Any ways to further customize html export?
Authored by: cmdawson on Feb 05, '03 11:11:37AM

I use the html export function, but it is so limited. Hard
to believe they only added "Prev, Up, Next" links to the
photo album pages between iPhoto1 and 2. Also, it's too bad
the fonts cannot be specified. I end up changing all mine
over to Arial using a text editor...no fun.
Anyone tried BetterHTMLExport plugin? Any sample pages or
comments on this shareware? My iPhoto pages are at http://cmdawson.com
....if you want a "before" example :).

I use the BetterHTMLExport (and have registered it) and it is worth it, here is an example of a quick template that I tossed together in about 5 minutes Enchanted Tower the amount of information that it can get from iPhoto is fantastic and it is really easy to use, though the instructions and method for making custom templates is rough. I like it. S

I used the BetterHTMLExport with iPhoto 1 and it worked well. The template language is pretty customizable. So much so, that I had actually configured it to export XML instead of HTML. I then used XSLT on my webserver to do the formatting on-the-fly.

Too bad it went from free to shareware with the upgrade to 2.0. I'm thinking of writing my own program to export one album's worth of data and images from iPhoto (that's what I generally want to do) instead of paying for the new version.

You do know that you can do simple text replacement at command line, right? Just do something like:
sed 's/Helvetica/Arial/g' fn.html > fn_new.html
This works well with shell scripts, which could potentially save you a lot of time. You might also consider a style sheet, but that's a little over-board when all you may want is a simple gallery.
