How to publish two versions of your iPhoto albums online, targeting two audiences with different comments associated to photos

When building online photo albums to share with others, there are cases where adding each photo only in one album seems impossible : you’d like to add your photos to more than one album ! Basically the same thing happens with printed photos : just think about how often you order doubles. In many cases, the two copies of your photo will end up in two different albums. Take the example of a simple family album. Maybe you want to make one album for your family to see, and another album for your coworkers to watch on their spare time. Chances are you won’t put the same comments under photos in the two albums, using more private comments in the album you’ll show to your family. If your family consist of two children, you’ll probably want to make an album for each kid, adding comments appropriate to each one (you might even choose to write comments using first person to make it more personal to your child). All this is quite easy using traditional photo albums and printed pictures, but somehow more difficult when using iPhoto. Well, once you know how to do it, it is not that much more difficult ! Read on to know how I do it.

First, I thought the only way to do this would be to duplicate the photo I wanted to publish and change the title on the second copy. When you decide to publish two version of almost every photo album you have, this use much hard disk space ! Then I thought I could use iPhoto ability to publish albums using either titles or comments associated with photos, or both. This is the key to what we want to do !

Suppose you have a photo album ready to be published (or already published, it doesn’t matters), then you want to build a second album with the same photos, but changing some text under photos. First step is to decide if you want the same photos to appear in the second album (no more, no less). If so, skip the last part of this first step to go to the second step. If not, then create a new album and either drag all photos from the first album to the second, then go to the second to delete those you don’t want to see, or only select the ones you want to have in the second album and then drag them to this album. In both cases, if you want to add more photos to the second album, as well as rearranging the photos order, you can do it after the first step.

Second step will be to add in the comments field the new description that will appear in your second album. If the comments field doesn’t appear, click the button marked with a ‘i’ on the bottom-left part of iPhoto, maybe more than once. If for some photos you prefer to keep the same titles as in the first album, it is important that you copy this title to the comments field for them to appear in the second album.

Third, we are now ready to publish ! Choose Export from File menu, then go to the Web Page tab. Make sure you uncheck “Show title” in both Thumbnail and Image sections and check “Show comments” in both. Arrange the other options as you will. When ready, click Export and you’re done !

If you want to see the result, you can browse my photo album on Montreal, and see it both in French and English. This album is a special one where I ask visitors to tell me what is their favorite picture and the one they like the least, this way I can add more photos and only keep the bests ! Enjoy !
