I think this is really a documentation defect. The "getting started" portion should prominently feature "If there are no images in the Journal, 11 will be added by XoPhoto so that you will have some practice images to select, reorder, and delete as you work through the mini tutorial (which needs to become part of the Help system).

I didn't want the first time experience of using XoPhoto to be an empty screen. If there are already 10 or more images in the Journal, this behavior of putting 11 images into the Journal does not occur.

I'm not convinced that documentation will have any impact on this problem in deployments, since it is unlikely that a child will read the documentation first.

Perhaps in order to guarantee 11 images being present you might select 11 interesting images and ship them with the activity?

I believe that the images loaded into the journal are the ones that I down loaded from flickr, and placed in the images folder of the XoPhoto bundle. But it occurs to me that I should change the titles loaded into the journal metadata to something that is localizable (ie _("Demo_tutorial_practice_images").

And yes, I'm not sure that the ones I selected are very interesting. I could use some ideas there.

Test for some images at first invocation is followed by a confirmation alert asking whether or not to load a few practice pictures added to version 9.
Still could probably improve the contents of the pictures so installed to some showing how to use XoPhoto
