I have been trying to create a photo book in iphoto so that i can then send of for it and give it to my wife for our anniversary. I am able to start to create book and can add some photos but when i shut down mbp for the night and then want to continue the next day it says there are no photos in my book.
I have to start from scratch again. Why is it not saving?
I am shutting down iphoto correctly. This is another bit of software that has a serious glitch. imovie being the other.

Come on apple. I thought these machines were made for being creative.

Yes it is pretty much the same way as i have been doing it.

I choose the photos i want but i go through and flag the photos i am going to use. I then choose the book style and colour etc.

This then creates the book in the Projects menu in iphoto.

I then opt to use the flagged photos for my book.

This then lets me drag and drop the photos into my book.

I then add any text in the formatted boxes.
In effect i could complete my book in one session and order it but i have not got the time to do that.

When i then close iphoto by quitting and reopen at a later date my book is still in the Project menu but it says 'Stephen Book - 0 Pages'.
This is even if i have populated a few pages previously.

The book doesn't show up in the graphics but just the textured iphoto background.

I then have to start from the beginning again to choose book style etc.
QUOTE Thanks
