Before you can order an iPhoto Book, you'll need an Apple Account. This means an Apple ID with a valid credit card or a gift card associated with it. This is pretty straightforward. You can do this by heading over to iTunes and setting it up there or going to the Apple Website. Once you have your account, make sure you're signed in. Under the Apple Menu, you can go to your System Preferences and head on over to iCloud where you could enter your Apple ID. This is where you could Sign In or Out of your account and make sure that everything is in there.
I'm going to go ahead and Close that, because I'm already Signed In and you'll know it's working if you click the Buy Book Button and it doesn't prompt you to enter in your logging credentials. Otherwise, just walk through the required steps and you can get set-up to place your purchase.
