Step 1: Select images
To select the images you want to export either hit Cmd+A to select all, drag a box around the ones you want, or select individual photos by Cmd+clicking.
Step 2: File>Export
Next, you want to open up the Export dialog. Choose File, then Export, or if you would rather use a keyboard shortcut hit Cmd+Shift+E, which has the same effect.
Step 3: File types
The first option in the window is File Export, which enables you to choose the file type that you want to use when you save your shots.
Step 4: Quality
If you choose JPEG, the most-used format, you’ll need to choose a quality setting. The higher the quality the bigger the file, so be careful if size could be an issue.
Step 5: Get organised
iPhoto gives you options for renaming your shots in several ways. You can use the photo’s titles, but if you haven’t altered them, the final option may be best.
Step 6: Web Page
The second tab holds the Web Page option, which allows you to export your snaps as a web gallery. Turn the page for more information on how to do this.
Step 7: QuickTime
The next tab contains options for QuickTime. You can quickly export your images as a movie. Alter the fields on display to change the quality if you wish.
Step 8: Colours and sound
You can alter the background colour for your video, so images that don’t fit into your frame will have a backing. You can also add music.
Step 9: Slideshow
To give your video a unique look you can change the options in the Slideshow section, then export the finished article at different sizes.
