i just love it. not many functions but very easy.MUCKYFINGERS said:i dont feel like typing all the particular reasons i'm disappointed with it, but does anyone else feel like they expected more from apple this time?
i agree that the blog/podcast/etc specialty pages are nice and simple, i enjoyed the blog feature the most out of all of the features in iWeb. maybe i'll try giving it another go when i get home from work...Thom_Edwards said:on the contrary. i find it to be perfect, as long as you don't expect it to be dreamweaver, golive or some other app (dare i mention front page?!?!?!?). to put together a simple site with some pictures to share or a few blog lines or stuff like that, i think it's perfect. it's not meant to build sites that win design awards or make people visit it based purely on some flash-like coolness hype. they don't expect you to know html, and that is quite fine. (just like in garageband they don't expect you to know key signatures and chord progressions.) if you want more advanced stuff, go to a more advanced app.
i put together a cool little site for my niece's 2-year birthday in about 15 minutes. the image manipulation, being able to spin, layer and mask is pretty nifty. just right
Don't worry I'm disappointed with it as well. It's too template based (I only like the modern one), and I don't think there is a lot of freedom in it. And I though Apple was about 'Think Different'MUCKYFINGERS said:i dont feel like typing all the particular reasons i'm disappointed with it, but does anyone else feel like they expected more from apple this time?
Not that I own iWeb myself, but I thought I heard at the Apple store that you can export your page as HTML. Maybe I'm wrong, as I'm just starting HTML, but couldn't you just edit that in TextEdit or TextWrangler after you've done the basics in iWeb?MUCKYFINGERS said:it may be because i am used to using dreamweaver and am used to editing html myself, i was expecting a program comparable to dreamweaver or frontpage, but for a simple beginner's program, it gets the job done.
You can indeed create a folder called iWeb or whatever and then this will come up in the "media viewer" in iWeb to save you time.dr427 said:I will soon have iLife '06.
Can you create an album (mabye call it iWeb) in iPhoto of just the pics you want to use for iweb? (avoid the library view). My thoughts are that I would resize the images with imagewell in .png format to help overcome this issue of large png files.
