Introduction: How to Create a Webpage Using Apple's IWeb

We want to show you how to create a webpage using Apple's iWeb application. We will instruct you how to do this in 5 easy steps!

Step 1: Step 1: Opening and Choosing Theme

From your home screen click your applications folder or your launch pad. You will find the iWeb shortcut that will lead you to the app. Click the shortcut and get started by choosing whatever theme you would like for your webpage. 

Step 2: Step 2: Adding Text

To start double click any writing you want to change. We suggest starting with your theme and working around that. Once all the writing is cleared you are ready to customize the writing on your iWeb page. 

Step 3: Step 3 Adding Photos

To add photos to your webpage click the photos option in the top right corner of the app. We suggest saving your photos that you want to use in iPhoto so you can access them easier. Click, drag, then drop any photo you want where you see an existing photo. iWeb will automatically resize your photo for you. If you don't want to use iPhoto as we didn't in the video simply drag and drop   from your desktop or a folder into the iWeb application. 

Step 4: Step 4 Moving Elements on the Page

Once you have all of the elements you want on your webpage it's time to move them around. For text boxes, click once and then move the box wherever you want it. For pictures do the same. You can also click once to resize the picture or adjust the masking. With pictures you can right click and send them to the back and they will show up behind the text you have written. 

Step 5: Step 5 Publishing Your Site

Once your webpage is to your liking you are ready to publish it. To do so, click the top left where you find the site option. It will open up and give you three options Publish, Privacy, and Facebook. First choose what server you want to publish with. If you do not have a FTP server we suggest using MobileMe because of its easiness. If you have selected MobileMe choose a name for your site and a contact email. After this you are ready to publish. Go to the bottom left and click the publish button. After you select this you will be prompted to put in your MobileMe password and user email. Once you login with MobileMe your webpage is ready to share!
