As you go through and refine the layout in your book, you may want to adjust the cropping on a photo. Cropping is the act of throwing away parts of the image, generally done to to tighten up the area of focus. This is useful if you'd like to zoom in on the action. For example, on this page, I'd like to adjust the pictures a bit. I'll click on the photo here and I just want to get rid of some of the distracting things in the background and see a little bit more of the emotion. By zooming in there, I can magnify the image and then drag to recompose.
The same holds here. Let's just adjust this a bit and then pull that over. Now, when you hit the edge of the original photo, it will stop. If you keep dragging, you'll pull that image out and it will become removed. So, be careful as you drag and just release when you have the composition that you want. As you go through and work with images, it becomes very easy and depending upon the original photo, you may need to go ahead and makes some adjustments.
This just allows you to get better looking layout and really make some fine adjustments to the composition of the images. As you work, be prepared to go ahead and tighten things up a bit or loosen them up. It's totally up to you but this allows you to control what the focus area of the photo is.
