Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a book, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- A great way to capture memories…from a once in a lifetime trip, or some other…special event, is to make a book.…And as you may suspect, it's pretty easy in Photos for OS X.…In fact, if you've done some of the other projects,…such as greeting card, you'll feel very comfortable…here in this interface.…I'm gonna walk you through it,…just to make sure that we all are…ready and able to make a book ourselves.…So I'm in an album right now, and let me just go back.…
I've created an album for my book.…I like to do this.…We've talked about this before.…The reason being, I like to bring in the images…and look at them, kind of see them together,…move things around, take things out, all of that.…And then, once I feel like,…"Ok, here's the content I wanna use.…"Time to make a book."…I'm just gonna select them all.…In this case I just did "command", "A".…And we go up here, and we choose "Book".…
You have your basic styles of books here.…Basic sizes and prices, all that.…I'm gonna go with a little book.…So go with the "8 x 6"; I'll select that.…
