    So I completed a book, which took a rather long time, and when i press the [Buy Book] button, it says i have drop boxes with no pictures in them and that i must fill those in before i buy the book. I've checked the book SEVERAL times and cannot find any instances of this happening. I restarted iPhoto as well as my computer and this still persists. Any help? It's really frustrating.

    I haven't tried creating a book but watched a training video on it and it was very cool. I do remember that they had boxes on the inside jacket cover. Did you put pics in those? Maybe it's an obscure place like that.

    Sorry I can't be more help. Hopefully somebody that has done it will chime in.

    I created a book for my GF on our one year anni and although I was impressed with the simplicity of creating the book, I wasn't too impressed with the quality of the book after it was printed. It felt kind of...umm..."cheaply put together" in my opinion. For a quick solution in putting a photo album together, it'll work fine. If it was for something special like a wedding album, I wouldn't really recommend it.

    (I work with graphics and printing so my standards are a bit higher. :) )

    Weird, I've had nothing but good experiences with iPhoto products (books, calendars & cards). -and I know my CMYKs from my RGBs. I guess ymmv.

    Anyway, I do wish this particular warning would point out exactly where the missing photos are.

    You want to save a PDF of the book then post it here for us to look over? Maybe one of us can find your Waldo.
