I just typed out the word Caption. Previously, it was awkward to add text with your images, now it's incredible easy. But what about those situations where you have a page layout which includes text and an image? Let's change this layout to one of those options by clicking on this icon here.
I'll just choose an option where I have space for an image above and then text below. Again here, I can add that photo text, and I'll just type out the word Caption and then I can also add the text here for the photograph and I'll just type out the word Portrait. You can see how you can have these different fields. Now you can modify the text and the font and the color and all of those things, as we could previously, yet the one thing that I wanted to highlight here was this new ability to have these Add Photo Text buttons, which allow us to add text to our book projects with more ease.
