Video: Creating photo pages from iPhoto

So far all the images I have been adding to my iWeb pages have come from a folder of images on my desktop. But one of the main advantages of working with iWeb is its tight integration with the other iLife applications. So in this video, I want to take a look at how to import images into your pages from iPhoto. So let's leave iWeb for just a minute and open iPhoto. Now I don't currently have any photos in iPhoto, so I'm just going to select the ones on my desktop inside the iWeb Photos folder. I'm just going to hit Command+A to select all and just drag those into iPhoto. All right, so now I have some photos in iPhoto.

Creating photo pages from iPhoto

So far all the images I have been adding to my iWeb pages have come from a folder of images on my desktop. But one of the main advantages of working with iWeb is its tight integration with the other iLife applications. So in this video, I want to take a look at how to import images into your pages from iPhoto. So let's leave iWeb for just a minute and open iPhoto. Now I don't currently have any photos in iPhoto, so I'm just going to select the ones on my desktop inside the iWeb Photos folder. I'm just going to hit Command+A to select all and just drag those into iPhoto. All right, so now I have some photos in iPhoto.

Now if you haven't used iPhoto '09 yet, you will probably want to spend sometime with it because it's packed with new features and new ways of organizing your photos like the Faces and Places features, but I'm not going to get into that here. That would be a totally different tutorial. But let's say you have been organizing your pictures in iPhoto and you have put together a collection of pictures that you would like to share on the web. But because of the tight integration within the iLife Suite, you can send photos directly from iPhoto into iWeb and generate a photo page automatically and you can do this in one of two ways. First let me create a small album by dragging some pictures into the Source pane. So I'm just going to hold down the Command key and just select some pictures here. And just drag them into the Source pane and I'll call that album Scenery. Now you don't have to create an album before you send photos to iWeb but I just find it's a good way to keep yourself organized.

Now with the album selected and when I click the iWeb button and notice I have the choice of creating a photo page or a blog page. We're going to be talking about blogs in the next chapter, so I'm going to select Photo Page. I'm automatically taken back to iWeb and asked to choose a template for my page. Notice I'm only given the choice of a Photo Page. If I wanted I could select the Photo Page in another theme but I can only select the Photo Page no matter which theme I choose. So I'll select the Fine Line theme and click Choose.

iWeb will take a moment to import the images and now I have a new Scenery page in my site. You can see it listed here in the Navigation Bar and this works just like the Photo Page we created in the previous movie. I can arrange these in any order I like. I can write or correct captions and I could even add additional photos. So that just shows you the type of integration you have between iPhoto and iWeb. Now the only thing you can't do is add photos from iPhoto to an existing photo page in iWeb. Anytime I come from iPhoto I have to create a new Photo Page.

So if I had more photos in iPhoto that I wanted to add to this particular gallery, I couldn't do that from iPhoto using the iWeb button. But if my photos are already in iPhoto I can get to them in iWeb by opening the Media Gallery by clicking Show Media and here under Photos I have access to my entire iPhoto Library which I can search by Events or Photos or Last Import and I can drag additional photos into an existing photo page from here. So basically that's it. When you are in iPhoto, just select the pictures that you want to import into an iWeb Photo Page. Again I like to create albums but if you just want to select individual images and then click iWeb Photo Page, you can do that as well. You can also select entire events. So if you have an entire event of photos and you want to send all of those photos over into iWeb Photo Page, just select the event, click iWeb photo page, pick your theme, and there it is. So that's how we work between iPhoto and iWeb.
