    I've made a number of book/albums within the iPhoto application and i'll be honest i think they look quite good, especially for when showing friends/family etc.
    Had :apple: TV a few days now and noticed that these books don't sync - so i can watch them on my 24" iMac but not on my tv. Anyone know anyway round this?

    Apple TV only plays back albums and slideshows from iPhoto.

    On your Apple TV, make sure your Sources is set to the Apple TV and not your Mac. Also, make sure you've turned on Photo Syncing in iTunes and that it's looking for lists from iPhoto. It also works with Aperture, if you happen to have it.

    I may not have been too clear on my problem. ( if there is one) :apple: TV does play all my photos be it library or individual folders that i have made. In iPhoto under the folders i've made are books that i've made (the ones that you can actually buy for £20 in the UK). Is it possible to view these with :apple: tv?

    Thanks

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Er, possibly, i'm new to the mac way so if i've said something stupid forgive me. I mean the application where you put your photos in a make-believe album, add some music and press a play button, then the pages turn over and in my opinion it looks really nice, good for showing others, hence why i asked if i could show peolpe over a large tv rather that my mac.:confused:

    Thats called a slideshow. You can change slideshow settings on the AppleTV with images you have synced.

    im just trying to make sure i understood what you meant. when you mentioned a book and a price i thought perhaps you were referring to those photo albums that you could drop your pics in and have them printed by apple.
