    You can "adjust" a photo frame or text box size on a page with the following key combinations:

     

    Command + Option +⬆arrow:  increase frame height.

    Command + Option +⬇arrow:  decrease frame height.

    Command + Option + ➜ arrow:  increase frame width.

    Command + Option + ⬅ arrow:  decrease frame width.

     

    To adjust its position on the page use these key combinations:

     

    Command + Control + ➜ arrow:  move frame to right.

    Command + Control + ⬅  arrow:  move frame to left.

    Command + Control + ⬆ arrow:  rotate frame counter clockwise.

    Command + Control + ⬇ arrow:  rotate frame clockwise.

     

    You can conver the standard frame (on the left) to this one (on the right)

    Are you referrering to the justification of the text within the text box?

     

    As in - like this one -  a straight left margin and raggedy right edge? (That's left-justified

     

    Or with a straight right margin and a raggedy left edge? (Right-justified)

     

    Straight edge both sides (full)

     

    Raggedy edge both sides (centred)

     

    ?

    What you expect is interesting autobiography and thank you for that. If you want to share your insights with Apple then use the feedback mechanism as they aren't reading this.

     

    iPhoto Menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback

     

    They'll be delighted to hear from you.

     

    If you want right-justified text one trick is to write the caption in TextEdit or a word processor, including the justification, and then copy and paste it into the text box.

    You can always create your own custom page if you have Pages or a 3rd party image editor that supports layers.  Just follow this tutorial: iP11 - Creating a Custom Page, with the Theme's Background for an iPhoto Book.

    The TextEdit trick works here.

     

    We're all just users exactly like you. We have access to the same feedback mechanism you have.
