Creating a PDF for print from iPhoto

How to get your Photobook/Calendar/Card out of iPhoto for printing
To create the correctly imposed PDF in iPhoto: 

Step 1: Remove Page Numbering (In iPhoto - deselect Page Number in Settings)

Step 2: Right-click or (ctrl)-click in the grey area outside the actual book in iPhoto and select "Print Book As PDF"


Another small window will pop-up while the pdf is being generated.


Once it's done you will have a PDF file of your book with the cover imposed front & back and then your inside pages.  This PDF should be uploaded on the RapidStudio website.


NOTE:  If you have designed your dust cover (the cover with the flaps on the front and back cover that fold over the cover of your book), and you would like it printed, you need to choose the "dust cover" option when doing your quote.  If the dust cover option is not chosen, the cover with the flaps will be ignored and you will receive a normal hard cover photo book (with a personalised cover).

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 th

To me, 2020 has been more about consolidating memories than creating them. With lockdown and the threat of a global pandemic that posed particular threat to the elderly, in March, I found myself holding those in my home a little closer, anxiously worried and on the phone daily to loved ones outside my home and on my computer a lot, scrolling through old family holiday pics and reliving the wonderful memories shared. Like everyone, we’ve missed the family getaways and braai gatherings in 2020, but I’ve really valued consolidating. Nothing like a threat to remind us
