As you continue to design, you'll find that you may want to add more pages. Now, I'm not yet through the 20 pages that I have here, but I could tell that there are lots of photos in my book, so I'm going to add a few more pages. So as I design, I have got choices. This is a real simple task. I'll just click the Add Page button and you'll see that it put a page in. Now, In this case, it put it after the current selected page. So, by doing that I simply pushed the photos around.
Notice here that I added a page and it split the layout. So, if you're working and you decide that you don't want two pages to be facing, you could do that. There is however no undo for adding the page. It is easy to switch where a page falls, but be careful as you add pages. In this case, I split that layout and I'm okay with that, but if you want to add pages at the end, you might want to just flip to the last page in your book and choose to add them there.
Clicking the Add Page Button now, will just keep putting in pages and iPhoto is going to randomly select from the different templates putting those in. Don't worry, all of the options you have seen before for changing page layout are absolutely there, and if we take a look at the all pages view, we get a good idea of the progress of our book. I still have several photos left, but adding pages has quickly built this book out and gives me a good idea of how much further I have to go.
