It’s easy to create a lasting keepsake of your photos. Just use iPhoto to create and order the book, and it’s delivered right to your door.

Create a photo book

    To select a single photo, click it. To select more than one photo, drag to enclose adjacent photos or hold down the Command key as you click photos that are not next to one another.

    You can select photos from anywhere in your iPhoto library.

  2. Click the Create button in the toolbar (A, shown below), and then choose Book from the pop-up menu that appears (B, below).

    In the bottom-left corner of the window, you can see the title, description, and dimensions for each theme as it appears in the center spot of the carousel. To get more details, click the Learn More arrow (shown below).

  4. Select the options for your book: type (hardcover, softcover, or wire bound), color, and size.
