Modify one iWeb site on more than one Mac
Authored by: albertoricart on Jan 20, '06 08:13:10AM

The sites file is big (huge?), because it contains all your images at full resolution. In some cases it will also contain some monster tiffs (not quite sure how those are getting generated, but relatively small 1MB jpeg can be 'filtered' into a new tiff file that is 37MB+ in size.

Image management in iWeb leaves a lot to be desired (it converts images to pngs that are usually 3-4x the size of the provided jpegs).

Revenue Generation Machine

It is called, in marketing speak, a revenue generation engine! :-)

Imagine how fast that 1GB of .Mac will be chewed up and how fast the .Mac space upgrades roll in once a few hundred thousand people start using iWeb!!! Better buy your stock now!

This shouldn't be a mystery. iWeb saves huge TIFF files because TIFF is the internal format for copying images if you copy an image from an application to another. Copying images and pasting them or even dragging and dropping images from another application (instead of dragging the actual JPG file) will create TIFF files. This is normal and common.

About the PNG files, the reason is probably to use the same format for them all, and since iWeb requires PNG to support rotated images (for the transparency) and it's probably easier to consider normal pics as unrotated ones... well, there.

I'm not saying it's the best option, but I can understand why it was done like that for 1.0.

Me? I'm waiting for additional themes to crop up.
