Please try the following.

Please be informed that, Pages won't do a native export to JPEG. An easier way to get it to an image format is to export to PDF (File > Export… > PDF) or print to PDF (File > Print... > PDF > Save as PDF). Then open the PDF in Preview. Then you can File > Save As… and select the proper image format. It will then ask for resolution; 150 pixels/inch is usually pretty good.

Then, open the image with iphotos.

Or you can try the instructions in the link below.

Thank you.
