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.

In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Tip 8: Choosing the right internet acecss for your lifestyle

Choosing the right internet access for your lifestyle

With so many ISPs out there these days, it's difficult to decide what type of access you need and which product will be cost effective and best suit your needs.
In the by-gone days of dial up our internet usage was measured by the amount of time we spent connected, and we all quickly got into the habit of plugging in the modem, quickly connecting, checking our mail doing what little surfing we needed and then before we ran up a huge bill, disconnected and unplugged the modem again - just to make sure.

Now days with the advent of broadband, we're no longer charged by the amount of time we spend online, but instead by the amount of data that we use up. while it's true that the longer you're connected the more likely you are to use more data, most people find it convenient and not too expensive to be connected all the time.
