Work with web journal pages
As you work with a web journal, you can add photos and text to pages, add and remove pages, choose header types, and change the page order.
You must manually place your photos and add text on web journal pages.
Add and arrange photos on a web journal page
Select a web journal album in the Library inspector.
Do any of the following:
To add photos to a web journal page: Drag photos from the Browser to the page in the Webpage Editor.
You can also drag several photos into place at once by selecting and dragging groups of photos. For example, if your web journal page is set to display four photos per row, you can arrange four photos in the order you want them and then drag all four to the page at once.
To move photos on a web journal page: In the Webpage Editor, drag a photo to its new position in a photo box, or drag the grid mark at the top of the photo box to move the photo or group of photos to a new location on the page.
A green bar appears to indicate where the photo will be placed.
To remove a photo from a web journal page: In the Webpage Editor, click the photo to select it, and then click the Remove button (–).
Add and arrange text on a web journal page
You can add text boxes to web journal pages as you need them. Text boxes are added to the page one after another. New text boxes are always added to the bottom of the page, but you can drag text boxes to new locations to rearrange them.
On the left side of the Webpage Editor, select the thumbnail of the page to which you want to add text.
Click the Add Text Block button at the top of the Webpage Editor.
Enter the text you want.
To move the text, position the pointer on the grid mark at the top of the text box, drag the text box until you see a green bar appear where you want to place the text, and release the mouse button.
To remove text from a web journal page, select the text box and click the Remove button (–) that appears in the top-right corner.
Add a page to a web journal
You can add pages to your web journal as you need them. You can also have Aperture create pages in your web journal to hold photos that have a type of metadata, such as a specific rating, keyword, or photo date. For example, you can have Aperture create a page for each keyword assigned to the album’s photos and place photos on the correct pages automatically. Or, if your album holds photos with four- and five-star ratings, you can create a page that automatically holds the five-star photos and another that holds the four-star photos.
You can have Aperture add pages for photos based on day, keyword, rating, byline, city, and category.
In the Webpage Editor, select a thumbnail page where you want the new page to appear.
The new page will appear after the selected page.
Do one of the following:
To add a new blank page: Click the Add Page button (+).
To add a new page based on a metadata category: Choose the type of page you want to add from the Page Action pop-up menu .
To remove a web journal page, select its thumbnail, click the Remove Page button (–), and click the Delete button in the dialog that appears.
Choose the header style for a web journal page
Depending on the theme you choose, you can change the look of web journal pages by choosing a style that displays either a heading followed by text or a heading followed by a photo.
Note: The theme applied to the web journal must allow photos in the header.
In the Webpage Editor, select a page’s thumbnail.
Choose either Header with Text or Header with Image from the Page Template pop-up menu .
Reorder web journal pages
In the Webpage Editor, select the thumbnail of the page you want to move.
Choose either Move Current Page Up or Move Current Page Down from the Page Action pop-up menu .
