    Where do I find pages (program)??? Once I use it can I then save the results back in Iphoto when creating an album??

      You can get Pages in the Mac App store. It used to come as part of the iWork suite. You wouldn’t save you document back to iPhoto. Instead, you can save it as a Pages document.

    I have followed your directions but when I open pages, I don’t see the dialog box that you show too the right that say’s GRAPHIC to the right of my blank page. Do you know why I”m not seeing this? Or do you know how I enable it show it shows the Graphic dialog box so I can do the adjustments like your tutorial shows? Thanks JT

      That’s the Inspector. Click the Inspector button in the toolbar or choose View, Show Inspector to bring it up.

    Are there services that will turn your photo into a wall mountable semi professional look/version, with either a frame or some other thicker material to place on a wall. Can you just email and attach photo to the service. Would it be best to send a pages attachment in email to a service or a iphoto? Thanks Gary.

      There are many services that will do something like that. But I would send them a raw photo, not something with a digital frame around it.

    I am creating a book of photos using Pages. What is the best way to add captions?
    I find that the media transfer does not bring over the title (or any other mega data from iPhoto.) Currently I am creating the captions within Pages and then grouping the text with the photo. Alternatively I could copy them from the iPhoto app and paste them into Omnigraffle, adding the and borders there. Then moving this completed graphic to Pages. Your thoughts on the better way to go? Is the quality of the photo the same in both approaches? (Can you email me your response?)

      What does piping the photos through Omnigraffle accomplish? That’s a business planning tool. If you want to use Pages for this, then just bring them into Pages and use the tools there.
