Publishing Blog Photos with iWeb


Whereas a photo page looks much as you'd expect a Web photo album to look, a photo blog features a single photo per chronological entry.

To publish a photo to an iWeb blog:

1.

Select a photo, and from the Share menu's Send to iWeb submenu, choose Blog.

iPhoto launches iWeb and creates a new blog entry (Figure 5.33).

2.

Edit the various text blocks for the blog post title and description as desired (click a block twice to edit it).

iWeb automatically updates the main page for your blog as well (Figure 5.34).

3.

From the File menu choose either Publish to .Mac or Publish to Folder.

If you choose Publish to .Mac, iPhoto uploads your pictures to your iDisk, and, when it's done, shows a dialog that tells you the URL for your page and offers to let you visit the page or announce it.

If you choose Publish to Folder, iWeb asks for a location and saves the HTML and image files to the folder, which you can then upload manually to any Web server.

Tips

  • For more details about iWeb, see Steven Sande's Take Control of iWeb at www.takecontrolbooks.com/iweb.html.

  • You can drag photos from iPhoto into various spots in iWeb, either into a page for free-placement of the photo, or into one of iWeb's image placeholders.

  • Double-click a photo in iWeb to resize it within its placeholder.
