How to create a web photo gallery

Proudly display your snaps online

There's only so much sitting around and looking at photo albums we can squeeze into a trip to Granny and Grandad's. By showcasing your creative talents online, family and friends can admire them in their own time.

1. We’re using Photoshop Elements to make our online photo gallery. Open the Organizer and select your photos, then hit the Create tab and choose Photo Galleries. Select Web Galleries from the Type drop-down menu. Choose a layout by clicking on the preview thumbnail images. Click Next.

2. You can add text to your gallery, such as a title, a caption and your name and email address. You can also alter the slide duration and transition effects between images. Save your gallery somewhere convenient, then click ‘Preview in Browser…’ to see how it will display online.

3. To share your gallery with others you need to upload the files to a server or FTP site. Click the Share To drop-down menu. Choose Share, then either Photoshop Showcase or My FTP Site from the drop-down list. For the latter, enter the server address, username, password and folder. Click Save.

Your photo gallery will be saved automatically and you can enter a name for the disc. If you just want to save your gallery, choose ‘Do Not Share’ from the Share To drop-down menu, then click Save.
