Using the Photo Book Assistant When Time is of the Essence

By creating an individually designed photo book you can keep all your favourite memories in one place, which you can look back on time and time again. If you don’t have the time to design a photo book, then you could use the Photo Book Assistant. You will be done in no time at all and you won’t have to redesign each individual page.

Start by selecting and sorting through images you would like to put into a folder on your Mac. The next step is to open a new photo book on the ifolor Designer and to tick the small box next to "Project assistant" on the photo book selection menu, which will enable you to use the Photo Book Assistant. There will be a range of templates to choose from and you can then choose the relevant template. After selecting your pictures and the number of pages, click on “Finish project” and voilà your Photo Book is finished. When using the Project Assistant there is no need to manually paste the pictures onto the template as it will fill it in for you. If you still have enough time you can then add some personal touches. Add text by choosing from a wide range of speech bubbles and frame designs. There is also a selection of clip art. Make sure to put your favourite picture onto the cover of your individually designed photo book.

A Wide Range of Designs to Choose from To Create Your Own Individual Photo Book

Have you had a look through the different designs, but you still haven’t found the perfect one? In this case then you may have only been looking at the default selection. On the toolbar you will see “Frames, Backgrounds and Clip Art” and this is where you can find a wide range of other design options. If you find a suitable design you can add the desired design directly to your collection. We will show you how to do this via the guide and in the video tutorial for advanced users.

Using Photos From iCloud and Other Saved Locations

The photos from your last party or holiday are not in a folder on your desktop, but they are either on iCloud or in another saved location. You don’t need to browse through the folder or platform tediously to gather the photos you would like to use. By using the ifolor Designer you can save yourself a lot of time as it will access your online saved folders. All you have to do is click on “My images” and then on the album you would like to use.

Creating Multiple Pages with Just One Click

You do not have to edit each image individually if you would like to transfer a specific frame, background or page template so that you have a uniform look in your individually designed photo book. To use the same design throughout your photo book, you can simply just left click on the corresponding frame, background or page template. Then it is up to you to decide whether this design should be applied to all the pages in the book or only to some of them.

Using Blank Spaces

A photo book should not appear too cluttered. In order to make your photos stand out, you can deliberately leave some blank spaces. By doing so you can make your favourite snapshots stand out. In addition, you can add some finishing touches by adding some texts or souvenirs such as tickets. If you would like to create some blank spaces you will only need to remove placeholders or insert blank textboxes.


Before placing your order you can have a look at the finished product via the preview option. You can view your finished product by clicking in the right-hand corner on “preview”. By clicking on it you can decide if the photo book is ready to be ordered, printed and bound.
