Add, remove, and reorder book pages

You can add, delete, or reorder book pages. You can insert new pages anywhere in a book, except between the outside cover page and the inside cover.

Note: A book must have an even number of pages. If changing the number of pages creates an odd number of pages, Photos automatically adds or deletes a blank page to keep the page count at an even number.
