Web page export tips

  • iPhoto doesn't let you add a line of descriptive text to your thumbnail page, as it does when using HomePage. If you know a little HTML, you can easily add text to that page using a text editor.

  • If you select a background image instead of a color, iPhoto tiles the image under the thumbnails. That can work well if the image is large and light colored, but avoid using small, dark background images—they make for a cluttered presentation.

  • Assuming you have a permanent Internet connection (like DSL or a cable modem) and an IP address that never changes, you can make your pages available on your Mac by turning on Personal Web Sharing in the Sharing preference pane. If you have a permanent Internet connection but not a static IP address, you can learn more about how to work around this limitation with dynamic DNS. See www.technopagan.org/dynamic/ for more information.

  • If you feel as though you're wasting a huge amount of time fussing with Web pages exported from iPhoto, I encourage you to check out Apple's .Mac service (www.mac.com). The HomePage tool really is the easiest way to present a slideshow, and it's one of the best user-experiences for viewing slideshows as well.
