Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Exporting to Web Pages

Exporting to Web Pages

Along with using Apple’s HomePage Web publishing tool, iPhoto can export selected images to a set of Web pages you can upload to your own Web server or to Web space at your Internet service provider.

To export photos to Web pages:

Select an album or the individual photos you wish to publish.

Choose Export from the File menu ().

iPhoto shows the Export Photos dialog.

If it’s not selected, click the Web Page tab (Figure 6.66).

Figure 6.66. Use the options in the Web Page tab of the Export Photos dialog to set how your photos will appear on the Web page.

Enter the title for your Web page.

Enter the desired number of columns and rows of photo thumbnails.

If desired, select a background color or image.

Select the maximum width and height for the thumbnails and the full-size images.

Select the Show title and Show comment checkboxes as desired.

Click Export, navigate to the desired destination folder (it’s best to create a new folder inside your user directory’s Sites folder), and click OK.

iPhoto exports the photos and builds the appropriate HTML files, naming everything for the enclosing folder.

Switch to the Finder, open the folder in which you saved your Web page, and double-click the HTML file to open it in your Web browser (Figure 6.67).

If necessary, upload the folder to your Web site using an FTP program like Interarchy (www.interarchy.com).
