Let's explore the process of creating a new book. It's pretty straightforward, but you need to make a bunch of decisions early on. To start, we'll invoke the Creative Book command. This can be done off of an event, an album, or a Smart Album. Start by selecting in your library the photos that you want to use. Ideally, you've placed them all into a single album and made an attempt at organizing those images. In this case, I've organized them from left to right and top to bottom in the relative order I want to use in the book.
You don't have to do this step, but it will dramatically save you a bunch of time when it comes to layout. If you'd like, you can also go ahead and select a photo to be the key photo and this will help with the cover and other elements. When ready, select the album and then choose all of the photos in the album by pressing Cmd+A. In the lower right corner, you can click the Create button to see a pop up menu of all of your options.
I'll then choose create a new Book. This will add the photos and open up the picture book interface. You now have several decisions to make.
