    Facebook pics to iphoto for photo book
    I am making a photo book and want to use pics from my daughter's Facebook albums. I right-click and save, but the resolution is pitiful - too low to use in the book. Any suggestions?

    Get your daughter to send you the original pics. Most pics seen on the web are optimized for screen viewing (72dpi), which is about 1/4th the resolution they'd need to be to work in a book at the same size (300dpi minimum).

    I think you answered your own question.
    The resolution is too low.

    Right click the pictures and hit add to iPhoto Library. It worked for me when making a photo book and the resolution was fantastic.

    You could select a book that has more smaller picture frames in it to make the pictures look better, or like chas_m says get her to send you the originals.
