Video: Exporting albums to a drive or disc

In the last movie, I showed you how to share an album that you created in the Albums panel in the Organizer as an interactive online gallery by uploading it to the Photoshop Showcase Web site. There are other ways to share a gallery like that. You can burn it to a CD, or DVD, or export it to your hard drive to play for friends and family on your own computer screen. I am starting with an album that I created earlier in this chapter. I am going to right-click on that album, and from here I could choose to edit the album, rename the album, even delete it, but what I want to do is come down here and choose to export this album to a CD, or DVD.

Exporting albums to a drive or disc

In the last movie, I showed you how to share an album that you created in the Albums panel in the Organizer as an interactive online gallery by uploading it to the Photoshop Showcase Web site. There are other ways to share a gallery like that. You can burn it to a CD, or DVD, or export it to your hard drive to play for friends and family on your own computer screen. I am starting with an album that I created earlier in this chapter. I am going to right-click on that album, and from here I could choose to edit the album, rename the album, even delete it, but what I want to do is come down here and choose to export this album to a CD, or DVD.

Now, if you are a Windows user, you will have this option. If you are a Mac user, you will not have this option. So if you are a Mac user, what you are going to do is export your album to your hard disk, and then if you want to burn it to a CD, or DVD, you can do that using the regular burning commands in the OS X Finder, and I will show you how to export to a hard disk in just a moment. But for Windows users, choose Export to CD/DVD, and that opens a window where you can choose an interactive gallery template. I am going to go with the one that I'd selected in the last movie, the Seasons template, and I'd used the options to change the background for that template to a winter background.

Over here in the Edit Album column, you can see that it's set to Export to CD or DVD, and all I need to do is come down to the Drive menu, and choose to drive that contains my CD or DVD. In the Label field, I can give that CD or DVD a label, which will appear on the viewer's computer when he or she inserts the CD or DVD for playing. I'll leave the Label set to Carriages, and I'll click OK, and that sets the Organizer to writing my slideshow to my disk.

By the way, this disk will be able to be played on computers, but it won't play on most DVD players in your home or your automobile. If your viewers are on Windows, when they insert this disk in their computers, it should start playing automatically, but if it doesn't, or if your viewers are on a Mac, they may be able to get the slideshow playing from the disk by navigating to the index.html file on the disk, and clicking that. My disk is now finished burning. If I want to verify that burn, I would click Verify, otherwise, I will just click Don't Verify, and I'll click OK.

So that's how to share your interactive gallery to a disk. Now, there is another way to share your interactive gallery, and that is to export it to a hard drive; either your main computer drive, or an external drive. And again, Mac users, this is what you'll have to do if you want to burn a disk to a CD or DVD. Again, you'll have to export to hard disk, and then from there, use the OS X Finder to burn your gallery to a DVD or CD. So, how do you export to hard disk? Again, I am going to right-click my album in the Album's panel, and this time I'll choose Export to Hard Disk.

Again, I am taken to this window where I see the interactive gallery template, and over in the column on the right, Export to Hard Disk is selected. Here I am going to create a folder to contain all of the files for my gallery, because it's not going to be a single file, it will be a Flash file, some image files, and more. I'll name this folder Brugge Carriage Gallery, and then I'll browse to where I want to locate that folder.

I am going to put it on my Desktop, and click OK. And finally, I'll click OK to export this gallery to that folder on my Desktop. Let's go out and see it there. Here's my new folder. I'll open it, and you can see it contains quite a few different files. In order to play the gallery on my computer, I'll double-click the index -- that's the index.html file, if you could see the suffix for it -- and that will launch a Web browser on my computer, and play my gallery for me locally.

So now I can play the album from my computer even if I am not online, and share it with friends and family that way. Or if you happen to have your own Web site, and you know how to add new content to that Web site, you have a copy of the slideshow on your Desktop that you could possibly upload to your Web site to include there.
