These instructions were written for Photoshop version 5.5. Later versions introduced more templates and options, but these instructions should be enough to get you started. :~

*************************************************************************************************

  1. Prepare your photos for the Web by rotating, cropping, resizing, and color correcting, if necessary. Refer to the related information in the links below for tips on prepping your pictures.
  2. Places the photos you want to include in the gallery in a folder on your hard drive.
  3. Choose an empty folder or create a new one to use as a destination folder for the files created by the Photo Gallery command.

************************************************************************************************
Step 1: Open Photoshop & Go to File > Automate > Web Photo Gallery to open the photo gallery dialog box.

 

Step 2: At the very top of the window, take some time to choose the template you like best under the Styles drop down menu. Keep in mind that the Flash Template will take more bandwidth, require more time to load, and must be supported by a flash plugin (which most web browsers have anyway). With this in mind, the Flash-based styles do look very modern and attractive. You can see below in this image:

Step 3: Below that, insert your email address if you want it to be published on your site. If not, then just leave this segment blank.

Step 4: Now you have a photo gallery dialog box on your computer screen, click the “choose” button and select the folder containing your images. If thefolder contains sub-folders with images you want to include, check the box to include subdirectories.

Step 5: Next to Destination, click the “choose” button and select the empty folder. (I created it on my desktop)

Step 6: In the Site Name field, type a title that will appear on all the pages of your gallery. This is the text that also appears in the title bar when the page is viewed in a Web browser.

Step 7: If desired, fill in the Phototographer and Date fields. This information will also appear on the Web pages if it’s filled in.

Step 7: Click OK in the photo gallery dialog box.

And you’re done it!

Your Photo Gallery should automatically launch in your Web browser.

Here’s my Web Photo Gallery:

~: Thank you! :~
