Taking control with options

Before we begin layout in earnest, there's two quick options to check. One of them is a big time saver and the other, personal decision. Clicking over to the Options Tab, at the bottom is the Book Settings button. I do recommend that you use the Auto Layout Pages option. This means that as you start to drop in pictures, the page layout will adjust a bit to match the photo. If you have a horizontal, or landscape picture, or a portrait picture that's more vertical, the layout will adjust so it doesn't perform an irregular crop; I think this is a good thing and it will speed up the layout process.

The other option that you have is putting an Apple logo at the end of the book. If we go to the back cover, when the book is printed it will put an Apple logo on the cover itself. Generally speaking, I turned that off. Let's just do that and click OK. This is just a matter of personal decisions. I don't mind the logo, but I generally prefer minimal, clean designs. And as such, I don't put logos in, just like I don't wear shirts with logos, although, some of you do. It doesn't matter.

If you want the logo, leave it checked. If you want it off, turn it off.
