I bought 15 different iPhoto books (all 100 pages / ca 250 photos) the last 2 years without a problem.

Now the upload of a new book always fails.

Quid remedy (without reducing the number of photos)?

Thanks for support.

    Gee - it sound like you have a problem you need to fix - but unless I can find a local Psychic i really will need more information than it does not work and I need a quick remedy


    Like for example what does happen? what error messages do you get? what does the priview (

    Before ordering your book preview it using this method - - and save the resulting PDF for reference - the delivered book will match it.) show? what has changed recently? what else can you tel us that might help someone give you some valid assistance?

    A local Psychic? Really Larry?


    You seem to have a habit of picking on people who are not as clear as you would like them to be.

    Let me see if I can interpet for you.


    Farrays, here is requesting help with iPhoto 11 specifically iPhoto Books. Farrays seems to be asking for a resolution to his uploading problem, which is new to Farrays experience with iPhoto books.

    Yes, his uploading problem might be more precise to his situation, but Farrays is asking generally if anyone has encountered a similar problem or experience.


    Good Luck Farrays!

    Right - lots of people have encountered many different problems with uploading books ranging from missing photos to broken Internet connections to missing text and on and on and on - with no more information than "I have a problem - tell me how to fix it" it is frankly impossible for anyone but a psychic to assist


    I notice that while you took time to attack me you also offered no assistance to the OP - which of course you could not since it is not possible until they provide more information


    I also notice that you have yet to help a single person - once you actually help some people then maybe you have a right to jump in and complain about people who actually do help people and who try to extract enough information that it is possible to give valid help


    GO to another forum and spread poison pen letters around for a while - this forum is a place to help people

    Are you trying to order an XL book?  Can you create a PDF of of the book using the method in the link that Larry provided?  If the answers are yes and no respectively give this a try:


    1 - boot into  Safe Mode.

    2 - try to create a PDF file of your book and if you can save it.

    3 - order the book while still in the Safe Mode.
