Video: Uploading HTML galleries

We are now just about ready to take our final step and to upload this gallery to our server. Yet before we actually dial in our upload settings and go through the process of uploading. What you'll want to do is click on this button on the bottom left-hand corner, it's Preview in Browser. What this will do is it will open up a local version of this in your web browser. In other words, this won't upload it to the web. But it will show you these files, just pulling them off of your hard drive here, and show you them inside of this web browser. We could then click through this and see how this functions.

Uploading HTML galleries

We are now just about ready to take our final step and to upload this gallery to our server. Yet before we actually dial in our upload settings and go through the process of uploading. What you'll want to do is click on this button on the bottom left-hand corner, it's Preview in Browser. What this will do is it will open up a local version of this in your web browser. In other words, this won't upload it to the web. But it will show you these files, just pulling them off of your hard drive here, and show you them inside of this web browser. We could then click through this and see how this functions.

So just take a look at how this can Gallery actually is going to look, inside of a browser. Well seeing it here as far as a demo goes I think it looks fine, so I'll close this window, and go back to my Upload settings. What we need to do is to dial in some Custom settings here, so we'll go to this menu and choose Edit. In this dialogue, we're looking to enter in some values here. First of all, is the Server name. In this case I'm uploading it to chrisorwig.com. Next, my username, this is a username that I got from the host company.

And then finally, my password. Go ahead and enter in those values. The next thing that you going to want to do is, is to click on Browse. This will tell you a couple of things. One it will tell you if you entered in the correct information, and two what it will do, is it will take you to your server. You want to go to the correct folder. In this case the folder is HTML. Depending on your host company, this can be either public underscore html or public htt docx. Again the server path, this will be given to you by your host company and will vary based on who your hosting company actually is.

Now that we've dialed in all of this, I'm going to go ahead and click to Store my password in preset. This will remember this password inside of Lightroom, and then I'll go ahead and click OK. Next I need to determine a subfolder. Where do I want his to exist? How do I want someone to navigate to this site? In other words crisorwig.com/what. In this case I'll go ahead and just name this demo-color and then I'm going to click on Upload. This will then upload these files to the server in this folder.

While this is taking place, while it's exporting and uploading this I'm going to go to my black and white folder. This is the same set of images but now in black and white. I want to put these in a folder demo-bw for black and white and then click Upload. And again the great thing about this upload feature, is that all of this is going to happen behind the scenes. You can do whatever else you need to do in Lightroom. It doesn't hang up Lightroom. It just happens in the background.

Well, next, what I need to do, is, I need to open up my browser. And in my browser, I'm going to go ahead and navigate to this site. It's chrisorwig.com/demo-color. Let's look at that first web gallery, here it is. We can see this because we went to that folder name. I'm just going to pull this way down here for a second, to illustrate that whatever we include here in this folder name. Well that's going to be how you pull this up on the web. If I want to see the black and white images. Well in this case it's crisorwig.com/demo-bw, and then I can see that web gallery here. And you can see how those images appear, and navigating to that folder is really simple.

Again, it's really just the full URL, forward slash, the folder name. Therefore, if you wanted to email out a link to someone in order to see these pictures, well you would just then email this full URL string. That entire address that you can see in the address bar, which in this case is chrisorwig.com/demo-bw.
