Build a HomePage Photo Album and Publish it to the Web

If you signed up for a .Mac account (as explained in Section 2), iPhoto can automatically create and publish a web site of your selected photos and store it on Apple's Internet servers. It's really incredible.

1.
Select an album or a group of photos within an album. The order in which photos appear in the album determines the order in which they appear on the web page that iPhoto creates. To rearrange photos, drag them into new positions in the album.

2.
In iPhoto's Organize toolbar, click the “HomePage” button. Your Mac will connect to the Internet and open the “Publish HomePage” window, as shown below. Your selected images are displayed on a web page template that you can customize.

All HomePage text is editable.

3.
Click one of the thumbnail images in the Themes drawer to choose an appearance for your HomePage background and photo frames.

4.
To edit the text, select the existing title and captions on the page (press-and-drag over the text) and retype. If you had previously given titles to photos in iPhoto, those titles appear as captions in your HomePage layout.

5.
From the “Publish to” pop-up menu at the bottom of the window (shown above), select your .Mac account name.

6.
Click the “Publish” button. After the files have been transferred to Apple's .Mac server, a notice will appear telling you the web address of your new web site; this notice has a button called “Visit Page Now.” Click it to open your brand-new HomePage photo album.
