A lot of times pictures are going to come from different places for your book project. One of those popular places is Facebook. You might be connected to friends or family or share photos on Facebook that you took on your phone on the go. The good news is that iPhoto can pull these pictures down into your iPhoto Library. Now remember, many of the pictures posted to Facebook have been reduced in size. So you'll have to use these in some of the smaller positions in your book layout. Don't try to put one of these images on the cover, but you can use them in a multi-image layout.
To access images from Facebook go ahead and click on the Facebook button in the Web category in the sidebar. This will take you to all of your albums and they'll load in. Now the first time you do this, it may take just a second for them to populate, but this allows you to go in and find your images. Let's zoom this up just a little bit. In this case, I do have some photos that were posted from this trip.
I could double-click on that album and you'll see that it loads in the rest of the pictures. Now it takes just a second the first time you do, because iPhoto only grabs them when you go into the album. When the status bar is no longer pending you'll know that the images are actually available. Now I could see everything in here and it now finished the download. So if I find an image that I'd like to add to my album, I could simply select those photos, holding down the Shift key to select a range, or use the Command Key to select non-contiguous pictures, and then simply drag them into the album you'd like to use.
