You can take the greatest photos ever captured, but it probably won't mean much until you get them out there where people can see them. In this workshop from digital imaging guru Tim Grey, discover how to use Adobe Lightroom 4 to share your images with the world. Tim begins with the basics, like selecting images for sharing and working with collections, watermarks, and identity plates. Then he shows how to publish your photos to the web, whether you want to upload images to Facebook or Flickr or create your own web galleries. Tim also covers creating photo books and slideshows and offers advice on getting the highest-quality prints.
Once you've created a Web Gallery that you're happy with, you can upload that gallery to your website through Lightroom automatically. However, you can also export the files locally to your computer. This can be helpful for example, if you need to send those files to someone else, so that they can update your website for you. Or, if you want to be able to view the gallery photos offline. For example, you could put the gallery files onto a laptop, and share them with others, allow them to browse that gallery without necessarily being connected to the Internet. Let's take a look at how we can export those files, It's very, very easy. I've created a gallery that I'm happy with, it's all configured and ready to go, so at the bottom of the right panel in the Web Module, I'll click the Export button.
That will bring up a dialog that allows me to navigate to the location where I would like to save my gallery, as well as to type a name. I'll go ahead and call this Ice in Alaska, since that's the title of my gallery. And then I'll click the Save button, and Lightroom will process all of the images and generate the webpages, and save them locally on the hard drive. In this case, the gallery files have been saved to my desktop, so I'll go ahead and minimize Lightroom, and you can see on my desktop I have an Ice in Alaska folder.
I can double-click on that folder, and we'll see that we have an index file, that's the main page for the website, as well as a content folder with the large images as well as the thumbnail images. For example, I can browse the Gallery by simply double-clicking the Index file, and that will bring up that Web Gallery in my browser. So, for situations where you're not able to upload the Gallery files directly to your website. You can very easily Export those files, either to view offline, or to have someone else post it to a website for you.
