Video: Creating blog entries from iPhoto

I want to show you the Photo blogging feature in iPhoto because it does tie into iWeb. Let's switch over to iPhoto. So here in iPhoto, I have some pictures that I want to add to my blog. Now we saw earlier that with Photo selected, you can easily create an iWeb photo gallery by clicking iWeb and then choosing Photo Page. The other option here is Blog. iPhoto takes some moment to prepare the photos. Back in iWeb, let's see what happened. I now have a separate blog entry for each photo I sent over. Now depending on what you are trying to do, this could be either good or bad. It's bad if you wanted to provide a gallery of photos for people to check out. If that's what you want, you should select the Photo Page option in iPhoto.

Creating blog entries from iPhoto

I want to show you the Photo blogging feature in iPhoto because it does tie into iWeb. Let's switch over to iPhoto. So here in iPhoto, I have some pictures that I want to add to my blog. Now we saw earlier that with Photo selected, you can easily create an iWeb photo gallery by clicking iWeb and then choosing Photo Page. The other option here is Blog. iPhoto takes some moment to prepare the photos. Back in iWeb, let's see what happened. I now have a separate blog entry for each photo I sent over. Now depending on what you are trying to do, this could be either good or bad. It's bad if you wanted to provide a gallery of photos for people to check out. If that's what you want, you should select the Photo Page option in iPhoto.

But if you want to quickly set up several blog entries at once or even a single blog entry with a single photo you are working with an iPhoto, Blog is the right choice. iWeb automatically creates a blog entry in your existing blog, or if you have more than one blog in your iWeb site, you will get a menu asking you to select which blog you want the photos to go into. And if you don't currently have a blog in iWeb, you will get a prompt asking you to pick either a blog template or a podcast template. So if I intended to create all these entries, I would now go through and start typing a little bit about each picture, or making some kind of entry, or otherwise customizing each one of these different entries. In fact, I don't really want all of these entries in here right now, so I'm just going to select them and delete them.

That's just another way to create a blog entry or multiple blog entries from iPhoto. It would be a nice feature to take advantage of, if you were going through your photos in iPhoto while on a trip. If you realize one of your photos would make a great picture to accompany a blog entry, you could can just select it, choose iWeb blog, and then just start typing your entry. That is opposed to how having to switch to iWeb, create a new entry by choosing Add Page, choosing the blog page, and then navigating through, and finding that photo in your iPhoto library. It's much quicker just to go directly from iPhoto into iWeb.
