Export webpages as HTML files

After you create webpages in Aperture, you can export them as HTML files so that they can be added to your website. Integrating your Aperture webpages into your website requires you to thoroughly understand your website structure and web server. If you use a web design service to create and maintain your site, you can supply your Aperture files to your design service and allow the design service to integrate your Aperture webpages.

When you export your Aperture webpages, you can export them to a folder on your computer to keep them organized in one place. You can name the folder and choose the image quality and file types that are created. Aperture provides web export presets that automatically set up the export of webpages, and you can also create your own. For more information, see Work with web export presets.
