How to apply the same background on every page of your photobook

Instead of flipping through your photo book and applying the same background page by page, there is an easier and much quicker way of doing this.  To make it easy to understand we've added a few screenshots below.

Step 1:  Apply a background to a page in your photobook.  Then right click on the page background and choose "Copy Background".

Step 2:  Right click on that same page background and choose "Paste special on all pages | Background" (or use the short-cut Ctrl+G).

Now all the pages (corresponding to the side of the spread you copied) will have the same background.  In this case all the pages on the left will be green.

Step 3:  Now you have one of two options.  You can either simply right click on the other page background of the same spread and choose "Paste special on all pages | Background" (img. bg-4) to make every single page in your album exactly the same  (img.5).   In this case all the pages will be green.  - OR - You can first copy the other side of the spread and apply that background throughout your album as explained in Step 1 and 2.  Every spread in your album will then look identical with the same backgrounds on the corresponding page sides in the spreads (img. bg-6).  In this example all the pages on the left will be green and all the pages on the right will be blue.

Team Building @ Gold Reef City

Early Morning on Wednesday the 19th of August, I asked my flu if we could have "THE TALK", I’m sure there and then, it knew it was time for us to part ways. There was no way I was gonna miss Gold Reef City, just the week before someone asked me “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” and I couldn’t answer them. I was ready to take on the roller coasters.


We’ve had so many team building sessions in the past but this was by far the best for me and for most of my colleagues. We were divided into 4 teams, Red, Blue, Green and Black for an Amazing Race type of challenge. I was in the Black Team, we wanted to win but we all decided that having fun was important too! We watched a 15 minute 4d movie, which was absolutely incredible but then, it was time for thrill ride number 1, the Tornado, just looking at it made my tummy turn and I unfortunately decided to sit it out, watching my team mates being tossed and turned around like they weighed nothing at all ma…
