Use an open-source iPhoto web album creation script Apps
I wrote a Ruby script (14KB download) to generate simple static web albums from iPhoto albums. It requires the installation of RubyAEOSA (used to access AppleScript from Ruby). There are also installation and usage instructions on my site.

Here is an example of a web album created with the script. Unlike some of the other apps/scripts that do this for free, this one is open source and released with a BSD license, so you can do whatever you want to it. Hopefully someone will find it useful.

[robg adds: I haven't tested this one yet, though I did install RubyAEOSA and hope to work with the script a bit later this week. If I find anything useful, I'll post an update.]

Use an open-source iPhoto web album creation script

Thanks for this hint. iPhoto's export feature is not nearly customizable enough, but this script is doing the job. One feature I would appreciate is the option to pull the photo title from iPhoto into the script in addition to the filename. I really don't need the camera info. I made a couple of attempts to get the title into the script but haven't succeeded yet. I haven't messed with scripting much, so I'll just keep trying, but if you can give me a pointer, that'd be great. Thanks.
