I have completely finished my book in iPhoto, and when I click on "Buy Book," it says ... "Your book seems to have frames on one or more pages that do not contain photos. You must either change the layout of those pages or place photos in those frames before you can proceed with this book."


I have been through the book 10 times, and I don't see any missing photos. Any thoughts on things I can try?

    Generally this is a full poage photo hiding a missing photo in the background page layout - check every full page photo for this

    I have just submitted a similar query to LyonKC and see your reply to him which I dont fully understand.  How do I check for "missing photo in the background"?  Unlike LyonKC my iPhoto brings up the same page where it says there is a photo missing & I must add a photo or change the layout.  I have changed the 3 photos and even changed layout to one photo but still get same message.  Do hope you can help me LarryHN

    one option for the pa=ge backgroun is to have a photo as the background and then you have photos in the foreground over it - if you have this with no photo in the background you muse either change the page background to one with a color or place a photo there

    If you have a one photo per page layout check to make sure it's not like this one:



    These are easy to miss.
