iPhoto: Five steps to great books, cards, and calendars

Take these five steps to make sure you get beautiful books, cards, and calendars every time you order!

  1. Take Great Pictures

    Great books, cards, and calendars start with great pictures. Contact the manufacturer of your camera to learn more about taking great photos. If you notice a yellow warning triangle on an image, see "iPhoto: What should I do if I get a low-resolution warning?".

  2. Use the Latest Version of iPhoto

    Stay ahead of the game with the latest version of iPhoto. Visit Apple Downloads to check for available software updates. See Updating Your Software to learn more about updating your software.

  3. Use iPhoto to Make Adjustments

    Let iPhoto help! Enhancing photos with third-party applications may lead to unexpected results in your printed order. See "Image Differences Between Books and Prints" to learn more about what to expect from your printed books, cards, and calendars.

  4. Preview Your Order

    See what the file you send to Apple will look like to avoid common issues such as missing images and cut-off text. Be sure to check the content of each page to make sure there is no need for last minute corrections. See "How to preview an order" to learn more.

  5. Submit Your Order

    Get your order delivered right to your doorstep. When you are satisfied with your book, card, or calendar, click the Buy button to complete your order. If you need to make any changes to your order, just cancel it within 90 minutes of submission by visiting the Order Status page, and resubmit a new order via iPhoto.
