I didn't realize previewing a photo book was an option -- thanks for the suggestion! It's not at all obvious (in my opinion) that the PDF you see in the print preview is the same as what is forwarded to the book-printing subcontractor. It would be nice if Apple could add a "preview book" button in the Buy Book dialog.
Anyhow, I can see the extreme graininess in the preview as well, so I can see what I can do in Photoshop, maybe with gaussian blur, so that it will look better when we make our next copy of the book.
