Use advanced font settings in iPhoto 5 books Apps
iPhoto 5 lets the user change and edit fonts for its standard book templates (through the gear-shaped Settings icon on the book toolbar). Unfortunately these settings are all or nothing -- your entire headline is 48pt Futura Bold or it isn't; no mixing of font sizes allowed.

However, OS X's standard type and spelling tools are available in a contextual menu. Just control-click on a selection of text. The standard font pallet is, obviously, under the 'Font' sub-menu. Pick your desired face and size, and just the selected text will be changed.

[robg adds: This trick works on any text in a book, obviously -- so if you have one extra-long caption, for instance, you could shorten it by changing just its font size.]

Use advanced font settings in iPhoto 5 books

I noticed this myself. The only concern I would have, is how the fonts are transferred to the printing company. If they are embedded in some way, then no problem. But you might run into problems if the service does not have those fonts installed.

iPhoto transfers everything as images to the book publisher, so it doesn't matter what font you use.

Pressing command-T will open the font toolbox as well.

iPhoto Printing problems
Authored by: dmans on Nov 18, '10 02:09:16PM

I have OS 10.6.5, iPhoto ver, 8.2.1, and a Epson Stylus CX4800. When I print a photo in 5x7 format, the result exceeds the size of the paper. I can't seem to correct the problem.
