About This Class

Everyone needs text in a photo book - even if it's just to add a snazzy title to the font cover.

In this class I show you how the text editor works - in some software it works well, in others it might be slow and clunky, you really have to experiment a bit with your software to make a judgement on whether to persevere, or to look for a better software app...

Here we look at how to use text in a book, how to add text boxes so text can be added to any spot on the page either by typing in the copy yourself or by copying it from another source, like an MS Word document, , how to add captions, how to set text styles (to speed up your text formatting),  and how to add headers, footers and page numbers. All essential features of a good book.
